Short-term rentals in London
According to the consulting company Mercer, London tops not only the lists of popularity among tourists, but also the cost-of-living lists. In 2007 London occupied the 2nd position on said Mercer list, in 2008 finished on the 3rd, and in 2009 it progressed to the 16th position. In 2012, London is the 25th most expensive city for expatriates in the world. Living in London bears the highest cost, and apartment rentals in London present a viable alternative to hotels. Apartments in London will save you money and help you to enjoy London more.
You won't necessarily have to sacrifice the location and proximity to the attractions of London to get a decent flat or a studio apartment. Even in the most prestigious boroughs, apartment rentals in London cost less than hotelswhile providing you with more perks and comforts. Luxury London apartments are easy to find and book as well.
Choosing a short-term apartment in London means you will have a complete home all to yourself that will include a separate bedroom, a living room, a bathroom, and most importantly a fully functional kitchen.
For guests travelling with friends or family, renting a two- or three-bedroom apartment in London is much more convenient and economical than booking a hotel. Staying in an apartment for your vacation will provide you with an opportunity to spend quality time together and stay in whenever you like, instead of just using your room to sleep.

Tower of London

This is the most recognizable historical sight of London. The Tower of London had been built by William the Conqueror to protect his subjects and not even once in history has it been conquered by enemies of England. The White Tower with the Norman St. John chapel is the oldest part of the fortress; its walls are 4.6 meters thick. Up until the 17th century the tower had served as a palace, then as Mint, and then a menagerie (until 1834; the only pets left there now are crows).

The Tower of London is mostly famous as a prison. Even the entry gate at the side of the Thames is called "Traitors' Gate", and the tower on the defensive side, where the Princes disappeared, is referred to as "The Bloody Tower". The green yard within the fortress served as execution spot for the most famous prisoners, including those of the royal blood, whose headless bodies rest in the Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincula, a very beautiful structure in such a gruesome place.

Today the Tower of London houses the Royal Armouries (in the White Tower) and the Crown Jewels: the coronation crown, made in 1661 for Charles II, and the Imperial State Crown with the Black Prince's Ruby are guarded by the garrison of Beefeaters (the Yeomen Warders), dressed in traditional costume of the Tudor times.
