One of the biggest and most visited cities in the world, London is the capital of England and a critical financial centre for the whole Europe. Multicultural, blending the most diverse languages, traditions and cultures, London is home to some of the most important monuments, museums and events in the world.
Urban and contemporary, London - whose main train station for international routes is London St Pancras, with Eurostar trains from Paris (Paris Gare du Nord) taking 2h26mins and from Brussels (Brussels Midi) as little as 2 hours - keeps also a conservative side with buildings like Buckingham Palace, the London residence of the Queen of the United Kingdom. Symbol of the city, the Big Ben is a must-see attraction located 18 minutes away by underground from the station. Very close one to another, also the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London - 25 minutes by tube from London St Pancras - are perfect spots for perfect pictures to share on your Instagram account.
Art lovers need to plan a visit to the British Museum and the Tate Modern, located right along the River Thames, for a full immersion into ancient and contemporary art. But every single visit to London must also include architecture wonders like St Paul's Cathedral and Trafalgar Square, respectively 30 and 20 minutes away from St Pancras.
