235 Popular Attractions in London

The capital of England and the United Kingdom, London’s history reaches back to before the Roman Empire. The city is full of both historical and modern wonders.

Top Attractions

Big Ben is the icon that represents London to everyone, but Big Ben is actually the bell, while the Tower that we all recognize is actually the Elizabeth Tower. Behind the Tower is Westminster Abbey, one of the most amazing pieces of history in the city. Since 1066, this Abbey has seen the coronation, weddings and funerals of most of the monarchs of Britain. Many are buried here.

Castles

London has a number of castles that can be visited. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest castle still occupied in the world and the gardens alone are worth a visit. Kensington Palace, Diana’s home during her marriage to Prince Charles is a popular place to visit and often has displays about the ‘People’s Princess’. The Royal Mews are just up the road and offer something a wee bit different – the royal carriages. You have to love the Gold State Coach. The Banqueting House has a ceiling that cannot be beaten. Lie on a cushion to admire the beauty of this masterpiece. See the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.

Kids & Family

Take the kids to see the ships of yesteryear. The Golden Hinde, then the Cutty Sark. After seeing the old clipper, walk across the Thames River in the old tunnel. Then see a more modern ship, the Belfast near the Tower Bridge. The London Eye will give them something to talk about for days!

Day Tours
