Resources / How-to be better prepared to make the most of London trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I am heading to London for couple of weeks in first week of November. I would be staying near Green Park - Piccadilly Circus area. This is my first visit. I want to make the most of it. I would be glad if you could recommend any books, specific guides, online resources, podcasts, apps, etc that I could go through or have with me when in London, to understand the city better from the following points of view:

1. Context - Historical, societal, architectural understanding

2. Practical - For ease of navigation

3. Recommendations - restaurants (vegetarian-friendly), must-do's for first visit, shopping

4. Events - be up-to-date with the schedule of latest art gallery exhibits, theatre, talks, etc

I have varied interests and at this stage, I am looking to explore London as much as possible from diverse points of view.

Thanks in advance.
