One of the world’s most visited cities, London has something for everyone: history, theatre, art and commerce. With instantly recognisable landmarks – The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the Shard – the city is a culmination of antiquarian and modern. A city of ideas, London is a tireless innovator, championing the arts and culture. With a leftist attitude, it always seeks out the new – be it theatre, football or fodder.
Beyond London’s sight-packed centre you’ll find urbanite quarters, artist studios and further-afield the leafy vistas of Hampstead and Kew Gardens.
Dictating your pace is the best way to tackle the city. Start slow; pacing yourself is key if you’re to survive the heady hum-drum that is this global capital.
