London, the capital of the United Kingdom, is located in the south-east of the country. Undoubtedly, it is not only one of the most famous cities in the world, but also known as the most dynamic city. Being a fairly old city, London is essentially made up of two old cities, London and Westminster. The City of London, the oldest part of London, was founded by the Romans as a settlement in 43 BC. With an area of approximately 1,572 square kilometers, the cosmopolitan city of London has a population of more than 9 million. The population distribution of the city, where almost half of the population has an average age of 35, can therefore be considered young.
With a habit inherited from the Romans, it is an international trade center for hundreds of years, maintaining this feature today and embracing new technology and science. The inhabitants of the city, which does not have a single culture, consist of people of various nationalities, religions and cultures speaking 300 different languages. For example, excluding the English of the London natives, different languages such as nearly 50,000 Turkish, more than 12,000 Arabic, and more than 20,000 Hindi are spoken.
In the city, which is famous for its quite old and magnificent buildings, the famous Trafalgar Square is one of the places to visit. Apart from this, there are the Palace of Westminster, the London Eye, the largest Ferris wheel in Europe, Buckingham Palace, the city's apple of the eye, the magnificent Tower of London, Tower Bridge over the River Thames, exclusive Art Galleries and the Big Ben Clock Tower, which is considered one of the largest in the world. The Natural History Museum of London, which sheds light on history and culture, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, which houses the world's largest decorative arts, and the National Gallery, which has a large collection, are just a few of the impressive museums in the city.
Each street of London, which has inspired other cities since ancient times, opens up to a different dream. The city, where it is almost impossible to get bored, awaits its visitors with its nightlife, squares, cathedrals, castles and, of course, countless English Bars.

While you are in London, without having the famous English breakfast, drinking traditional English tea like a noble Englishman, tasting England's iconic snack Fish and Chips, eating delicious English tarts and Sunday Roast, which is the best choice for Sundays, drinking refreshing English beer.
