London makes its case as the capital
of Europe on many levels. Certainly its ability to overwhelm you
with the intensity of it's urban sprawl is impressive. There is
always a host of new attractions waiting to be explored. Begin with
a copy of a good street map which includes the extensive underground
transit system. Central London is a good place to get the bearings
you need to enjoy London as the great walking City it truly is.
Don't miss some of the ever-popular landmarks, in between you might do a few of the many museums. London is famous for its great variety of shopping from the grandeur Harrods in Knightsbridge to the handmade crafts at Covent Garden. Soon the London nightlife will buzz with excitement. Live theatre is a must but there is so much more to choose from as well. A good way to decide is to sit a spell in a pub and soak up your pint amidst the friendly atmosphere while you appreciate the unique London lifestyle.

Where to Stay
Where to Eat
It wasn't so long ago that Britain was derided for the state of its cuisine but that has given way to a world class reputation for fine dining. New restaurants open with increasing regularity, and the 12,000 plus establishments offer a wide range of cuisine unequaled anywhere in Europe. This extraordinary renaissance led by an increasingly sophisticated palate of the middle class has raised soy, salsa and sauces to equal standing with mustard, gravy and mint sauce. British chefs now believe it is the French and Italian who need to learn from them.

One of the best cases for formation of City government in London is the antiquated liquor licensing laws which require drinking establishments to close at 11pm. truly an embarrassing state of affairs for a global city. A commission to study the dissatisfaction has been formed but has no sense of urgency to it. So keep your preferred night cap in your room unless you have a friend with membership in the many private clubs.
