The area of London had been settled as early as in the Bronze Age. However, the basis of the modern city was formed by Londinium, the Roman settlement that was established in 47 AD. After the downfall of the Roman Empire, the city was revived by the Anglo-Saxons and Norsemen and later turned into an important medieval trading hub. Over the course of its history, the city grew together with Westminster, the former governmental city and British capital, which is why London has 2 city centers.

Of course, its age-long monarchy means that you cannot visit London without paying a visit to some of the most famous buildings that were built by dynasties of kings and queens. The Buckingham Palace certainly is the most famous one among them. It is the residence of the Queen and open to visitors during the summer months. A monument with a somewhat more sombre past is the Tower of London, which was most famously built by Wilhelm the Conqueror in 1066 and the site of many a royal death by execution. It is where Elizabeth I, Mary Tudor, Lady Jane Grey, and many more were held during some time in their lives. Also, crossing the Tower Bridge at least once and taking a photo at the Piccadilly Circus kind of have to be on your program as well. Another must-see is Westminster Abbey, which is the place where the royal coronations were held since 1066. Today, it also is a World Heritage Site! Close-by, you will find the Big Ben in the Palace of Westminster, which also is seat of the United Kingdom parliament. Round off your trip with a picnic in Hyde or Kensington Park.

Being one of the world’s most well-developed cities, London has a truly extensive public transport network. The city is that large that you can easily get lost – so buy a map! The metro, bus, DLR or tram literally bring you anywhere. We recommend you to walk whenever possible and to take buses for the rest of the time to really experience the city.

If you want to take advantage of the warmer time of the year to travel to London, do so between May and September. London is a mild city, which means it never gets really cold. However, temperatures may drop to 0 degrees in winter. Always bring along an umbrella, as UK weather can change several times a day!
