Discover London

London is one of the world’s great cities – some say the greatest! It was the Romans who first built the square mile now known as the City of London, which is the financial centre. Now 2,000 years later, it is the biggest city in Western Europe and has an economy that is larger than that of many countries.

London is famous for its architecture, with some parts – like the Tower of London (where you can find the famous ‘Beefeaters’) – dating back to the time of William the Conqueror, while others, like the Shard, have only recently been completed. London has been badly damaged several times, notably in 1666 when much was destroyed in the Great Fire, and then in WWII when bombs flattened many buildings. The streets of London are a living museum and are best seen on foot or open double-decker bus.

Some of London’s most famous attractions include Buckingham Palace (the Queen’s official home), the London Eye, Madame Tussaud’s, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square and the British Museum. And of course, shopping! Busy Oxford Street is a shopper’s paradise, and the city has every kind of shop imaginable if you know where to look!
