It’s been described as the biggest theme park in the world, but it’s always been the capital city of the UK and there is plenty to do here either on a short visit of a couple of days, or a visit for a week or more!
Visit the London Eye or The View from the Shard, both offering spectacular views over some of the sites you can take in later in more detail.
The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace is a traditional ‘must see’ for the first time visitor to London… and a stop at the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels and the White Tower for the Royal Armouries is another must!
Borough Market is one the capital’s best places for lunch where you can sample some of the culinary delights from British food producers as you peruse the colourful displays of fresh produce from nearby London.
Experience the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus at the centre of London’s West End, the theatre district, and the heart of London’s social scene. Shop for London souvenirs or sportswear while listening to the famous street performers who make this traditional meeting point a place where you’ll really feel like London never sleeps!
Take some time to explore some sites in more detail by perhaps taking a tour of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, or St Paul’s Cathedral, or may be even following the Harry Potter trail to Platform 9 & ¾ at King’s Cross station!
