About

London, as a vivid and surprisingly compact city, is the capital of the United Kingdom. This city is well known for its cultural heritage (the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, the historic settlement of Greenwich) that`s why some people call it a world cultural capital. London is the world's most-visited city as measured by international arrivals. Furthermore, underground here is the oldest railway network in the world. But at the same time, London is crowded, that`s why there are a lot of queues. More people, more lines. Moreover, this city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day.
