What to see and do in London

imag: Shoppingimage: Places of interestmuseums

London attracts very large numbers of visitors and tourists and can be an expensive place to visit. However, there is still much you can see and do for free.

Tourist attractions are mainly in Central London. Plan your day well. London is a big place and if you are not careful you may find yourself spending most of the day travelling.

It's worth booking or getting tickets in advance for any major attractions - including The Tower of London - which will save you a lot of time - sometimes the queues can take hours - you can usually book online at the website of the attraction.

Use the Tube Map to work out how you would travel to the places mentioned below.

Top 10 Places to Visit in London

The most popular and our favourite attractions are:

  1. Take a ride on the London Eye
    The big wheel which gives you a panoramic view of London. It is the world's highest observation wheel and offers passengers spectacular views of over 55 of London's most famous landmarks - all in just 30 minutes.
  2. Changing of the guard
    Buckingham Palace and Horse Guards at Whitehall. I prefer Whitehall as you can get closer to the guards.
  3. See a Musical - They're amazing
  4. Tower of London and Tower Bridge
    Home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is over a thousand years old.
  5. Hamleys
    The worlds biggest toy store
  6. Shop at Picadilly Circus
