It won’t be easy to narrow down just five places for you to visit in London, England but we’ll try! We’re sure you’re familiar with Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, and more. However while you should check those places out, there is more to London than just the top attractions. Yes, really.
You’re looking at one of London’s top free attractions, the British Museum. Most consider this a top museum, the British Museum gives viewers both architectural beauty and houses a massive collection of artifacts and world art. Wear comfy shoes though, it’s a huge tour.
Tower of London:
Did you know that the Tower of London is one of four UNESCO World Heritage Sites in London? Moreover, it is London’s most popular attraction. Throughout history, the tower has been used for many things, including a royal palace, an armory, a prison, an execution chamber, barracks, zoo, and even a jewel house. With more than 1,000 years of history, the Tower of London has a lot to offer.
Surely you’ve heard of Buckingham Palace? Let’s just assume that you have otherwise my head might explode. As the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace has more than 50,000 guests attend royal events and ceremonies. Visitors are not usually allowed in but you can check the website, you might just be lucky.
Each year, Westminster Abbey hosts more than a million visitors – all of whom agree that the price and long lines are worth it. The 700-year-old building is home, as the official website states, “Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains.”
Just like the buzz surrounding New York’s Time Square, Piccadilly Circus has the same level of jubilee. All of your shopping, clubbing or bar hopping can be done here. What’s most special is that here is where you feel all the energy of Londoners around you. And before we forget, Piccadilly Circus isn’t an actual circus, although there are many travelers who think it is. Instead, the name simply refers to the circle.
