London is an adrenaline-charged, cultural and historical mecca. Head to the Tate Modern to see contemporary art, then take a stroll along the Southbank and cross Tower Bridge to see awe-inspiring city views. You could stop by the Ritz for afternoon tea, or go to Borough Market for lunch. Simply walking around the centre of London reveals some of the world's most historic landmarks including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. By evening, the action ramps up in the pubs around Soho and the West End theatre district crackles with energy. Catch a show or pop into one of the many bars and soak up the atmosphere of this amazing city.
