World’s Best Holiday Destinations: London

Among World’s Best Holiday Destinations is the city of London, known and admired by many visitors who decide to go. Built along the River Thames in England, it is a city with a history that goes back two millennia. The most difficult part of taking a guided tour of London is where to start first.

You might want to take a double-decker red bus tour just to get the lay of the land. They’re inexpensive tours to take and you can decide where you want to spend your time. Another fun tour is one that takes you around to all of the afternoon tea places London has to offer. Who says you can’t have just one of those scrumptious scones with clotted milk and jam?

London

Many guided tours of London will take you to St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Tourists can visit the whispering gallery as well as the tombs of many past famous individuals in London’s history. Westminster’s Abbey is also beautiful and was home to the funeral of Princess Diana.

In London, most guided tours will show you both Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen of England and the famous “changing of the palace guard”. It’s really touristy but worth saying that you’ve been there. Kensington Palace has elegant grounds and was home to Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Holland Park Gardens are nearby and are perfect places to meet up with your fellow tourists or to take a short walk.

The Tower of London

The Tower of London would be a good place to get off the bus and take a leisurely tour of the place. Perhaps the most beautiful place to see inside the tower is the vault containing England’s crown jewels. Visitors ride a conveyor belt in a darkened room that highlights the glittering jewels. If you’re lucky, you’ll be on one of the guided tours of London that allows you a lengthy stop at the British Museum. The famed Rosetta Stone can be seen up close and personal along with ancient artifacts brought home when British explorers visited ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt.

Perhaps, you’ve got time for nightlife? Maybe you’ll all get tickets to Leicester Square where you can take in a world film premiere. In addition, many shopping areas are open late and there are so many restaurants that can round out your tour of this exciting city.
