In terms of cultural attractions, world-class restaurants and unusual diversions, London is a city that is unparalleled. There is no exaggeration when you say that a person can pursue a different recreational activity in the city every night of the year, but that degree of choice is surely overwhelming for a new tourist. St Paul's Cathedral standing sentry over London for many centuries, and Sir Christopher Wren’s 300-year-old masterpiece never fails, with its colossal nave and crypt, glittering Victorian mosaics and mighty dome. London’s infamous fortress, The Tower of London, retains an aura of menace, despite being dwarfed by modern skyscrapers. For over 1,000 years it has been a palace, prison, armoury, barracks, mint, menagerie and place of execution: three young Queens lost their heads here. As soon as you enter, check the Jewel House queue and pounce as soon as it looks manageable. London’s most famous bridge, the Towerbridge Walkway, has opened new glass floors in its two upper walkways, which formerly had limited views, allowing visitors to see one of the famous ‘bridge lifts’ from above. Soaring 135 metres above the River Thames, the London Eye, is a slowly rotating observation wheel and on a clear day the half-hour round trip is a memorable way to get a fine view over London. The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace takes place at 11.30am daily from May to July. As far back as anyone can remember, Londoners have taken to this hill on Hampstead Heath, NW3, to survey the changing city skyline far below. The view stretches from Westminster in the west, via the Shard to the Olympic Park in the east. Take a picnic on high days and holidays – and a kite if you’ve got one. Access is free and the nearest public transport is the London Overground at Gospel Oak or Hampstead Heath, or the Northern Line to Hampstead Underground. The best time to visit London is in the spring when the temperatures are mild and the city's parks are green and blooming.
