London has everything for all types of interests including nature, history, movie and book or shopping centers and night life. With its historical architecture, lots of museums and galleries, splendid parks, breathtaking River Thames, I should say you need a good plan to get the most out of this city.
While I was reviewing the places in London to make a list for this article, oh my God, I couldn’t end up a list! But don’t worry I did my best to select the best 10 must-see and also an additional one!
Top 10 must-see places in London
Here we go for the 10 best places to visit in London and of course much more to know for planning a good trip to this mesmerizing city.
Let’s start with the Westminster district which is home to the one of the iconic symbols of London: Big Ben!
Located on the north bank of River Thames, Westminster is the political district of London which has pretty interesting landmarks of the city, including: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey.
A. Big Ben
It is named as the largest bell of a tower known as Clock Tower and recently renamed to Elizabeth Tower. The tower with its Neo Gothic style located close to the Houses of Parliament, somehow become a symbol of London. So, if you are in London it is a must to take a photo in front of this iconic tower!
B. Houses of Parliament
Also called the Palace of Westminster, is the political hub of British Government in London. The building was first built in the 11th century, however it was drastically destroyed by a fire in 1834 and was rebuilt with Gothic revival style. You will have an impressive view of the building from Westminster Bridge or a bit farther from Lambeth Bridge. Once you are done with the exterior architecture, the next big thing to do is exploring the interior part of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The building has been designed in 4 floors and contains more than 1,100 rooms including offices, dining and meeting rooms (ground floor), libraries, chambers and dining rooms (first or principal floor) and committee rooms (third and four floors).
There are also many artworks in the Palace such as the bronze statue of David Lloyd George, Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher to name a few.
The Houses of Parliament is open to public (not all the rooms of course) and you can also attend and watch parliamentary debates or even better take a guided tour inside the buildings. However, the best option is to plan your visit beforehand by checking the Houses of Parliament’s website for availability and timetable.
C. Westminster Abbey:
Located in the west side of the Palace of Westminster, this church is mainly known for being the traditional place of coronation and burial for British monarchs. For example, the Royal Wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was held in this church.
Apart from being an important religious place for the UK’s Royal Family, the Gothic style architectural aspect of this building is impressive. Book your ticket and audio guide for visiting the church from here.
After visiting the church, go to Churchill War Rooms which is a 5-minute walk. It is a museum which depicts the British Government’s command center during the World War II. You can book a tour for this museum from this link.
When you are done with your visit, do not forget to enjoy walking alongside River Thames specially at sunset time or take a rive cruise.
2. London Eye
The London Eye or Millennium Wheel is a huge Ferris wheel located at the South Bank of the River Thames. It was officially opened on December 1999 for the celebration of the third millennium.
Initially it was supposed to be a temporary attraction, however, after attracting many tourists year in and year out, it was permanently built and surprisingly turned out to be an attraction. It has the highest tourist visit rate in the UK (among paid tourist attractions).
Being one of the tallest Ferris wheels (135 metres) in the world, you will have a spectacular view over the London. It has 32 capsules (air-conditioned) symbolizing the 32 London boroughs.
- It normally works until 06:00 pm during weekdays and 08:30 pm during weekends (in summer days one hour more).
- Each capsule has 25 seats, still you are allowed to move around inside the capsule and also the rotation speed is slow enough to let you walk inside. (Each revolution lasts about 30 minutes).
- If you are going to take a photo, pay attention that the window can be a bit reflective.
3. Buckingham Palace
One of the attractions that strongly recommended to visit in London is the Buckingham Palace, the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II and focal point for commemorations and major national celebrations. It is actually very exciting to visit a palace while it is in use by the Royal Family!
The Palace was built in 1703 and was remodeled time after time. The current building has 775 rooms, with a 17-hectare garden (including a lake). It has the largest private garden in London and usually used for the Queen’s garden parties.
Among the 775 rooms, there are 240 bedrooms (52 for royal and guest and 188 for staff), 92 offices, 78 bathrooms, and 19 state rooms that are open to public during the last 10 days of July, the whole August and September and some special days in December, January and at Easter.
- You also can visit The Royal Mews, and The Queen’s Gallery
- For visiting the garden, take into account that it is open to visit only during summer and daylight so not in the evening tours or winter visits.
- The visit normally lasts between 2 and 2.30h.
- It is not allowed to take photo in state rooms.
- You just can have a bottle of water as a drink. No food or other drinks are allowed inside the Palace.

- Last but not least don’t miss the “Changing of the Guard” tradition while visiting Buckingham Palace. The ceremony is held daily in summer at 11:00 am and on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, during the rest of the year. Book your guided-tour for the ceremony of “Changing of the Guard” from here.
4. Hyde Park
Hyde Park is a gem in the middle of London for both locals and tourists. Established in 16th century, it is a private hunting ground for Henry VIII, a century later it opened to public.
This huge park (140 ha) is one of the 8 Royal Parks in London (Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Richmond Park, Bushy Park, St James’s Park, The Green Park, The Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill, Greenwich Park) which are open to public.
Apart from the splendid grass area for resting and enjoying the birds’ songs, there are things in this park that should not be missed. But what this park is most famous for it, is the Speakers’ Corner. Located in the northeast of the park, this corner was used to be a place for giving free speech. Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx, and George Orwell are among the famous figures which once have had free speeches there. Nowadays it is more of a tourist attraction, yet there are days that some people gather to have free speeches.
There is also a boating lake called Serpentine where you can enjoy boating from April until the end of October.
Heading to the south of the Serpentine, you will see the Diana Memorial Fountain which was built in 2004 for commemorating Princess Diana. The artwork has 545 pieces of Cornish granite to reflect Diana’s life. During summer days, you can put your feet inside the fountain to enjoy the cold water. Before going, you can download the map of the park from here.
After exploring Hyde Park, don’t forget to head west to see Kensington Gardens too. Attached to the Hyde Park, these gardens were once, part of it. Take a walk through the gardens to see the bronze statue of Peter Pan (from the book “Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens” by J.M. Barrie).
5. British Museum
Established in the middle of the 18th century, this museum is one of the largest museums in the world. A splendid place to spend at least half day and enjoy watching more than 8 million artworks, as much as you can!
The good news is that the British Museum, like many other museums in London has no entrance fee and is free to visit and also is open almost every day of the year (except Christmas, New Year and Good Friday holidays). Now the next step is to plan your visit perfectly to get the most out of it. It is better to download the map of the British Museum to have an idea about the galleries and the whole building. There are also activities for families and kids, events, exhibitions and some special tours in the museum.
The architectural style of museum building is a Greek revival with 44 columns each 14 meters like the old temple of Athena. When you enter you will have a huge space to explore. The best way is to plan your visit beforehand according to the map or get a guided tour helping you to visit better with quite good information.
The artworks in the Museum are from pre-history to contemporary and consist of cultural, architectural, historical and many other objects from different countries. But there are works that shouldn’t be missed:
The Statue of Ramesses II: The Younger Memnon is the upper body and head of Ramses II. This Statue of almost 2.6 meters has been made with pink granite and is in the Egypt section.
The Parthenon Marbles: Originally from the temple of the Parthenon in Acropolis of Athens are a collection of Greek marble sculptures made in c. 447–438 BCE with the dimension of 75 meters. Although this masterpiece has been damaged in the Great Turkish War against the Republic of Venice, it is still one the best pieces from ancient times.
Lion Hunt of Ashurbanipal: As a symbol of protecting people and also part of kings’ sport, lion hunting was common in ancient Assyria and is depicted amazingly in this piece of art from 668-631 BC.
Rosetta Stone: With 3 scripts in 3 languages (Greek, Demotic, and Hieroglyphic) this masterpiece was like a door opened to new era to understand Egyptian hieroglyphs.
Ancient Egypt: If you have time just for visiting one section, I strongly recommend you to visit Ancient Egypt. It is very interesting watching real mummies and coffins from close and get excited by watching the rich culture in that time period.
6. Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge is very famous as its picture has been used in many postal cards as the symbol of London. This bridge was built at the end of the 19th century due to commercial growth at that time and the need for crossing the River Thames to reach the other side of London.
The bridge’s lower part has a pedestrian access which is open and free of charge. If you are lucky to catch up with the bridge’s lift time which happens when ships or boats pass, you will enjoy more your visit. Here you can check the bridge lift time. However, take into account that it can equally be very crowded.
The bridge also has two bridge towers and glass walkways (the upper part). For this part you need to buy tickets.
The experience of glass walkways is totally different, and it is worth what you pay for the ticket. You will have a unique panoramic view under your feet (42 meters) over the Thames. It is totally safe to walk across the glass walkway, but seriously do not try it if you have vertigo or acrophobia (fear or phobia of height).
To reach the top, you can either go up through 206 steps or take the elevator. Once there, do not forget to visit the Engine Rooms which were used to be the control room for lifting the bridge before 1976. After that year, it changed from coal power to electricity. You can also use the app called “Raise Tower Bridge’ App” which gives you the opportunity to watch the Thames from up there by giving a panoramic view of the bridge being raised virtually.
7. Tower of London
Built in 1078 on the north bank of the River Thames, this historic castle has had different roles in the history of the United Kingdom from prison to a place for keeping wild animals, treasury, place for the Royal Mint, a record office, and currently keeping the Crown Jewels.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site occupies a huge area of 7 hectares. The castle has 3 bailies (courtyard surrounded by curtain wall). The White Tower which is the main and the first part is located in the innermost ward. The White Tower has been surrounded by 13 towers, including the famous Bloody Tower and the Wakefield Tower. The outer wall is surrounded by the moat.
The other attraction of the castle is the Crown Jewels which are on display in the Jewel House in the Waterloo Block. The collection of more than 23,000 gemstones and crowns worn by the monarchs at the coronation ceremonies or at the opening of the Parliament.
Visiting “Yeoman Warders” who have been guarding the castle is another interesting thing to do in the Tower of London.
Do not forget to visit the prison cell of Sir Walter Raleigh in the Bloody Tower. And go to Wakefield Tower to see famous ravens.
8. Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter
If you are a person interested to movies and cinemas specially fiction ones and in particular Harry Potter series, here we are in the best place to visit! The next level is to gift a tour to your Harry Potter dear ones for their birthday. It works super good, believe me!
Opened to public in 2012 with some Harry Potter series’ cast and crew members, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter of initial idea was to preserve the thousands of artifacts used in those films and to show it to the fans. Since then the tour is one of the most visited attractions in London.
In this fantastic experience you will see two sound stages and a backlot with all original stuff including animatronic creatures and also special effects. You will also experience some activities as member of the cast did, like flying a broomstick.
The good thing is that the Studio Tour does not have an age limit so you can go with your children in any age and enjoy your visit. The visit for the children aged 4 and under is free and children should be accompanied with an adult.
A bit far from the center of London the best option is to visit this attraction with a tour.
9. Oxford Street
We have talked about historic, cultural, and cinematic places. Now is the time to talk about a place for shopping lovers.
Running for almost 2 kilometres in the middle of London with more than 300 shops, Oxford Street is the busiest shopping street in Europe. Here you have famous department stores such as John Lewis and Selfridges to name a few and all other famous brands.
Oxford Street is not just a place for stores and shopping. In this street you have all what you need, after shopping centers, what you see the most are restaurants and cafes for taking a rest and enjoying your coffee while watching people in the street.

For wifi, search for O2 Wifi on your available networks and then follow the steps to register.
To visit this street, remember the most charming time is close to Christmas because it is when the street is lighten up all over, but take into account that it can also be the most crowded time. In general, this street is open from 9 am to 9 pm Mondays thru Saturdays and from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Sundays.
To reach there you have 5 metro stations (called tube in London) in walking distance, however if you are going by personal car, booking a place online in Q-Park Oxford Street will save your life!

1o. Other Places to Visit
- St. Paul’s Cathedral: Before going check the church calendar to know the day-to-day plan. While visiting this cathedral, pay attention to the 111 meters dome which was once the tallest building in the London skyline until the 20th century or the rising of modern skyscrapers. The interior part of the dome has eight arches. Go up to the Whispering Gallery to experience the unique acoustics of the dome, and climb higher to the Stone and Golden Galleries to have an amazing view of London.
- Covent Garden: Once famous for the fruit-and-vegetable market, this district in the beating heart of London, is now very popular for locals and tourists as shopping center and refreshing area with lots of cafes and restaurants.

Best places to visit in London with kids
London has a good capacity for visiting with kids. There are many places that are suitable for going with children. Here I mention some of them in 3 categories that can be most attractive.
Museums: My always first recommendation for this part is the Natural History Museum. With the huge dinosaur skeleton in the middle of the museum, it is impossible for children not to get amazed! There are a lot of things related to life and earth that can be interesting for kids.
The other museum is the Victoria And Albert Museum that has a branch for kids. It has a massive collections of childhood equipment and toys. And of course, many activities and events for children.
Science Museum: With objects related to science and technology from past until now, can also attract many kids.
Madame Tussauds: The previous 3 museums are free but for this one you need to buy tickets. In this museum you will see the lifelike wax of famous historical figures and celebrities.

Other places: KidZania London or city of kids in a sense, is a place that your children can experience real-life skills by learning new things with entertainment. From doing a surgery as a surgeon to working as a firefighter. It is suitable for children aged 4-14, yet there are some activities for kids up to four years old.

What to see in London in 2 days
If the plan is staying 2 days in London, the itinerary would be a bit packed. Even though 2 days is not enough to see the whole beauty of the city, still is a good opportunity to visit the main landmarks.
1 The best option is to start from Buckingham Palace, if you are lucky (or plan well), you can catch up with the tradition of Changing of the Guards (The ceremony is held daily in summer at 11:00 and on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, during the rest of the year). Then move to the Westminster, it is located within a 15-minute walk to Big Ben, take a lunch close to the River Thames and after that, spend some time in the Houses of Parliament and of course Westminster Abbey. You can end your visit by watching the sunset from London Eye.
2 You can start your day from British Museum. It will take at least your morning. Then walk 15 minutes to reach Covent Garden, relax in a cafe, try the famous British fish & chips in some restaurant, take a look at shops around and then move toward the National Gallery. End your visit by eating an ice cream in Trafalgar Square. If you are not a museum person you can easily replace this plan with day 3, 4 or 5.
What to see in London in 3 days
You already have the plan for two days, for the 3rd day if you feel the itinerary of the previous two days is too much, you can visit some of them on 3rd day. If the first two day are ok and you handled visiting them all, so let’s continue with the new places in 3rd day according to the plan below.
3 Start your day by visiting Tower Bridge. Spend the rest of your morning in Tower of London (5-minute walk from previous place). And then take a cruise to see the landmarks from River Thames. In the afternoon, go to Oxford Street, enjoy the vibe of this street with shopping centers and cafes. Now you need to relax a bit after walking all the way in Oxford Street. You are lucky to have Hyde Park just around the corner! Relax and enjoy last drops of sun in this amazing park or if you are interested take a boat over Serpentine!
What to see in London in 5 days
Now that we know you have more days in London, I would suggest the day trips for the last two days.
4 As I said before for this day, I think it is good you make a day trip. And here are the options for a perfect day trip that you can choose between them according to your interest: Greenwich or Windsor Castle or Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Each of these places need at least a half-day visit not mentioning the travel to and from which a one whole day in total.
5 This day is for resting and enjoying and to catch up with the thing you have seen before and you like to visit again. In case you would like to visit more places, here are my recommendations for you. Visiting Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum which are very close to each other, is a suitable option.
London Pass provides you the facility to enter many sightseeing places in London. If you ask if it is worth it or not, I should say it depends on your plan. If you are going to visit a lot of things that include paying entrance fee, I think it is worth it. Here you can buy the London Pass. It offers access to over 80 attractions in London like Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, The Shard, Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour (valid for one whole day), cruise down the River Thames, Kensington Palace to name a few.
- You save a lot of queues at entrance of museums and other tourist attractions.
- It includes the entrance to most important places.
- You can use it for public transport.
- It is much cheaper than you buying separate tickets.
- You can buy the London Pass for 2, 3, 4 or 6 days, which starts counting from the moment you use it for the first time.
One tip: if you really want to take advantage of it, first organise the itinerary you are going to do and what you want to visit. If not, you will go crazy trying to see everything.
Public Transport in London
Transport network in London is quite developed and works very well. The whole transport network is an integrated system under supervision of an authority called “Transport for London” or TfL. It includes bus, underground (known as the Tube in London), Docklands Light Railway (DLR), overground, TfL rail, tram, taxis and much more.
There are three types of transport passes: Oyster Card, London Travelcard, and Contactless Payment Card. For those who live in London Oyster card is the cheapest option and it works almost in all of the mentioned mobility options. The Contactless Payment Card is more or less the same as Oyster card with the difference that is not specific to London public transport and you can use your debit or credit card.
The London Travelcard allows you to use public transport in a special period of time like 1 day, 7 days, 1 month, or 1 year. So if you are going to handle visiting many places, for example 1 day or 7 days, this is an option. However, I still think Oyster Card is a more handy option.
The underground operates in 6 zones, from central London (zone 1) to outside (zone 6). You will be more charged by crossing more zones. The overground system is similar to the underground, except that is much newer and of course works on the ground.
DLR is a totally automated (no driver) rail system that operates in the docklands area of London. It connects London City Airport to the rest of the tube network.
The tram works in south London, from Wimbledon to Croydon and Beckenham. The tram only has four lines so not covering too much but works very well in the covered area.
Bus is the most used public transport in London as the bus system is extended all over London and the fare is quite cheap compared to other transport facilities.
London has a cable car service called Emirates Air Line and it works across the River Thames, from Greenwich to the Royal Victoria Dock.
With having River Thames across the London, it is normal that there are some river boats called Thames Clippers working through it to transfer passengers.
Some tips for using public transport in London:
- First of all, it is good to know that the Tube or London Underground and DLR are always free for children aged under 11 and there are also some discounts for those from 11 to 18 years old and for those who study in London (with an ID card).
- London underground has two different prices for peak and normal hours. In peak hours the tube is more expensive, and it includes 06:30 to 09:29 and 16:00 to 18:59.
- There is a system called Hopper fare which allows you to take a £1.50 bus/tram ticket and then use another bus/tram for free within an hour of starting your trip.
When is the best time to visit London?
London is a cloudy and rainy city. Because of this, it is very green. But for travelers it can be annoying. Normally during June and July it is less rainy, to avoid the hotness of summer maybe May and June are perfect months for traveling to London with less rain and mild temperature. However, you should consider that in this period of time, there are more tourists and hotels are in their highest rate.
Winter is quite cold. However, visiting London in Christmas is pretty interesting, of course if you do not mind the crowd specially those who do holiday shopping in Oxford Street.
There are also some special days/events that I think can be interesting visiting London in these dates.
- Shrove Tuesday or Pancake day: It is the day in February or March preceding Ash Wednesday which in this day, people in some Commonwealth countries like United Kingdom celebrate it by eating pancakes.
- London Marathon: The London Marathon or better known as Virgin Money London Marathon is held every spring (normally in April). It is an interesting event that you can participate through registering or just watching thousands of people running.
- The London Pride: This festival is held each year in summertime (July) alongside other big cities in the world to celebrate love for all people. Gay Pride nowadays turned to be a tourist attraction with different and colourful plans.
- London Coffee Festival: For coffee lovers, this festival is amazing. Holding in April every year, in this event you not only drink different types of coffee but also learn a lot about coffee and coffee art.
What should I take on my trip to London?
Attention: A raincoat, umbrella and shoes suitable for rainy weather is a must for a trip to London.
In general, for walking, better to have your comfy shoes. It’s inevitable not to walk a lot in London, especially in Oxford Street, the huge museums and alongside the River Thames.
Always try to have a light backpack to avoid tiredness, with a bottle of water and maybe a prepared sandwich while you are in a middle of a visit and you feel hungry.
London temperature in general is cold, to stay in safe side, is better to always wear warm clothes. It rarely gets very hot, only 2 or 3 weeks in the middle of summer.
Last but not least: You are in a city which is always full of tourist. Be very careful with your personal stuff.
