Off to London !
Everyone will easily find a way to satisfy his desires and curiosity by visiting the British Museum, the Tate Modern, or even the National Gallery. Not to mention the Tower Bridge, Big Ben or the London eye, which all are important and famous landscape features of the city.
In the 2000s, The Shard, one the tallest building in Western Europe, also makes its appearance. It comprises the Shangri-La hotel, some restaurants and bars as well as apartments and offices. All of them offering a scenic view of the city.
Within the city, there is also a large number of parks where sportsmen, walkers and friends are all going, as soon as the weather permits to do so. Hyde Park, Regent’s Park and St James Park, to name a few, are one of the most popular and lively meeting points. In some of them, it is even possible to rent bicycles for a ride.
For a shopping spree, there are also numerous options available. Discovering the two famous arteries, Oxford Street and Regent Street, will already take some hours to stride across. To make a detour by Soho is also highly recommended.
On a different note, but still really pleasurable, Camden Town is worth a visit during a stay in London!
