London, home to St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, the British Museum, Trafalgar square, The Tower of London, and a slue of other attractions; both old and new. Very much an international city, visitors flack to see London theater, browse at Covent Gardens and take a stroll along the Themes.

London is big, but fortunately for the traveler, almost all the major sights of interest are with in reasonable reach. I am not recommending anyone try to walk to all the sights but if you select an accommodation near one of the London sights listed on the left, you can easily use the Metro (Underground) to see all the other sights in the list.

I was last in London in 1992, being from the USA midwest, I was impressed by the internationalism of the city, people and business from all over the world seem to be represented. While I have noticed my home state growing in diversity over the past 14 years, I was still surprise how even more international London is today than it was on my last visit. Traveling the metro and streets of London, you may need to listen carefully to hear an English accent among the crowd.

Large cities tend to be more expensive for the visitor than villages and London is no exception. No longer the most expensive city in the world to live in; St. Petersburg now holds that title. Some visitors might still raise an eyebrow at the cost of things in London, on the reasonable but low end, a couple can spend 30 pounds for a dinner, and 100 pounds for a relatively inexpensive hotel. Of course, at the luxury end of the scale, the sky is the limit.
