About London

Welcome to London

You'll discover our city offers plenty to see and do. The Tourism London website will help you become familiar with London and what it offers. We're big enough to have everything you need - dining, culture, entertainment, shopping and sports - but with the added plus of a friendly ambience that is reminiscent of smaller communities. The buzz of London as a personal travel destination is ever growing, particularly, with our being the host venue for prestigious national and international sport and entertainment events. Our calendar of festivals is year round, though summer is definitely the high season with special celebrations happening almost every weekend.

Actively inclined? Strap on skates, cycle, run or walk along our scenic pathway system that borders the banks of the Thames River. As a golfer, you'll be spoilt for choice - there are more than 70 courses in London and its surrounding areas. From water to racquet sports there are recreational facilities to meet your interests. Should you want a tranquil break, the Forest City lives up to its name. We have lots of parks and green spaces in the downtown core, as well as preserved natural areas, such as meadows and woodlands, in residential neighbourhoods.
