London is a magnificent melting pot and an exemplary showcase art, culture and beautiful urban spaces - both contemporary and historical. England’s largest city is home to some of the world’s most magnetic Gothic architecture, and a prolific arts and theatre culture. A few must visit places in London city are the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. Head to the Buckingham Palace and catch the changing of the Guard at 11:30am from May until the end of July. Tourists can view the Crown Jewels, and also take a mandatory picture with a guard. Most of London’s museums have free entry, so take it all in from Tate Modern to the City Museum to the National Gallery and the Historical Museum. Make a stop at the Westminster Abbey and revel in the bustling Trafalgar Square that is the heart of London. For something more intimate, take a walk down to the Borough Market that has probably the best food and produce in London. Grab yourself a Cornish pasty or a plateful of the signature fish and chips before you leave London city.

Paris is magnetic, plastered across the vision boards of dreamy-eyed, budding travellers around the world. Start with a visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral for an understanding of Paris’s multilayered history. When you visit the city’s major attraction, the Eiffel tower, try reserving tickets ahead of time, to skip the long queues. Although there are many, many such things and attractions you must visit in Paris, don’t miss out on a leisurely walk under the shaded trails by the Seine, or unwind at the lush promenades of Jardin des Tuileries. Attend a poetry reading in an old bookshop and enjoy the illustrious cabaret of The Crazy Horse. This glittering city of light is all about understated, yet glamorised experiences - wandering the Parisian streets, walking the avenues and bridges, listening to the hum flowing out of bistros and bars; musicians in the metro and that particular scent of old, used books at the Shakespeare and Co. Paris is also a shopaholic’s Mecca, with a number of high-end shops and hidden flea markets. For those led by their stomachs, don’t leave Paris without getting your hands on their baguettes and macarons. And of course, many many glasses of wine.

Brussels, capital of Belgium, is said to be the capital of Europe since it’s home to the European Parliament, European Council and European Commission.This old city has its own charm when it comes to attracting people. Belgian waffles, beer and chocolates oh and did I forget the Belgian fries? Definitely add it to the list. However I would say that Brussels is pretty famous for its Gothic structures and art in various form that makes another reason for this place to be experienced at least once.
