London is home to Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, 10 Downing Street, London Bridge, the Tower of London, the London Eye, Westminster, Royal Courts of Justice, Hyde Park, Regent's Park, St James's Park and so much more.
Despite its size and scale, London is easy to navigate, friendly and welcoming to visitors. Just some of the reasons it’s so popular!
