Tourism in London

Tourists from all over the world flock to London, and it's common to walk down the street without hearing the same language spoken twice. It's rainy quite frequently in London, but a strong subway system known as the Underground and stellar sites like Trafalgar Square and Big Ben keep tourists flowing through the streets without complaint. For a tour of proper pomp and circumstance, Buckingham Palace is sure to please.

Walking. You get to take everything in on your own time. There is so much history here. Also, the tube is excellent.
