London may be the capital city of England but it is also known as the capital of afternoon tea. The glorious tradition of afternoon tea may be taking off the world over but London remains the number one destination, playing host to hundreds of fabulous venues including some of the very best and most renowned in the world.
Filled to the brim with iconic landmarks and visitor attractions, London is visited by millions of people each year. St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London are just a few of London’s historical landmarks whilst more recent additions include the brilliant London Eye and Europe’s tallest edifice The Shard. London is also one of the best shopping destinations in the world, playing host to Oxford Street with its countless High Street stores, the most famous upmarket department store in the world – Harrods and an abundance of flagship stores form the world’s top fashion designers.
