This year, London is calling! From the Big Ben to the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus and everything in between, London is a hub of activity. London is one of the greatest cities in the world and is rich in history and culture, not to mention a shopper’s paradise. If you haven’t yet managed to touch down in this thriving city, it’s time to make 2017 your year. Here are reasons for visiting London:
Top Attractions are Calling
The Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, The Coca-Cola London Eye, The Tower of London, Madame Tussauds, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square – all of them located in London and none of them needing any introduction.
World Class Cuisine is Calling
Despite popular belief, London serves up some excellent cuisine, many of which won’t be found anywhere else in the world. The city is home to some of the most prestigious restaurants in the world, including Michelin-starred restaurants. If you feel like keeping this a bit low-key, London hosts plenty of traditional restaurants and pubs to please the masses. You can also find plenty of cheap eats in London if you’re on a budget.
Excellent Shopping is Calling
Shoppers will be spoilt for choice in London. Here you will find the flagship stores on Oxford Street, as well as boutiques, designer stores, markets, and the iconic Harrods department store.
Casinos are Calling
While the attractions, shopping, and cuisine are all obvious reasons to visit this city, one lesser-known benefit is that London is home to some of the most renowned casinos in the world. In addition to a range of casinos that are open to the public, London also hosts some exclusive establishments such as The Clermont Club that have a stricter policy about who’s allowed to gamble. Whether you are an average Joe looking for an entertaining space at which to bet, or a VIP who expects a more exclusive experience, you will find a casino to suit your needs in London.
The Royals are Calling
Visit London, and you will have a good chance to seeing members of the Royal Family. Royal watching is a popular pastime for many London residents, and seeing Kate and Will is like spotting the English version of a Hollywood couple. Many of the Royals live in London for most of the year, so chances of seeing them out and about are great. Get ready to snap some pictures or simply gawk as you spot your favourite Royal in London.
