Anyone who has been to London will tell you, there's a LOT of history to learn about. I don't know if anyone's told you, but London's been around for awhile, and a few interesting things have happened in its history. For many, it will be...More

Highly recommend visiting the bunker. So much history here, we spent several hours here and not one person in our group of six was bored or pushing to leave. You gotta make this a tourist stop for sure!
