London has a wide variety of cultures and people from the Middle East and India, so you can surely bet their Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine is phenomenal. So if you're looking for an eclectic mix of modern British comfort food and international dishes to enjoy from breakfast to dinner, then we recommend you check out The Ivy Kensington Brasserie.

British 10 pound currency

The British pound has four different denominations: £5, £10, £20 and £50. Coins (pences) come in: 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Additionally, be sure to keep an eye out for the new £50 that's coming out next year, 2021. The banknote will feature one of the UK and history's most noteworthy people in science: the father of computer science himself, Alan Turing.

Round-trip tickets to London for two typically range from about $468 USD to about $2,455 USD, depending on where you leave from, the airline you fly with, and when you are taking your trip, according to Expedia.

According to Cheap flights, just about any time of the year is a great time to go to London as the city experiences a large amount of tourists year-round. So essentially, order your tickets whenever you would like.

However, if you're looking for the best time of year to go as far as weather is concerned, consider going in March all through to May. Their Spring weather proves to be predictable there, but the weather being from 51-59 degrees is beautifully brisk.
