The Square Mile

Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Buckingham Palace and National Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Westminster Abbey and Tower of London. Step out of London with an excursion to Imperial Bird of Prey Academy in Billericay--about 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Coca-Cola London Eye, learn about all things military at Churchill War Rooms, and admire the masterpieces at Victoria and Albert Museum.
