Welcome to London
You can visit London twenty times and still feel like you’ve only scratched the surface of this world class city. Given that it dates back to Roman times, there are layers of history and secret corners to discover everywhere!
If it’s your first visit, definitely take in the major sights and museums. You won’t feel like you’re really in London until you’re standing on Tower Bridge or outside the gates of Buckingham Palace or in the Egytptian rooms of the British Museum. Or get a real sense of the city from the Southbank of the Thames with a champagne flight aboard the fantastic London Eye which never stops!
And if it’s your umpteenth visit to London, there are countless neighborhoods to enjoy! Hunt for antiques at Greenwich Market, dive into cocktails in Shoreditch, admire street art in East Dulwich, picnic on Hampstead Heath, or catch a concert at Wembley Stadium. If you’ve had your fill of buses and the Tube, let one of those famous black cabbies show you around or opt for a zippy tour in a chauffeured Mini Cooper.
London is great any time of year. From summertime, when Londoners eat ice cream and lounge in lawn chairs in one of their many parks, once the hunting grounds of royals. To wintertime, when they transform their city into a classic Dickensian Christmas scene complete with roasted chestnuts and festive markets.
It’s no surprise that this city is a top destination, not just because of its history, shopping, theater, nightlife and famous royal family (who you might just catch a glimpse of!), but because you’ll never tire of it!
Which means, a trip to London is always a good idea, along with a London photographer to capture your experience.
