Day 1 London

Oozing history, culture, prestige, style, and everything else in between, this city should not be missed. Shop til you drop on Oxford street, stuff yourself silly with fish and chips, catch a West End show, get a glimpse of the Queen at Buckingham Palace, hear Big Ben chime at noon – the list is endless!
