2015 was a bumper year for London with nearly 19 million overseas travellers visiting the city, making it the globe's most popular destination. It is not just the theatres, museums and fish 'n chips that are attracting people, but the Pound's low exchange rate, making your Dollar, Euro and Yuan goes further. The top three attractions are the British Museum (my favourite), the National Gallery (take the opportunity to see Holbein's The Ambassadors with the distorted skull) and the Natural History Museum (With the skeleton of 'Dippy' the diplodocus, who will soon be soon be on tour). With its quirky and downright strange history, London is my place for a good wander!

Those who work in tourism related industry will have good bonus. I think the tips given to the tour guide, coach driver, and the restaurant waiters are quite substantial. It is good that tourists are coming. Let us hope that terrorists stay away.

It is a massive industry and not just for London, the whole country is a bit of tourist theme park!

I haven't been to London since 2006. I disappointed that during that trip the underground didn't have the tourist pass anymore. BTW, what happened to the ticket guys on the buses? I hated having to have exact change to put in a machine for a ticket to ride.

We've gone all modern and if you have a chip card it is touch and go, the system automatically gives you the cheapest rate

London is king for things to do and see. It is no wonder it is so popular and of course the great hospitality of the British people.

I suppose another plus is that so many visitors speak English as a first or second language. The Uk has a big service economy, so looking after visitors brings in the cash!

To see the skull you need to stand on the right side and look at an angle. I do like it.

@Ronrybs I cannot say that I like it, but I am intrigued by that painting and its meaning.

I think I can remember it. Post it as one of your articles. That is probably my favourite Tudor painting. I have seen dozens of times, just about everytime I am in Trafalgar Square
