1. The Big Ben
This one is pretty obvious and one not to miss if you’re planning a
2. Hotel Chocolat
No, it’s not a hotel. It is a British chocolatier and cocoa grower. They make really tasty chocolates. If you like me are a chocolate lover then do pay Hotel Chocolat a visit (there’s a Hotel Chocolat along Regent Street) when you visit London. You won’t regret it!
3. British Museums
The British Museum is located in the Bloomsbury area of London. The museum is dedicated to history, art, and culture and boasts a vast collection of art and artifacts from around the world.
A great place to visit in London. Entrance is free for everyone.
4. The London Eye
Located on the Southerner’s Bank of the River Thames, the London Eye is the most popular tourist attraction in England. And not only is it a lovely attraction to observe London from, but it is also the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in Europe.
5. Shoryu Ramen Soho
This is hands down my favorite ramen restaurant in London. They have an amazing menu with a great selection of ramen noodle dishes and buns.
I highly recommend the Karaka Tan Tan Tonkotsu ramen noodles.
6. Buckingham Palace
Take a tour at Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the Queen of England.
Buckingham Palace opens its doors to the public during the summer months. However, it is a very popular tourist attraction so be sure to book your tickets in advance.
7. Madame Tussauds
Madame Tussauds is a famous museum know for its very lifelike wax figures of the world’s most famous people. So if you’re curious to know what it would feel like to meet your favorite celebrities in real life, then definitely include Madame Tussauds on your list of places to visit in London.
I was personally taken aback by how tall some of my favorite celebrities are. Really fun place to visit in London!
8. Piccadilly Circus
Piccadilly Circus isn’t actually a circus but an amazing road junction located in London’s West End, in the city of Westminster. It is one of the busiest junctions in London and connects Regent Street (a great place to do your shopping) and Piccadilly.
The easiest way (or at least I think so) to reach Piccadilly Circus is by using the London Underground, get off at Piccadilly station and take the stairs up.
9. The River Thames
The River Thames is another great place to visit in London. Flowing through southern England (Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames, and Windsor), the River Thames is the second-longest river in the UK.
You can take nice long walks along the river banks, or take a boat to view London from the Thames. They’re also lovely restaurants offering great views to the Thames.

The London Dungeon is another exciting and thrilling place to visit in London. It brings the city’s 1000 years of history back to life in the most exciting and entertaining ways.
You’ll be taken ten centuries back in time to see the plague-ridden streets of London, withness Guys Fawke’s dramatic plans to blow parliament, and visit Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel amount other things.
