The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Fri): take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Cathedral, make a trip to Coca-Cola London Eye, contemplate the long history of Buckingham Palace, then get a sense of history and politics at Houses of Parliament, and finally don't miss a visit to Big Ben. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the spiritual surroundings of Westminster Abbey, walk around St. James's Park, then take in panoramic vistas at Tower Bridge, and finally admire the striking features of Tower of London.
