London is the best city in the world! Though, I am biased as this is my home. But, after having visited many cities around the globe over the last few decades, London remains the one that excites me the most. It has the right balance of size, buzz, history, tradition, significant sights, mash-up of cultures, entertainment and greenery to set it aside from so many others. As the saying goes "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life"

This show covers among other topics:

  • Observations
  • History
  • General tips for visitors
  • Best time to go
  • Getting there and getting around
  • Must-do things to see and do including:
    • Buckingham Palace and Changing of the Guard
    • Tower Bridge and Tower of London
    • Houses of Parliament and London Eye. Also Aquarium. Can buy combined Eye and river trip tickets worth doing as see lots of London
    • The Shard - visit Borough Market before or after
    • Madam Tussard's
    • British Museum
    • Trafalgar Square, 10 Downing Street and Cabinet War Rooms
