When planning a trip to England, experience the city of London is a must. If you have flexibility in when you can visit London, the weather is deemed to be the most pleasant in September and October. During these couple months, all that is required in the evening may be a light jacket. It is also helpful to be aware that weather permitting, London is compact enough to get around on foot. There are many London attractions that are worth visiting while you visit the area.

The British observe several variations from American culture. These are things that tourists must be aware of before visiting the city. Most known is the idea of the British driving on the opposite side of the road than Americans. Other cultural variations include conversational differences. In America, it is commonplace to directly ask what someone does for a living. This is considered rude in London. The accepted behaviour is to engage in small talk, leading one to reveal their line of work naturally. Something else to keep in mind is that of etiquette variations. Meals are regarded as two handed affairs in London, which is different from how Americans are used to eating.

There are many London attraction to see during your trip. Probably the most known of these London attractions is the Tower of London. Construction of the Tower of London commenced in 1078, going through several phases until its expansion during the years of 1377-1399. The Tower of London has been used as a treasury, an armoury, a public records office, home of the Royal Mint, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England. The Tower of London has also used a prison, with its peak use during the 16th and 17th centuries. During the World Wars of the 20th century, the Tower of London was used again as a prison.

Another london attractions is the London Eye. The London Eye is an enormous Ferris wheel located on the bank of the river Thames. It has been known by a variety of names, including the Millennium Wheel. This would be because the first test run, without passengers, was on New Year’s Eve of 1999. Since its opening to the general public in the March of 2000, it has become known as one of the most recognised London attractions.

Yet another London attraction is the Tower Bridge of London. The Tower Bridge opened in 1894, crossing the River Thames in close proximity to the Tower of London. As is evidenced by its name, the Bridge consists of two towers whose walkways are accessible after paying an admission charge. Underneath these walkways, the bridge deck is freely accessible to both pedestrians and vehicles.
