London Neighborhood Guides

The City of London

What to do in the City of London Ye Olde Mitre 2

This is the old historic center of the city and where you will find sites like the Tower of London, London Bridge, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. You will also find some of the city’s oldest pubs hidden on tiny side streets in the City of London.

Covent Garden

Covent Garden 7

A lively part of London filled with shopping and restaurants. Discover colorful courtyards hidden from the main street, a museum devoted to London transport, and antique gas lamps that are still used today. Some of my favorite pubs are here too.

Chelsea and Kensington

While most people think of Notting Hill when they think of London’s colorful streets, some of London’s most vibrantly painted homes are in Chelsea. Be sure to visit Kensington Palace, a part is open to the public, plus The Design Museum and Saatchi Gallery.

Notting Hill

One of the most well-known neighborhoods in London, Notting Hill is the place to find the famed Portabello Road Market, antique shops, pastel-colored homes, and art galleries. Sadly, the travel book shop from the film Notting Hill doesn’t exist, but there is a sign marking its location.

Soho is a vibrant arts district and a must-see London neighborhood. It is home to London’s theater district and exceptional shopping. If you want to do something a bit unusual, search for the seven noses of Soho.

Home to some of the trendiest shops and best high-end hotels, this pair of neighborhoods is home to three of London’s most spectacular streets for shopping: Bond Street, Oxford Street, and Regent Street. Baker Street and the Sherlock Holmes Museum are here too.

Camden isn’t a neighborhood, it is a borough that contains Camden Town and stretches from Hampstead Heath almost all way the to the Thames. Camden Market is a can’t miss market filled with food vendors, antique stalls, and all sorts of shopping. Sites like the British Museum, Little Venice, and Primrose Hill are all within this borough.

St. John’s Wood

This residential neighborhood is where you will find the famous Abbey Road crosswalk and Lord’s Cricket Ground.


What to do in Hampstead Flask Walk

The sprawling Hampstead Heath is what this neighborhood is known for. Beyond the park, visit a pub that dates back to 1585, see the beautiful Hampstead Village, the downtown of the neighborhood and one of the most expensive parts of London to reside, and tour Kenwood House, a free estate turned museum.

London Side Trips

Castle Combe and Lacock

Castle Combe is one of the most scenic towns in the Cotswolds. Castle Combe is so small that it would be hard to spend an entire day there, so it makes sense to also visit Lacock, a nearby village with an abbey that was a filming location for movies like Harry Potter. This is a great full-day trip.

Harry Potter Studio Tour

Harry Potter Studio Tour London 10

Just outside London you will find the studio where the Harry Potter movies were filmed. It’s a fascinating and fun day trip for Potterheads, just make sure you book tickets in advance.

The Holiday Filming Locations (Shere and Godalming)

the holiday filming locations shere 8

A guide to some of the most charming small towns in Surrey.


What to do in Bath, England

This city is an easy train ride from London. It’s a smaller, easy-to-navigate city known for its Roman Baths and exceptional architecture. If you watch Bridgerton, Bath will look familiar since it is a major filming location for the series. I recommend spending a night or two in Bath, it’s lovely, and you will want time to visit the spa.
