London Travel guide
London : Michelin's recommendations
For London to give up its deepest secrets, it is vital to understand its constant intermingling of past and present. Always known as a lively and dynamic capital city, there has been a renewal of vitality to accompany its entry into the 21st century: the new Tate Gallery; the renovation of the Thames South Bank yet still the Changing of the Guard. Crossing the town from East to west on the Jubilee Line or going up in the London Eye and you will see that London is a town that really moves.
