A shot of London at night, a city full of things to do.

Places to visit in London

Visit London for royal hunting grounds, elegant Arts and Crafts-era suburbs and greenbelts of common land. There are endless places to visit in London. Get your bearings of Greater London on Westminster's huge Ferris wheel. There's more to this metropolis than meets the London Eye. Greater London's patchwork of boroughs sprawls out as far as its busy motorway ring road, the M25. Hit northern districts famed for their gritty music scene, dog-walking heaths and celebrity-run restaurants. Head south for suburbia scattered with galleries, golf courses and shopping centres. The River Thames winds west for Richmond's deer parks and east for Olympic stadiums and royal forests that once hid highwaymen.
