Discover The Best of London
Travel tips from Frommer's London 2011
The British capital is alive and well and culturally more vibrant than it has been in years. The sounds of the latest music pour out of Victorian pubs, experimental theater is popping up on stages built for Shakespeare’s plays, upstart chefs are reinventing the bland dishes British mums have made for generations, and Brits are even running couture houses like Dior. In food, fashion, film, music, and just about everything else, London now stands at the cutting edge, just as it did in the 1960s.
If this sea of change worries you more than it appeals to you, rest assured that traditional London still exists, essentially intact under the veneer of hip. From high tea almost anywhere to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, the city still abounds with the tradition and charm of days gone by.
