Chances are you probably already know all about London, but for those out there who may not, here are some fun tidbits about this amazing city:

London has been around since the time of the Romans -- the original founders of the city, which was first called Londinium -- but it is a truly modern metropolis. Home to the 2012 Summer Olympics, London is the capital of the United Kingdom and considered the other financial center of world, next to New York. If you‘re visiting this enormous city, be sure to take some time to stroll by the Thames or to enjoy a ride on its famous double decker buses! Samuel Johnson famously said, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life,” and we couldn‘t agree more!
