London is a visitor friendly place and travelling around in London is very well provided for, with various forms of transportation. The most common mode of transport is the  London Underground (aka The Tube) and it operates throughout the day [from early morning to late at night]. Other forms include  buses, taxis etc. The whole city is divided into 6 zones with zone 1 and 2 referred to as 'Central London'.

With London's endless choice of theatres, sports and music venues, you won't be short of entertainment. This is the place to be if you're looking for world-class art, exhibitions, music and more. More unbiased information can be found at Visit London.

Accommodation in London offers a variety of choices from budget low room rate [starting from £30] to high class luxury rooms [more than £1,000]. The best hotel which I have stayed at is The Ritz and the best priced [in terms of location, service and price] is the Regent Palace. More information on choice of the hotels, price comparisons, amenities, photographs of rooms, and online booking can be found at London Hotels.

Finding a place to eat in London is a difficult task not because of a scarcity of restaurants but because there's such a wide variety and number of places. Chinese, Indian and Italian are the most popular cuisines in London. London Eating provides an easy way to identify the closest restaurants of your choice of cuisine. But London is an expensive place in an expensive country. So mind your wallet! When going out for dinner a rough guideline is: £5 per person: Sandwich Shop, £10-20 per person: Pub, £15-30 per person: cheap to medium class restaurant, £50-100 per person: nice restaurant, £100 and above: Savoy or Ritz.

For theatre loving people London offers unmatched opportunities. There are musicals, dramas, comedies; the list is endless. The main theatres are located in Central London and all information/bookings etc can be found in Leicester Square. Online information and bookings can be found here.
