‘When you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life,’ said the writer Samuel Johnson in 1777. Today, almost 250 years later, that’s still the case. From the world’s best museums and galleries to miles of parks and open spaces. From Michelin starred restaurants to pop-ups, world-class sporting venues to quiet canalside walks. London has it all. So read on as we guide you through the best places to visit for food, entertainment, shopping, sport, study and more.
