Let the collections at Victoria and Albert Museum and Natural History Museum capture your imagination. Churchill War Rooms and Westminster Abbey will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral, ponder the world of politics at Houses of Parliament, and contemplate the long history of Tower of London.
