Traveling To London For The First Time - Tourists Tips
The underground, called the Tube in the UK, has a station conveniently close to all the major attractions in London and runs past midnight for all the late-night revelers. The Tube also runs between central London and Heathrow airport, the busiest airport in Britain. Most Tube lines connect at Victoria Station, the largest railroad station in London where travelers can connect with trains going anywhere in the UK, including Gatwick airport south of the city which has many international flights.
The changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace is a tradition going back hundreds of years, and attracts many visitors every day. The Marble Arch, Tower of London, Piccadilly Circus near the famous Ritz hotel, and the British Museum are other must-see historic sites. A recent addition is the London Eye, this largest ferris wheel in the world provides a panoramic view of several miles from the top. Another must see is the Tate Modern with an international collection of modern art.
From the docks behind the Tate Gallery, there are several Thames river cruises leaving for the Tate Britain which holds the national collection of British art dating back to 1500, to the Tower of London, to check the time at Greenwich, to Canary Wharf and other destinations. Thames lunch and dinner cruises plus showboat tours are available, making for a delightful day along the river. There are international flights from every corner of the globe to London that make it easy for anyone to enjoy a visit to this fabulous city, and bargain fares can be found on discount airlines.
