Youth Hostel – Nightlife in London

Sortir à Londres

Most people who have already gone will tell you that London is a very expensive city.  But, the truth is that you just need a few good tips to enjoy it!

The City of London is best known for its pubs. These “public bars” are concentrated in the West End, which includes the neighbourhoods of Covent Garden, Soho, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Square. Be aware that your evening in one of these areas will cost a few dollars extra than if you choose a place a little more outside the city center.

Thus, in the Islington district, in north-east London, Clapham, south of the city and Camden, a little bit off the center, it is possible to enjoy an evening without being mowed! Also, watch for the “Happy Hour,” which usually takes place at the end of the day, from 17:00 to 19:00 hours. This is an opportunity to take a drink at half price!

The city also hosts many musicals. As on Broadway, New York, it is possible to see famous actors and discover the rising stars at one of the scenes in the city. If you want to experience a musical without spending your entire travel budget in a ticket, you should know that you can buy cheap tickets at a discount place the day of the show.

Food wise, London is a city ever-changing its culinary scene.  Recently, it has experience some dramatic changes with the talented, internationally recognized chefs like Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, and Tom Aikens. Cosmopolitan as is, the city offers visitors a broad choice of sample dishes from over 70 countries!

It is always possible to eat well without breaking into the bank! Just keep your eyes open because most districts offer reduced-cost menus.
