With a population of more than 8 million, London is a true cosmopolitan melting pot known for its theater, entertainment, fashion, history, pubs, museums, and markets. It’s easy to understand why London is the most-visited city in the world (Time Out Magazine, 2013), welcoming more than 16 million overseas visitors each year. What makes this English metropolis so incredible? Everything is here: Different styles, different fashions, different people, different nationalities, and different perspectives. Any life you want to lead, anything you want to be: You can find it in London.”
Find yourself in a city so rich in culture it has four World Heritage Sites. Watch street performers at Covent Garden or world-class musicians at the Royal Opera House. Buy fashion bargains at fabulous street markets or designer clothes from Harrods. Sample afternoon tea on The Strand or fish and chips in a local pub. Stroll through Hyde Park until you reach the Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and enigmatic Big Ben on the bank of the River Thames. Get lost on a rainy day along the best museums and galleries in the world. Watch Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Ralph Fiennes, or Jude Law expounding audacious Shakespeare verses at a legendary West End theater. Walk down the narrow streets of Camden or Portobello while enjoying endless flea markets. Embrace all that London has to offer and you’ll have an unforgettable experience. Explore more of England’s history and culture first hand through CEA excursions to Wales, Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Windsor, and Eton.
