The British capital, with its eye-catching bright red double-decker buses, its archaic customs such as the changing of the guard, and of course the crown jewels, took the top spot in the annual Travellers' Choice Awards for Destinations, beating the likes of glamorous destinations such as Paris, Crete, Rome and Bali.
The winner was determined by an algorithm that rated reviews given to hotels, experiences and restaurants over a 12-month period.
However, being the cynical pedants that we are at indy100, we weren't convinced, so we decided to take to Twitter to get more of a 'people's take' on the city's top landmarks.
Here, we've compiled a list of what people really think of London, and to be honest, it's not entirely rosy. In fact, lots of people are quite simply 'mugging London off', to use the local lingo.
Big Ben? Not impressed.
