London has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most expensive cities in the whole world. However, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations. This is probably due to the fact that the town of Thames has something to offer for any traveler, regardless of its budget, such as:

  • Westminster Abbey: Situated on the south side of Parliament Square, Westminster Abbey was the scene of many events of the utmost importance for the British. As one of the oldest churches in London, Westminster Abbey is a  spectacular medieval architecture.
  • Buckingham Palace: Situated on the end of the famous promenade the Mall, the building is now the home and the main activity of the entire family of Windsor. Who has the luck to get in his face shortly before 11:30, could watch a great show: changing of the guard. Buckingham Palace festivities include 19 rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 bathrooms and 78 offices
  • Tower of London: It was prison, mint and the royal menagerie, and now houses the precious jewels of the Crown, an extensive collection of precious metals and stones, each of the latter having its own story.
  • Tower Bridge: It is famous for its huge dump arms, which amounts to allow passage of larger vessels. Now this happens rarely, but in the times when traffic on the Thames was very intense, the arms of the bridge were rising for about five times per day.
  • Hyde Park: is one of the few quiet places in the British capital, except, perhaps, the Sunday mornings, when people who feel they have something to say meet in the corner orators, located in north-eastern extremity of the park. Absolutely anyone can take the word here, telling passers-by what they have in their soul.
  • British Museum: Besides antiques, museum displays a vast collection of paintings depicting virtually any time and European school.
  • Kensington Palace: Called the ghetto royal palace is now home of several members of the Windsor family.
  • Apsley House: This is an opulent hall with richly carved ceiling, walls covered with red damask and adorned with many classical paintings.
  • St. Paul Cathedral: Here an interesting sound phenomenon occurs: every whisper uttered to one side of the wall is transmitted in a second the other side of it, at a distance of about 33 meters.
  • London Eye: London Eye is located in the western of Jubilee gardens, on the southern bank of the river Thames, between Westminster and Hungerford bridges.
