London was founded by the Romans, who called it Londinium. This city is the largest city in the UK and the European Union. London has many tourist attractions, ranging from London Eye, Big Ben, Madam Tussaud’s museum to West End. London Eye is the tallest ferries wheel in the whole of Europe, which provides nice views of the city; where as West End has movie theaters and plays, which offer entertainment.

The play, ‘The Mousetrap’ has been running in West End since several years. Big Ben is a clock, so don’t forget to be near it at the right time, so that you can hear its renowned chimes. Madam Tussaud’s museum consists of wax statues of world famous personalities, but you should keep in mind that there is a long queue to get in there, so the experience can be time consuming.

All consuming nightlife of London

The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, London Bridge and West End are all illuminated at night and are a sight to behold. People who visit the nightclubs in London are very fashionable and are seen in the trendiest of clothes and latest accessories. Colorful laser lights are seen flashing in the discotheques.

Club Fabric

Fabric is the biggest and best club in London. It was a meatpacking place earlier. Most of the people who come to the capital city, visit Fabric. Renowned disk jockeys, like DJ Hype, play drum and bass here. Several other parties held in Fabric are a sell out. You will see world famous disk jockeys making appearances here, time and again. House is also played in Fabric. All this results in the shortage of tickets, so try and get onto the guest list or book your tickets in advance.

Club Ministry of Sound

Ministry of Sound is another well known clubbing venue in London. Formerly a bus depot, this club is now every club junkie’s ultimate nightlife destination. Ministry of Sound comprises of three dance floors, four bars and five rooms. So, there’s a lot you can do here. Trance is played here on Friday nights, where as, on Saturdays the music ranges from house, techno to electronic.

Club Barfly

Barfly is an institution in itself for every music lover and party goer. This is because, in spite of Barfly’s shabby demeanor  the bands that have played here are The Futureheads and Coldplay. In the era of the Brit pop years, this club was a popular hangout because of loud DJ sets. This club has a good reputation because upcoming talents of the music world play here, seven days of the week.
