Iconic • Big Ben • Government center
With more iconic places than you can count on fingers and toes, this part of town is tourist heaven and proud gem for all Brits alike. If Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey aren’t enough sights to see, cruise the shops of colorful Carnaby Street. Art museums? The National Gallery is full of paintings by the Old Masters, and Tate Britain has collections spanning centuries. After your adventures, a pint at a pub or a martini shaken, not stirred, might be a good nightcap from all that head craning and selfie tacking.
