The best way of discovering London is on foot or from the top of a bus. No other large city is more rewarding to wander around, with a wealth of interesting things to see, both grand and intimate in scale. Watercolour painter Graham Byfield set out to capture the essence of the place, and his impressions are recorded in the London Sketchbook.
Britain’s capital is varied and cosmopolitan. It has no formally planned centre; each area has its own particular style and atmosphere. Central London is the setting for parliament, royal palaces, formal squares and grand hotels.
The city is the financial district, but it is also rich in architecture, including Sir Christopher Wren’s greatest work.
