“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”
— Samuel Johnson, 1777
This greatest of cities almost defies description – it’s cosmopolitan, trendy, fun and exciting 24/7, it’s also traditional, historic and gracious. All these characteristics – and more – are revealed as you wander from museum to gallery, along Victorian arcades and bustling streets, across vast parks and down cobbled alleys. The contrasts are endless: next to every historical sight, there’s a skyscraper gleaming with the confidence of modern life. Discovering these contrasts is one of the greatest pleasures of the city.
What’s Best To
Beat it beach, it’s all about our amazing city this year as we spring back into action ready for a long hot summer of sightseeing, eating out, shopping and culture.
