London is Still one of the Greatest Cities in the World - by Travelrobe

With a population of just under eight million and stretching for more than thirty miles at its broadest point, London is by far one of greatest cities in the world.

(PRWEB) July 25, 2006

With a population of just under eight million and stretching for more than thirty miles at its broadest point, London is by far one of greatest cities in the world.

For any visitor, London is a thrilling place to visit, with its world-class museums, galleries and institutions from the Royal Opera House to the British Museum, Tate Modern and the London Eye, the city can boast to be one of the greatest cities in the world.

Ethnically it's also Europe's most diverse metropolis, around two hundred languages are spoken within its confines, and more than thirty percent of the population is made up of first, second and third generation immigrants. Despite Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish devolution, London still dominates the national horizon.

London is also where the country's news and money is made, it's where the central government resides and as far as Travelrobe is concerned, it's undeniable that the capital has a unique aura of excitement and success in most walks of British life, if you want to get on you've got to do it in London.

For visitors travelling to London, you can book a hotel, flight, car hire and more through www. travelrobe. com and they are recommending these sites to visit

Big Ben

Westminster Abbey

Buckingham Palace

St Paul's Cathedral

Tower of London

London Eye

Trafalgar Square

Mark Felix Travelrobe’s MD says, anyone planning to visit London should not wait until the 2012 Olympics to visit, you could spend days just shopping in London, with the upper classes in Harrods, or sampling the offbeat weekend markets of Portobello Road and Camden. The music, clubbing, gay, lesbian scenes are second to none.

London is also a great place to eat out, you can sample more or less any kind of cuisine and, wherever you come from, you should find something new and quite possibly unique. Home to some of the best Cantonese restaurants in the whole of Europe, London is also a noted centre for Indian and Bangladeshi food and has numerous French, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Thai restaurants; and within all these cuisines, you can choose anything from simple meals to gourmet spreads.

Bucks County, PA (PRWEB) May 18, 2006

On May 1, 2006, the Pennsylvania Tourism and Lodging Association (PTLA) presented Peddler’s Village and The Inn at Bowman’s Hill with prestigious Pennsylvania Spirit of Hospitality Awards. Lynne Amery of The Inn at Bowman’s Hill was presented with the 2006 Pennsylvania Innkeeper of the Year Award, and Peddler’s Village earned the 2005 Community Service Award.

The Pennsylvania Tourism & Lodging Association presented the Pennsylvania Spirit of Hospitality Awards as a means of recognizing outstanding performance, commitment and achievements in the hospitality and tourism industry. The awards were presented during an Awards Dinner at the Association’s 2006 Lodging Conference at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, State College. The Bucks County Conference & Visitors Bureau attended the dinner in support of The Inn at Bowman’s Hill and Peddler’s Village.

These prestigious awards recognized outstanding qualities that set the standards for the entire industry to achieve; all entrants invested a good amount of time in developing a nomination presentation. Nominees were judged on quality and quantity of materials that substantiated the award entry. The recognition of a business, employee or manager being chosen for exemplary qualities is thought to distinguish the receiver as a leader in the Tourism industry.

The Innkeeper of the Year Award honors an innkeeper who has demonstrated professionalism in operating a B&B, country inn, or farm vacation and has taken a leadership role in the unique lodging industry by actively participating in association, community, or industry programs.

The Community Service Award is given for programs designed to provide service and demonstrate to residents that the individual property or chain is responsive to the local community. Examples include campaigns to benefit local or national service organizations or charities; service to any part of the community through a special project; and joint undertakings with community groups for the benefit of the community.

The PA Tourism & Lodging Association is the leading trade association whose mission is to promote and protect the interests of the hospitality and tourism industry in Pennsylvania. We also serve as the member state association for the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA). The PTLA was established in 1982 and is governed by a 36-member Board of Directors, consists of 11 standing committees and has more than 650 state-wide members.
