The London Eye
It's Official: London is the most popular destination in the world - Evening Standard
According to the Evening Standard, 4.9 million visitors travelled to London last summer, making it the most popular tourist destination in the world. So what makes people flock to England's capital? One thing's for sure, it is not the weather. Our Mayor, Boris Johnson attributes it to 'so many fascinating museums, the best theatre scene in the world, more green space than any other European city,' and 'numerous top sporting venues'.
London Sea Life Aquarium
London definitely does have a long list of tourist attractions. So many that a visitor can't possibly see them all in one trip. So where are the best places to go? If you have visited London before, where did you go, which was your favourite site? Was it somewhere educational like the Science Museum, a place to bask in nature like Kensington Gardens, or just a place of pure entertainment, such as a West End Theatre or the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall? Perhaps it was no one place in particular, but an experience of going on a bus, boat, or walking tour.
The Elizabeth Tower
If you live in London and have the luxury of visiting these places whenever you want, then like me, you might have trouble choosing from all the places you've been to. Some of the places I have most enjoyed visiting have been London's Sea Life Aquarium, St. James's Park, and Ripley's Believe it or Not! Museum. My favourite landmark, however is The Elizabeth Tower with faithful Big Ben.
