London, the capital of England, is a truly diverse place. As a holiday destination it is somewhere that everyone should go - no matter where you're from or your background. There is something in London for everyone and a trip here is guaranteed to leave you with plenty of memories.
There is a good chance you are from London if you are reading this post - and you already know why London is a great place to visit.
Of course if you are looking for a beach holiday, or somewhere nice and ralaxing, London definitely isn't the place for you, but as a city break it is second to none. There is so much going on and the pace of life may leave you breathless if you are not used to it but it is definitely an experience.
There are many tourist attractions in London - too many to mention in one post - The London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, London Bridge, Buckingham Palace, the River Thames... Evening entertainment is second to none - countless top-class theatres put on shows in the West End, and hundreds of clubs and bars pull in the punters as well. If you want to relax, Londons parks are lovely, especially in the summer.

Hotels can be expensive , but if you do you do your research you can find some cheap hotels in London. The Ritz might be out of most peoples league but its a good place to go for some afternoon tea, booking is recommended! Transport around the city is fairly good, with regular buses and tube trains linking up all areas of the city, and the famous London cabs if you want a more luxurious way to get round.
Overall London is definitely one of the best holiday destinations for a city break - you need a good week or so to see all the sights and really enjoy it. It's a city full of history, culture and great entertainment and is open all year round, no matter what the weather.
