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 Natural History Museum 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: steep yourself in history at Westminster Abbey, explore the galleries of Apsley House, take a stroll through Westminster, and stop by Greenwich.

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