    All of these attractions are the most famous attractions in London. London is one my favorite travel destination. I visited there last month before my http://www.getbustours.com/new-york-departures/. The Tower of London and British Museum are my favorite places there. All of these links really helpful for those who want to go there. I will go there again within a two weeks with my family.
