As a bastion of European class and culture, London holds a special place in the hearts of vacationers the world over. Few cities boast as much history as this English capital, any so anybody wandering the streets will have plenty to do. From iconic sports stadiums and breathtaking monuments to legendary concert venues, a trip to London is a must.
You can't think of sports in London without Wembley Stadium immediately coming to mind. One of the most famous arenas in the world, this beautiful venue has played host to a number of huge events since opening its doors in 2007. Home of the English national soccer team, Wembley Stadium has also hosted a handful of NFL games as well. The first such game was in 2007, when the New York Giants beat the Miami Dolphins 13-10, marking the first time an NFL regular season game had been played outside of North America.
Of course, Wembley Stadium is not just the perfect setting for a soccer or rugby match, but its 90,000 seats lends itself perfectly to hosting concerts as well. A long list of legendary groups have played shows at the stadium including Bon Jovi, Oasis, Madonna and Metallica.
While Wembley Stadium might be one of the most recognizable structures in London, it barely scratches the surface in terms of places to go. The city is one of the leaders of the world in both classical and popular music. In particular, the Barbican Centre is the largest performing arts center in Europe, hosts numerous performances throughout the year, and is the home to the London Symphony Orchestra.
For those with a more mainstream sound in mind, there are a slew of concert venues that host some of the most famous acts of today. The Brixton Academy and Hammersmith Apollo are two of the most well-known and are both unique places to take in a show.
You'd be remiss if you didn't take in a least of some of the historical landmarks London has to offer. Luckily, the city isn't at a loss for such locations, and a trip to St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower Bridge or even just a stroll along the River Thames will fill you with a sense of history that can't be found anywhere else.
