Historical Landmarks || World-Class Museums || Quiet Parks to Relax
From its beginnings back in the 1st century AD London has grown into a world-class multicultural, historical, and dynamic city.
Here you’ll find Roman walls, Norman towers, Tudor palaces, and the grandeur and splendour of the Georgian and Victorian periods, along with modern additions such as the Shard and London Eye. There is a huge array of world-class museums and galleries, beautiful parks, modern shops, award-winning theatre productions, and even four UNESCO World Heritage sites! There really is something for everyone.
With so much variety it can be hard for visitors to even know where to start. Whether you are looking for events that showcase London’s pomp and ceremony, a visit that incorporates your love of the Royal family, or just some quiet lanes and parks to relax – I hope my London Love series will be able to help you.
By clicking on the images below you’ll be taken to posts about each of the sights, attractions, and some itineraries to tie them all together. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about London and we’d be happy to help. We hope you enjoy your visit to London!

One place people ask me for recommendations for over and over again is London. They know I've been several times and they know I LOVE sharing all the neat things there are to see and do. Since most people that ask are visiting for their first time I like to start them...read more
One day in London barely scratches the surface to see all the wonderful things this city has to offer but that might be all the time you have. Perhaps you’re on a business trip and only have one day before you have to fly back home. Or you’re on a tour of...read more
GUIDES TO VISITING LONDON’S ATTRACTIONS

To really do a visit to Hampton Court Palace justice I think it is worth a few minutes to learn about some of its past inhabitants, especially the most famous (infamous?) one of all- King Henry VIII. He started off by marrying his brother's wife,Catherine of Aragon,...read more
At the behest of King Charles II in 1675, the Royal Observatory was built to further studies in astronomy and navigation. Or as King Charles himself put it "The most exact care and diligence to rectifying the tables of the Motions of the Heavens, and the Places of the...read more

Launched in March 1938, the HMS Belfast saw active duty during World War II by playing a part in destroying the German battle cruiser Scharnhorst at the Battle of North Cape and in the Normandy landings. It also served the Royal Navy in Korea and was used in...read more
