Who doesn’t know this famous London neighborhood? This neighborhood in West London’s Kensington and Chelsea district became famous in the 90’s because of the movie ‘Notting Hill’ (starring Julia Roberts). Notting Hill has been frequented visit ever since by tourists. This district has so much to offer that it is now one of the hippest areas in London. A neighborhood that feels like a village itself.

Soho is busy and a bit noisy but it’s a nice area in London if you want to go to a theater or to go out in pubs. Soho is mainly a nightlife area. It’s a small multicultural neighborhood between Regent Street, Leicester Square and Oxford Street, among others. Soho = music and great for going out!

Southwark is in the south of the Thames. There are many restaurants to find including Borough Market (considered at the best food market in London) and many beautiful old warehouses. The view over the London Skyline is fantastic and you can easily reach major attractions such as Big Ben and Tower Bridge.
Shoreditch used to be a bad neighborhood in London, but the past years it has grown to a nice and safe area to visit and stay. Shoreditch can be considered as a creative and chaotic. As far as I’m concerned, this creative area is the ‘real London’. Fans of street art can indulge themselves in Shoreditch. You will street art on almost every street corner. If the weather is nice, we can highly recommend to visit the city garden Nomadic Community Garden. Shoreditch has a lot of bars so it’s also a nice area to stay in if you want to see London's nightlife. Take a look at Brick Lane as you can find the best curry in London. Are you into Indian restaurants? Then you should go to the right place at Dishoom. Be on time because this restaurant has a long queue every night.
