    London Eye

    Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7PB
    4.5
    563 reviews

    The London Eye is one of the tallest Ferris Wheels in the world. It's prominent location along the Thames is a nod to the old cities thriving culture and modernity. Personally, my fear of heights precludes me from ever going in so tall and precarious-seeming a contraption, but it's nice to look at.

    Tower Bridge

    Tower Bridge Road, London SE1 2UP
    4.5
    448 reviews

    Worth braving the wind across the river, because no trip to London is complete without some shots of this landmark bridge.

    Big Ben

    Bridge Street, London SW1A 2 United Kingdom
    4.5
    386 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 ...

    Trafalgar Square

    Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DX United Kingdom

    302 reviews

    Trafalgar Square sits in front of the National Gallery. But you can enjoy art in the Square itself. Check out Nelson's Column and the plinths which sit at the corners of the square. The empty fourth plinth is the site of ever changing artistic works. And everyone climbs one of the lions to take a photo.

    Buckingham Palace

    At the end of the Mall - where Queen Liz lives. One of the places you'll probably regret NOT visiting. It is worth it, though you can only look through the railings. There is a museum there though, which does sometimes have great exhibitions on.

    Tower of London

    Tower Hill, London EC3N 4AB United Kingdom
    4.5
    244 reviews

    I would rate this higher, but I just felt really sick here. I couldn't wait to get out, that I couldn't really enjoy/explore. It was more like, how fast can I get through this fortress and out the exit. It was cool to see the "crown jewels" though. I did feel better once I left!

    The British Museum

    Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3 United Kingdom
    4.5
    219 reviews

    Arguably the world's single greatest museum. Don't miss the Assyrian reliefs, the Rosetta stone, the Elgin marbles, the Lewis Chessmen, etc. If you can read without moving your lips, you owe it to yourself to spend an afternoon here. And if you can't, ask your parents to take you here.

    Piccadilly Circus

    235 reviews

    Overcrowded traffic roundabout in the middle of London. If you insist on going there, go after dark to see the illuminated signs at their best.

    Harrods

    4
    213 reviews

    Harrods is not just a department store, it is a tourist destination! It is almost always crowded and when there's a sale?! forget about it! They really need to institute crowd control procedures....for every one's safety. Can't get in the way of a great deal of the devoted shopaholic! The store itself is interesting with themed rooms and a stop ...

    Beautiful! You could send hours walking around and looking at everything. You can't take pictures inside. Nice gift shop.

    Should be familiar to anyone visiting London more than once; always something new to check out even if you're not out shopping.

    Went for a walk in the park with my family after visiting some major attractions. Good place to sit if you're interested in having a picnic or people watching.

    The National Gallery

    4.5
    131 reviews

    Beautiful gallery with a wonderful array of works! Including that of Van Gough! I went in only because I had time to kill, but I was really thankful that I did. It is a thoroughly well organised gallery with very relevant and interesting information to accompany each painting.

    If you like modern art, this is a very exciting museum. There seems to always be something interesting happening outside the museum as well as inside.

    River Thames

    4.5

    Such an iconic and impressive scenic backdrop for your holiday photos/instagrams/selfies. The River Thames and its surrounding buildings are the quintessential London snapshots, so I would definitely recommend heading to this area on a walkabout.

    Still going strong after centuries of operation, the veritable foodie nirvana of Borough Market has seen a tremendous upsurge of coolness over the last couple of decades since it broadened its focus from solely wholesalers to include consumers as well. Today it’s London’s most famous food market, with more than 100 stalls selling all manner of fine edibles from across ...

    I loved the Nat History museums in DC and New York but the one in London is definitely my favourite one. It is huge, and so impressive, I spent a whole day wandering its hallowed halls :) You won't regret stopping by here!

    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.

    Covent Garden is a historical market that has been since renovated with shops and restaurants. It's a great place to stroll around, shop, and grab a bite to eat. There are even various street performers daily who are extremely talented and entertaining.

    It is great place to see wax figures that are made to look like celebrities. Easy to find using the underground trains. Allow plenty of time as the queues can be quite long
