Taking a walk up embankment and through Westminster is all the reminder you need that London is an amazingly special city. The street performers that range from superbly talented to just plain weird, the skate park that is bursting with the spirit of youth, the lines and lines of tourists waiting to catch a view from the London Eye, and this famous symbol of London are all part of what makes London unique and wonderful.
Doesn't matter if you're a tourist or a local, it's hard to walk past Big Ben without being in awe of the beauty and intricate design of this colossal structure. Don't forget to appreciate the city through the eyes of a tourist once in a while -- not everyone is lucky enough to have something like this at their doorstep.
