London — No city in the world is quite like London. At once historic and cutting edge, stately and scandalous, hoity-toity and low-brow, gritty and manicured, the teeming British capital has such a complex (some might say split) personality that it almost defies description. Buttoned-up charm and regal history mingle easily with modern verve in this sprawling metropolis, home to world-class theater, wildly diverse cuisine, and a very large clock tower.

Why Go

For the burgeoning art scene, riveting museums, historic sights, and a culture like nowhere else in Europe.
