Top attractions in London
Whether you're a shopaholic or a culture wizard, London is your town. The city is home to over 70 Michelin-starred restaurants, contains four UNESCO world heritage sites, as well as the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens, which holds the world's largest living plant collection. You'll also find 150 ancient monuments, 900 bookstores (twice as many as in New York) and over 32,000 musical performances that take place every year. If you go to the London Eye, you'll see over the city, an absolute must-do for first-time visitors. Some of Europe's most fascinating markets are in London. Check out the Portobello Market for antiques or the Old Spitalfields Market if you're on the lookout for young designers.
The city is known for its amazing public transport. Visit tfl.gov.uk or download the app on your phone for guidance. It's cheap and fun to travel around on a double-decker or sail down the Thames. The world-famous Underground is also fascinating but can be quite crowded at times. It doesn't cost a penny to go to museums in the UK. Visit the world-famous British Museum, the Tate Modern, the National Gallery, the Victoria & Albert, or many of the other museums and galleries. If you're travelling with children, we recommend the Science Museum. Nearly a third of London is green space! Have a picnic in a park, or grab some fish and chips and nosh as you stroll through.
