To know more about this spectacular city, you need to visit the Museum of London. As one of the best of its kind, this place would transport you back to the times when the city was just an ordinary metropolis. Artifacts from the ancient times, as well as exhibits and galleries depicting the stories of yesterday, are all displayed.

A huge Ferris wheel, it is; but for many people, it is a window to the soul of London. Standing 443 feet-tall, it has oval capsules that have glass walls to provide people with spectacular views of the city. Basically, it is not just an amusement ride. It is an observation wheel.

6) Buckingham Palace

Yes, there really is a London Bridge and it is not falling down, as how the old nursery rhyme literally suggested. It is one of the most important icons in the city, and should be visited.

8) Tower Bridge and Thames River

There is no better water/structure spectacle in London than this. Stunning (particularly at night), the Tower Bridge is a suspension bridge that has become an icon of London.

The city is densely commercialized so it is a breeze to find a lodge, restaurant or bar, or shopping mall to complete your tour and thereby maximize your air tickets to London. Don’t waste the opportunity. Not everybody is given the chance to explore this stunning city.
