Why go to Los Angeles

A bustling city of big stars, big attractions and big ideas, Los Angeles is a city like no other. From beautiful beaches and culinary riches to must-visit museums and one-of-a-kind attractions, the entertainment capital of the world has everything you need for an epic holiday.

Between Universal Studios, the celebrity mansions in Beverly Hills, and the iconic Hollywood sign, a holiday in La La Land will leave you starry-eyed. But whether you’re exploring its different neighbourhoods or getting your culture fix in world-class galleries, you’ll soon realise that the almost 4 million people in this sprawling city form a rich tapestry beyond the glitz and glam.

Get a flavour of it all in buzzing downtown LA, shopper’s haven Rodeo Drive, nightlife hub West Hollywood or beachside Santa Monica. For culture, galleries such as The Getty Center, The Broad, and LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) should be at the top of your to-do list.

Tips and advice

Is it safe to go to Los Angeles?

Most visitors to Los Angeles will enjoy a safe trip and once-seedy areas like downtown LA have experienced a makeover. However, Los Angeles suffers from social inequality that can surface in begging and street crime. For the most up-to-date travel advice for the USA, check the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.

Do I need to have a visa to go to Los Angeles?

British passport holders need a visa waiver (ESTA) to holiday in the USA.

How many days do I need in Los Angeles?

Three days is enough to visit Los Angeles’ main attractions such as Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, The Broad, the Hollywood sign, Griffith Park and Santa Monica. A week is ideal for day trips to Malibu and Disneyland.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

LA police eagerly enforce hands-free driving rules. For your safety (and bank balance), drive with a mounted GPS.

Getting around Los Angeles

There is abundant car rental for getting around Los Angeles, but parking is expensive and traffic is fiendish. (Rush hour? Try two or three hours, twice a day!)

The metro connects areas like downtown LA, Santa Monica and Hollywood; get a reusable TAP card. Buses cover more destinations (including the airport Flyaway Bus), while the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train connects LA with Anaheim for Disneyland. Taxis and ride-share services like Uber fill the gaps. Bike rental is great for Santa Monica.
