London Travel Guide

London, it's the land of royalty, historic landmarks and pubs as far as the eye can see. It's little wonder why a trip to the mother-land has become a rite of passage for so many young Australians. Some choose to stay for a few weeks, exploring the city's icons and tasting the London way of life, while others arrive only to leave years later, falling for its energy, excitement and endless possibilities. Whatever your journey holds, we can make your once in a life time London holiday happen.

When to go and weather:There's never really a bad time to visit London. Apart from a few attractions shortening their hours during winter, the city is alive and pumping all year round. London does experience summer and winter months, but this is by no means a guarantee for warm or dry weather. No matter what time of year you visit London, be prepared to get cold and wet. The thought of dreary weather may sound a little solemn, but it's all part of the fun of being in London. Buy a woolly coat from high street, cosy up in a pub and keep warm in the company of new and old friends. When the sun does make an appearance, which is usually during the summer months of July and August, locals come out to play, lazing in parks and making the most of warm weather.

Transport: For the quickest and easiest way to get around London, you can't go past the city's famous Tube underground railway system. It will have you zipping from Westminster to Wembley in no time. If you'd prefer a more leisurely and scenic journey, a simple stroll will ensure you don't miss a beat, or you can even ride a bike thanks to the city's convenient cycle hire scheme. For a truly unique London trip, be sure to take a ride on one of London’s iconic double-decker buses.

On a London working holiday you can live like a local while still having the freedom to travel and enjoy yourself. And overseas working holidays don't get much easier than London and the greater UK – same language, same culture and same love of a good time.

Though London is the first place people think of when it comes to UK working holidays, the UK is a big place with plenty of opportunities.
