We loved both the London experience and visiting other parts of the UK. with all the charm and history. The British people were friendly and helpful.

London is an incredible city. The museums alone are worth the trip, but there is so much more to explore! The theater, the cathedrals, literary landmarks and vibrant neighborhoods.
