The cosmopolitan, multi-cultural capital city of London is steeped in history. Diverse culture and food abounds at every turn – from free museums and opulent theatres to colorful, casual food markets, traditional pubs and Michelin star restaurants. Many of the city’s striking landmarks, such as Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, are known around the world, and the architecture dates back hundreds of years.
For shoppers, London is a paradise with most world-renowned brands having set up home in the West End. Why not go east, to areas like Shoreditch and Hoxton for more edgy and cool galleries, fashion and pop-ups, or head west to Chelsea and Kensington for classy brunches, museums and high-end stores. As well as urban escapades, there are gorgeous green spaces to explore all over London, such as Hyde Park, Holland Park, Kew Gardens and Hampton Court Palace, to name a few.
