With the must-see sights of the city spanning cathedrals, music venues and galleries, a lifetime wouldn't be long enough to take in everything London has to offer.
Amazing 7 Must-see London Attractions exclusively for you!
1, Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens is the largest UNESCO World Heritage Site in London and holds the world's most diverse collections of botany and mycology. Kew is home to some 30,000 types of flowers and plants and 14,000 trees, and its workers lead the field of botanical science on an ongoing basis. Therefore, don't skip the newly renovated Temperate House–Victoria's largest glasshouse in the world.
2, St Paul's Cathedral,
A cathedral you must visit and one of London's most recognisable sights, has been a feature of the city's skyline for over 300 years. Designed in Sir Christopher Wren's English Baroque style, St Paul's is the City of London's highest point, the second largest church building in the United Kingdom (after Liverpool Cathedral) and a Grade I building. Doors open from 8.30am for sightseeing.
3, London Eye
No wonder the London Eye is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK–it's the perfect place to get a bird's eye view of the contemporary architecture of the city, including The Shard and the Walkie Talkie. It was the world's highest Ferris wheel when it opened in 2000, but in 2006 China's 160-meter-high (524-feet) Nanchang star eventually surpassed the giant structure.
4, London Zoo
More than 750 animals from around the world have made their home to the London Zoo. It is the oldest scientific zoo in the world, with the menagerie of animals that used to live at the Tower of London being transferred back in the 19th century to the zoo collection. Self-guided safari tours provide animal presentations.
5, ArcelorMittal Orbit
Built in 2012 to mark the Olympics, which took place mostly in East London, this eye-catching structure crafted by Anish Kapoor. The sculpture and observation tower of ArcelorMittal Orbit is situated in Stratford's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and is the tallest sculpture in the UK. It is also now the longest and tallest tunnel slide in the world, due to the introduction of a slide in 2016.
6, Tower of London
London's Gothic Tower was built in 1078 by William the Conqueror, and has played a pivotal role in the British monarchy for almost 1,000 years. Once a palace, it was used as a gaol for a few years (before she became a queen, Elizabeth I also made a stint here). It's also the Royal Mint, but it's the Crown Jewels home today.
7, Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge today is a beloved London landmark remembered worldwide, but the bridge's initial reception was negative. Built between 1886 and 1894, the Tower Bridge was built to relieve traffic congestion on the roads, while the bascules ensured that ships could still further upriver access the London docks. Orange, white and blue paint have been applied to the Queen's Silver J bridge.
Visit the British Museum, The Shard building, Buckingham place are very stunning and historical, while Oxford street good for shopping souvenirs to take back home!
