London

Vibrant and truly multicultural, London is a megalopolis of people, ideas and energy . . . a global capital of culture, fashion, finance, politics, trade, education, entertainment, media and the arts. Sprawled endlessly along the magical banks of the Thames, London has been attracting people from around the world for centuries and absorbing their colorful influences. Many tourists head to London for the history, art, fashion, music, food or nightlife (or a mixture of it all) and keep coming back for more. Honeymooners will not experience a second of boredom in this pulsating city with endless options for entertainment and relaxation.

To do:

  • Live Music. London is one of the best cities in the world for concerts, spanning from new musical trends to well known bands.
  • Theatre. See a musical, play or comedy in the West End. For Broadway-like musicals the Leicester Square area is highly recommended. In the centre of the square there is an official half-price TKTS booth. For listings buy the weekly magazine Time Out.
  • Watch football. Take in a home match of one of the city's 20+ professional football clubs for a true experience of a lifetime as you see the passion of the "World's Game" in its mother country. Many of the bigger clubs will require booking in advance, sometimes many months ahead, but smaller clubs allow you to simply turn up on match day and pay at the gate.
  • Tours galore.
