Eternalized in the literature of many centuries, London is one of those places that never ceases to amaze. This glorious and foggy city is definitely worth visiting if for no other reason than for the chance to see Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge. And why not consider popping into t one of the city’s many pubs for a pint?

The most convenient way to get to the capital of the United Kingdom is to take a direct Moscow-London flight. The best money-saving option is to purchase a round-trip ticket. Flights arrive at London’s Heathrow Airport or Gatwick (flight duration: about 4 hours). Please note that the best airfares to London usually sell out quickly, so we strongly recommend booking tickets in advance.

What to see

Perhaps one of the most popular tourist attractions and most recognizable symbols of the capital of Great Britain is the Tower of London. This historic site, which has served as a zoo, an arsenal, an observatory, and even a prison, holds many secrets and stories. Don’t miss out on the chance to uncover the many mysteries of this fascinating fortress! Right near the Tower of London is the famous Tower Bridge. Be sure to take a guided tour of one of its towers.

The Palace of Westminster, London’s iconic landmark, is also worth visiting. With its incredible size – three hectares of land, a hundred flights of stairs, and a thousand-plus rooms – the Parliament building should be an oppressive structure, but its Neo-Gothic style makes it look elegant and even "light." The Palace’s famous clock tower is often called Big Ben. Its official name is Elizabeth Tower. Strictly speaking, Big Ben is the heaviest of its bells.

The majority of national museums, those operated and run by the state, have free admission. In this array of museums and galleries, you will find the Museum of London, dedicated to the history of the UK, and the National Gallery, which houses more than 2,500 works of art dating back as far as the 13th century. One of the many other interesting places to visit is the British Museum, the second most popular museum in the world after the renowned Louvre in Paris. The Science Museum showcases the latest achievements in modern technology, and the Natural History Museum has a collection of over 70 million items related to mineralogy, zoology, botany, and paleontology.

If you go to London, you definitely have to see one of its most beautiful traditions – the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. The ceremony generally lasts 45 minutes. From April to August, it is held daily; in winter, every other day.
