London

You need to post this on the Europe board - where you're going, rather than where you're from. Good luck!

E and E Apartments has short term rentals in Pimlico. They're very good.

Amy, yes you need to post on Europe board but this was also worthwhile.
We have traveled from Thailand twice to Europe, though not Britain as the costs were so high for accommodation etc. We are not 'rich' but we are reasonably well off and certainly not poor, but accommodation costs are in a different league, just be sure you appreciate costs involved.
Make sure you are aware of the costs of accommodation and transport. We have done Turkey, Greece, Croatia, Switzerland and Spain, Croatia was cheapest followed by Spain then Greece. However these were still expensive for us.
I would look at Malaysia Airlines packags with accommodation, tranposrt cards and tours included. Normaly I would never think of packages but it could be a lot cheaper.
We though about Italy last year but had to forget it totaly, I asked on the Europe board but I was obviously not realising the costs, not just accommodation but meals etc. Some suggested place like very low budget hostels and other very cheap style accommodation but that's not our stytle of travel, so we didn't bother.
When we have done Australia we find the prices are just fine, accommodation, food, taxis, tours etc, in many cases on-par with SEA.
Just be sure to find out what sort of costs to expect in Europe.
