    'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.' Samuel Johnson

    Visit London, UK, and see how Dr Johnson's words ring true.

    London has something for everybody, making it perfect for sightseeing. You can visit world-famous attractions such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Madame Tussauds and the Tower of London. These are just a few, of course!

    This cosmopolitan city hosts a variety of cultural attractions, too, so that you really can learn something every day while you're in London. Entry to the National Gallery, Tate Modern, National History Museum and the National Portrait Gallery is free, allowing you to enjoy London for less.

    See a concert at the O2 arena, enjoy ballet and opera in the Royal Opera House (Covent Garden), or experience different musical styles in Camden's Jazz Cafe. Sports enthusiasts, meanwhile, will love London, home to Lords cricket ground, Wimbledon tennis club, Ascot racecourse, Twickenham rugby ground and, naturally, Wembley football stadium.

    Major cities are great for shopping and London is no exception. You can - and should - visit the boutiques and market in Covent Garden, vintage shops in Notting Hill and Harrod's in Knightsbridge.

    In London you'll always have somewhere to go drinking or dancing. Remember the city hosts the Ministry of Sound club, where you can really let your hair down in the home of dance music. If you want somewhere to eat, London makes the choice yours with its variety of restaurants.
