Buckingham Palace

“I've always been brought up to love the Royal Family and this year is a special year with the Queen's Jubilee. Buckingham Palace is in the heart of London, and it’s been the scene of so many great moments in British history. None of us will ever forget the amazing wedding last year (Will & Kate) and best of all; it’s open for visitors during the summer; so you can have a look around the State Apartments." - David Beckham 960 1280

“I've been fortunate to play in The Premier League, one of the greatest football leagues in the world, and you can’t beat the atmosphere of being there for a game. If you can’t catch a game across the country, then check out the fantastic stadium tours at places like Old Trafford, Anfield and Stamford Bridge, and of course, Wembley." - David Beckham 960 1280

“It seems like many sports in the world have their origins in Britain, and Scotland is the home of Golf. It's where the game was invented and where you’ll find some of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the world. If you love the game, make your way to the Old Course at St Andrews Links." - David Beckham 960 1280

“Britain leads the world in fashion and has some of the best shopping experiences in the world. Manchester’s designer stores around the Northern Quarter are a match for anything in London, but if you don’t have time to leave the capital; then you will be spoilt for choice around town and some fantastic markets like Camden, Portobello and Spitalfields." - David Beckham 960 1280

“Kids can’t get enough of theme parks as I know being a father of 4. You're never far away from one in Britain: Alton Towers is close to Stoke -- and just outside London -- you’ll find Thorpe Park. New in town is the Warner Bros. Studio Tour where you can see the making of Harry Potter movies." - David Beckham 960 1280

“If there’s one thing you can’t miss when you’re in London, its Theatre land. I love going out with the family to a show. The West End is famous for musicals and shows, and they are great for a night out or a family matinee. Young and old will love the Lion King or Matilda, and there’s always something to see when I’m back in London like War Horse or Jersey Boys." - David Beckham 960 1280
