Things to do in London, England
Sightseeing in London can keep you busy for days, thanks to its wealth of historic royal palaces, buildings and churches. And then there’s the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum. Art lovers will appreciate the contrast between collections at London’s Tate Modern and the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Call in at Madame Tussauds to mix with the famous and infamous and don’t miss a River Thames cruise to Greenwich, home of the Royal Maritime Museum and the Cutty Sark, taking in the iconic Tower Bridge along the way.
When it comes to shopping, London is world renowned for its fine tailoring and innovative designer boutiques. Find department stores along Oxford Street and Regent Street and swoon at the famous labels as you parade down Bond Street and along the Burlington Arcade. Harrods and the many boutiques of Knightsbridge are also a must.
After a stroll through Hyde Park, relax in one of the welcoming, traditional English pubs found on almost every corner. Catch a spectacular stage production in London’s West End to top off the overwhelmingly unique experience a London vacation affords.
