Like others of the world's great cities, London really sparkles at night and dusk, making for some beautiful photo opportunities.

These days, the streets of downtown London at night are a far cry of the days of dim, flickering street lamps fueled by whale blubber and Jack the Ripper lurking in the foggy shadows.

Like other of the world’s great cities, London really comes alive at night. It’s one of my favorite cities for night-time ambling, not to mention night photography.

Travel Insurance For Your Trip to England

I never travel without travel insurance, and I've run into several situations where I've had to make claims. I consider it essential.

But shopping for travel insurance can be a pain and confusing. Thankfully, there are some travel insurance comparison sites that show you a wide range of plans, make it easy to compare coverage, and can save you money at the same time. And the coverage can be much better tailored to your specific needs than the checkbox offering at travel booking sites or through your credit card.

These are some good places to shop for travel insurance for your next trip to England :

Hopefully, you won't need it, but if something goes wrong, you'll sure be glad you have it!
