London is one of the most visited cities on the planet. With its long history and thanks to the people with different backgrounds, London has many things to offer. London has 32 boroughs and most of them have something to offer.

Top 3 places to see
Buckingham Palace
If you want to see the Queen you must stop by her residence. During summer the palace is open for visiting. The palace has an impressive architecture that is worth seeing from the outside at any given time of the year.

Tower of London
Many tourists confuse Tower of London with Tower Bridge. The former is where the crown jewels are held at, it almost 1000 years old, and has ghost tours for those interested.

30 St Mary Axe or The Gherkin
From the 40th floor you get a 360 degrees view of London. If you like architecture, then the shape of the building alone is reason enough to make you stop by it.

Top 3 things to do
Listening to live music
There is no other city in the world with so many concerts per year. You’ll be more lucky if you go at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square. You will be really lucky if some famous band is playing. There are many venues, and countless small pubs and concert venues where artists can show off their talents.

Staying fit has never been easier. Londoners love skating so much they have summer and winter skating rinks, both indoor and outdoor. The indoor ice skating rinks are usually considered overpriced.

Discover walks
These are perfect for when you want to discover the less known London. You will most likely have a local guide around and disclose all London’s juicy secrets, such as about festivals and other events.
