V London Travel Guide

 

What better gateway to Europe than London, a metropolis where locals speak English, and it’s fairly easy to get around? Like many European cities, modern mixes with the historic on almost every street. That is, provided you can cross the streets to explore them….

The Best of London

Having trouble figuring out what to do in London? Our writers have experienced the very best this city has to offer. So, to ensure you don’t miss any of the good stuff, they’ve compiled a “best of” list to help expedite your search for British excitement.

Inside V London

Our writers have investigated every inch of London in search of ways to travel this city as efficiently as possible. Naturally, many secrets that exist among some of London’s most prestigious attractions have surfaced, and we’re going to share them with you! Our inside tips will give you the special insight you need to get the most out of your trip to London.

Best of V London

Want to see the best London has to offer without leaving the comforts of home? Then check out our virtual tours page and witness an amazing view of some of London’s greatest attractions, such as the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and many more. We’ve used the latest technology to help you become uncommonly familiar with this city before you even book a hotel room!

What was the aim We founded V London?

To provide a guide to London that was free from editorial and commercial pressures. We’re not saying that the existing ones were in bed with the establishment, but there’s definitely an element of collusion going on. We don’t talk to PRs, don’t take freebies and give honest opinions. We feel like our readers appreciate that ethical stance, because it means that they can trust us.

What’s next for V London?

We’re going to keep growing VLondon and keep getting better. We already have some pretty snippy articles but we’d also like to look at things in longer form and really dive into what makes these places so great. We have a very knowledgeable team with diverse experience, so it would be nice to put that expertise to work.

Why should consumers choose to read you over the alternatives?

Because we’re real VLondon. We don’t take backhands, we don’t take free meals or bow to pressure from big groups. If you read about something  being great on our site, it’s because it truly is, not because we’ve been encouraged to say that. Likewise, when we pan something it really does deserve it.

Well, we’re not quite there just yet! Soon, hopefully but the market is always very tricky to read. Sometimes it looks like you’re going to be the king but then support drops off and you don’t even have a minor claim to the throne. Even once you’re on it, there’s every chance that you’ll be deposed. This is starting to sound a bit like a certain HBO drama, but you get the point!

Even so, we’ve enjoyed success so far because we saw a gap in the market and filled it. Finding that niche is a huge part of starting up a new business in a saturated city, and once we had a foothold we were able to challenge in some of the more established areas.
