London - The Big Smoke
Former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said it best. “London is a roost for every bird.” The visitor to London may simply be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of attractions and happenings that permeate the historic city. From the stateliness of the royal Buckingham Palace to the newest pop-up street-food stall lining Portobello Road, London is without question a global city with international flare, combining a rich cultural history with the modern trappings of a financial and transportation hub.
Don’t let the innumerable sites (nor the typical rainy weather!) put you off, as London certainly has something for everyone! Be it a whirlwind visit to the city’s historic core around the River Thames to catch sight of Big Ben, the House of Commons or the ever ornate Westminster Abbey, or a dash to the City to take a peek of London from atop the newly-built Shard – London offers ever-changing panoramas and perspectives at every stop.
Culture fiends will find their fill among the British Museum, the British Public Library and a host of riveting museums ranging from the scientific to the eccentric. For a moment of respite, London has an array of lush public parks – Hyde Park or Hampstead Heath, to name just a couple, that also offer unconventional lookouts of the city.
