"London - I went there to see the Queen" London by SLLiew

London Travel Guide: 23,495 reviews and 49,601 photos



Have been to London several times but saw the Queen only once - in her royal carriage leaving Buckingham Palace. Her Majesty is one of my most admired royals as I have collected many Bristish Commonwealth stamps with her portraits.



London seems familiar as an English speaking capital. A very tourist-friendly city though the pound is strong. I remember the cost of a pound for a bar of chocolate and at that time the exchange rate was six Malaysian rinngit.



London is a natural stopover from Malaysia to New York - whether at Gatwick or Heathrow airport. It is always fun to visit London for a day or two to see another museum or a West End musical.

    London is such a historical and big city, probably need to spend a few days there just to see all the attractions :)

    Very nice page, and I agree with your "must see's". London is one of my favorite big cities in the world, but I also love the English countryside. Love English Literature too!

    When I lived in London in the end of the 80s it was cheaper. I got three bars of chocolate for the same price as one in Sweden (instead of saving money I ate three).
