If London contained only its landmarks it would still rank as one of the world's top destinations. But England's capital is much more. It is a bevy of English bobbies, an ocean of black umbrellas, and an unconquered continuance of more than 2,000 years of history. Now an uber-cool city, London remains history-steeped. Drop in on Buckingham Palace, delight in Pollock's Victorian toy museum, then get Beatle-ized at Abbey Road. You'll find London is a Dickens of a place.
