Where I stayed: Conrad London-St. James. This hotel is located in a terrific location,walking distance to all major sightseeing attractions including Westminster Abbey, Big Ben & Parliament, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace.  The hotel is conveniently situated right across the street from the St. James's Place Underground stop. 

Getting around: I recommend getting a day pass for the London Underground. Depending on what zone you will be traveling in, it costs around 9 GBP for the day pass.  The city is also very walker friendly, so another option.

What to see: London boasts a lot of great sightseeing attractions! I recommend seeing Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, walking through St. James's Park (near Buckingham Palace),  the Tower of London & the London Bridge, the financial district in the City of London, shopping on Regent Street (between Oxford Circus & Piccadilly Circus) and eating in Soho. 

How to get there: I flew British Airways, however, most major airlines fly in and out of London. I recommend taking the express train from the airport into the city (both Gatwick & Heathrow have express train service for around 20 GBP) as cabs can range from 60 GBP and up. You can plan your trip to London here.

I hope you have enjoyed these pictures and I hope it inspires you to take a vacation to London soon for your next photography adventure!
