Which tips useful while travel to London?
Whether you love history, architecture, food, theatre, music or nightlife, you should visit the great London. The capital of England is one of the most popular destinations on the planet for good reason, as there are so many landmarks and attractions waiting to be explored. You can meet real England gentlemen, and it is better for you to find a travel mate in the UK with you to show you around the romantic Enngland. But before you plan your route, here are a few tips to keep in mind when traveling around London:
Check the weather
This is a daily necessity for the British. It rains all the time in England, so the British always take an umbrella when they go out. While winter in the UK is usually wet and dark, summer can be a bit erratic. One minute may be sunny, and the next minute it will rain, so put on more clothes for safety.
With clear weather, summer is usually the best time to visit London, and you can also experience many festivals in the city, such as love story, Cuban mardi gras and the city of London festival.
Travel via the London Underground
Londoners will swear by the Underground, because they know it is the best way to travel from A to B across the capital. Don’t spend money on a car rental, because you will be paying to be stuck in a traffic jam. Whether you want to travel from Heathrow to Victoria, or Canary Wharf to Stratford, purchase a money-saving Oyster card will ensure you can easily navigate your way across the city on the Underground.
Enjoy a Pint in a Pub
It would be a crime to visit London and not drop into a great British pub, which is filled with characters, atmosphere and a wide selection of drinks. Brits love nothing more than a nice pint or glass of wine, so visit the traditional watering hole for a true taste of the UK. You won’t be short on pubs across London, so be sure to stop by for a drink after a busy day of sightseeing.
Visit the best attractions
Whether you're in London for a week or a month, it's hard to get used to the many attractions London offers visitors. So it's worth it to plan where and when you want to go and make sure you don't miss a wonderful experience. For example, you can visit HRH residence at Buckingham Palace, see a theatre show in the west end, ride the London Eye or visit the historic Tower of London.

Understand the currency exchange rate
Don't go to London without knowing the rate of exchange. For example, $1,000 May sound like a lot of money, but you'll only receive half of it, or a little more when the cash is converted into pounds. Also, London is notoriously expensive compared to the rest of the UK, so your money goes a lot further in London than in Liverpool or Glasgow.
With all of the above tips on traveling to London, I hope you will have a memorable trip. It would be great to meet an English gentleman to date and enjoy the romantic journey in London.
