London

What you need to know before you go

    Few cities rival London when it comes to iconic landmarks. From the regal elegance of Buckingham Palace to the Gothic-style splendour of Big Ben, the British capital makes a dramatic first impression. It's truly a city of contrasts – Knightsbridge, with its decadent department stores and ostentatious jet-set vibe, feels a world away from hipster enclave Shoreditch, with its vibrant street art and edgy nightspots.

    No visit to London is complete without sampling the glitz and glamor of the West End theatre district and the cosmopolitan cafe culture of Soho. And forget the trite stereotype of bland British food. From mouth-watering market-stall fare to minimalist Michelin-starred restaurants, you can feast like royalty on any budget.
