World leader in art, fashion and music, London is home to many popular tourist hotspots such as the West End, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, The London Eye, The Strand and the Square Mile. Much of London is easily navigable by underground train offering twelve train lines across the length and breadth of the city. Buy a travel card and roam London by underground train and red London bus or get a thoroughly comprehensive tour of the city aboard an open topped Tourist Bus.
Popular London landmarks are too numerous to mention and include the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the Globe Theatre, Trafalgar Square, Hyde and Regents Park. Regents Park offers its own Zoo as well as Open Air Theatre during the summer months. Hosting more art galleries and museums in the city than anywhere else in the United Kingdom, tourists are well positioned to choose between the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Gallery, the Tate Modern and the Natural History Museum.
Central to London is the River Thames offering lunch and dance cruises and small stretches of pebble beaches. A popular attraction at the Thames is a ride upon the London Eye before jumping upon the London Underground subway system to Oxford Street for retail therapy. London is as popular for its multi floored, upmarket Harrods and Selfridge stores as its chirpy black taxi cab drivers.
