About London

Such is the pull and influence of London on our minds that everyone wants to visit the city at least once in their lifetime. From magazines to television to online articles to movies and even posters, London is the place to visit. It is the ultimate tick in every travel enthusiast’s check list. The mega metropolitan city is the capital as well as the largest city of both England and the United Kingdom as well as western Europe and the European Union. Situated on the river Thames, the spirit of London is noisy, is vibrant and as multicultural as you can ever get on the whole planet. No where else can anyone find such a huge diaspora of people with multi ethnic backgrounds. The city is culturally explosive. You can hate it, but London can not be ignored. Considered one of the world's leading global cities,London remains an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade. Antique landmarks like the Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Tower of London take us back in time while still being within the limits of ever developing London. Eye catching ancient buildings amongst the modern ones provide a truly unique contrast. With the best of architecture on display, London is where seasoned centuries old narrative collides with cutting age tech.

It is a city of ideas and innovations where creativity is key. The creative milieu is streaked with left field attitude. Things to do in London are aplenty with the famous landmarks being at the top of the list. For a taste of old London, visit the Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the Queen in Westminster. London Eye is another hype of the city being the world's third largest observation wheel, situated on the South Bank of the Thames with magnificent views over London. Marble Arch is a white Carrara marble monument designed by John Nash. It is located in the middle of a huge traffic island. Piccadilly Circus is one of the most photographed sights in London where the statue of Eros is erected in the middle while the north eastern side of it is dominated by a huge, iconic neon sign. Tower Bridge is the iconic 19th century bridge located by the Tower of London near the city and has featured in countless stamps and depictions of the city over generations. The tower of London is situated to the south east of the city, and is London's original royal fortress perched by the Thames. It is over 900 years old, contains the Crown Jewels and is a World Heritage site. It is also considered by many to be the most haunted building in the world! So Ghosthunters can have a field day. Trafalgar Square is the city centre and amongst the most iconic and famous city squares on Earth that is always full of hustle and bustle. Gherkin and The Shard are some of the modern architectural wonders and places of tourist interests with the former being a peculiar shaped sky scraper and the latter is the tallest building in EU with a gorgeous observation deck on its 72nd floor. Parks like Hyde Park and Richmond Park are enormous expanse of greenery for a nice picnic spot. Museums, art galleries and live performances are some of the other endless options to consider while in London.

Local Culture - With one in three Londoners being foreign born, the city is very multicultural. People from over 250 nationalities and speaking as many languages reside in the London metropolitan area. This cosmopolity also goes deep into the diversity and infuses daily life, food, music and fashion. Famous for being tirelessly and constantly evolving with new ideas brimming 24x7, innovation in London is always right there in the next nook or corner. The ‘melting pot’ of people in the capital brings a rich diversity of art and culture

Dining - This melting pot also brings along diversity in food culture of London. There is something to suit all pockets. The city is famous for new ideas and inventions in the cuisine department. From the famous English breakfast to the rare and exquisite Ethiopian meal, there is everything from the simplest to the most rare of dishes. The gastronomical pleasures derived from a food trip to London are endless.

Things to Keep in Mind - Prices inevitably become inflated at venues closest to major tourist attractions. Beware the so-called tourist traps. It can be very dangerous in London in the snow, as slippery conditions combine with crowds with inevitable consequences. So travellers should be very prepared for problems in the snow, both in moving by foot and public transport. The Buckingham Palace is open for tours only during summers.
