London
A Guide to
Slider

London has always enjoyed great exposure over the centuries as a cultural, political, geographical and historical magnet in Europe and the world. Home to the British Royal family, arts, science, education and music, London is a city that never sleeps and never gets boring. That’s probably why it enjoys annual visits of 30 million people, according to government figures. 

With a rich selection of restaurants, museums, galleries, bars, cafés, secret spots, entertainment venues, it makes it almost impossible to write a City Guide that is worthy for a place of this dimension and size.

And while London has overcome difficult times, its citizens have always embraced new people from all over the world and has never forgotten the bright side of the time.
