You sound like you're from London! Well not yet, but after a pint of Newcastle, and a visit with the Queen, you'll be speaking the Kings in no time. Admire Big Ben from atop a double-decker bus, catch the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, and take a Thames river cruise under the Tower Bridge. Get a taste of British culture with fish and chips and a pint of English Ale, then ride to the top of the London Eye to see the city illuminated against the night sky.
