Discover the City of London
A growing city of incredibly diversity, London is everything you ever wanted and more. It is as hip as Los Angeles and yet old and beautiful like Paris. With an ever growing and changing demographic, new influences abound. People are changing, new ideas are being developed and yet, at the heart of it all, London still manages to remain intrinsically English.
Over the years, London has become somewhat renown for its vibrant nightlife and experimental theater. As you walk the streets during the evening, you may well stumble upon the sounds of pop or techno or rave pouring out of an old Victorian building. If the oddness of this combination doesn't surprise you, you might find the use of the rebuilt Shakespeare theatre for new, experimental works to be somewhat intriguing.London has been at the forefront of fashion, film and music for centuries. And new, inventive cooking styles are taking the world by storm.
If you are more interested in the historical side of this great city, you will find no shortage of attractions. From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace, there are lots of beautiful old buildings, parks and palaces to see. If you like to be entertained, you might try the London Dungeon, Madame Tussaud's or go watch the changing of the guards. Not too far from London, the famous Stonehenge stand silently as flocks of tourists photograph it enthusiastically.
The shopping is incredible here - from the small quaint market at petticoat lane to the impressive and large shopping centers where you can find anything you could possibly want, London has it all.
Making your way about London's somewhat higgledy-piggledy streets may seem a bit confusing at first so an accurate map is always a good idea. But you will soon find that it is not as confusing as you thought and finding your way on foot, in car or using the underground will almost become second nature.
Over the years, London has become decidedly modern even with its rich historical heritage. It is a place of new thinking, busy living and diversity - all adding to its attractiveness as a destination.
