Are you thinking about visiting the UK for your next holiday? If so, then where better to start than the glorious, history shrouded capital, the top 5 attractions in London. Not only is this city one of the most cosmopolitan in the world, but it also has a lot of different attractions; markets, gardens, palaces, and museums to visit. True, there could be a crowd, but just at certain spots, you have to plan well and book early to avoid being squeezed as you go about. But I think that comes with the charm London has – the people. Below are the top 5 attractions that I recommend whether you go solo in London or with the family.
This attraction is the last surviving tea clipper which was badly damaged by fire in 2007. Once on board, you can experience the ship’s history – which has been over 140 years. This is ship is very unique to London and is a fantastically fun museums to visit with the family.
This Zoo has been opened since 1847 and is home to more than 760 species – many of which are endangered. You are able to witness animal feeding sessions and zoo keepers’ talks, which is really interesting if you are an animal enthusiast. There is a rain forest section if you want to feel something tropical.
Witness the huge variety of fish and sea life from all over the globe. The Shark Walk is a great feature which this aquarium has. Expect to see stingrays, sharks and piranhas. It is right next to the London Eye, so you can combine the two trips if you want.
Come and see a show at the original Globe Theatre, where William Shakespeare had many of his plays performed. It unfortunately was destroyed in 1613 during a performance, however 400 years later it was rebuilt. If you want cheap tickets though, expect to stand.
If you want to witness something spectacular then head towards the London Eye and really experience the view of London. There are many London Bed and Breakfast rentals that you can book for your holiday here, especially around the London Eye and South Bank region.
