Guardsmen Parade Outside Buckingham Palace

Leave your London hotel to a royal reception. Castles, shops fit for a queen and culture accessible to prince and pauper make this city a king among capitals.

Historic London

In olden times, guards kept royals prisoner in the Tower of London. These days they keep watch over the priceless Crown Jewels. Politicians at the Houses of Parliament come and go but a long-reigning leader presides over nearby Buckingham Palace.

Art and museums in London

The large-scale contemporary artworks in the Tate Modern art gallery make a big impression. The National Gallery takes a more classic approach – Van Gogh’s Sunflowers is one of the instantly recognisable masterpieces on display. Kids get their hands on exhibits at the Science Museum, but it’s best to stand back from the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum.

Quirky things to do in London

Leave your London hotel for a turn on the London Eye and sweeping views of the city. Visitors who want to get under London’s skin descend into the London Dungeon to explore its murderous past. Jack the Ripper is said to lurk here so only those with guts to spare should visit – he’s running short.

Events in London

The Notting Hill Carnival throngs through west London every August. Pride London’s huge parade attracts gay visitors from around the world but anyone can join the party. Winter’s a relatively chilled affair, but the Christmas markets throughout the city keep things festive.
