London – Arrive in the Romance of London’s Charming Neighborhoods
London is a city known for its cosmopolitan culture, rich history, and fast pace. However, the capital of England also has a familiar charm wrapped up in the preserved streets, re-emergence of quality restaurants, and simple hideaways perfect for romancing couples. You will arrive at London Heathrow Airport, where your private transfer greets you after customs. You have a chance to settle into the comforts of your luxury accommodations in the heart of the city before venturing onto the cobbled lanes for an immersive introductory tour of London’s most charming neighborhoods. Primrose Hill is one of London’s more affluent neighborhoods, which overtook a formerly unfettered woodland in the 19th century.
English monarchs used the grounds for hunting parties until the wealthy residents of the city who preferred more space and marvelous views of the city’s skyline made the neighborhood a fantastic place to settle down. Famous residents of the neighborhood include Sylvia Plath, Kate Moss, Dylan Thomas, and Jude Law. You can take a quiet stroll between Camden Town and Primrose Hill, which leads you over the quaint rippling waters of the Grand Union Canal erected in the late 18th century. Boats wade in the water or cruise down the serene waterway as they pass beneath the branches of dangling trees and alongside lavish structures. Upon reaching Primrose Hill, you have a stunning panorama of London’s Financial District, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the soaring Shard building standing 1,017 feet tall.
