We are immersing ourselves in the city that holds a special place in our hearts – London! You have a chance to get out and about with two fabulous virtual tours. Learn about London’s past by ordering events on a time line. Test your knowledge of London’s landmarks by playing ‘Landmark Bingo’. Have fun! 🙂
