One of the world's oldest and largest cities, London offers both leisure and business travellers a wealth of attractions and events. History buffs could visit the British Museum, whose exhibits range from prehistoric tools to the Rosetta Stone; or do a tour of such celebrated attractions as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and London Bridge. Art enthusiasts could drop by the Tate Modern, while fans of theatre could see a play at a West End venue. One great way to imbibe the spirit of the city is to ride a shuttle on the London Underground, quaff beer at the famous French House in Soho, or shake a leg with the upbeat college crowd Corsica Studios.
