London

The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Take a break from the city and head to Shadwell Basin outdoor Activity Centre and Soho Square. Museum-lovers will get to explore Churchill War Rooms and Sutton House. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Buckingham Palace, take an in-depth tour of Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, admire the masterpieces at Somerset House, and stop by Paul Smith No.9 Albemarle Street.

Take the guesswork out of planning a London vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
