London, a city guide

Unlock 2000 years of history on the banks of the Thames in a cityscape that gets better with time. Watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and find out why ravens are so important a sight at the Tower of London. Picnic in its Royal Parks, see a show in the colourful West End or scour the East End’s many markets for a bargain to take home. Don’t forget to ascend the Shard or ride the London Eye for a rooftop view of what’s probably the most fascinating city in the world.

Top Activities
in London

 

London Eye

The ferris wheel erected beside the River Thames was only supposed to be temporary, but nearly two decades later it's one of London's most popular visitor attractions. Take a champagne flight and enjoy all of London laid out beneath you as you make a rotation in one of the glass pods.

The Postal Museum

London had the only mail train in the world. Its driverless trains ran below the streets of the capital from Whitechapel to Paddington enabling the city's people to get their post. Today, this museum tells the 500 year old story of how England got its postal service and you can ride those trains for yourself.

Sherlock Holmes Museum

This museum is dedicated to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective. Step inside the door of 221b Baker Street - if the policeman will allow it of course - and the Victorian era interiors will open up a world of memorabilia devoted to one of Britain's best loved characters.

Best Shops

Harrods

No visit to London would be complete without a trip to the capital's most famous department store. Rivalled only by Oxford Street's Selfridges, this store once boasted there was nothing it couldn't source for its customers if they were willing to pay. These days there's plenty of tempting merchandise to keep souvenir hunters happy.

Fortnum & Mason

This department store is a stand out for one particular section - and that's its food hall. Established in 1707, it holds a Royal Warrant for the Queen and also for Prince Charles. In its long history the store has sent hampers to the suffragettes after they broke its windows and installed a quaint clock whose bells come from the same foundry as Big Ben.

Hamleys

London's most famous shopping street is a magnet for those with children to buy for. Hamleys toy store has been a fixture at its current address since the 1880s, though it predates its Regent Street location by several decades. Its multiple floors of toys will delight children of all ages.
