Travellers fly to London for its museums, historical sites, monuments and attractions, many of which they can discover on foot or by bus, metro and even boat—each offering a unique view of the city. Among the many things to do in the English capital, royal landmarks, chic boutiques, verdant parks, lively squares and happening pubs are proof that there’s never a dull moment in London!
Royal watching: Many members of the British Royal Family still live in palaces located in London. Official residences include Kensington Palace and, of course, Buckingham Palace.
Museums: There’s something for every art lover in London, from fine arts at the Victoria & Albert Museum to modern and classic art at the Tate Galleries. The National Portrait Gallery features portraits of Britain’s most important historical figures, while the British Museum, founded in 1753, traces the history of civilization from its beginnings to modern times.
Hip neighbourhoods: Soho is London’s most cosmopolitan quarter, home to the city’s extensive Chinatown and a hub for the gay community. For the more artistically inclined, Brick Lane is the go-to neighbourhood of choice. The best part? All of these popular London scenes can easily be enjoyed on foot.
