WATCH: London city guide video

Friday 09 October 2015

When you think of London what springs to mind? Big Ben, Tower Bridge...? We made this video to show you that there's a lot more to the city than just the famous landmarks. How about sky tours on the London Helicopter, fresh coffee and great atmosphere at Shoreditch Grind, open air theatre in Regents Park, buzz and barbecue at Brixton Splash... and that's just for starters?

(Video directed by Joshua Lipworth and produced by Katharine Cowell) This is the first of a new series of city guides created by VisitBritain to get you all excited about Britain's cities. Next up - Brighton! For more great videos about Britain, check out our Youtube channel.
