LONDON SIGHTSEEING DIVERSITY London is a city at the centre of the world – and a world in one city. Around 230 languages are spoken here and you’ll find a wealth of different cultures and communities throughout the capital. HISTORY London’s history stretches back over thousands of years, and the city boasts four World Heritage Sites: the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Maritime Greenwich and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. PLACES OF INTEREST London’s world-class tourist attractions are renowned across the globe. Many of the most famous attractions are free to visit, for example Tate Modern, the National Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum. RIVER THAMES The river Thames runs through the heart of London, from Richmond in the west, through the central London borough of Westminster, to Greenwich in the east. London river cruises and river buses are a great way to see the city.

OUTDOOR SPACES About one third of London is devoted to parks and open spaces, so there are plenty of places to relax on fine days. Make sure you visit The Royal Parks as well as Hampstead Heath in North London, which offers amazing views over the city.
