The European equivalent of New York, London, is always buzzing with both day-life and night-life. That's why narrowing down the best things to do in London is a demanding job. History, shopping, arts, business, tourism... London has it all! So, what is London famous for?
Starting of with the basic, must-see attractions in London, we come upon the emblematic London Tower Bridge, enabling vehicles and pedestrians cross the river Thames since the 19th century. If you want to do something fit for royalty, pay a visit to the richly appointed premises of the Buckingham Palace, the queen’s official residence. Hold on to that royal feeling with a visit to the Houses of Parliament (The Palace of Westminster), attached to the famous Big Ben. A little (or a lot!) of art is up next, an absolute London must, the National Gallery. Not only is this a free entrance, but you will get to see one of the greatest collections of European art in the world. And for a British alternative, you must go to the fun and funky Camden Market, an area filled with crafts, clothing, leather goods, souvenirs and food venues.
