Facebook Conversation About London Sparks 50 Practical Tips

Talking Dogs - I heart London!

34. black check My second favorite thing was a Thames River cruise. It was cool floating under London Bridge. (Donna M.R.)

35. black check The museums are wonderful. For art, hit Tate, Tate Modern (even if you don't like modern art, the building itself is worth seeing - it used to be a power station), National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery. See also the British Museum and the Victoria & Albert. I don't bother much with restaurants and shopping (the street markets are fun though); but I like going to old pubs. Good ethnic food is everywhere. (Meg C.)

36. black check Last couple of times in London I've stayed on Cromwell Rd in South Kensington, close to the Gloucester Rd tube station, as it's a straight shot on the Piccadilly line from Heathrow. I also like the Bayswater neighborhood- close to Hyde Park and good hotel deals can be found there. (Meg C.)

37. black check Check out London Walks: (Steve S.)

38. black check Fun fact. Harvey Nichols is a great fancy shopping stop. They serve great meals in the café. And ...they offer free charging stations for phone and laptops. What a treat. (Lee L.)

39. black check The poshest of the posh. Tea at The Ritz is nothing less than an institution. It has become so popular that there are now five sittings every day at 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm, 5.30pm and 7.30pm. Booking at least four weeks in advance is essential. Afternoon tea is served in the elegant Palm Court with music by a pianist or a harpist. (Evelyn H.)

40. black check My favorite thrift shop is Trinity Hospice Charity Shop, 25 Turnham Green Terrace, London W4. It's two minutes walk from Turnham Green tube on the District Line. Bonus! Here's the full listing of second hand shops for you to choose from. (Evelyn H.)

41. black check Books for Cooks, Notting Hill's famous cookbook shop is crammed with thousands of tasty titles and equipped with a squashy sofa for cookbook junkies in need of a long read. Website:

42. black check I don't like to use Debit / Credit Cards for daily expenses: I change money at the Post Office near St Martin in the Fields Church.

43. black check I stayed at the London House Hotel last month. Cute neighborhood, easy access to public transport, restaurants, tourist areas, inexpensive single occupancy rooms available, great customer service! (Wendy B.)

44. black check I like to stay at the Doubletree Hilton in Westminster (it used to be called The City). It's near transportation and tourist areas. Close to the Thames and nice places to walk. Is within a 15-minute walk of Tate Britain, Big Ben, and Houses of Parliament. Parliament Square and Westminster Abbey. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast buffet that is included! (Diane S.R.)

45. black check I like to stay at the Russell square area. Several nice, small inexpensive hotels near great transport hubs and affordable restaurants. Quiet neighborhood. (Evelyn B.)

46. black check I like to stay at The Goring a luxury hotel in Belgravia. Check their website for all their special offers. The location is fantastic and there is no better hotel staff anywhere. (Michelle M.)

47. black check I rented a flat through London Perfect in Chelsea over Thanksgiving. I used the Paris Perfect for a two week stay in Paris. Works for me as a Celiac so I can have a safe breakfast. (Mary M.)

48. black check I love the Covent Garden area as it's close to many attractions you can walk to. Stayed at a flat rented through VRBO in the Seven Dials area. I have also stayed at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel near Tower of London. It's a 6-minute walk from Tower Hill tube station (Patty P.)

49. black check Hamleys toy store is huge. Several floors in fact. I took my grandchildren there. We all had fun and they didn't want to leave. (Evelyn H)

50. black check Where to stay in London? I search the Premier Inns site by entering 'London' and my dates; then look for the best deal. It's a chain with many properties throughout the UK. Clean, basic, breakfast extra (but kids eat free). (Kathleen L.)

Wow London Tip!
