We can say without hint of bias, that London, the capital city of England, is perhaps one of the most fascinating and adored cities in the world. With its far-reaching history, London provides iconic landmarks, culture, art, food, nightlife, and fun for all the family. Don't stay for a day, but rather a week or more and even then you'll never fit everything in!  

Places to visit

Where to start? Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, museums, art galleries, theatres - too many to name!
