Founded more than 2000 years ago by the Roman invaders, London is a cultural capital, political and economic global, enormous metropolis, modern, vibrant, warm and no longer English, but really cosmopolitan. A world city like New York, Paris or Tokyo, the City is a melting-pot to the English sauce: represents more than 50 nationalities speaking more than 300 languages...
Visit the city symbols to take the measure of the City, a single stay does not suffice... the abundance of attractions reflects a rich number of tourists absolutely incredible: only to see the famous London museums to be convinced!
London is a cosmopolitan and the largest and the most modern city in Western Europe and the capital city of United Kingdom and England. There is no other city on Earth quite like London. Red double-deckers, black cabs, bobbies and beefeaters. Trendy fashions, cockney accents. Royal pomp and palaces with red-coated guardsmen in bearskin hats. London is a lively metropolis of the most cherished icons and legendary landmarks like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus, Tower Bridge, Nelson's Column, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, the British Museum and the National Heritage Gallery. These are the must see London attractions for the rich history of the capital of the United Kingdom.
London is a cultural city, but also a city that knows to take time, especially on Sunday. Londoners love to take advantage of their vast parks such as Hyde Park, at over 350 acres, stroll along the Thames...
London is also famous for its nightlife, going out is a national sport for Londoners who are very spoiled in the matter. The neighborhoods of Soho, Covent Garden, Mayfair and Piccadilly Circus concentrate theaters, concert halls, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs among the most famous and have an international aura.
The city is also paradise for shoppers. Napoleon once famously declared Britain to be a nation of shopkeepers and nowhere is that more true than in the nation's capital, world comes to London for shopping. Here, you're sure to find what you want, but this wealth has its price: life in London has become very expensive and accommodation for modest budgets has significantly deteriorated. The price of real estate exceeds the New York or Tokyo. There are London hotels available for every budget.
