Central London

Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square

You’ll find some of the world’s most famous attractions right here in the heart of London. Must-see sights include Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square. No visit to the capital would be complete without a trip to Buckingham Palace either, home of the British Royal Family for more than 300 years.

Central London is a culture seeker’s cloud nine, with the National Gallery, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum all located here. The Coca-Cola London Eye gives you the chance to take in sweeping views of the city; while nearby, The London Dungeon offers a gruesome insight into the capital’s history. You’ll find lots of London city hotels and there are plenty of dining opportunities to suit all budgets, from cheap bites to celebrity chef bistros and Michelin-starred restaurants for enthusiastic foodies.
