All You Need to Know
There's nowhere in the world quite like London. The Capital of England is a vibrant, multicultural, 24-hour hub. Wind your way through the delightful blend of old and new; the buzz of the city and the tranquility of its many open spaces make London totally unique. Over 300 languages are spoken here, creating a fantastic place to experience culture from all over the world. Be sure to visit the major attractions: Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and others. And when it comes to getting around, just hop aboard a red double-decker bus -- or listen for "mind the gap" as you get on and off "The Tube," London's underground subway.
