As the capital of Great Britain, London is a large and exciting city. It is home to some of the most recognizable structures in the world, and is a truly iconic global destination. There are many historical landmarks worth visiting, including Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower and Bridge of London. Of course, the royal family is also a wonderful aspect of London. Visitors can get a taste of the royal life by visiting Kensington Palace or Buckingham Palace, and perhaps even touring them during the open months of the year. London is a cultural hub in the country, with countless museums and art galleries to choose from. Favourites include the British Museum and the Tate Modern. The evenings are just as exciting, with concerts in many of the Camden area clubs and countless theatre performance nightly on the West End.
