Kensington, Chelsea & Knightsbridge



While the City of London is traditionally the financial heart of the city (nowadays in competition with other new district built during the last 50 years), the area of Kensington, Knightsbridge and Chelsea is where the richest families of England are concentrated, being also some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world, with commercial arteries dedicated exclusively to luxury brands, with Harrods being its most striking exponent. It also has within its limits several important points of London, such as the Kensington Palace, the Royal Brompton Hospital, the National Army Museum and the Ranelagh Gardens.

British Museum



Like in the case of the Louvre, the British Museum became one of the greatest lighthouses of the study of the History of the Humanity during the last 200 years, in a cycle that began in what was the massification of the museums of the 19th century, complemented with the rise of archeology and the physical presence of the United Kingdom in the cultural centres of many of the world cultures. Nowadays, the institution contains more than 8 million historical pieces, divided among several of its public palaces. The gigantic building known as the British Museum is nevertheless the most relevant, known for its new circular glass structure in the former Reading Room.

Leadenhall Market



Hidden within the agglomeration of new towers of the City of London, the Leadenhall Market is one of the oldest markets in the city, with almost 800 years since its original version. Unlike other markets, it's actually a normal street extension, in what it is some sort of classic crossing roofed with commercial premises. Although it is quite small in size, several films and series were filmed in it, including Harry Potter and Doctor Parnassus.

Buses of London



There's probably two great icons when it comes to London: the Big Ben and its double-decker red buses. London is known for having the first underground network in the world, but that quality can also be extended to other transportation systems. Already in the 19th Century, the city had horse-drawn omnibuses, which evolved to steam buses at the beginning of the 20th Century and then to those that are widely known, which were used for several decades until the modern adapted models from the last years.
