In my point of view, the most appropriate area to stay in London is Pimlico, this is because there the accommodation prices are bit lower as compared to other parts and it is also nearer to the most visited landmarks of the city. Yes it has been the most prominent month, as weather is truly amazing to enjoy the beauty of whole London city. It is a big city and to reach all the landmarks without any guidance become quite difficult for anyone. So itís necessary to take a guided tour organized by good travel agency like Eddieís Kosher Travel to explore the beauty of the entire unheard destination without any difficulty.
Hi there, This is my favorite place for spending the leisure time. I am pretty familiar with the areas such as Mayfair, South-Kensington and Belgravia where I spend my most of the time. Most overseas travelers favor the summer months because of school vacations and warmer weather. The spring sees fewer visitors overall, but Japanese tourists come during their traditional April and May vacations. Also during this time period finding good places to rent in London is also easy that make your journey more smooth too.
When commuting to work people choose mode of transportation bases on a combination of time and cost, Public transportation or car pooling is cheaper than driving alone but takes more time, so people can substitute one for the other. Vacation travel requires time so the more time you have for vacations the more money you will spend on transportation for travel, so time and cost will act as compliments. Thanks.

May should be warm and sunny though April is very wet at the moment! West london is handy for heathrow but if you want cool and trendy the area around hoxton sq/shoreditch is very cool. Quick to get int the city by tube
In my opinion, there is no good month to go weather wise to the UK! Only kidding, lets hope by spring or summer things should be looking up. I have always enjoyed staying in Earl's Court in London although it is no longer the Gay area it once was. The reason I like it is that there are many reasonable hotels and places to eat (although even Earl's Court has become more expensive as of late- you have to look around if you are on a budget). It is also between Heathrow Airport and the center- the Tube stops there. So getting around is easy. I've stayed in the East End and found it rather bleak. Also in the center and found it too frantic (as well as not much value for money). Of course, where you stay depends on what your interests are.
