Thanks to its variety of sights, London makes the perfect holiday location for everyone, from fun-seeking families to romantic couples.
Historic attractions in London
London is bursting at the seams with attractions that offer insight into Britain’s long and fascinating history. Visit the Tower of London, a 1000-year old attraction that’s home to the Crown Jewels, and St Paul’s Cathedral, a centre of London-life for centuries. At Tower Bridge, admire the iconic Victorian construction that opens its gates as tall ships sail past along the majestic River Thames.
Travel further west to see Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the Queen of England, and Trafalgar Square, with its imposing lions and Nelson’s Column. Nearby are the Houses of the Parliament in Westminster and the majestic Big Ben offer two attractions that are symbol of London the world over.
London’s cultural hotspots
Cultural attractions including The British Museum, Tate Modern, the National Gallery and the Science Museum are all free to enter and are fitting testaments to Britain’s historic and artistic legacy.
For pop culture, join the queue at Madame Tussauds, a museum that offers the chance to rub shoulders with celebrities like Lady Gaga and Prince William – all in wax form. Although London’s magnificent Olympic Park is closed to the public until July 2013, there are still many places from which you can have a great view of this fantastic attraction.
