Before visiting the capital of London, it’s very easy to get lost in the image of seeing yourself visiting the premiere attractions. From London Eye to Big Ben or a cruise along the River Thames – just imagining some of the possible experiences in a city feels great.
Naturally, when we do end up visiting the capital, we more often than not try to relive our imaginative meanderings as best we can. Of course, we do our best to allow for some spontaneity, but how can we grow our curiosity to make sure we don’t follow the conventional tourist script?
What are the most famous streets in London?
Famous streets in London have helped popularise the city all across the globe and have been depicted in numerous movies. Avenues such as Oxford Street, Piccadilly, King’s Road, Abbey Road (part of the Beatles album cover), Carnaby Street, Baker Street (home to Sherlock Holmes), Portobello Road, Shaftesbury Avenue, The Strand, and Downing Street (Prime minister’s housing) – comprise the top 10 street venues in London.
Should you visit these spots?
While visiting some of the best attractions in the city is certainly more glamorous and entertaining, if you’re looking to indulge yourself in an authentic understanding of the city, then we recommend you do. Of course, you won’t have to visit all of these streets but merely a few of them. Doing so will mean you’re likelier to leave the capital feeling like you got to know the place from start to finish.
Beyond the surface appeal of London, there’s much more than meets the eye. Taking long walks across some of the streets as mentioned earlier – is the only way you can get the full breadth of the London experience.
What you’ll quickly notice during your period of stay here, is just how much variety this city offers. It can be hard to pin down an exact character for London, but with enough time and exploration, you’ll be able to understand better what it represents. So why not book your stay at the Piccadilly London West End and enjoy the restaurants West End London, along with everything else it has to offer.
