5 Day Trip by Foot and Tube In London
D 1
  • Tower Bridge

    Worth a visit considering this is one of the iconic places to see. If you are interested in architecture or history might be worth going up the bridge for which you need to purchase tickets. Regardless, you can still learn much about it online. In my opinion it's not worth going up as you don't get any really good and unhindered views of the London city from up top. A nice spot to take photos is on the side of the bridge which leads up to the the tower museum.
  • Tower of London

    This piece of history is a must-see for anyone who appreciates medieval history or the Cousin's War.
  • Big Ben

    Can't be missed when visiting London. One of the exit tunnels from the Westminster underground station led us to the surface right underneath the tower, it was awesome. Do not miss an opportunity to see Big Ben from all sides and at different times of day. It is lit well at night glowing gold and green.
  • Buckingham Palace

  • Wallace Collection

    I loved this museum. It was so beautiful, such an amazing collection. The weapons and armor collection was truly impressive.
D 2
  • Victoria and Albert Museum

    My favourite museum in London. The Victoria and Albert Museum is the world's greatest museum of decorative arts and design with amazingly extensive and diverse collections. For an art lover it is a place worth visiting many times - you will always find something new to see and admire.
  • Kensington Palace

    Kensington Palace is a Royal Residence and only a small part of it is on available to tour. The public part of the palace is split into four parts (and the gift shop), the Queen State Apartments, the King State Apartments, Victoria Revealed, and a temporary exhibit.
  • Kensington Gardens

    A variety of flowering plants, large fish, and waterfowl inhabit the ponds, all of which have fountains that spray continuously from dawn 'till dusk. The perfect place to settle down with a good book.
  • Albert Memorial

  • Cleopatra's Needle

    A gift from an Egyptian ruler and nearly 3500 years old this ancient obelisk a sentinel presence on the Thames. Indifferent to the passage of time and an ironic counterpoint to the Shell Mex House clock ( London's largest) marking the passage of time across the road. Certainly worth a peek.
D 3
  • The Regent's Park

    You can walk around the inside track of the park in under an hour. Very peaceful; a world away from the bustle of the city. Lovely rose garden in the centre, when in bloom. Can see the camels in London zoo from the path. Check out the boating lake and various coffee shops.
  • Hyde Park, London

  • St James's Park

    The park is very pretty. You can walk from Buckingham Palace to Whitehall/Westminster area through this park. It's quite peaceful. The geese and ducks near the Eastern edge of the park are experienced at working the tourists for food. It was hilarious. One of them would walk by squawking at people while the other stood a foot back and just stared.
  • Millennium Bridge

    The bridge design is quite unique with the beams and support system established below the walkway providing a largely undisturbed view of the river and surrounding area.
  • Monument to the Great Fire of London

    The monument offers some pretty impressive views of London, with a very reasonable entry fee. The 311 and steps could be a challenge for the less able, but it is well worth the climb.
  • Leadenhall Market

    Beautiful historical market in the city of london mixed in between glass sky scrapers. Lots of nice places to eat and some shopping ..
D 4
  • Wellington Arch

    Quite interesting displays on the Battle of Waterloo. Worth visiting if you're a member of English Heritage to go inside the arch and there are views from the top.
  • Piccadilly Circus

    Awesome touristy place to visit. Lots to do and places to eat. Definitely worth coming at night.
  • Banqueting House

    Well worth a visit both to look at the painted ceiling and also to investigate Stuart history.
  • The Cenotaph, Whitehall

  • Parliament Square

  • Westminster Bridge

    Iconic bridge in the very heart of London! Good view over the Thames and just a short walk from St James Park and Buckingham Palace. I would recommend to any tourists who want to see the touristy, heart of London.
D 5
  • Horse Guards Parade

  • Houses of Parliament

    If you're visiting London you're likely going to see Parliament, you may just not know it. Parliament is housed in Westminster Palace, also home to Big Ben. The Palace is really cool and I recommend walking on all sides if you have time. Pay close attention to the architecture and especially the detail on the massive doors.
  • Westminster Abbey

    Another absolutely beautiful London attraction. Bounds of history like royal weddings, funerals etc. And stunning architecture.
  • Green Park

  • Admiralty Arch

    Great area, next to Trafalgar Square. Walk through to get onto The Mall and head up to Buckingham Palace. Nice walk with a lot to see on the way.
  • Trafalgar Square

    Huge square, two beautiful fountain, a very high column to celebrate admiral Nelson who died in the battle of Trafalgar. There are four awesome black lions at its base. From here you can enter the National Gallery.
