London — 3 nights

The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Here are some ideas for day two: explore the world behind art at The British Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Paul's Cathedral, then admire the striking features of Tower of London, and finally don't miss a visit to Big Ben.
