Best things to do in London
Did you know?
It was at the Freemason's Pub in Covent Garden where the Football Association (FA) was founded in 1863. Over the course of five evenings, the pioneers of football as we know it set the first 13 laws of the game, making the Freemason’s Tavern (as it was called back then) the birthplace of association football. While the pub is not a typical tourist destination per se, it celebrates the Football Association with a display of memorabilia and is also a great place to watch the match.

Borough Market, open Monday to Sunday, is London’s oldest food market. Over in the East End, check the Broadway and Columbia Road markets for delicious street food and some colourful scenery.
Westminster is one the most historical areas in London; from the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace and the Churchill War Rooms, Westminster is a historian’s delight.

Local emergency services
As in all British cities, sometimes accidents happen. We want you to be safe and stay well but if you are in a life-threatening situation, you should contact the Emergency Services by calling 999 – this will connect you to Fire, Police and Ambulance services.
If you need medical assistance for a problem which is not life threatening, call the health service helpline on 111 where advice will be available from trained personnel.
