Nowhere else does London's history come to life so vividly as it does in this minicity of 20 towers filled with heraldry and treasure, the intimate details of lords and dukes and princes and sovereigns etched in the walls (literally, in some places), and quite a few pints of royal blood spilled on the stones. Don't forget a visit to the Tower of London.

This spectacular theater is a replica of Shakespeare's open-roof, wood-and-thatch Globe Playhouse in London (built in 1599 and burned down in 1613), where most of the Bard's greatest works premiered.

The beloved seat of Henry VIII's court, sprawled elegantly beside the languid waters of the Thames, Hampton Court Palace really gives you two for the price of one: the magnificent Tudor red-brick mansion, begun in 1514 by Cardinal Wolsey to curry favor with the young Henry, and the larger 17th-century baroque building, which was partly designed by Christopher Wren (of St. Paul's fame).

    Loved the British Museum. Must have visited it every day that I was in London. A guard let me touch the Rosetta Stone (he laughed when I asked). To be able to see a first edition of Pride and Prejudice, and the Magna Carta just left me in awe.
