'When a man is tired of London,' wrote the English poet Samuel Johnson, 'he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.' Johnson wrote his ode to London in the 18th century - just imagine what he'd make of the city today!
London does, indeed, contain all that life can afford: proper pomp and pageantry, food and fashion, splendid monuments, and all the culture you can cram in. The city hums with history, and its landmarks are the stuff of legend: Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Wimbledon, Hyde Park and Harrods.
It's easy to hunt down postcard-worthy places - wander through the hottest neighborhoods, the coolest markets, leafy parks and peaceful pubs. Explore some of the world's finest museums, boutiques, theaters and nightlife. Take in a show, see a football game, down a pint of lager.
