'When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.' English poet Samuel Johnson wrote his famous ode to London in the 18th century - just imagine what he'd make of the city today.

There is, indeed, all that life can afford: proper pomp and pageantry, fun food and fashion, splendid monuments, and all the culture you can cram in. This 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 your own postcard-worthy places - in the hottest neighborhoods or coolest markets, in leafy parks or cozy 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. Feeling tired yet?
