* The West End. Home of a lot of London's famous shopping streets and its theatres. The West End is of course the UK's equivalent of Broadway and a number of musicals do both of them.

* North London: Islington, Shoreditch, Hoxton and so on. Trendy, "artistic", lefty sorts of areas often shown as being full of pretentious tossers. Islington is relatively wealthy and "nicer" than the others -- here you'll find the "chattering classes". Hotblack Desiato from ''Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse'' is famously named after a firm of Islington estate agents. Also has its less glamorous areas, as portrayed in the novel WhiteTeeth.

London also has the Eurostar train service to mainland Europe. This used to run out of Waterloo (which features in the film of ''[[Film/TheBourneSeries The Bourne Ultimatum]]''), but has now moved to St. Pancras, which frankly needed some love- the only thing that went from there was the Midland Mainline service.
