My Top 10 London Sites

Top 10 Tourist Must Sees while in London Town . . .

  1. Buckingham Palace - a classic must see if you haven't been to London before. Who doesn't want to see the royal digs? Side Note: the Queen and the Royal Family don't really live there.

  2. Harrods for shopping and lunch - this can take all day, this massive department store takes over an entire block. Be prepared to throw down $$$, this place is not cheap. For a more affordable shopping experience - shop on Oxford Street.

  3. Bike or picnic at Hyde Park - close to Harrods.

  4. Thames Clipper for a water viewpoint of London Town – you can stop at all the tourist hot spots, which can include the Globe Theater. I opted for the sea view route since I didn't go on a double Decker bus.

  5. London Eye - be prepared to stand in a major line if you want to go on it, I decided to grab an ice cream instead while walked around taking pictures.

  6. Walk the London Tower Bridge and explore the jewels - highly recommend paying for the ticket to the top to get an aerial view.

  7. Eat and shop at Covent Garden.

  8. Watch the sunset from Sky Garden or the Shard – definitely a highlight of my trip, 100% recommend this!

  9. Explore Spitifield and Shoreditch for more of a emo/artist local taste.

  10. Westminster Abbey, House of Parliament, Guards Building - typical building hot spots. Can see all of this in a day if you don't want to go inside of all of them and just get an outside perspective.

Food Recommendations:

  1. Rosewood for Tea Time or any of their onsite restaurants/bars - fantastic!

  2. Coppa Club Restaurant with London Tower Bridge views, perfect for lunch.

  3. Aqua at the Shard - 100% suggest sunset reservations for dinner.

  4. Sky Garden - my favorite aerial bar views of the city.

  5. Burough Market - by far the best farmer's market I've ever been to, great for grabbing lunch as you explore the city.

  6. I didn't make it here, but I also recommend Sketch - you can come here for dinner, but afternoon tea is what The Gallery has become famous for.

  7. The Ritz is also world renowned for their afternoon tea.
