With its peerless history and fascinating array of modern attractions, it's no wonder London is one of the world's most popular travel destinations. But with so many amazing sights to choose from, your London city break could benefit from a little forward planning to ensure you don't miss out.
One of London's most popular attractions can also be an ideal way to gain an overview of the city from above. The famous London Eye takes passengers on an aerial journey over the centre of the city, where you'll have the chance to see various significant landmarks and take some of the best photos of your trip.
Not all of London's attractions are so ultra-modern, of course, as the city is well known for its long and colourful history. You'll have plenty of opportunities to visit well-preserved historical buildings during your visit, including the Tower of London which dates back almost a thousand years. This mighty fortress in the centre of the city offers a revealing and often grisly insight into the London of centuries past, from the dingy dungeon to the splendour of the Crown Jewels, and is close to other key sights such as Tower Bridge.
The Royal Family themselves are a major draw for visitors to London, and heading to Buckingham Palace is an essential item on many peoples' travel itineraries. You can also visit the final resting places of British monarchs and many of Britain's best known historical figures at Westminster Abbey, one of London's most spectacular churches.
If you're keen to learn more about British history, a visit to the British Museum will offer the most comprehensive experience imaginable, as well as featuring impressive collections from other countries, such as Egypt and Greece.
