Europe is an International leader in tourism with 710 million tourist arrival every year.
This is because most of the European countries are bordered by the Mediterranean Sea with a
combination of beaches, sunshine, scenery, and historical monuments. Some of the most visited
countries include Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, and France. Europe is comprised of over 800
cities, with London as the biggest of all. London is the capital city of the United Kingdom.
the history of london
London is one of the most important cities in the world and has a rich history. Its inhabitants
were hunters and gatherers during its birthing 6,000 B.C. Despite facing a number of attacks
from raiders in the 1600s, London managed to grow in population (Bukejs et al 780). The
Londoners then lived in wooden structures which went down to ashes during the famous Great
Fire of London inferno. However, in the 1880s things started becoming better. In no time, World
War II broke in the 1900s which got heroic women crowned for their impeccable fighting skills.
After all was said and done, London got rebuilt and grew so fast in population, infrastructure and
economically. There is an outstanding transformation to date.
The culture of London can be summarized into four; music, lifestyle, museums, and festivals.
Night outs are part of life. Many get to enjoy good music as they unwind from their day to day
activities. It is also known as a trading, and technological centre attracting millions of foreign
investments. It is renowned as a home for cultural attractions such as the National Gallery, and
the British Museum (Chan 166). More than a third of Londoners are foreign-born; that equates to
300 languages and 270 nationalities which cause diversification of cultures. Despite being a
westernized city, the Londoners have embraced cultural events that boost the nation’s growth
and improve people’s living standards through tourism activities.
London is one of the main tourist attraction centres in the world. The Nation Maritime Museum,
Museum of London, Science Museum, Shrek’s Adventure, Barbican Conservatory, Sea Life
Aquarium, Madame Tussauds, London Dungeon, and The Slide at ArcelorMittal Orbit are just to
mentioned but a few of London’s top attraction centres. There is also a line-up of annual special
events convenient for both children and adults (Başarangil 2). A number of beautiful places for
wildlife experiences in London include The Regent’s Park, Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park,
Sydenham Hill and WWT London Wetland Centre comprising of different species of animals,
among them the red deer which is the most common of them all.
When it comes to the climatic condition, London experiences the four seasons with summer and
winter being the longest. Summers are short, comfortable, and partly cloudy. Winters on the
other hand are long, windy, very cold, and mostly cloudy. Spring and autumn are the best to visit
London (Cosgrove et al 2638). Spring runs from March through April while autumn is from
September through November. The best time for warm activities, however, is from late June to
early September. This makes London favourable in terms of tourism.
The rich history of London, the diversified culture, the beautiful sceneries, and the
tourist-favourable climatic conditions make London one of the most adventurous places in the
world to visit. I would recommend any tourist to experience the beauty of London.
