Prime Minister David Cameron

When you are tired of London, you are tired of life, said the 18th century writer, Samuel Johnson. With so much to see and do in our capital – from sport to shopping, art to architecture – those words remain just as true today.

For those who like to wander, there is more green space in London than any other European city. For those who love to eat and drink, there are the stalls of Borough Market, the pop-ups of Shoreditch, the scores of Michelin-starred restaurants dotted around the capital. And for those who want to learn, there are streets packed full of history – from Westminster Abbey to the Cutty Sark, from the Churchill War Rooms to the Tower of London.

See London from above, at the top of the Shard or on the London Eye. See it from the Thames, on a river cruise. See it on stage, at the West End; or in bloom, at Kew. You will always see something new. And you can see the rest of the UK from London, as well. Flying to Belfast for the Titanic attraction, driving to Cardiff for the Millennium Stadium, catching the train to Edinburgh for the world’s largest arts festival – all these adventures are easy when you start or end up in London.

London prides itself on its warm welcome. We showed that to great effect during the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. And we will show it again during your stay. So welcome to London. Welcome to Britain. I hope you make the most of just how much this great city and country have to offer.
