London is a great city with the hustle and bustle of the busy central streets, the crowds rushing through the hundreds of tube stations located within a stone’s throw of where you’re standing and the amazing attractions you can discover.

As the capital city of the UK and its size, it’s often hard to discover all of the great sights you can see on top of completing a bit of shopping in the grand department store of Harrods or taking the kids to Hamleys, the great toy shop as well as treating yourself to something in either Westfield Stratford City, next to the Olympic Park or Oxford Street, home to some of the biggest names in the high street.
