London is one of the world’s most famous cities, thanks to the many sights and attractions it has to offer. From Nelson’s Column, famously guarded by four lion statues at its base, at Trafalgar Square, to The Tower of London and Big Ben – England’s capital city is full of history, culture and beautiful architecture. For those keen on art and culture, there is no shortage of museums and art galleries; The Tate Modern, The National Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum and The British Museum are some of London’s world-famous attractions, as well as the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum and the Saatchi Gallery. The London Eye, located on the South Bank of the River Thames, provides spectacular views over London, and a stroll along Embankment by the Thames is ideal for post-work downtime. London’s West End has many theatres to choose from – whether you prefer a play, a musical, or a comedy – there are evening and matinee performances, and many restaurants will offer a pre-theatre menu. For lunchtime or evening entertainment, the restaurants, bars and pubs are diverse, from Ottolenghi – a Mediterranean and Middle Eastern restaurant in Islington, Berners Tavern in Soho, Nobu – fine Japanese cuisine in Berkeley Street, to the Bull & Last Gastro pub on Archer Street, or Burger and Lobster in various locations across London.
