They were great and let us use their WiFi to book a hotel last minute. They even let us use their phone as a contact number because we couldn't use ours. Wonderful!

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

Hi! We have a 3-day pre-cruise stay in London next month. We've never been, so would like suggestions on the main tourist attractions to visit. We are staying at a Holiday Inn close to Kensington Gardens. Should we book tours to save time? Please advise and thank you!

We are a family of four (two teenaged girls and two adults) traveling to London for Christmas this year. We realize that most attractions, etc. are closed for Christmas and Boxing Day, and wondered what types of tourist activities you would recommend that we pursue (in addition to walking around and just enjoying the beauty of this wonderful city)?
