Like London? Like corgis? Like Twitter? Visit London has a fun social media campaign going on where you can win a 5 night trip to London if you follow @FindRufus the Corgi on Twitter and locate him on this fun illustrated map of London (hint: Read his latest tweets and zoom into the map). In this video, Rufus takes in what London has to offer, from riding the double decker buses, checking out the art at the Royal Academy, and the music at Royal Albert Hall, shopping in the old Spitfields covered market, dabbling in afternoon tea and closing the evening at the London Eye. The competition goes until November 23rd.
