Quick Guide

  • English
  • Pound Sterling

One of the oldest cities in the world, London is the capital of the United Kingdom and Britain’s transportation, cultural and economic centre. With such a diversity of areas, there really is something for everyone in London.

You will need at least two days just to take in the usual tourist sights such as Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Tate Modern and the Tower Bridge. Also don’t miss The London Tower which houses the crown jewels. This is a city steeped in history, you won’t run out of places to see in a hurry.

If you have visited all of the touristy spots, go and explore some of the hidden gems in the city. There is Borough Market, a must-visit place for all foodies. On Saturday mornings locals prepare numerous food stalls here.

Portobello Road market is opening on Wednesdays and Saturdays and is great if you enjoy browsing stalls which sell old antiques beside the beautiful houses of Notting Hill.

And if all that’s kept you busy during your visit, you can relax in one of London’s many parks.
