London is a top destination so many ways: art, commerce, fashion, food, culture, sport, architecture and so much more. Over the centuries, the sprawling city has transformed into an absolutely gorgeous attraction in and of itself that has drawn the top movers and shakers in practically every discipline.
London’s historic landmarks are plentiful — Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament along the Thames River, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge, the Tower of London, the Globe Theatre and Westminster Abbey, to name but a few. On the more modern side of things are buildings such as the Shard, the Gherkin, the Leadenhall Building and City Hall.
Museums and galleries are everywhere in London, bringing together the old masters and new guard. (Speaking of which, be sure to catch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.)
No matter what kind of environment you’re craving, London is a great place to grab a drink. From centuries-old pubs to chic nightclubs and lounges, it’s as easy to find a pint as it is fine wine, craft cocktails and more. The dining scene is just as varied, as London continues to be a culinary hotspot. Many of the world’s top chefs operate Michelin-starred eateries in a wide cross-section of styles.
