What to see in London

Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square

Despite its size, London is relatively easy to explore, largely thanks to the efficient underground service. Buses are also very useful and allow you to see the famous sights as you travel, in particular, the open-top tourist buses which ply the streets offer a good introduction to the city. Among London’s many landmarks are the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, to name but a few! Running through the heart of London is the River Thames, dividing north and south; over the years, many attractions, restaurants and chic bars have appeared along its banks. 

Being one of the most multicultural cities in the world, there is a huge choice of restaurants offering a diverse variety of cuisine; food markets are dotted all around the capital. Shopping is another major feature of the city, from the famous Harrods store and Harvey Nichols to commercial Oxford Street and the street markets of Camden Town and Portobello Road. If all the crowds become too much, then head to one of London’s beautiful parks, such as St James’ Park next to Buckingham Palace, or Hyde Park, where you can take a boat trip along the Serpentine.
