London turns history on its head. Incomparable, this is a global city, blending big business with regal pomp, refined museums with a gritty music scene. Busy, commercial districts sit streets away from a ticking tower, a royal church and historic theatres. London is dizzying. Catch your breath in the many leafy parks or cozy pubs, while grappling with an impressive and eclectic past and present.
