The world financial center, the English capital was actually founded by the Romans. Its long history has seen it burned down and bombed, but London Town always comes back with a vengeance. Construction is currently under way in East London in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. Classic London sights include Westminster, where the English Parliament operates, and Buckingham Palace, the home of the Royal Family. London’s gloomy grey skies do nothing to dampen its culture, which is a ferment of music, theater, and dance. Hipsters crowd Camden, Shoreditch, and Hoxton while the upper crust of society hangs their collective hat in Hampstead, Kensington and Chelsea in the palatial Georgian homes. Government investment in art means the museums like the National Gallery are all free. Theater both in the West End and off is excellent. Transport on the double-decker red buses or the tube is efficient if not cheap, while London cabbies are notoriously knowledgable about the city. The food does not have the best reputation, although it has improved in recent years and one would be hard pressed to complain about a pint and roast dinner at a cosy English pub. (unless, of course, you are a vegetarian). London is also extremely international, with a large Indian population and loads of ethnic restaurants. A major world capital, London is a cosmopolitan, modern city.

London happens to be where I had my "Ah-ha" moment. Before that, I had never wanted to travel to Europe. Walking around the streets and seeing history every inch around me really brought me to a new place in life. The Tube makes me feel alive. I have nothing bad to say about London. Except that I am not there.

London is a beautiful city full of history and is literally one giant tour ground of museums, castles, and timelessness. At every corner are statues and monuments of military generals. The museums are amazing, and you can learn everything you want about English history. Try the infamous fish and trips. Only drawback is the constant grayess of the weather. Visit the Tower Of London to see where famous prisoners were held, and be sure to stop by Buckingham Palace and Westminster.

Hands down my favorite city! As Samuel Johnson said, if you've grown tired of London, you've grown tired of life! There is something for everyone here. If you don't believe me, check out my guide!

Museums, history, Royalty, theater, sport and the list goes on. There is so much to do I would recommend breaking it down by days. A museum day, a 'tourist' day (like Tower Bridge), a Royal day (Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Place).

Even though we were there in August, the weather was cold and rainy most of the time. The city itself felt very dirty, although some of that was likely caused by the construction for the Olympics. That said, there is a lot to see and do, as long as you don't mind warm beer.

There's no international destination that I've visited more than London and no other city that has the same chic vitality that you find in New York. Though overflowing with historical buildings, London is no museum piece. Whether it be the shopping along Oxford Street or the nightlife around Piccadilly, there's always something to do.

I am completely in love with this vibrant, cultural, beautiful city. It is modern and historic at the same time, filled with a delightful paradox of traditional and unconventional style. Spiky-mohawked teenagers walk around just behind stern businessmen in suits, ladies sit gossiping over tea at a street cafe, and rowdy "blokes" roar their appreciation in smoke-filled pubs. Ride the enormous London Eye, then tour the centuries-old Tower of London. Zip around the metropolis in the famous double-decker busses, surrounded by old buildings, prominent banks, and the huge waving Union Jack on every corner. Then cruise the Thames on a river boat tour, marking down a never-ending list of places you want to see. Then grab a pint and mingle with the locals at night, or catch your choice of a theater performance, punk rave, or old-fashioned cinema. London is alive, teeming with culture, and ready to keep you busy for weeks.Recommended for

One of the most Beautiful, Interesting, Historical cities in the world.
London has it all and of course is the host of the 2012 Olympic Games!
