The world's most popular city destination
They say size isn’t everything – but it helps. With a population of over 8.5 million, London is nothing if not a city of diversity. The city has restaurants offering every type of cuisine imaginable, the world’s leading museums and galleries, some of the planet’s hottest nightclubs and bars, and a multitude of unique family activities. Tens of millions of visitors a year can’t be wrong.
London's most famous criminal court
A gilded statue of blind (meaning impartial) justice stands atop of Old Bailey (The Central Criminal Court). Although the current building was only completed in 1907, the site has hosted some of the most controversial trials in British history, including that of Oscar Wilde.
More recently, the Kray brothers and IRA bombers have been put in the dock here. The public is welcome to attend trials but bags, cameras, dictaphones, mobile phones and food are prohibited (and no storage facilities are provided).
