London Obviously a trip to the UK isnt complete without a trip to London, the UKs capital and home to; Tower of London (; St Pauls Catherdral ; Windsor Castle ; Royal Albert Hall, tower bridge exhibition(http://www.towerbridge.org.uk/TowerBridge/English), the Tate Modern and so much more its impossible to list. There are a number of great areas to visit including soho, camden, notting hill. London is a year-round tourist centre, with few of its attractions closing or significantly reducing their opening hours in winter.

One can buy passes to visit a number of these sights for a reduced price because a lot of sight seeing can be extremely costly. http://www.londonpass.com/index_attractions.asp
