Places to visit in London

London has several highlights on the famous UNESCO World Heritage List, including: Royal Botanic Kew Gardens, Tower of London, Palace of Westminster and Saint Margaret's Church. This is just a small selection of the awe-inspiring splendour the city has to offer. A historical monument is Buckingham Palace, where Queen Elizabeth II often resides. Tourists can watch the changing of the guard on set days of the week; a remarkable ceremony. For those looking for a cultural experience that is fit more for us commoners, a visit to one of the markets in Camden Town and Covent Garden is a must. There is plenty to see in London for art lovers, and most art museums offer free entry. The Natural History Museum, the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and Tate Modern are definitely worth a visit.

Discover London

In the centre of London you will come across numerous famous squares, such as Trafalgar Square, named after the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Piccadilly Circus is also a real crowd-puller; a meeting place for many and world famous thanks to the striking neon sides on the surrounding buildings. Don't forget Leicester Square, where four of London's major cinemas famously show the biggest world premieres. And no sweet tooth can resist stepping into the M&M's World shop, boasting four floors of chocolate delights. Not only is London known for its historic buildings, it is also one of the best cities for shopping. London is home to almost every flagship retail store, and every fashion designer has a shop. But there are also plenty of great cheaper shopping alternatives. The most famous shopping streets in London are Oxford Street, Regent Street and Carnaby Street.
