London is obviously one of the most popular cities in the U.K., To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the most popular city in the world.

Culture and Tourists
Whenever I visit London, I am of course a tourist exploring the beautiful city, but what I love most is how diverse the culture is. It is amazing how so many people from around the world can meet in one city to enjoy exploring, traveling, meeting, and assisting one another with their travels. Meeting new people is what I love to do most, and to be honest, a great way to meet new people is to ask them to take a photo for you – trust me they will help you because everyone is so friendly!
The London Underground is a public rapid transit system to assist individuals with their daily activities. Trains are available between 2-5 minutes which make it very convenient. Most of the trains are underground, although some appear to be overground. The underground has its origins in the Metropolitan Railway, the worlds first underground passenger railway (read more here).
I have used the underground every time I have visited London, even if the places I am going to are one stop away. The London Underground is definitely something that everyone has to have the experience of using. I love using them so much that I actually find it kind of fun.
London is very well-known for its history including the Plague, Civil War and the stories of Jack the Ripper. There are many historical places to visit in London, not only the museums, but tourist attractions focused on specific events. In Addition, The Royal Family are of course very important to the U.K. and one of the prime examples of why Lonon is so popular.
London West End
As a Drama student, of course, this would be one of the reasons why I love London. London Wet End is absolutely mesmerizing. There are always at least 6 shows that are available to the public. I have watched a wide variety of shows at Piccadilly Circus including, Wicked and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I 100% recommend visiting a show in the theatres as they are incredible, even if you are not a huge fan, I am positive you will love it!
With plenty of street foods, fast foods, and restaurants you will definitely have a lot of options. There are many places to try new foods from all over the world. The street markets offer a wide variety of foods. I recommend trying a little bit of everything, so you get the full experience.
These are just some of the things that I love about London, what do you love most about London?
