There is a lot to see and do when you are visiting London. Whether it is shopping, eating out or sightseeing in capital, the visitors are often spoilt for choice. However, artistic minds have some other plans when they come to London. They indulge less in fanciful attractions and rather spend their time admiring the famous art works for which the city is famous for.
