The UK’s vibrant and multicultural capital city
With a long and enthralling history dating back from the Roman times, London is a diverse and multicultural global city. It’s hard not to fall in love with the vibrant atmosphere of the UK capital with its endless list of things to see and do.
Central London is home to most of the city's famous buildings and monuments, including Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey. Visitors can also explore the world-renowned shopping and entertainment streets of Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, and Regent Street.
For cultural buffs, a show on the West End is a must-see. Visitors can also explore the city’s many free-entry museums and galleries including The British Museum, Natural History Museum, The National Gallery, V&A and the TATE Modern.
The city is home to a - perhaps surprising - number of parks, gardens and green spaces. Visitors can take a walk stroll through Hyde Park, see spectacular flower displays at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens, or enjoy stunning views of the city from Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath.
London is host to a variety of street markets. Visitors can head to Portobello Road for antiques, Borough Market for fresh produce, Greenwich for arts & crafts, Columbia Road for beautiful flowers, Brixton for street food, or Camden for unique and eclectic goods.
