The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
National Gallery and Apsley House are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Imperial Bird of Prey Academy and Speed Boats Tours. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Natural History Museum, don't miss a visit to Buckingham Palace, take a stroll through Westminster, and stop by Greenwich.

Plan my London trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
