London

Travel Guide
London which includes night scenes, a city and a skyscraper

London is dizzyingly vast, thrillingly cosmopolitan and packed with culture at every turn; there is no other city quite like it.

Home to more than 8 million people, the city of London is one of the world’s most iconic metropolises. Boasting the oldest Underground service in the world, London’s vast subterranean networks are the arteries of this extraordinary city, constantly on the move.

An eclectic mix of old and new, the London city skyline carries an incomparable outline. Whilst the city’s old treasures; Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and Tower Bridge still sit majestically along the banks of the River Thames, London has a variety of slim and chic new structures that inject a sense of immortality into this stunning skyline. Truly the pinnacle of innovative architectural engineering, the recently developed Shard building and the affectionately named “Gherkin” skyscraper are not to be missed. View all of this from the comfort of the city’s largest observation wheel, the London Eye.

Art and history buffs will not be disappointed with what London has on offer. Visitors are treated to the world famous British Museum displaying hundreds of artefacts from around the world. The Tate Modern is an absolute must-see for art lovers.

With over 270 different nationalities living in the city, this multi-cultural hub is a paradise for food lovers. Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in London, from the Michelin-star restaurants in Kensington, Chelsea and Knightsbridge to the lively bistros in Notting Hill and Soho, there is a taste to satisfy every palate. Grab a plate of paella in Covent Garden or tuck into an authentic Indian curry on Brick Lane.

With thousands of shops and outlets, from Harrods in Knightsbridge to Selfridges on Oxford Street, shopping enthusiasts will be in their element in this cosmopolitan retail paradise.

Watch the world roll by at Trafalgar Square or witness the chaos at Piccadilly Circus from the comfort of a nearby café. As one of London’s largest green spaces, Hyde Park is the perfect place to relax, take a picnic or to rest weary feet after a hard day’s sightseeing.

Finally, for a true taste of tradition, take a trip down to Buckingham Palace at 11:15 a.m. sharp, and witness the changing of the guard.
