As the capital city of England, London is full of things to see and do for all the family. It is the largest metropolitan area within Western Europe and has transport via its rail, road and air links to anywhere in the world.
London relies on tourism as its main source of income with it holding the title for attracting the most number of tourists to its city boundaries ahead of any other city in the world. Such tourist attractions as Big Ben, Madame Tussauds, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace and the Millennium Wheel are all fascinating visits.
The city itself has a booming financial district and also has an endless choice of shops, theatres in the West End, pubs and bars to take in. Covent Garden is a popular place to go and relax for some food, drink and entertainment.
The historic past of London that has been shaped by such events as the Blitz, the Great Fire of London, the Plague and many more momentous moments makes it one of the most unique cities in the world. There is certainly no other place in the world that has so much to offer. With the 2012 Olympic Games instigating a massive regeneration scheme in the East End, London is a buzzing centre of activity.
