      Disappointed in the Tate Modern?! That just can’t be! It’s one of my favorite museums in the whole world!

    I’m heading to London in Aug. We only have two days in the city. What is your “must do’s?” Do you recommend a bus tour? Just trying to get the most of my time. I can’t wait!!

      Two days isn’t much time. If you’re after museums, check out the major museums in South Kensington. I don’t typically like bus tours, but London is huge and if you want to quickly catch the sights, it’s probably got a decent chance of giving you a good overview.

    Thanks for the information – in planning stages of a trip right now. I couldn’t imagine the logistics involved if there wasn’t the internet!

    I’ve lived in London for 10 years now and my personal favourite (especially in summer) is to take a nice long walk in the South Bank from Tower Bridge along the river to Waterloo and see the amazing Tower Bridge, take a rest on one of the benches near Tate Modern and then continue to Waterloo where you’ll see a lot of street performers and artists.

    I really enjoy your post and all attraction that you mention in your blog is really awesome. Well London can be pretty expensive at times and it’d be impossible for me to determine a budget without knowing what types of sightseeing you plan to do. Due to that I preferred multi day bus tours for comfortable and inseparable journey. It is best for family trip also.

    Very interesting to read. I’m Thinking of visiting England and i wonder how expensive would it be for a week with budget accommodation. Since I earn in Thai Bahts I would love to get any suggestions on planning the trip. Thanks

    Seems like there are a whole lot of bridges in London, maybe that is where the old song comes from. That market looks pretty cool. It is hard to beat a good fresh market. Thanks for sharing!

    All of the attractions mentioned in this article are within easy walking distance of each other – The City of London is only one square mile in size which is why it’s sometimes referred to as The Square Mile.

    Looking to save a bit of money when visiting London? So many tourists opt for the paper based Travelcard. It’s important to note that Oyster fares are considerably cheaper than paper ticket fares on London Underground.

    I recommend you pick up an Oyster Card at the Underground station at Heathrow or the DLR station at London City Airport. If you fly into Gatwick, Stanstead or Luton airports (the stations for these airports are outside of the Oyster network) then pick up an Oyster card at the first tube station you go through. If you’re only going to be in London for a few days (ie: less than 7 days) then add on sufficient money that covers you for the number of zones you’re likely to commute in (for most tourists zone 1 & 2 are sufficient) for each day you’re in London plus about £5 extra for the extra trip from & to the airport.

    If you’re in London for 7 or more days then go for a 7-Day zones 1 & 2 Travelcard and some cash to cover any ‘out-of zone travel’.

    Oyster has daily price capping so if you make lots of pay as you go journeys in one day, you won’t pay more than the price of an equivalent Day Travelcard.

    I haven’t been to London since I was 8 so I would love to return. Some of these attractions were new to me too. I have never heard of the Clink Museum.

    London was the first place I lived abroad, and you point out why it’s so great: as a teen I was still able to navigate it and hit all the major sights!

    I personally think that the British Museum should be at least top 5. Best museum in the world, yo!

    • Adam
      6 September 2013

      Oh yes – London’s museums are definitely among the world’s best. This list is just for the City of London, though. Stay tuned for an upcoming post about museums!

      Oh I definitely agree. It’s an incredible museum! This list is just for the area in and around the City of London though :)

    The Clink looks like fun. I can’t believe I missed that during all the visits I’ve made to London!

    The view from the Tate Modern’s terrace is phenomenal.

    The Tower Bridge is much better-looking than the Millennium Bridge, especially at night. I hope that the Tower Bridge continues to be the one that’s perceived as being iconic of the city. :)

    great picks for places – sadly there is just too much to cover in London in a few days

    • Adam
      3 September 2013

      You’re definitely right about that Rebecca. London is so sprawling and there are so many things to see, it would take me a lifetime to discover it all! Hopefully this is a good enough introduction to the major tourist sites though.

    This was great information on places to see in Central London. I love hearing about peoples trips and vacations. By reading posts about traveling I learn a lot about the different cultures, and about what I need to see when I do get the chance to visit. So I love when I find blogs like this one!

      Glad to hear that Patti. London is such a great city and there are hundreds of things to do, but thankfully on my last visit these things were all nearby so it made the decision-making easy!
