    In the words of a former guest; This was our first visit to London, and we were looking for a comfortable and economical place to stay with our two adult children. Communication with the owner was excellent, and she did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. The home is neat, clean, comfortable for four adults in need of three bedrooms, and in a quiet Harrow neighborhood northwest of central London. The owner's sister-in-law, met us at the home and drove us around the neighborhood to show us where to find things. We arrived following a red-eye flight, and found that she had already procured items for our breakfast...A very nice touch. The owner stayed in contact with us during our stay to make sure everything met our needs. The home is equipped with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, wireless Internet access (critical for our children), television, and very comfortable beds. There was no night noise issue, and we never felt unsafe in the neighborhood. There is, however, a fast train to north central London which allowed us to quickly access all the sights (15 minute trip). The train station is about a mile away and can readily be accessed by walking or by buses from stops about 1/4 mile away. If you are seeking a cost-effective abode for a London visit and don't mind having to do a little traveling to get to the sites, this home provides an excellent option. Excellent option.

Lonely Planet Article: Day Trips from London

Need a break from the hustle and bustle of London after a week of sightseeing? England's compactness means there are don't-miss day trips on the doorstep of the capital. From the dreaming spires of Oxford to sophisticated, sexy Brighton, and upper crust Windsor and Eton to classy Bath, you can easily hop on a train or catch a bus to a range of real gems.

The Victorian poet Matthew Arnold called Oxford 'that sweet city with her dreaming spires'. For visitors, the superb architecture and the unique atmosphere of the more than three dozen colleges – synonymous with academic excellence – and their courtyards and gardens remain major attractions.

The town's character essentially dates from the 1780s when the dissolute, music loving Prince Regent (the future King George IV) built his outrageous summer palace, the Royal Pavilion, here as a venue for lavish parties by the sea. And that charmingly seedy 'great-place-for-a-dirty-weekend' vibe lasted throughout the gang-ridden 1930s of Graham Greene's novel Brighton Rock and the mods versus-rockers rivalry of the 1950s and '60s.

Windsor & Eton
With its romantic architecture and superb state rooms, Windsor Castle is one of Britain's premier tourist attractions and, since it is so close to central London and easily accessible by rail and road, it crawls with tourists in all seasons.

This delightful city of honey-coloured stone has always been renowned for its architecture, especially its fine Georgian terraces. Nowadays, though, it is celebrated in equal measure for its association with the novelist Jane Austen – not so much for her actual works but for the films based on them.

Why London?

Top Attractions
You can't fail to be excited by London's amazing attractions. See London from above on the London Eye; meet a celebrity at Madame Tussauds; examine some of the world's most precious treasures at the British Museum; or, come face-to-face with the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum.

Premiere Shopping Destination
You're spoilt for choice when shopping in London; from the flagship stores on Oxford Street, to gifts and bric-a-brac at London's markets. Shop in Europe's largest urban shopping centre at Westfield Stratford, or visit an iconic department store such as Harrods or Selfridges.

Beautiful Green Spaces
You don't need to travel far to find green space in London. The capital is home to eight beautiful Royal Parks, including Hyde Park, St James's Park and Richmond Park. There's also Hampstead Heath in North London, with amazing views over the city. Alternatively, visit one of London's peaceful gardens such as Kew or Chelsea Physic Garden.

River and Waterways
The Thames flows through Central London and provides a stunning backdrop to many of the city's top tourist attractions. River bus services and river tours are great ways to beat the traffic and enjoy wonderful views. Don't forget London's canals either, including Regent's Canal and Little Venice.
