Discover East London
East London has a thriving art scene, so get into it at smaller galleries and studios like the Village Underground, then head to the Whitechapel Gallery and see one of their top-rated exhibitions. For an idyllic start to your weekend, stroll through the Columbia Road Flower Market and take in all the colours of the stalls. If music is your thing, then the O2 Arena attracts some of the biggest stars in the world, and you can't take a trip to East London without looking around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. If you love discovering new trends, whether the latest trends in cooking, clothing or new styles for your home, then the only way is East.
Popular sights in this tantalising city include Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, St Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, and the waxworks of Madame Tussauds. There is also a wonderful array of galleries and museums, including the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Tate Modern and the National Portrait Gallery. And don’t forget the dozens of theatres, where world-famous actors take to the stage.
