London is a lovely city. There is always something new to discover, and the familiar places are always pleasant to return to. We went to the most famous sights of London.
This visit was only for a couple of days, like all my visits to what used to be the world’s most important city. I had decided not to award this particular visit a separate blog entry, but then I browsed my photo albums and rediscovered some really nice pictures.
We were returning home from a round trip of Ireland and Northern Ireland (one of my blogging projects still in the pipeline), and spent the days walking the streets of central London. We also went on a half-day excursion to the royal palace of Windsor.
This short post about the most famous sights of London, comes in addition to other Sandalsand articles from London: 2006 and 2012. In addition three visited places in London are on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Read the articles from Westminster, Tower of London and Maritime Greenwich.

Now, what is London? Read this introduction from Wikipedia.
London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. It stands on the River Thames in south-east England at the head of a 50-mile (80 km) estuary down to the North Sea, and has been a major settlement for two millennia. The City of London, its ancient core and financial centre, was founded by the Romans as Londinium and retains boundaries close to its medieval ones. The City of Westminster, to the west of the City of London, has for centuries held the national government and parliament.
