An abundance of museums and English pubs

You could easily spend an entire weekend visiting London’s many museums. The British Museum is worth a visit for its amazing architecture alone. For modern art, the place to be is the Tate Modern on the South Bank of the Thames. The South Bank is also home to the London Eye, whose glass capsules offer glorious views of the city. And when Big Ben strikes 5 o'clock, the London pubs fill up: it’s time for a pint!
