As an expat in London, one of the top questions I get from friends and family (and their friends and family many times removed) is what to see and do when coming to London. And, let’s be fair – I don’t blame them! Recommendations from people you trust are a huge advantage when traveling.

Whether you’re a local or a tourist, I’ve created my ultimate London guide to share my favorite London travel guides, hotels, restaurants and other must-see attractions. I have lived in London since January 2015 and this guide will be updated periodically as I explore and review new places in London. The ‘London Guide’ lives on the top header bar of my blog, but can also be found here: http://www.thesavvybostonian.com/london-guide/.
