With landmarks as iconic as Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Big Ben, it’s no wonder London is one of the most visited cities in the world. Starting life as a Roman settlement over 2,000 years ago, it has emerged as a buzzing capital bursting with history, culture and entertainment. Said to be home to at least one person from every country across the globe, the city owes its vibrancy to the melting-pot of cultures living side-by-side; it’s why you can start your day on a full English breakfast, snack on Mexican street food for lunch and dine on an authentic curry in Brick Lane for dinner.
And as Samuel Johnson once famously said, ‘when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’, visitors to this cosmopolitan city will never want for things to do, to see or to explore. Pound the length of Oxford Street, picnic in the sprawling Regent’s Park or take things slowly with a boat ride down the Thames. Catch a live street performance in Covent Garden, view the final resting place of Charles Darwin in Westminster Abbey or take a photo with the Queen at Madame Tussauds. London is waiting!
