London: attractions

London needs little introduction. With such a wealth of legendary attractions, from art and culture to food and history, you'll have no trouble filling your trip with some of the world's most popular tourist sights and attractions.

London has plenty of attractions for you to visit during your break. See the city from the skies – with a trip on the London Eye or The Shard – or even from the Thames, on a memorable river cruise with a three-course meal and champagne. 

Get up close and personal with your favourite celebrities at Madame Tussauds, sneak a peek at Her Majesty’s Crown Jewels at Buckingham Palace. Experience the gruesome thrills of the London Dungeons or Tower of London, while those after a more relaxing day can amble through the beautiful Kew Gardens – often hosting educational events and fun workshops for kids.

London: shopping

  • Arguably the shopping capital of the world, it’s hard to know where to start with London. From upmarket districts such as Marylebone High Street or Chelsea’s King’s Road to hidden gems tucked away in bohemian Soho, you’ll be utterly spoiled for choice. 
  • A walk down bustling Oxford Street or Regent Street will find you at the heart of high street shopping. If you’re a lover of all things vintage, head to Spitalfields and Brick Lane – the hip heart of London, with quirky shops selling retro records, furniture and clothes. 
  • If visiting on a weekend, London’s markets are great places to pick up bargains. On a Saturday, Portobello Road turns into row upon row of world stalls selling everything from trinkets and antiques to old records and gourmet foods.

London: where to eat and drink

On a shoestring: The Golden Hind - touted as the best fish and chips in London, or Princi - delicious mix-and-match Italian food in the heart of Soho.

Middle of the road: Rainforest Cafe - great for kids; a tropical hideaway in London's West End which brings together the sights and sounds of the jungle, or Brasserie Zadel - an authentic Parisian brasserie serving delicious, inexpensive French food.

Bigger budgets: the OXO Tower Restaurant - a modern British restaurant with great views of the city, or The Ritz - perfect for a special occasion, high tea at The Ritz is worth every penny.

London: for free

Wile away hours in world-class museums such as the V&A, the Natural History and the British Museum, or take in one of London’s many events and exhibitions at the Barbican Centre or Somerset House.

Must-see things to do in London include climbing the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral or witnessing the changing of guards at Buckingham Palace.

Those who like to be at the heart of the action can enter the Houses of Parliament and watch live debates, while photo-takers can catch a great view of Big Ben from the Westminster Bridge on the banks on the River Thames.
