Getting About Britain - London Information

Located at 1 Lower Regent Street, close to Piccadilly Circus, the Britain & London Visitor Centre or BLVC, is a seven-day-a-week 'one stop shop' for visitors to the capital. The multilingual staff can provide free advice and brochures to every area of London and Britain. Besides English, these services are offered in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Japanese and Welsh. The BLVC also offers last minute accommodation, transport, tours, bureau de change, theatre and entertainment tickets. There is also free access to tourism websites across Britain at the centre. If you want a last-minute steer before leaving home try the centre’s email help-desk at the BLVC.

London has evolved from a multitude of villages, many of which have grown over the centuries into large urban centres. Taken together, today they make up Greater London, all 600sq mls/960sq km of it. Below we have provided hot links to those centres across London which run their own visitor information service. London consists of the following areas: City of London, Greenwich, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kingston-upon-Thames, Richmond-upon-Thames, Southwark, Twickenham and Waterloo.

Best way to explore london is with an open-top bus trip around the sights of London.

There are more than 800 Tourist Information Centres (TICs) across the length and breadth of Britain. You will find them in town centres, at railway stations, motorway service stops, and air and ferry ports. Apart from dispensing information on the local area - and further afield, TICs can also book accommodation and tickets for train, coach and ferry services. Every TIC in the country is listed in our tourist information pages.
