Step back in time
London’s varied history has seen it survive a number of tumultuous events over the course of centuries of habitation and each one has left its mark on the rich heritage available for visitors to enjoy. Some attractions show the darker side of our nation’s past, such as the Tower of London where prisoners could expect to see out their days surrounded by the opulence of one of the grandest palaces, or the London Dungeon where torture was a way of life and people rarely left alive. However, it’s not all doom and gloom and there are plenty of more uplifting attractions such as the many art galleries where you can see works of art which are famous around the world and a number of museums with exhibits to appeal to anyone’s interests.
