About London

A major global city, London attracts visitors from around the world with its vibrant culture and centuries of history. Live like a local with your pick of London vacation rentals, and settle in to enjoy this stunning European metropolis.

Climate

London has a temperate oceanic climate, which means the weather is generally mild year-round. Though it’s considered a rainy city, London actually enjoys plenty of sun, especially during the summer months. Temperatures in July and August generally top out around 75 degrees, while winter temperatures hover in the 40s. Keep in mind that central London is often about five degrees warmer than the city’s outskirts.

Transit

Though visitors can certainly drive through London, you’ll never need to. No matter where your London vacation rental is situated, there’s a good chance you’ll be within easy walking distance of an Underground stop or a bus stop, making it easy to explore the city by public transit or on foot. Nicknamed “the tube,” the subway is very easy for tourists to get around and Oyster cards are available for longer stays. If you’d rather be above ground and off your feet, hop on and off one of the city’s iconic double-decker red buses or hire one of London’s famous black taxis. Both are easy to spot throughout the metropolitan area!

Neighborhoods

London is a huge city, and it can be hard to tell which neighborhoods are both safe and economical when searching through London vacation rentals. The city is generally broken down into four parts: the West End, which includes Soho and Covent Garden, the City of London, which is just a small section of the wider city, the South Bank, which is on the other side of the Thames, and the East End. Generally speaking, the further west you go in London, the wealthier the area is. For ultimate convenience, most visitors prefer to stay somewhat near the Thames.

Things to Do

Months can be spent in London without seeing all of the sights. If you don’t have time to visit all of the attractions up close, get a great view of the city from the London Eye. It’s basically a giant Ferris wheel bordering the Thames, that boasts unsurpassed views of the Palace of Westminster, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and more. For a more historical perspective, book a tour of the Elizabeth Tower and Big Ben, where you can hear the famous clock strike the hour while taking in majestic views of London.
