London became my new home in 2012 and since then I haven’t stopped to discover the city.
I remember when I first moved in the U.K. It was hard and I felt lost & lonely.
I would like to show you this beautiful city through my eyes and my London journal.
London has 48 neighborhoods.
As you can imagine it’s very hard to visit the city in one go.
London has a very fast-paced lifestyle. It’s incredible how shops are closed down and new pop-ups appear.
When Simon Johnson said:
You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
He was saying an important truth. London changes so quickly, every day you find something new to see, do, discover…
As a tourist, if it will be your first visit you should take between 7 and 10 days to really visit the city. Obviously, you can still do it in fewer days, however, you will have to skip more attractions and spend less time in each place.
Below, you can find my latest favourite neighborhoods. (Latest because I always find something new that makes me change my mind.)
- Shoreditch (street arts, second hand & antique markets, clubs);
- Soho (lively LGBT community, Chinatown, Tattoo shops, night live);
- Brixton (nice markets and independent shops, very alternative);
- Mayfair (Museum, elegant, wealthy).
