London, England

London, England

When most tourists think of England or the United Kingdom, London is usually at the top of mind (and perhaps, the Royal Family).

Being one of the world’s largest cities, and a major draw of tourists, London has much to offer to visitors and citizens.  There’s much more that lurks behind (and beside) the tourist attractions in this great city.

For clarification, this post includes Greater London (e.g., Westminster) and City London.
