About London

Millions of people visit London every year. And that is not for nothing. The extensive metropolis has many attractions such as Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and The Tower Bridge. In addition, the living character of the mega-city is contagious.

Those who want to escape the hectic pace of the city can go to one of the city parks, of which Hyde Park is the best known and largest. Here you share the green with countless, little shy squirrels.

The British capital has a history dating back to the beginning of the era when the Romans built a settlement on the edge of the Thames. That settlement has since grown into a metropolis with 7.5 million inhabitants.

In addition to all historical and modern attractions, the numerous small-scale pubs are also worth a visit. In such a pub the feeling of the giant city quickly disappears and you might as well be in a small town in Wales in the local pub.

For those who want to shop, London is a small paradise. London is a shopping destination par excellence with well-known stores such as Harrods.
