London, one of the world's greatest cities, offers a bountiful array of attractions and activities. For those intrigue with the royals, to the adventure seeker, to those who want to take in all the major museums and attractions this city can satisfy your every request.
For starters there is the Queen's residence at Buckingham Place or Kensington Palace, which has been home to a list of royalty, including Diana, Princess of Wales. Explore the Tower of London's 900-year history as a royal palace, fortress and prison or discover one of the most chillingly famous horror attraction the London Dungeon or be fascinated with the realistic waxwork at Madame Tussad's.
To get the most spectacular view of the city, take a ride on the London Eye, which looks like a gigantic ferris wheel, is the largest observation wheel in the world. Hop on a circular cruise on the river Thames or hop on the Original London Sightseeing Tour showing the best of this city from open red double-decker buses. Or plainly tour the city yourself, take in the stunning Tower Bridge and a glimpse of the London Bridge, to the famous London Clock - Big Ben, visit the squares Trafalgar and Leicester, to the inviting Covent Gardens, or taking a stroll in Hyde Park, shopping galore at Knightsbridge you will find here Harvey Nichols, Harrods or simply visit any of these streets, Regent, Oxford and Bond.
For the nightlife, either take in a night at the Royal Opera House or check into the club scene, hang out at a cool bar, stay low key at a pub, chill to the mellow sounds of jazz, or experience 3D images on BFI London IMAX Cinema the UK's biggest cinema screen.
The options are wide open so go ahead and take it all in, in London.
