Keep calm and carry on

Tower Bridge

Every city I have been to so far, has been romantic and enchanting in its own way, but London was definitiely my love at first sight. Now I understand why is it one of the most visited cities by international tourist arrivals. I have always wanted to visit Cuba and Barcelona, but London has never been on the top of my wish list. Maybe that’s why it left me breathless. Actually, I always strive to go somewhere I have never been before, but London is with no doubt a place I would come back immediately. There is so many things to do, so many places to visit, and no matter how many times you come back, there will always be something new to discover.

Enjoying the flight

If you’re visiting London for the first time, the easiest and the best way to discover it, is to take an open top bus tour around the city to check out some of the most famous monuments and landmarks: The Tower of London, London Bridge, Tower Bridge, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and much more. For this tour you will pay 26 GBP on the spot. However, the tour or any other museum or attraction in London can be booked in advance by internet, so you can save a lot of money even before you come here. Before you head out to explore the magic of the capital of England, make a list of everything you want to see. No matter how many days you stay, there we’ll not be enough time to visit everything you want.

London is really a true modern Babylon – the City where one sees all nations, races and religions of the world. On the streets of London you can hear over 300 different languages, and do not be surprised by girls who walk around in sandals, with bare feets or dressed in strapless shirts, while you freezing in a feathered jacket, scarf and hat in mid-December.

Don’t forget to take a ride on the London Eye which provides amazing views of a stunning city. An increasingly popular idea is to visit the Eye at night time when the view is perhaps at its most magical. The ride costs 18.99 GBP.

The excellent view of the city, you can also enjoy from the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the second largest church in the world after the St. Peter’s in Rome.
