What happens when you combine the iconic imagery of Big Ben, black cabs, and double decker buses, with the history and elegance of the monarchy, and an unparalleled diversity of ground breaking arts and events? Why, London, of course! Every year, the capital of England and the United Kingdom draws some 15 million visitors to its many attractions, including some of the world’s top museums and shopping destinations.
With so many unique districts and neighbourhoods, from the vibrant Notting Hill to the historic heart of government in Westminster, London’s diversity and multiculturalism has built this city into an incredible buzzing metropolis, ready to suit any mood and meet any desire. Fancy a relaxing walk in a park? Take your pick from countless gorgeous green spaces including Hyde Park, Kew Gardens, and Hampstead Heath. Care to explore the architectural gems? Sir Christopher Wren’s St. Paul’s Cathedral is a classic, and the recently completed Shard is the tallest building in the EU.
Museum buffs will go nuts for the mummies of the British Museum, the dinos of the Natural History Museum, and the masterpieces at the National Gallery (all free, by the way). As for the arts, if some of the world’s most exciting theatre and dance troupes, bands, orchestras, and visual artists aren’t enough for you, perhaps you’re best surrounding yourself with the luxurious pleasures of Harrods or Selfridges. And that’s just the beginning!
