    London Eye

    4.5
    566 reviews

    I walked along the river at night near the London Eye. Though I did not go on it-- it's a nice thing to look at. If you feel like taking a stroll at night (and not going out and getting piss drunk, which is your other option), this is a great option. Take a few photos. It's beautiful during the ...

    Big Ben

    4.5
    387 reviews

    I mean, you can't really avoid it. It's everywhere. The closer you get to Big Ben, the more touristy it gets. But you can still look at it and appreciate it from wherever you are. It depends on you whether you want to make the trip to get closer (and deal with the hordes of people). I found that it ...

    As a tourist I visited this area, but it doesn't take much time to see. Enjoyed the national museum behind it though, which was free to get into.

    Tower of London

    4.5
    246 reviews

    There's a sense of spookiness about the Tower of London. After all so many lives have been cut short (or heads cut off to be exact) here. A visit is a must. I really enjoy the beefeater (sorry Yeoman Wardens) docent led walks.

    Thumping with energy and color, Piccadilly Circus is a lovely burst of life in a city teeming with history. Spend some time, take some photos, and avoid the heavy crowds as best you can!

    Harrods

    4
    214 reviews

    Definitely one of those places that's a must-go for tourists. With that being said, it's packed a lot of the time. Easily accessible by Tube too. Enjoy a half day of shopping for souvenirs and eating. There's cafes and restaurants, even a marketplace with food items like chocolate and tea. Afternoon tea at Harrods is awesome!

    So much has happened and continues to happen at Westminster Abbey, and the bodies of most of British history seemed to be buried under the church.

    By far, hands down, my favorite part of London! AMAZING!! Hip, trendy and youthful! Where all the cool and colorful people spend hang out. There are several different market options with trendy fashions. And you can have your fill of cheap street food from around the world. It is just spectacular to walk around, you could spend all day there! ...

    The collection is extensive, and you would need more than one day to truly appreciate everything there.

    Tate Modern

    4.5
    135 reviews

    We visit Tate Modern every time we are in London. The permanent collection changes and there is always some interesting temporary exhibition. There is no admission fee. We also always visit the 7th floor restaurant for the reliably good menu and the excellent view.

    Borough Market

    4.5
    110 reviews

    I can't say enough good things about this place. I wish I had four stomachs so I could roam the market and eat everything. Twice. Even if you're not hungry, it's such a wonderful atmosphere to just get sucked up in!

    Covent Garden

    4.5
    108 reviews

    This may not make your list of sites to see on your first visit to London, but if you have some extra time, or this is a repeat visit to London, definitely check out Covent Garden. It's a sprawling labyrinth of little shops and booths! It's easy to lose your way and lose track of time. It's a lively spot ...

    Oxford Street

    4
    130 reviews

    London is my favorite city in all Europe to shop for men's clothing. I first discovered Top Shop on Oxford Street. All the other usual characters are there, H&M, Bennetton and Zara. It's also the place you're most likely to see British celebrities.

    Madame Tussaud's

    4
    124 reviews

    This is a very touristy, but fun thing to do in London. If you like pop culture, it's quite fun to see the wax models of famous people throughout history including political figures, celebs, and athletes. Bring your camera and snap loads of pictures, and be sure to take a picture with the Queen!

    The Palace of Westminster in London is like our Capitol Building in Washington DC. The Palace is the home to both the British legislative bodies, the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
