New & Notable London Attractions
Hot, new London attractions & notable things you should do this month.
The Imperial War Museum is one of the best museums in London. Its decade-long revamp started in 2013, when the museum was closed for the first six months of that year, reopening with a rollicking exhibition about spies in July 2013 and stepping up a gear in time for summer 2014 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War. Apart from real tanks to climb upon, the museum does great social history of war, too. Read more »All New & Notable London Attractions »
The Science Museum is a great attraction in London, with a myriad of permanent and temporary exhibitions: they're constantly evolving. You can buy a ticket to relive the miracle of science in the form of the Large Hadron Collider exhibition. This exhibit presents something of what went on in CERN, where the so-called "God particle" was verified and black holes were created. Read more »All New & Notable London Attractions »

About London, England Attractions
It's not for nothing that London is the most visited city in the world. Things to see, history, and contemporary design abound, and everything is interspersed with beautiful green parks, and of course the long lazy river Thames. If you feel like being educated, pop into one of hundreds of museums, art galleries and visitor's centres. Feeling a bit more sporty ? Hire a bike and take a tour along the river or on one of London's many new cycle lanes, through parks and gardens, from the centre of town, right out to the Olympic site and beyond. Need refreshment, then stop off at one of the many food stalls, cafes, restaurants and bars which have popped up all over the place, most in the summer with seating outside too. And of course, you can't miss the big sites, like Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London. And after you've seen the Crown Jewels, you can crown your day off with a trip on the London Eye, the big wheel which allows you to spot a new destination for the next day too. You can jump on tourist buses, or just get a bus map and take your chance with the frequent and efficient red london buses, to cover a bit more distance in a day. But don't forget to get off and walk round some of London's historic neighbourhoods or take a walking tour with an experienced guide, to get the lowdown on the history and culture that trod the pavements before you.
