Why We Love London | Central London

It doesn’t get more quintessentially British than central London – Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament - iconic buildings that define London are around every corner. The city is always buzzing, packed with excited tourists taking in the sights and sounds of London, and the rich sense of history and culture that defines the area.
