Filled to the brim with iconic landmarks and visitor attractions, the city 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. Home to 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.
