The world's most popular city destination

They say size isn’t everything – but it helps. With a population of over 7.5 million, London is nothing if not a city of diversity. It has restaurants offering every type of cuisine imaginable, museums and galleries that are the envy of cities the world over, some of the most happening nightclubs and bars on the planet, and so much excitement to entertain the kids, you’ll be jealous. Over 25million visitors a year can’t be wrong.
