Whether you want to tread the footsteps of kings and queens in the royal palaces, take a break from sightseeing in one of the city's many parks, or sample the tantalizing array of street food from around the world, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that London has to offer.
Every corner of this cosmopolitan capital is brimming with personality. Dripping in pomp and tradition, Whitehall and Westminster are best known for their iconic sights and regal architecture. The rolling fields and peaceful woodlands of Hampstead Heath feel a world apart from the futuristic skyscrapers of the financial district of the City. And when the sun sets, Soho bursts into life - the perfect spot for an evening out.
