London: one of the world’s most iconic cities. Steeped in history and culture, the UK capital is today one of the global leaders in fashion, music, commerce, entertainment and more. From Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, London’s landmarks are renowned across the planet and offer an experience like no other to budding tourists. It’s no wonder the city is among the most visited in the world.
Whether sampling award-winning shows in the West End, taking in ancient history like never before at the British Museum or strolling around the many Royal Parks, there really is something for everyone in this vibrant city. It couldn’t be easier to get around, too. While compact enough to explore on foot, a visit to London would seem incomplete without using the Underground – or even travelling via boat on the River Thames.
When it comes to football, you can rest assured that London is among the world’s leading heavyweights. Home to five English Premier League teams, the city has been captivated by football since the 19th century and has played host to many classic FA Cup, European Cup and UEFA Champions League finals – not to mention the iconic 1966 FIFA World Cup™ Final. From Stamford Bridge to Wembley Stadium, London is quite simply a paradise for football fans.
As the saying goes: “A bad day in London is still better than a good day anywhere else.”
