Discount London Vacations
Each year, 15 million people visit the city of London, cited as one of the world's leading tourism destinations. Perhaps it's the many attractions, cultural finds, and dining establishments - whatever it is, the capital of England and the largest metropolitan area in the UK keeps visitors coming back time and time again.
There are some interesting finds in the city of London that you won't come across elsewhere - and what better way to take them all in than the London Eye? This favorite tourist attraction is the world's largest observation wheel featuring a total of 32 spacious capsules that take visitors on a 30 minute ride high above the city. At the very top, more than 55 of London's famous landmarks are visible.
Though the birds-eye view of all these wonderful and unique places is nothing short of incredible, there are a few attractions you should most definitely see up close. These include the world-famous British Museum, the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square, and London's most iconic landmark, Big Ben. And don't forget to take a break from sightseeing for afternoon tea, a British tradition that you simply don't want to miss.
London is one of the greenest capitals of the world, bustling with outdoor hotspots perfect for sunbathing, strolling, relaxing, or playing with the kids. Parks are a favorite hangout of locals and tourists alike, especially Hyde Park (where Princess Diana's memorial fountain is located), The Regents Park (the largest outdoor sports area in London), and Richmond Park (home to 650 free roaming deer, cycle paths, riding stables, and two golf courses).
The best thing about London is the Tube, an underground public transit system that makes all the wonderful places in London easily accessible. All you need is a map, an Oyster Card (similar to New York City's Metro Card), and a little bit of curiosity to do and see it all in the culturally-rich city of London.
