Photo Essay: Sightseeing in London, England

Photos from a day of sightseeing in London, England

There’s good reason why London always makes the list as one of the world’s most visited cities. The historical city blends modern development with its medieval past, offering snap-happy tourists endless sightseeing opportunities.

Our last trip to London was during the cold month of January, having just spent several weeks bouncing around Europe’s festive Christmas Markets.

Fortunately for us, we captured these photos just a few hours before a massive snowstorm hit the United Kingdom, paralyzing its transportation network and forcing its residents to reconsider their holidays (we spent 20+ hours at Heathrow Airport waiting for the runways to clear!).
