Traveling in YA: London, England!

It's time for another TRAVELING IN YA post! 

Today, we're herding to:
LONDON, ENGLAND!
London is such an amazing city! It's full of history and culture around every corner! Not only is it a great place to go to see touristy places, it's got some great local places too! The food is good and the people are pretty nice (from what I've heard.) I have heard that it's kinda smelly (Thames) but that's okay. Here are some places to vibist in London: 
Buckingham Palace 
Westminster Abbey 
Tower Bridge 
St. Paul's Cathedral 
London Eye 
Big Ben and House of Parliament 
Lots of places to visit! AND let's not forget about the double decker buses! London is a very popular place for author's to se their books: 
The Books:
Look at all of these YA books set in London or in England! SO MANY! There are some contemporary, some...er...action?...and historical fiction and loads more! 

BUT THAT IS NOT ALL! London, and England in general boasts of LOTS of classic authors: 

Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens
H.G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Mary Shelley 
William Shakespeare 

So, what do you think?! Would you want to visit London or England in general? I sure as heck would!
