London is a great city, especially if you’re planning a trip for summer, but things could be just too expensive. Well, renting an Airbnb property could be a smart choice for you – personally I prefer this to a hotel.
The capital city boasts of a lot of enticing views and engaging activities you could ever need, from the local street foods, to catching some grooves at the nightlife and the hotels.
Planning a trip to London soon? Here are the top 4 areas to stay via Airbnb:
The city of Westminster in London, the capital’s landmarks, remains one of the favorite tourist attraction to millions of people. From spending time taking photos in front of the Buckingham Palace Guards, to appreciating nature at the St James’ Park – Westminster surly has a lot of things to offer guests.
The St James’ Park is one of London’s finest green spaces to behold; has a small lake, with two islands. Visitors can watch the resident pelicans feeding on fresh fish from the lake every afternoon from 2.30pm to 3pm. In addition to the entertaining wildfowl, visitors in the summer can also participate in the event of ‘Trooping the Color’. A military parade that is held on Horse Guards ceremonial parade ground to celebrate the Queen of Buckingham Palace’s birthday.

The borough of Camden is a large urban area, running from the Northern edge of Euston Road all the way up to Hampstead Heath. It welcomes visitors that love local vibes – from music & arts, to the Camden Market, to the Regent’s Canal neighborhood. Camden is recognized as the capital of music, arts and the best street food in London; from the halloumi fries to the Korean burritos.
You could spend time exploring the Camden Market, London’s most popular retail market; comprising four main markets around Camden Lock and along Camden High Street. The retail market has been a place of attraction for decades. There are a lot of other things Camden offers such as enjoying the live music of Koko or catching some groove at the Dublin Castle. Make sure you enjoy the crispy sea food and salted chips from the Hook restaurant when you visit the city of Camden as an Airbnb guest.

One of safest place to live in London, Wandsworth offers craft breweries, riverside pubs and Michelin-starred restaurants to its guests. If you’d love to find peace while you enjoy some time at the pubs, the riverside location is just perfect.
In addition to the riverside pubs, you could meander around the De Morgan Centre (aka Wandsworth Museum) and appreciate history better. From the pictures of Trafalgar Square, dated back to 1857, to the pictures of Aqueduct & the old Putney Bridge, 1881. Also, transportation within and out of the riverside is very convenient and easy.
Kensington, one of London’s most desirable areas to Airbnb, is home to some of London’s most distinguished free museums, two Royal Parks and a range of amazing local shops.
Millions of guest flock to South Kensington – it offers a range of amazing free museums such as the Victoria and Albert Museum. In addition to the art and design, Kensington also offers a cluster of free attractions such as the Kensington Palace, the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
After a quality time at the beautiful Kensington Gardens, Airbnb guests can have share some refreshing moment at the local restaurants, generously scattered around. With popular Royal Parks, distinguished museums and the local shops, Kensington is just amazing to tourists who want something simple and unique.
