London rock and pop locations

 Abbey-Road-Album-Cover

Most of the great pop and rock groups of the last half century have emerged in London. The pop -rock revolution of the 60’s gave Lonson the reputation of an alive and vibrant city with the famous ‘Swinging London’. It was a youth-oriented phenomenon that emphasized the new and modern coinciding with a period of optimism and hedonism that led to a cultural revolution.

London is the city where the first and original Hard Rock Cafe was created and where you can find the famous Abbey Road Studios where The Beatles recorded several of their greatest hits. In this post we will look at London locations associated with great musicians and British groups such as Elton John, David Bowie, Queen, Eric Clapton, Sex Pistols o The Rolling Stones. We’ll show you the places where they began their careers, where they lived or even the actual address of some of them.

Bye Bye 2013. Was nice to meet you!!!

pl2

We are about to say goodbye to 2013.  Some of you will do so with sadness, thinking of all that this year has brought, some others with joy, because the best is yet to come … From London Low Cost we wish you a 2014 full of joy and good news;-)

But before saying goodbye to this year  we want to make a summary of all the experiences and adventures we have lived in London through our photo book.

Summer

Let’s start with our favorite season of year: summer. The warm weather (really short for two mediterranian girls) allowed us to enjoy the city at 100%. During this year, we have made several picnics in different parks, one of the most fun and economical plans for the summer season. Hyde Park has not only witnessed our “binge” but so has our bike rides. We also enjoyed the London pools, outdoor theaters and even a session of opera in Trafalgar Square, and much more,…

Keep calm & Merry Christmas!!!

Oxford Street lights

 Like every year Christmas is making itself a space among us slowly. Most of you maybe have noticed some signs already like the appearance of clothing, decoration and Christmas food in stores, Christmas lights in a few corners,… But since yesterday we can say that Christmas is installed to stay in London, at least for a month and a half.

Traditionally, the holiday season starts with the lighting of Oxford Street. And yesterday the Londoner singer Jessie J was in charge of flicking the switch to kick off the most beautiful season in the city for us (leaving the cold side).

But not only Oxford Street is a symbol of Christmas in London, other streets an areas of the city also offer decorations worthy of being part of our Christmas cards. A few meters from Oxford Street you will find Carnaby Street, that yesterday also inaugurated its holiday season filled with hundreds robins that fly over the heads of passersby.

A few weeks ago we published a post in which we talked about one of the best theme parks in England, called Thorpe Park, and located a few miles from London . Today we recommend you to visit another one as captivating as Thor Park. It is called Legoland. As you can guess from the name, Legoland is a theme park that belongs to the famous LEGO toy company and represents reproductions of world famous buildings , such as the Statue of Liberty or the Pantheon in Athens as well as Lego and Duplo animals . Located in Windsor, Legoland opened in 1996 on the former Windsor Safari Park site, an animal theme park that the LEGO Group bought.

But Legoland is not only a theme park for children. The Resort has roller coasters and all kinds of attractions. Moreover, they organize many events throughout the year for children and adults, such as acrobatics or thematic fireworks. This year Windsor fireworks will take place on two consecutive weekends . On 26th and 27th October and the 1st and 2nd November from 18:30 Fireworks will illuminate the sky above Windsor for only 34 pounds per head. If you missed the first weekend you still have a second chance. But hurry up , you must book in advance and there is not much time left!!
