Walking the streets of London, you'll find history and tradition around every corner. Truly one of the world's greatest cities, London can be found on every 'must-see' list, but often, due to time constraints, visitors to this great city miss out on seeing all of the action - until now. Rediscover historic landmarks, travel through delightful parks, experience exquisite art galleries, classic theaters and trendy shops. Then when you need a break from all the action, kick back, relax and enjoy a meal in one of London's many local pubs, bars and restaurants. London in 7 Days offers up seven action-packed days worth of exploring and experiencing all that London has to offer.
