London is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest cities, and visiting the vast array of tourist attractions can be a somewhat overwhelming task.
However, if this idea is on your bucket list, then there is no reason why it can’t be done.
Defining your list
Of course, the time frame is all important, and fitting them all into a 48 hour weekend will be more challenging than allowing yourself a full seven days of exploration.
Cost is also undoubtedly a factor, but travel passes which cover both overland and underground are available.
The first decision to be made is which of the many attractions do you wish to see?
It may be better to have as many as possible on your list, just in case some of them are too crowded, then you always have an alternative to choose instead.
Top of everyone’s bucket list would be Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Tower of London and Madame Tussauds.
Other attractions could include the London Dungeon, the Churchill War Rooms, the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Houses of Parliament.
Setting time in advance
Planning in advance and doing a bit of research will uncover discount ticket offers, and multi-attraction passes.
The cost of each of these attractions will soon mount up, so make the most of any savings you can find.
Study London maps before you go and plan a route, which doesn’t have you zig-zagging all over the capital.
Allow plenty of time for breaks, perhaps booking a lunch in a restaurant by the Thames to make the occasion extra special.
Visiting all of London’s main tourist attractions will leave you with many happy memories and photographic opportunities around every corner.
You might actually find that you have missed out some of the less well-known attractions, which gives you the perfect excuse to come back to the capital again.
