The City of London (England)
Advantages: Lots to do and see.
Disadvantages: It would take a long time to see it all.
London is the city to visit if you are considering traveling to the United Kingdom. With it's unique spots like Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, which is 135mm high and the world's tallest observation wheel and some of London's most wonderful theaters, galleries and museum ensure that there is something to see and do for everyone.
The West End shops are a must to see on Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road, along with Camden town. There are the markets too in various parts of London, such as Portobello Road, Camden, Greenwich and Convent Garden.
London is a vast city with many places to see that with one visit it is just not enough. Visit Greenwich Meridian and set your watch by the red Time Ball that drops every day at 1pm. Visit Greenwich's popular market too.
Also, take a tour on one of London's open air Top Buses and get to see the sights on offer before starting your tours around London. It's a good way to see what will most interest you first in case you do not have much time in London.
Another area you may to see is the London Bridge and the Tower of London, where you can see the Crown Jewels and visit the castle. Not far from there, is the London Dungeons, which is an enjoyable excursion along with being scary. Here you get to see the history of the days of Jack the Ripper and learn about the Great Fire of London.
Visit Madam Tussuad, which is definitely a place you must not miss. This is a place where famous wax works can be seen.
In the evening, take in a show or play at one of Convent Garden's theaters or in Piccadilly Circus. Take a walk all around Convent Garden, where there are many artists on the streets performing, along with going to the market.
One place you most not forget is the famous Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square. Leicester Square has cinemas where all London Premieres take place, along with more theaters. Walk around Trafalgar Square and see Nelsen's statue.
Another place to visit is the Buckingham Palace, which is now open to public viewing. This is the home of the present Queen Elizabeth. Watch the Changing of the Guard too.
There is, also, some museums that not be missed. There is the British Museum, Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Museum of London, which shows special exhibitions like London's Burning that explores the Great Fire of London. This is the most interesting one of all in my opinion.
It is very exciting to visit London, which is where I was born. So, if you are thinking of taking a trip there, then make sure you write down what you want to see in order of preference, as there is so much to choose from.
