Visiting London can be an overwhelming experience. It’s so large, versatile, and busy – what are you supposed to do first? While you could probably just wonder around and find a plethora of things to do, these attractions shouldn’t be missed:

  • The London Eye

The London Eye is one of the tallest structures in all of London, and you can hop on and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the place! It really is a breathtaking view, and a fantastic photo opportunity. Don’t miss a ride in one of the pods, it can be especially magical at night when everything is lit up.

  • The Tate Modern

The Tate Modern is a fascinating gallery full of artwork. For those who don’t think they’re ‘that into art’, visit this gallery. I bet you’ll change your mind! If you don’t, you haven’t lost anything as it’s free anyway. Some of the secret hotels of London are nearby, so you don’t need to travel far. This is a great activity for visiting on a budget.

  • Camden Lock Market

Camden lock market is like stepping into a whole other world. The stalls are all unique and intriguing, with vintage clothes and jewelry being sold from all angles. You can get some great bargains here, and delicious food.

  • Kentish Town

Kentish town is similar to Camden, except some say it’s better. Full of vintage stores, this is a great place to go if you prefer your purchases with a bit of life in them.

  • Buckingham Palace

Buckingham palace makes for some excellent photo opportunities, and you might even see the Queen! It’s a true sight to behold, so pay a visit if you haven’t before.

  • A Theatre Show

There are theatre shows by the dozen in London. The thing I love most about these shows is that each one has their own special theatre dedicated to it. You can buy all kinds of cool merchandise before settling down to watch the show. It doesn’t matter if you don’t sit at the front either; you still get a great view!

  • Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is a place you can go and have pictures with your favourite waxwork celebrities. It’s definitely worth doing once. Make sure you go through the new ‘Scream’ attraction if you like to get your heart racing.

  • Oxford Street Shopping

Love to shop? There’s no better place than Oxford Street. The size of the Topshop will make your mouth water if you’re a fashionista. There are multiple Pandora stores too for all of your jewellery needs.

  • Harrods

Harrods is a ridiculously expensive department store, but you must go there even if it’s just to window shop. They have violin players and everything!

  • Big Ben

Big ben is the affectionate nickname of the bell inside of the big clock tower. It’s over 90 metres long, making it a great attraction when you’re in the area.

If you see these 10 attractions, you’ll have a great trip. If you don’t, don’t worry; you’ll find other great things to do. London is the perfect place for an adventure!
