London is a wonderful city! Everywhere we went was interesting. Walk about your first day in the city and you'll see so much. I can't wait to go back. Christmas time was magical with all the different lights in every neighborhood.

The architecture is impressive, but it can only be so appreciated when there is a significant amount of traffic flowing through it at any given time. It's close to a lot of other things, so it's a nice landmark to take in while you're on...More

This is like the front gate in visiting the queen. Admiralty is a most impressive building in its own right but also the start of going down the mall.

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
