Just outside the buzz and bustle of Central London, the Greater London area has some great boroughs in which to stay. The leafy residential streets of suburbs such as Notting Hill and Dulwich are a short journey from London's main attractions, but they offer a bit of peace and quiet after a day's sightseeing.
