There's more to London than Beefeaters, Westminster Abbey and the Queen. It's the largest, liveliest city in Europe, taking in the posh, boutique-filled streets of West London as well as the trendy, ramshackle squares of the once-industrial East End. "Gastropubs" have popped up everywhere from Clerkenwell to Chelsea; even the River Thames is now rimmed with experimental theaters, galleries, and spiffed-up wharfs. Discover historic London's creative and culinary rebirth for yourself. Start here.
