If you like city breaks, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and of course London offer excellent and varied destinations. London, England's capital and once the largest city in the world, offers countless sights. From the London Eye Ferris Wheel on the Thames you can see the Parliament, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, the seat of the Queen.
