England's capital, London, is a vibrant melting pot of history, culture, superb restaurants and entertainment. It is as much known for its sights as it is for its multiculturalism, trendy shopping and buzzing arts scene. Despite its size, many of the attractions are located within the city centre and are easily reached on foot or via the underground, as well as bus services that enable you to travel to where you want to go around the city with ease. London is well-connected to the main international airports that surround the city, including Gatwick, Stansted and Heathrow Airports, which can all be reached via express train services and other public transport.
