About London 

London is the capital city of the England and the United Kingdom.

Home to the Royal Family, the capital city attracts up to 15 million tourists every year. The capital boasts many visitor attractions including Madame Tussaud's waxworks museum, the Victoria and Albert museum, Buckingham Palace, the Albert Hall and the many theatres presenting the very latest performances in the West End, the Strand and Leicester Square.
