Kensington and Chelsea
London is home to three-quarters of the worlds wealthiest people. For this reason, it’s hardly surprising that there is a borough that is home to the most illustrious in the city. After enjoying a delightful lunch at the Crescent Restaurant and Lounge, we recommend that you head to the borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Here you will find pristine tree-lined streets, with endless rows of the most stunning Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Home to some of the biggest names in the UK, from the Beckhams to Sir David Attenborough, this borough is truly a celebrity hotspot. This borough is also home to the fantastic museum district, which is a must for first-time tourists in London.
We could not write about the must-see boroughs of London without including the royal borough of Westminster. Home to some of the most iconic sites in the city, Westminster promises endless selfie opportunities and tours that are on every tourists’ bucket list. Watch the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace before heading down to Parliament Square, where you will pass not only Westminster Abbey, but also the famous Big Ben Clock Tower. By booking accommodation in one of the fantastic hotels near Central London, you will be able to reach this borough by foot, through the gorgeous Royal Parks that run through the city.
If you are seeking quirky experiences surrounded by eccentric people, look no further than the borough of Camden. The perfect borough to people-watch, Camden is home to the fantastic market that offers unique fashion and trinkets that tourists and locals alike love. Camden is also home to some of the best live music venues in the city, so a visit to one of the sidebars is a must for any tourist visiting this wonderful borough.
