Timeless London Attractions

A guide to the cultural capital of the world,
for lovers of art, history & the good life

Welcome to Timeless London Attractions, an independent travel guide celebrating the best that London has to offer, its fascinating historical heritage and abundant cultural wealth.

Buckingham Palace

London is a vast, sprawling, frequently chaotic city... and I love it! I've lived here for 20 years now - almost the whole of my adult life - and I can honestly say that London has never lost its magic for me.

If you're reading this, there's a good chance it's because you're planning a trip to London. And, if that's the case, you won't be disappointed. London has so much to offer. It would be impossible to cram all its attractions into ten visits, let alone one.

But, for this very reason, it can seem overwhelming, especially if you have limited time at your disposal. It can be difficult to know where to start - which, hopefully, is where Timeless London Attractions comes in.

I've been exploring this city for years, pounding its streets, walking the length and breadth of it. On my travels, I've discovered some wonderful places - not just the more obvious tourist attractions, but some lesser-known gems. And now I want to share these discoveries with you.

Ye Old Cock Tavern Z  Fleet Street, London

Of course, there are plenty of key sights you won't want to miss, especially if this is your first trip. Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, the British Museum, the Tower of London... I cover all these, together with all the main practical considerations: where to stay and how to get around, as well as how to save money on your sightseeing.

But that's not all there is to London. The magic is in the details. A centuries-old City pub, an atmospheric café, a lunchtime concert in a tiny church, a hidden architectural masterpiece, a cobbled street - these are the things that can make a stay in this most wonderful of cities extra special.

So browse these pages, see what captures your imagination... and please remember that Timeless London Attractions is a work in progress, constantly evolving.

Thanks for visiting the site, and if, at the moment, you can't find what you're looking for, or you have a particular question, drop me a line and I'll do my best to help.
