You really don’t have to look very hard to find some of the London attractions that will suit your needs. No matter what your personal tastes are, London really does have something for everyone. Being the largest city in Europe, it really does cater for all sorts of people and their cultures. Travelling around London is actually quite easy, as it has one of the most advanced underground systems of any city in the world. So it is actually quite possible to see many London attractions in a day, as getting from one side of the city to the other can be done in a matter of minutes just by taking the tube.
Buckingham Palace is always on top of the list for a place to visit in London. It is open to the public for many days of the year you can have an official tour to see where the Queen lives. There is really some fantastic architecture and art to be viewed in the palace and it is well worth a day trip.
Since the opening of the London Eye, which is a huge wheel with various compartments for people to sit in, it is now very easy to get a look at the whole city from one place. Once you reach the top of the eye, you can literally see for miles and miles and get a good bearing on where all London attractions are. This is relatively cheap and will last between 15 to 30 minutes. Depending on the season and the weather, you may have to queue for a while to get on the attraction but it is well worth it in the end.
The houses of Parliament and Big Ben are also a large attraction that must be seen in London. Big Ben is actually the name of the bell inside the large clock tower. You can get great views of the Houses of Parliament from Parliament Square or often a better choice is to get a view from the River Thames. This will get you away from the busy streets and give you more time to enjoy the sights that London has to offer.
