    You should not only look at it, walk on it, but really visit it. As this is also a museum you can stroll through and find our how it was build and how it works. And the view on the top floors is also nice.

    Natural History Museum

    112 reviews

    The New York Natural History Museum is one of my favorites but the London Natural History Museum topped it hands down! The museum is massive and beautiful! It was separated into several large sections and I wasn't able to get thought everything so I'll have to go back for another visit. It's hard to say what my favorite was but ...

    River Thames

    128 reviews

    The wind pouring across the river nearly chilled us to our breaking points. But there's a majesty to the Thames, as it seems to hearken back to centuries ago. Incredibly romantic!

    Westminster Abbey

    176 reviews

    One of the most well known buildings in the entire world. The carving, intricate design, buttressed columns, gargoyles, interred heros/royalty, and some very significant and special historical items. This is a one of a kind place. There are very few places of such significance the world over, that are still in regular use. Pro Tip: Pay the fee and go ...

    Hyde Park

    152 reviews

    Beware the aggressive squirrels! It may look like a calm and peaceful patch of green in the middle of a metropolis, but look out for the feisty furballs in the trees. They want whatever it is you're snacking on, and they'll stop at nothing to get it!

    Piccadilly Circus

    237 reviews

    Amazing, bright, vibrant, noisy. If you have a case of the blues, come and stand here and soak it all in. Plenty of music to be heard, plenty of musicals to be seen, plenty of food to be eaten.

    Covent Garden

    108 reviews

    Covent garden is well worth a visit, particularly if are up for a good shop! It is a very quaint neighborhood, but definitely has it's quirks! When I visited, there was a man hanging upside down from a lamp post playing his guitar. This incident has perhaps forever defined my perception of Covent Garden!

    The National Gallery

    133 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.

    Millenium Bridge

    One of London's Iconic Architecture to welcome the new Millennium had to be closed again after its first opening because it was structurally 'unstable', it swayed heavily! Nowadays it's a nice walkway from which you can see a nice view of the South Bank. Especially cool place is at the end of the South side from which you can see ...

    Brick Lane

    45 reviews

    Loads of cheap Indian restaurants with the obligatory person harassing you outside of the restaurant offering a free glass of wine, etc. The food is usually good. Nearby are nightclubby venues where you can dance off the vindaloo.
