At a Glance

London, the capital of England and United Kingdom, may be a 21st-century city steeped in pageantry and tradition (Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey) but it’s also one of the most cosmopolitan, international and diverse cities in the world. Today, it continues to evolve in fine art, cuisine, fashion, and design. Take a river boat ride along the Thames River. See panoramic views of the city when atop the London Eye observation wheel or the Shard. Delve into local fare; try fish and chips, steak and kidney pie, bangers and mash, and Yorkshire Pudding. Rely on London’s Tube to travel within the city and explore the neighborhoods. There’s culture at every juncture; museums, galleries, music halls, historical gardens, architecture, and so much more. London is a great destination for all ages.
