London Neighborhood Guide

By Viator, October 2017

5 27 Reviews | Add your review

From punk-rock Camden to chic Notting Hill and vibrant Brick Lane, London’s diverse neighborhoods check all the boxes. Explore beyond Buckingham Palace and the bright lights of Soho by diving into our picks of London’s most interesting districts.

Kensington and Chelsea
West of Hyde Park and Mayfair, the affluent borough of Kensington and Chelsea is lined with grand Victorian townhouses, green parks, and elegant shopping boutiques. Stroll the fashion hub of King’s Road; head north to Notting Hill and Portobello Market; then visit some of London’s top museums, such as the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Saatchi Gallery.

East End
Once the stomping ground of Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd, and some of London’s most notorious criminal gangs, London’s East End has had an image overhaul in recent years. Today, visitors can explore the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, tuck into curry on vibrant Brick Lane, browse the legendary Old Spitalfields Market, and explore the trendy bars, pubs, and nightclubs of Shoreditch, Whitechapel, and Hackney.

Greenwich 
The picturesque riverside borough of Greenwich is one of the best reasons to venture south of the river, and it’s a popular stop on Thames River cruises. Highlights include the historic Cutty Sark tea clipper ship, the Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, and Greenwich Park.

Brixton 
Known for its rich Caribbean culture, live music scene, and electric nightlife, Brixton is a world away from the glitz and glamour of West London. Brixton Market is a top spot for food tours, while Brixton Village is a haven for alternative fashion. Art lovers can see some of the city’s coolest street art galleries, including a colorful mural of local hero and global legend David Bowie.

London Bridge
Forever famous for its eponymous bridge, London Bridge is also home to some of London’s top attractions. Foodies flock to Borough Market, while architecture buffs gawk at the futuristic City Hall and the Shard, which is also home to London’s highest observation deck.

Camden Town
Renowned for its rock music scene and alternative fashions, Camden Town allows visitors to follow in the footsteps of the Sex Pistols, the Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, and Jimi Hendrix. Highlights include the legendary Camden Market, cruises along Regent’s Canal, and the Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill parks.
