London see + do
London is packed to the gills with world-class museums, a thriving arts and cultural scene, and neighborhoods that include the hip post-industrial vibe of Shoreditch in the east, the genteel central district of Mayfair, and the tourist magnets that are Soho and Covent Garden. Don't let London's vastness overwhelm you: If you're in need of respite, head for one of the city's 3,000 parks and open spaces, where you can listen to the highly opinionated orators at Speakers' Corner (Hyde Park), catch some open-air theater (Regent's Park), or bike through rolling countryside past prancing deer (Richmond Park). And make sure you spend some time along the South Bank of the Thames, which is lined with fantastic theaters (Southbank Centre) and museums (the Tate Modern).
