The old saying goes that "when you are tired of London, you are tired of life" – come to London to see what inspired this statement yourself. You'll surely find that there's more than enough in the UK capital to keep you busy on a weekend trip! World-famous museums such the National Gallery and the Tate Modern sit alongside historic buildings, including the Tower of London. Visit Westminster Abbey, where kings and queens are crowned and married, or take a tour of Buckingham Palace to get a glimpse of how the Royal Family lives. As the day draws to a close, head to London's West End, where you can choose from a wide range of musicals in Theatreland, or enjoy an authentic dinner in Chinatown. End your weekend getaway in the streets around Covent Garden, where the bars are open late, or venture outside the city to the new trendy hangouts of Shoreditch and Dalston, where you can enjoy live music or listen to top DJs.
