London has much to offer visitors. Catch a glimpse of this beautiful city from the top of the London Eye, enjoy the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, or enjoy a basket of fish and chips or a fried pie at one of the many local pub houses before heading across town to:

  • Westminster Abbey
  • the Parliament building
  • the impressive tower housing Big Ben

After enjoying all London has to offer use the Channel or, for those a bit hesitant to drive under the channel, the ferry system is another option.
