These iconic landmarks can provide you with a sense of the history of this great city.

Live Music

London’s music history is almost without equal and this tradition of really great musicians continues today. You can find live music concerts of all sizes happening somewhere in the city any time of the year. From huge music venues like O2 Arena or Wembley Stadium, to smaller ones like Royal Albert Hall, to pubs scattered in every corner of the city, to places where you can watch musicians perform for free like Covent Gardens or the Scoop, no matter your preference, there is always your style of music playing.

Nightlife and Pubs

The nightlife in London rivals any other top city with a vast selection of high end restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and entertainment venues strewn throughout the city and open every day until the wee hours. Whether you are interested in dancing to hip hop, techno, listening to screaming rock, or enjoying some mellow jazz, there are venues to accommodate your tastes. A truly iconic London venue is the traditional English Pub, which attracts people from all over the commonwealth and many parts of Europe. They range from ‘gastro pub’ that offers excellent dining, or an original ‘spit and sawdust’ pub where London’s locals gather after work, the common factor is great beer and mixed drinks served large and at a good price. No matter which neighborhood you find yourself there will be a great local pub for you to visit.

Dispersed all over London are Tourist Information centres that can direct you to any part of town and assist if you lost.
