About London

Londonís mysterious beginnings supposedly started in the 43AD Roman settlement of Londinium. This first London was burned down by an Iceni tribe, rebuilt and flourished in the 2nd century, and then abandoned by the 5th, when the Roman Empire fell. Several years later, in the 600ís, Anglo-Saxonís moved into London and soon the city was a thriving center of trade and politics. It became one of the most well-to-do cities in the world and continued down this path until modern times.

Today London is a global hub of finance, business, culture, language, art, fashion, and music. It is considered one of the most eclectic in the world and is quite possibly the top tourist destination in Europe because of the enormous amounts of history, culture, as well as things to do. Thereís business in the Docklands, shopping and fun in the West End, and the city center just bursting with heritage and history.

Abbots Travel is a good site for your UK hotel, travel and holiday reservations.
