London 2012, UK
24 images Created 22 Jun 2012
London stands proud as being one of the world’s most visited cities, and has something different for everyone, from history to culture, art, grand museums, dazzling architecture, royalty, diversity and irrepressible pizazz. London’s buildings are eye-catching milestones in the city’s unique and compelling biography. There’s more than enough funky innovation (the Shard, the Aquatics Centre, the London Eye, the Gherkin) to put a crackle in the air, but it never drowns out London’s well-preserved, centuries-old narrative. Architectural grandeur rises up all around you in the West End, ancient remains dot the City and charming pubs punctuate the Thames riverside - with London's South Bank area being one of the cities hotspots.
