London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. London was first founded by the Romans in 50 AD and has been settled by two millennia, and is full of history, architecture, and lots of Fish and Chips. London is the largest financial center in the world, and is currently the most visited city in the world in terms of international arrivals. It's no secret why -- the city has so much to offer! London is home to some of the most historic and most frequently visited landmarks, including the Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, The Tower of London, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and more!

Sports Live: Fútbol is London's most popular sport (us Americans know it as soccer!) and London is home to many of the professional teams, including Arsenal, Chelsea, and West Ham United.
Our top spot is the London Eye! While the locals may see it as an overrated tourist destination, we tend to disagree. The London Eye is the famous ferris wheel, which at one time was the largest in the world. The ferris wheel offers amazing views of the entire city of London from above. While standing in a "pod" with a group of friends, you have views of the River Thames, as well as Big Ben, The Tower Bridge, and so much more! We recommend going around sunset, it is absolutely incredible. With a standard ticket for under 30 pounds, you will get to ride for 30 minutes! This is definitely a must-do activity, and we also recommend booking your tickets online in advance.
