The Best Sights to See in London

London is full of different spots you have to visit when you're in the capital and a lot to see whilst doing so but we're at hand to narrow down the best spots you must go to when in the Big Smoke.

Big Ben in the Big City

Why not go visit one of the most iconic landmarks across the country that is Big Ben and soak in the view? We can't see a reason as to why you wouldn't.

Big Ben is actually the name of the bell within the tower but the whole tower itself has become known by the same name. It's 150 years old and has rarely ever stopped. When the whole tower was completed back in 1859, it was the world's largest and most accurate four-faced chiming clock, which is pretty impressive and a nice bit of history. Nowadays, it's a massive tourist attraction with thousands flocking to the scene yearly to take a picture with it.

Buckingham Palace

This is one of the most important attractions in the city and the whole of the United Kingdom. It's where the Royals live and features an insane 775 rooms. Who needs that many rooms? The Queen, we guess.

It's a great idea to visit this palace as it is soaked in history and British culture. It resides in Westminster, the political and financial centre of the city. Throughout the year there is different opportunities to see different things at the palace so make sure you take a look at the schedule online to see what is happening.

Madame Tussauds

London is home to one of the famous Madame Tussauds locations and it is stocked full of realistic waxworks of famous figures such as the Royal Family, Barack Obama and even David Beckham. If you love famous people, artwork and taking the odd selfie then get yourself down to Madame Tussauds for a wonderful experience.

The Gherkin

An odd name for a big sight to see, isn't it? It's an odd-looking sculpture too, standing as a pretty distinct glass and metal structure right in the city. It's incredibly prominent in the London skyline and it is another one that selfie lovers can get on board with, providing a perfect backdrop for your photos.

The name actually comes from its shape being very similar to that of the actual vegetable. It's quite a distinctive design and one you need to see.

Olympic Park

The London 2012 Olympic Games were a monumental and memorable occasion for the world and the United Kingdom. A lot of big moments happened in 2012, such as Mo Farah becoming the first Brit to win the 10,000 metres and the Brownlee Brothers taking gold and bronze in the triathlon. And the park is still there, and it is a great sight to see when in the capital.

Head there and soak in the sporting history of when Team GB won the hearts of the nation in their own back yard. Take a camera or a smartphone too.

Trafalgar Square

Another massive sight to visit when in London. This one is a lovely square packed full of stuff to look at and things to do. The square is host to some wonderful landmarks including King George IV's statue and Nelsons Column as well as a few fountains and who doesn't love a good fountain?

Not only that, there is some really nice places to eat and you could even visit the National Gallery whilst you're there too.

The London Eye

Another pretty impressive structure is the London Eye, which is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel. The structure stands at 135 metres and is a global icon. The experience is breath-taking as it shows you a 360-degree view of the most famous landmarks across London.

Equipped with 32 capsules for visitors to sit in, the Eye will lift you high enough to see 40 kilometres across the city. It's truly spectacular to see.

Westminster Abbey

If you're into your history, then this one is a must. Westminster Abbey is steeped in British history. It is a 700-year-old gothic building and is a large royal church and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs.

The Abbey sees over one million visitors a year and just looking at it, you can see why.

These are the main attractions we think you should visit when in London but don't let this list tie you down. There is so much on offer. Not only does the city have these very impressive tourist attractions, it's a city full of life. Whether you're after some wonderful food, very exciting shows or some sports, London has everything you could wish for. If you're just thinking of coming to London, let this list be an encouragement to do so.
