The top mentioned neighborhoods and areas that people talk about in and around London are: Kensington, Southwark, Gatwick, Soho, Victoria, South Kensington, Westminster, Bayswater, and South Bank.
Here's what Trippy members had to say:
"Yes, I think Shoreditch and Camden Town would be great choices -- there are a lot of young people and cool bars in the area -- but I'd also keep a look out for places in Southwark." See More
"There are so many amazing neighborhoods and restaurants all over the city, but if you want to be right in the heart of things, I would recommend anywhere in Soho or Covent Garden." See More
"This will keep travel times and travel prices down to a minimum as attractions are spread all over the area, although it is true that the centre (Westminster, Soho, Covent Garden etc) have more than their fair share." See More
"It gives easy access via the #15 bus to Saint Paul's Cathedral and Trafalgar Square, and Tower Hill Underground Station will connect you via the Circle/District Lines to Westminster and Parliament Square." See More
"I would look around Bayswater, Battersea or Kensington if I were you." See More
"I assume you want to do all of the classic london sights (Trafalgar Square, The British Museum, South Bank of the Thames, Westminster Abbey etc." See More
