You’ll have such a great time in London that you might want to stay longer than the 7 night maximum stay offered by your hostel. Maybe you’re even considering living in London.
London is a bustling town. Almost a world of its own where a new atmosphere and style greets you at every corner. Take one step the wrong way towards the east and you’ll be confronted with creatures called hipsters: oddly matched clothes, a man-bun wrapped tightly atop their head and a pulled pork sandwich in hand. A step in the opposite direction, you’ll find yourself in a sea of cashmere sweaters with the playful sound of Jaguar keys swivelling upon well kept finger tips.
But which London Borough do you fit into?
South Bank – Artsy
Do you like being entertained and dazzled by pieces of art? Then the Southbank is for you. South of the river is the Tate Modern with free permanent collections, the National Theatre and the Globe Theatre which makes you feel like you are back in the Shakespearian era. A foodie as well? Enjoy some delicious food at Borough Market or sip a nice coffee whilst enjoying free wifi at the Southbank Centre.
Kensington & Chelsea – Posh
If you pronounce your ‘H’s’ correctly, play croquet every week and are a descendant of monarchy, the fair duck-feather duvet plushed beds of Kensington and Chelsea may be for you. If you model your life on the fools that infiltrate our TV screens on Made In Chelsea then you may find yourself slotting in quite nicely.
Hackney – Hipsters
Perhaps the borough of Hackney is for you? Are you into wearing mismatched clothes, pulled pork buns and big bushy beards? Then this is definitely the place for you, the place is abuzz with music, clubs, art galleries and pop-up stalls, with plenty of art folk lingering in these city streets.
Greenwich – Foodies
Are you a culinary connoisseur? If so, then the foodie capital of Greenwich will be the hotspot for you! The place is teaming with restaurants in all sorts of styles. Of course, the Greenwich Market is also a regular event that takes place and opens you up to a hubbub of foodie treats!
We are just fine with wombat’s located just in the middle of the Artsy-Foodie-Hipster Triangle. If you want to stay longer and experience the borough made for you, why not find your perfect flatshare on spareroom.com!
