    London buzzes day and night

    At once swish and gritty, old and new, London is a searing mass of contradictions. They all add up to create a metropolis that moves and breathes like a living thing, pulsing from Shoreditch's hipster haunts all the way to Kensington's boutiques. Landmarks? How about Big Ben, the London Eye, The Shard. Cultural attractions? The British Museum, the V&A, the Natural History Museum – some of the best in the world. Then comes a culinary scene so varied, taste buds won't know what hit them – a morning shakshuka in Dalston's Turkish kitchens followed by an evening of Indian paneer in King's Cross, anyone? London holiday rentals await.

    The patchwork of London

    London's probably best seen as a patchwork of different neighbourhoods. Wander from west to east and you'll encounter a whole host of mini cities-within-a-city. Take Stoke Newington, a happening hub where traditional English pubs mingle with boho art galleries. Take Kensington, the haunt of the rich and famous, where wine bars meet high-end stores and boutiques for leisurely shopping. Take Soho and its wild nightlife, or the West End, where grand theatres sparkle along the streets. And then there's the Southbank and its skateparks, and Brick Lane's vintage emporiums.

    London is museum central

    If your idea of a great city break is encountering 2,000-year-old Greek marbles and seeing sand-dried mummies and the Rosetta Stone all before brunch, then London holiday rentals are probably going to be right up your street. The British Museum should be top of the bill. It's laden with treasures – priceless, the lot – from right across the globe. Roman busts? Check. Etruscan tomb fragments? You bet. Mughal paintings? Of course. Elsewhere in the big city, you can see some of the most famous paintings in the world at the Tate Modern, bask in high fashion at the V&A or excite the kids at the Science Museum.

    London's always a corker

    There's really never a bad time to hit London town, as it always bustles with life and energy. Summer, between June and August, brings some of the best weather of the whole UK to the metropolis, opening up the likes of Hyde Park to picnickers and London Fields to BBQ parties. The autumn can be a pound-saving season, running from September to October. Winter has festive markets on the South Bank and wonderlands in the parks – come before Christmas to make the most of them. Spring – in April and May – is perfect for visiting outdoor attractions like Kew Gardens.

    London and the snaking Thames

    If there's one geographical feature that really defines London, it's the long and winding River Thames. That great waterway divides the metropolis in half, linking it to royal towns in the Home Counties and to the coast to the east. Along its length you can seek out London holiday rentals close to urban parks that offer a taste of the English outdoors. There's Hyde Park, with its monuments and lakes. There's the grassy fields of Hampstead Heath, enjoying views of London's skyscrapers. Further afield are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, like the Surrey Hills and the Chilterns, great for an escape from city life.
