One of the most tourist places in the world is London and it has something for everyone from history and culture to fine food and good times and it is world-famous for its natural wonders, beaches, museums, and monuments.
Buckingham Palace: The scene of London's most popular display of pomp and circumstance, the Changing of the Guard. It has been the London residence of the Royal Family since Queen Victoria's accession.
The Tower of London and Tower Bridge: One of Britain's most iconic structures, this spectacular World Heritage Site offers hours of fascination for visitors curious about the country's rich history.
The British Museum: The most tourists head first for the museum's most famous exhibits: the controversial Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon, the Rosetta Stone, the Egyptian mummies, and the spectacular hoard of 4th-century Roman silver known as the Mildenhall Treasure.
Big Ben and Parliament: It's as iconic a landmark as Tower Bridge. Below it, stretching along the Thames, are the Houses of Parliament, the seat of Britain's government for many centuries.
The Victoria and Albert Museum: The Victoria and Albert Museum (aka the V&A) is part of a South Kensington-based group of museums that includes the Natural History Museum and Science Museum.
