10 Must See London Attractions

It is a veritable task to summarise the top 10 attractions London has to offer the visitor. However, I have attempted to do so. This is the definitive list of the 10 most exhilarating attractions you can experience in London:

1. St Paul’s Cathedral

This eminent Cathedral has dominated the City landscape, the financial core of London, since it was first built. The recently unveiled Oculus exhibition is bound to captivate.

2. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!

The great collector Robert Ripley amassed many extraordinary artefacts from all over the globe: at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, they are all under one roof, and sure to elicit your awe. Astoundingly enough, these artefacts include the manuscripts of Agatha Christie, a piece of the Berlin Wall, and much more.

3. The Tower of London

The Tower of London has held a vibrant and often equally disturbing past. Explore the White Tower and view the remarkable Crown Jewels.

4. ZSL London Zoo

ZSL London, founded over 180 years ago, is the world’s oldest scientific zoo.  Home to 750 different species of animals, it will, without question, keep both adults and children well entertained.

5. Westminster Abbey

This illustrious landmark is not simply architecturally stunning. Westminster Abbey has also been the venue for exceptionally momentous events in the UK, including the burial of Sir Winston Churchill, and, most recently, of course, Will and Kate’s wedding.

6. The London Eye

Fly high on the London Eye, which has attracted a vast amount of visitors since it opened. Become enraptured by singular sweeping views over the most eminent landmarks of this grandiose city.

7. Sealife London Aquarium

The SEA LIFE London Aquarium is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of global marine life and is the jewel in the crown of the 28 SEA LIFE attractions in the UK and Europe. Ensure you view the latest addition to the aquarium: a host of enchanting gentoo penguins.

8. Madame Tussauds

A visit to Madame Tussauds is vital for any visitor: it holds distinguished status. Madame Tussauds has been making wax figures for over 150 years, and its 14 interactive zones will not fail to captivate.

9. Shakespeare’s Globe

Explore the Globe, the renowned home of Shakespeare’s plays. Perhaps view the Globe’s thrilling exhibition which will take you on a journey into Elizabethan London and the influence of incredibly gifted Shakespeare, whose influence on contemporary culture cannot be overvalued.

10. Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is absolutely the major London attraction that never fails to gather more visitors than any other. It is architecturally glorious, and its State Rooms are truly spectacular.
