There is a lot to discover in London, so much that I need to make two London guides for you readers ๐Ÿ™‚ London is an incredibly cozy city that I like very much. For me there is something special about traveling to London. The city gives me a lot of energy and the best of all is that many attractions doesnยดt cost anything, such as the magnificent Hyde Park, the guardshift at Buckingham Palace, the archeological treasures of the British Museum, walking across the Tower Bridge or a visit to Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus.

7. Notting Hill

Notting Hill

Lovely Notting Hill is a must when you are in London. Start the day with a walk to Notting Hill, preferably on a Sunday, to experience the Sunday market that is popular here. I had actually never been to Notting Hill before and enjoyed it very much. A really cozy area in London ๐Ÿ™‚
Notting Hill

I could imagine how Julia Roberts walked around here from the movie “Notting Hill” and for me it was extra nice to pass by the “blue gate” where Hugh Grant lived ๐Ÿ™‚ The blue gate and the bookstore are still left from the movie Notting Hill. Of course, I had to go inside the bookstore to see what it really looked like ๐Ÿ™‚

Regent street

The big shopping and main street in London is called Oxford street, so of course I have to give it a try for some shopping. But even if you donยดt do shopping, it’s a great place to just feel the pulse surrounding you. I love to stop at a certain place and breath for few minutes and take in all impressions and environment around me. Thatยดs exactly what I did, ย standing in the middle of Oxford street. That is my best tips no matter where I travel today, I enjoy the moment and the place I’m at ๐Ÿ™‚

Discovering London during evening time is magic! So many beautiful buildings that are lighten up! It is a special mood to stroll around on London streets when the darkness falls. Personally, I think it’s safe to walk on London’s streets, as long as you go wherever it’s street lights ๐Ÿ™‚ The city gets extra cozy and beautiful when it’s dark outside ๐Ÿ™‚
