London's inherent uniqueness and mix of cultures have made it one of the most visited cities in the world. Its diverse bundle of boroughs are often like mini cities in their own right, with each one offering something different to the last.
London's iconic skyline is an eclectic combination of instantly recognisable landmarks, from the historic Tower of London to the ultra-modern skyscrapers of The Shard and 20 Fenchurch (better known as 'The Walkie-Talkie'). A walk through the ‘Square Mile’ immerses you in the original Roman settlement, with parts of the ancient defensive wall still visible. You'll also find some of the London's cosiest (and oldest) pubs around there, such as Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, a former haunt of Charles Dickens and Mark Twain.
For lovers of the arts, look no further than the world-class theatres of London's West End and the live music venues of Camden, Soho and Shoreditch. You'll also find endless galleries and museums dotted around, such as the free-to-visit British Museum, Natural History Museum and the National Gallery.
Amongst all the impressive architecture and endless points of interest, it's easy to forget how green London is. 47% of the city is made up of public green space, including 3,000 parks. The most popular spots include Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Green Park, but it's worth venturing out to places like Richmond where you can walk amongst roaming wild deer.
London is served by several major airports, including Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Stansted, Luton and Southend. Travel is made easy by the extensive public transport links, as well as private coach services.

We love all the different mix of architecture around. Love London Bridge. It’s clean lots to do. It’s our wonderful capital and home of our most excellent Royal Family. Went to event at Wimbledon Theatre, excellent and the Royal Albert Hall which again top places.
I lived in the West End for 12 years and worked in London, overall, for 30 years, therefore, biased. West End changed since last there, as expected for large city. Considering size of city and bussle, very clean. Best city in the world, as far as I'm concerned. Has everything.
What I liked the most was the theatre we went to see wicked. I also enjoyed Madam Tusaud. What I didn't like was the crowds and the road diversions. And trying to find the right bus stop to get back to the hotel. Also everything was so expensive. Activities for children the London Eye. The Tower of London. The dungeons. The hop on hop off bus and boat.
London has to be the best city in the world for every type of entertainment. The museums are free and there are lots of them. The variety of restaurants is endless and the theatre choices are amazing. How can you not love London.
I recall London as being very very busy with a continuous stream of cars. This time it seemed much quieter, we had no problem crossing roads etc. The people were friendly and helpful. There's so much to see it's difficult to know where to start. Many of the public houses have magnificent arctiecture and are clearly very old. There seems to be an effort to preserve the integrity of these old buildings. The grandeur is also evident in many places, such as the British Museum, which must house one of the greatest collection in the world. However many of the attraction are very expensive and I feel, certainly overpriced. £32-00 to go to the top if the Shard for example.
Visited bond in motion museum for my husband and had general wander around the streets of Bermondsey and Thames walks popped in to Tate modern and had a visit to shard already arranged. Utilised Oyster card for travel - great system
