Why It's Worth It

Yes, there’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s union, but London waves the multicultural flag with Buddhist temples, age-old mosques, synagogues, and Peace tents. Ethnic markets bustle from Borough and Brick Lane to Brixton and Tooting, while the more than 215 museums and four UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Tower of London, dating back to the 11th century, also draw crowds. Lesser known are the 3,000-plus parks and 142 nature reserves set to secure London’s #NationalParkCity status by 2019. —Alexandra Shakespeare
