doesn't love Old Blighty? From the emerald-green rolling hills of the countryside
to mysterious Stonehenge to the bustling streets of London, England has been captivating
visitors for as long as we can remember. And London, one of the major business
capitals of the world, is its biggest attraction. There's nothing you will
have trouble finding in London (except Mexican food -- it's a rare commodity there,
but with 60 other cuisine choices, you'll hardly worry about it). London is arguably
the most cosmopolitan city in the world, boasting an ethnically diverse population
and a rich history. With 1,200 hotels and a wide range of alternative lodging
options (such as B&Bs and unhosted apartments), there's something to fit every
taste and budget in the capital city.
to London will never be bored -- its nightlife, attractions and sightseeing options
are virtually unparalleled. Tour the 33 historic gardens (in the summer, make
sure to see Queen Mary's Garden in Regent's Park -- the thousands of roses will
leave you breathless), stop in for a pint at one of London's 3,500 pubs, check
out the shops on Regent Street, explore Covent Garden and take a long stroll along
time to take in a theatre production (or a few if you've got the time and cash)
and to see the British Museum. And if you've got a hankering for some traditional
fish and chips, check out North Sea Fish Restaurant (on Leigh Street, a few blocks
north of Russell Square) -- their crisp fried fish is delectable and the best
in the city.
you're there for business or pleasure, make sure you've got comfortable shoes.
It's easy to get around London, but since taking a cab is quite pricey, you've
got to be willing to take the Tube and walk a lot. After all that exercise, though,
you won't feel so guilty splurging on a pint of ale!
