London visitor information

The tourist offices and websites of London

The Tourist Information Centre in Victoria Station is always incredibly crowded, but the people who work there are as helpful as a harried staff can be.

Much better is the main Britain & London Visitor Centre, at 1 Lower Regent St., three blocks down from Piccadilly Circus (Tube: Piccadilly Circus). It has scads of information on London—and all of Britain—plus a nifty travel bookshop, BritRail ticket window, and both travel and theater ticket agencies.

You also can find information desks at Heathrow Airport, most train stations, St. Paul's Churchyard, Greenwich, and at One Leicester Place on Leicester Square.

To talk to someone with London tourism questions, dial tel. +44-020-7437-4370.

The national BTA site is; the official London tourism office at; and the excellent London city tourism site

The best way to find out what's going on around town, from shows to restaurants to events, is to buy a copy of Time Out magazine, published every Tuesday and available at newsstands. You can also get listings from Time Out's competitor What's On, as well as from The Evening Standard newspaper.
