What to Expect in London
Travellers visiting London for the first time often get confused when it comes to finding ways around town and navigating the city’s extensive tube (subway) network, which some say is more complicated than Toronto’s subway system. Downloading a mobile app that provides metro transit information is a good idea for people learning the system. In London, you’ll experience weather that’s much less extreme than weather in Toronto, especially during winter. Wintertime in London typically offers days that stay above 0°, which means it’s relatively easy to spend time outside shopping or sightseeing. On a final note, keep in mind that London is 5 hours ahead of Toronto, so calling friends and family back in Canada requires paying attention to the time zone difference and you may experience a bit of jet lag while travelling.
