About London

Enjoy a rewarding cultural and historical experience on a trip to London! There’s so much heritage in this British city – from landmarks like The Tower of London and Big Ben to a visit to the Harry Potter Studios to a traditional English teatime. There is sure to be something in London to delight every member of your family. Learn about the history of the Royal Family on a visit to Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, or Windsor Castle. Give your children a chance to blow off steam in the famous Princess Diana Memorial Playground, located in Kensington Gardens. Go shopping at world-renowned retailers like Harrods Department Store or Hamleys (a toy store with a whopping seven floors). Take some time for tea at the pretty pink storefront of Peggy Porschen. Have a look through fabulous museums like the Victoria & Albert, the National Gallery, or the British Museum. See a show in London’s theatre district. Take a cruise down the River Thames. Hear what locals have to say at the Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. Whether you embark on a guided tour or explore the city yourself, London will not disappoint.
