London is undoubtedly one of the world's finest cities. In addition to numerous monuments from its more glorious past, London is equally well-known for its pageantry and tradition. London has something for everyone - wide boulevards buzzing with excitement far into the night, quiet squares and explorable alleyways. Visit this famous city's parks, museums, galleries, monuments, abbeys and churches, skyscrapers and ruins, Georgian squares. Take in such events as the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower, or the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, or even one of the many theatrical productions. Some of the most exclusive shops are found along Oxford, Bond and Regent Streets. An old favorite and one of the world's premier institutions is Harrods - offering everything from Chanel suits and sliced salmon to caviar and even pets.
Oxford is home to a world famous university, and most of the colleges and university buildings are located in the centre of Oxford, within easy walking distance. Don't miss the Bodleian Library, which has its own shop, and nearby the Radcliffe Camera, which is not open to the public, but is well worth a view from the outside. Also nearby, in the Broad, is the Sheldonian Theatre, venue for official University functions as well as concerts. The University also owns the Botanic Garden, founded in 1621 as Physick Garden for the study of plants for medicinal and scientific use - peace and quiet from the city just two minutes down High Street.
