Two hours away from Paris, via the Eurostar train, is London. This is one of the most cosmopolitan and exciting cities in the world, a place full of life and surprises. The open-top bus is an ideal way to immerse yourself quickly into the atmosphere of the English capital. The tour starts at Buckingham Palace, passing through the throng of St. James’s Park onto the famous Trafalgar Square, with the statue of Nelson and the magnificent British Museum. Further along, near the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, the clock tower of Big Ben can be seen, keeping time for Britain since 1859. On the other side of the river is the London Eye which, standing at 135m (443 ft.) tall, is impossible to miss. Further down the Thames, after several smaller bridges, is the Millennium Bridge, which spans the river and links the Tate Modern and St Paul’s Cathedral. Continuing down-river, other iconic monuments come into view; the Tower of London, the medieval palace where the British Crown Jewels are safe-guarded and the famous Tower Bridge. London is also a great place to go shopping, with it being home to Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus, and not to forget Covent Garden. After all the excitement don’t forget to a break to sit down and relax while enjoying a beer in a Soho pub.
