Greater London

Though known as probably the most famous city in the world, most people don't realize that Greater London is actually classed as a county, and includes the City of London, the City of Westminster and the 32 surrounding London Boroughs.

It takes in a large number of villages, towns and open countryside and borders the home counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Kent in the south east, as well as Essex and Hertfordshire in the East. It has more history within its boundaries than many entire countries around the world, stretching back more than 2000 years, and is Britain's most visited area.

For history there are so many highlights but the most famous include Parliament and Parliament Square, as well as Big Ben, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral, as well as miles and miles of incredible Victorian architecture and Georgian Squares and thousands of smaller gems like the John Soames Museum or the Old Operating Theatre Museum. For modern architecture have a look at 30 St Mary Axe, better known as 'the Gherkin', London's most famous skyscraper, or the new pedestrian bridge on the South Bank.

There are few better cities for museums and some of the highlights include the British Museum, the Imperial War Museum, the V & A, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum as well as hundreds of smaller ones like the Cartoon or Sherlock Holmes museums. Similarly there are thousands of art galleries to see, including the famous Tate and Tate Modern Galleries, the National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery as well as the Royal Academy.

Should you find yourself needing to stroll in some wide open spaces London has plenty, from the world famous Kew Botanic Gardens to Chelsea Physic Garden and from Hyde Park to Hampstead Heath. Lastly of course there is the entertainment itself, from the numerous sporting stadia, to thousands of incredible restaurants (London has more Michelin stars than Paris) or the world famous nightlife. England's most exciting city.
