It's difficult to know where to start when describing London as there's so much to see and do to suit all tastes... your main problem will be deciding what to do first!

There are many websites for tourist Information, and hopefully the above gives you a little flavour of some of the things to do although it's difficult to do justice to London in a paragraph or two. It is quite simply one of the world's great cities, where you could spend weeks and still not feel you have seen everything worth seeing. But one thing's for sure...you'll never be bored!

History: The settlement appears in the Domesday Book as Belgeham. Bal refers to 'rounded enclosure' and ham to a homestead, village or river enclosure. It was held by Geoffrey Orlateile. Its Domesday Assets were: 1½ ploughs, 8 acres (32,000 m2) of meadow. It rendered (in total): £2. The Balham area has been settled since Saxon times. Balham Hill and Balham High Road follow the line of the Roman road Stane Street to Chichester – (now the A24 road). Balham is recorded in several maps in the 1600s as Ballam or Balham Hill or Balham Manor.
Landmarks: The Bedford is a pub venue for live music and comedy on Bedford Hill; performers have included Eddie Izzard, Jo Brand and Al Murray. The pub has won various awards including The Publican Music Pub of the Year 2004, The Morning Advertiser Pub of the Year 2004 and The Evening Standard Pub of the Year 2002. In 1876, the building (then named "The Bedford Hotel") housed the Coroners inquest into the notorious unsolved murder of Charles Bravo, a resident and lawyer who was poisoned, possibly by his wife.
Bertie and Boo Coffee Shop won the 'Best Neighbourhood Coffee Shop' 2009 for the Love London Awards.
