Am in the process of planning my first trip to London, but can't figure out a good/safe place to stay. As this is the UK Community boards, thought this may be a good place to start. It's a solo trip and will be mostly walking, tour bus or the Tube to get around London. Any recommendations? Am on a budget (as I also have a WDW trip planned in late November), so am looking for something nice, but reasonable. Is the end of August/beginning of September a good time to visit London? How is the weather? Is a tour bus a good way to see most of the major sites in London? Any restaurants you would recommend (am a bit of a picky eater)? What is the best/least expensive way to get to London from Heathrow?
