Located in the south of England, London is home to a lot of famous landmarks such as the Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square and Greenwhich, the site of the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude).

But just like any other city, London has a few more sights and sounds and tastes to offer aside for the usual tourist fare. Here are just some of them:

It’s common geographical knowledge that the River Thames flows through the city, cutting London into two. But as the river branches off into smaller canals and waterways throughout the city, not a lot of tourists realize that these riverbanks can paint a pretty picture too.

London also boasts the oldest underground railway network in the world. With such a title, it’s not difficult to imagine the adventures that one could get into. Fancy exploring the old tube stations?
