About Holidays in London, England

The place of main interest to foreign visitors is London, that great sprawling metropolis which has more to see than is possible in one holiday. The River Thames runs through London and one good way to get an overview of London and its attractions is to take a boat trip along the Thames. A large percentage of England's population is centred around London and the south east of England.
