The best way to find out more about the attraction of London is to visit it for yourself and once you've jumped on board a double-decker bus and ridden around Trafalgar Square and along Oxford Street you may just be starting to see what all the fuss is about.

Tourism is one of the capital's major money makers and from hotels and restaurants to West End theatres and sporting arenas, it's easy to see how the tourism industry is responsible for employing upwards of 350,000 people.

Visitors from all over the world fight tirelessly for the best accommodation, sightseeing tours and viewing platforms to ensure they get a classic London experience and anyone who's travelled in a black cab will know that this can often be quite expensive. It's estimated that tourists will spend over £15 billion every year in England's capital and travel and tourism student tours will be presented with numerous examples on why this is the case.

The landmarks, the style and the royal family are all responsible for people visiting London and with over 14 million making the effort it will come as no surprise that this is the most widely visited city in the whole of Europe.

With an eclectic range of museums, galleries and churches dotted throughout the city is it any wonder that the tourist board's marketing department is spoiled for choice? And any student wishing to find out more need only step foot into a tourist info centre to discover a wealth of study material.

From summer music festivals in Hyde Park to strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, London is working hard to entice more and more tourists and just a glimpse within the pages of Time Out will give you further insight into the entertainment industry that keeps the capital buzzing.

The British Museum, the London Eye, the Tower of London and Madame Tussauds – university students interested in finding out more about London's travel and tourism industry need look no further.
