We were lucky enough to spend the entire month of August housesitting in London, where we fell head-over-heels in love with the city almost immediately.
We thought we’d have plenty of time to see the sites, eat some (perhaps awful, given everything we’d heard) British food, and visit a pub or two, but it turns out there’s so much going on that it can’t really be packed into a single month’s worth of experiences. We’ll definitely be back… perhaps even as residents!
These photos of London can’t even begin to capture how dynamic, vibrant, and diverse London truly is, but at least they’ll provide a taste of the highlights!
The London Eye is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe, and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the U.K.
