An international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics is hardly lacking in tourists attractions. Things to do in London go well beyond touring famous landmarks, such as Tower Bridge or Buckingham Palace. If you climb to the top of St. Paul's Cathedral, you will be awarded with an unforgettable panorama of the city. London's museums cater to pretty much anyone with a curious mind, whether they're into art, history, science, nature, or engineering. Its pleasurable green spaces, like Hyde Park, offer a nice break from the city commotion, while still providing plenty of family-friendly attractions.
