    London, the largest financial centre in Europe, a metropolis of fashion and host of the best operas and theatres in Europe.

    Vibrant and cosmopolitan, London is a melting pot of cultures, which is reflected in the diversity of bars, restaurants and ethnics spread all over the city. Still, London still keeps its British essence, thanks to the traditional British pubs, the red double-decker buses, and world-famous landmarks such as the Parliament, the Tower Bridge, the London Eye and the Buckingham Palace, the official home of the British Royal Family.

    With so much to see and do, you will want to get lost in this city – but not literally. Farol City Guides will unveil the most relevant places of London, whether you’re on a business trip or backpacking.

    Houses of Parliament

    One of the centres of political life in the United Kingdom. Elizabeth Tower, often referred as ‘Big Ben’, is an iconic landmark of London, making it a must see sightseeing point.

    Tower of London

    The building holds an historical grim reputation as a place of torture and death. It has served as an armoury, treasury and menagerie. The Crown Jewels are traditionally stored here.

    Westminster Abbey

    Gothic monastery church that is the traditional place of coronation and burial for English monarchs. Located next to the Houses of Parliament, the Abbey is a must-see for any tourist visiting London.

    Buckingham Palace

    A symbol of the British Monarchy, official residence of the Royal Family and backdrop for the Changing of the Guard. Take some time to visit where the Queen lives and to photograph the Guards.

    Rules

    In the oldest restaurant in London you’ll get typical British food. Its environment may take you back to 1789, but the food remained delicious. It isn’t cheap, but you’ll have a lovely time there.

    The Golden Hind

    One typical local British dish is the fish & chips with mushy peas. Here, for a very affordable price, you can get delicious portions of this dish and of steamed seafood as well.

    The Breakfast Club

    For those fancy a good traditional Brunch, this is the place to go in London. It has a lot of good options: from the traditional English breakfast to pancakes, salads and eggs. The hardest part will be to choose.

    The Mayflower

    An ancient British pub with pub regular servings, such as burgers, British classics, and great beer. It hosts special events such as the quiz night on Tuesday. Sunday nights are particularly unique.

    London buses

    One of the iconic symbols of the city of London. Although only two of the old double-deckers are still in use, they are still famous around the world. A quick, convenient and cheap way to travel around the city.

    Operas and musicals

    Entertainment drives cultural travellers to London every year, and the best musicals and operas in Europe are probably here. Don’t lose the chance to see one of these unforgettable shows live.

    Street Markets

    They have become popular in London because of the unique and original vintage products for cheap prices, but also for the cheap yet tasteful food. A true Londoner experience.

    Changing of the Guard

    Daily at 11:30 am, a Royal tradition happens. Dressed in their traditional tunics and bearskin hats, the old guards comes off duty to be replaced by the new one on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.
