A few weeks ago I was able to visit one of my favourite European capitals, London. Its charm is timeless due to its unique atmosphere, the style of its palaces and the quantity of its historical monuments always crowded by many tourists.
This great city has two souls inside itself: the ancient one with all the monuments and historical buildings made of stone and the other one, modern and high-tech, in which high steel skyscrapers emerge between older buildings slowly changing the metropolitan skyline.
Because of the large amount of places of interest in the city and the limited amount of time I had to spend in my stay, I have drawn up a list of what I think every tourist should visit. My long day began with the city's most famous monument, the Houses of Parliament, current residence of the British Parliament, and the Big Ben Tower. Nearby you can also visit Westminster Abbey and, with a short walk, Buckingham Palace. After a quick lunch at Hyde Park, one of London's nine royal parks, I take the underground to continue my tour visiting in order: Covent Garden market, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge.
The following day, after a rich English breakfast, I decide to resume my tour from Camden Town, a very characteristic place known for its shops and murals and make a short visit to the British Museum before taking my suitcase back home.
Below are some of the shots taken in this short but intense London weekend.
