  • (1888PressRelease) March 15, 2016 - Open your eyes to a different culture amongst kings and queens and fanfaire. There is no shortage of tourist staples: Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Marble Arch, Big Ben, the iconic red double-decker bus. But London's appeal doesn't lie only in its architectural and cultural treasures. This is also the best people-watching city in the world. Its 7.5 million residents are deliriously motley, speaking more than 300 languages among them. Here is a great guide of some places that just can't be missed when visiting London.
    Tate Modern: this gallery devoted to modern art effortlessly pulls in the punters and locals as well as the tourists, and ranks among London's most-visited attractions. Part of its appeal is the building itself, fashioned by architects Herzog and De Meuron from a vast disused power station on the Thames's south bank. In addition to blockbuster exhibits and live events, the gallery invites a prominent artist every year to transform its cavernous turbine hall.

    The London Eye: Yes, it's a giant ferris wheel, and, yes, it's for tourists - but it's a worth a spin. Once you've boarded your glass-sided capsule - each capsule holds 25 people - it will be a half-hour before you get back down. From the top of the 443-foot wheel you'll be rewarded with gloriously unimpeded views over London. At night, take one of the special "champagne flights," and you'll find yourself in one of the capital's best bars.

    Kensington Gardens: Londoners of a certain age will tell you that Germans shaped their city. In 1728, Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach, the German-born wife of King George II, commissioned works to the southern swath of Hyde Park - later designated Kensington Gardens - creating the Serpentine, an artificial lake, and landscaping the surrounding lawns and walkways. (These ornamental waters will take you 40 minutes, and you can swim at the Serpentine Lido from May to September.) Queen Caroline lived in Kensington Palace, on the western edge of the park, which has been home to assorted members of the extended royal family and household, but will, of course, forever be associated with its most iconic resident, Princess Diana. Kensington Gardens is studded with shrines to the late Princess, including a fountain dedicated to her memory by the Queen in 2004.

    J. Sheekey: If you like your dinner with a side order of celebrity, head to one of Caprice Holdings' restaurants: Le Caprice, a sleek art deco brasserie just behind the Ritz hotel, the Ivy or J. Sheekey; the latter two are in London's theater land. Their clientele rosters read like the guest list for a charity gala thrown by Bono and Angelina Jolie. Popular for serving simple seafood and game dishes, perfectly executed and perfectly served. The most intimate of the bunch is J. Sheekey, a fish restaurant with leather banquettes, paneled walls and an impressive art collection.
