Over 200 years later, Dr. Johnson is still right. London is the place to be with so many different things to do and places to visit. Here are a few.
Royal London. You can visit Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s London home, and see the changing of the guard at 11 a.m. every day.
In the Tower of London, you can see the crown jewels and visit the place where many famous prisoners lived and died.
You can take a boat trip on the Thames to Hampton Court. In the gardens of this palace is a famous maze, which is easy to get into, but not so easy to get out of.
Rainy days. London is one of the best places to be on a rainy day, which is quite often.
Because of all of its museums and galleries, if you like machines, you must go to the Science Museum.
Next door, you will find the Natural History Museum with its excellent dinosaur exhibition.
The British Museum is one of the world’s great museums with its excellent collections from Greece and Rome.
Art lovers can visit the National Gallery, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, or the National Portrait Gallery.
Shopping. London attracts shoppers from all over the world for the latest fashions.
The main shopping area is in the west end around Oxford Street.
There are also famous street markets at Portobello Road, Camden Lock, and Petticoat Lane, where you can buy anything from bargain jewelry to expensive antiques.
Going out. There is always a wide choice of place to see at London’s many feeders in the west end around Covent Garden.
