Must See London Attractions
London, thou art the flower of cities all! This quote from the poem, simply titled 'London' was written by an unknown fifteenth-century poet whose sentiment has survived in the hearts of many across half a millennium. London means different things to different people: a thriving business community, the theatre capital of Europe, an artistic Utopia, a bustling market place, a fantastic shopping centre, an architectural tapestry, an open history book and home to millions of people who love the cultural cornucopia. London is all of these things and within the space of a short 'tube' train journey some of England's most beautiful parkland invites the city-weary traveller to muse among the greenery, once enjoyed by the late great poets.
