“What are your recommendations for where to eat in London?”
Because there are thousands of restaurants in London, and everyone’s situation and tastes are different, I’ve put all of my top local-approved food recommendations in The Local Guide to London, as well as a select few in my 3-Day London Itinerary.
“Do you know of someone who can take some nice photos of me in London?”
My personal opinion is that there’s so much to do in London (especially if you get off the tourist trail) that you don’t need to do a day trip. If you really want to, go for it, but I’d recommend skipping the tours that take you to a million places in one day and instead just choose one spot and take the train there on your own.
This article gives you some recommendations for where to day trip outside of London.
“Which West End shows do you recommend?”
I personally love the Lion King, Five Guys Named Moe, Billy Elliot (no longer on), and my favourite is The Book of Mormon.
“Can you tell me what special events will be happening when I’m visiting?”
This video playlist has a list of videos covering special events for each month of the year.
“What’s the weather going to be like when I’m in London?”
While I appreciate you thinking I’m powerful enough to predict weather, I cannot, especially the varying British weather.
Watch this video about how to figure out the weather for your visit.
“What should I pack for my trip to London?
Here’s my video about what to pack when visiting London.
Here’s what you shouldn’t FORGET to pack.
“What’s the tipping etiquette in London?”
I cover that in this video.
“What’s the best way to get pounds (£) for my trip?”
This video tells you everything you need to know about getting cash and spending your money in London.
Living in London
“Do you have tips for living in/moving to London?”
I’ve got some videos about my tips and experiences moving to and living in London in this video playlist.
“How are you able to live and work in the UK? What are the immigration laws like? How can I get a job there?”
I can’t help with immigration questions. You’ll need to speak to a lawyer for help.
London with Kids
Love and London’s content is created for adults, but I have some resources for families.
If you’ve got young kids, this video with a London mum will give you some good tips.
London is very kid friendly, so don’t feel like you can’t do anything (especially during the day) because you’ve got kids of any age. You know your kids best so you’ll have to take my various recommendations across my channels and paid guides and use your parental instinct as to what they’ll enjoy the most 🙂
