Travel to London and revel in the historic capital’s many attractions
You will be spoilt for choice upon your arrival in London. Whether you like castles, museums, opera or cutting-edge architecture, London has it all. No trip is complete without a visit to the South Bank, where you can stroll along the Thames from the historic centre of government at the Houses of Parliament – not forgetting to listen out for the chimes of the majestic clock Big Ben – to historic Tower Bridge. Along the way stop for a ride on the giant London Eye ferris wheel, visit the Tate Modern Art Museum, housed in a former power station, or descend below the streets of the ancient city in the London Dungeons. A stone’s throw away, on the north side of the Thames, visit Buckingham Palace or the Tower of London and observe the historic changing of the guards. Don’t waste your time trying to make the guard’s smile for a photo, however, they aren’t allowed!
Travel from Riyadh to London
After soaking in the many historic sites, change gears and visit London’s ultra-modern world finance and business capital, located between the City of London and Canary Wharf. At Canary Wharf be amazed by the impressive Shard, the city’s tallest building, and One Canada Square, the second tallest. In fact, despite its many historic buildings, London boasts the most skyscrapers in Europe! To take in these sights, take a ride on the driverless Docklands Light Railway and watch some of the globe’s most important traders and finance people do business in style. Continue along the train line to the quiet neighbouring city of Greenwich, and take the opportunity to visit the Greenwich meridian, where you can set your wristwatch to the official world time, and straddle east and west longitude. All this is sure to make you hungry, so after returning from Greenwich on a Thames river boat, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy some of London’s world famous international cuisine, whether in Chinatown near Leicester Square, or the world-famous Indian and Pakistani culinary capital of Brick Lane, in the east end of the city.
