London in 4 days
Once in the capital of Great Britain, travelers find themselves in a city with a rich cultural tradition, an abundance of architectural masterpieces and many museums. How to have time to see the whole of London in 4 days and not miss anything interesting at the same time?
Cathedrals and castles
The main architectural sights of the English capital are located in the central part of the city. It was from here that London began, and the inhabitants themselves consider St. Paul's Cathedral to be its heart. The largest in the country, second in size only to St. Peter's in Rome, London Cathedral provides guests with a unique opportunity - to climb its dome and the Golden Gallery. More than 500 steps are overcome in one go, and patient visitors reward with magnificent views of the capital and its environs.
The Tower is another architectural masterpiece with a rich history. For centuries it served as a prison for famous prisoners, and today the beefeaters are the keepers of traditions here. Their uniforms attract the attention of tourists who prefer to arrange photo shoots with the Tower guards. In the program of visiting London in 4 days, you should definitely include a walk along the fortress walls and a visit to the Windsor Treasury, where the relics of the royal house are carefully kept.
Millennium Bridge and London Eye
It is best to take a stroll across the Millennium Bridge in the evening. When night falls on the capital of Great Britain, the bridge is illuminated with multi-colored lights, and the wonderful panoramic view from the water of St. Paul's Cathedral becomes the property of photo artists..
Another modern but very popular structure is the London Eye. From a height of more than 45 floors, the city is visible at a glance, and completely closed and air-conditioned cabins allow even those who are openly afraid of heights to feel comfortable. Buying a ticket for the Ferris wheel, you can take a pass for several attractions at once, significantly saving money in expensive London.
And all the king's men
The changing of the royal guard near Buckingham Palace these days, of course, already carries a purely entertainment value. Nevertheless, hundreds and thousands of tourists come to look at this colorful action every day. Once in London for 4 days, you can carve out a couple of hours and enjoy the spectacle. Famous guardsmen hats, a brass band playing popular music, and tourists in plaid blankets floating out of the London fog in anticipation of the start of the action create a special unique flavor.
