Tower of London

Stroll along the famous esplanade, past street performers and pop-up eateries to the more edifying landmarks such as The British Film Institute, National Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Royal Festival Hall. Further along the river, you can find Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern.

Westminster Abbey
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-visit on your bus tour. Hop off and explore the country’s coronation church since the 11th century and walk down the same aisle that Kate Middleton did to marry Prince William. Westminster Abbey is a stunning historic building with impressive stained glass windows, paintings and old pews but it’s also famous as the burial ground for some of the most esteemed intellectuals, scientists and writers such as Charles Darwin, Geoffrey Chaucer and Charles Dickens.

Tower Bridge
The most iconic crossing over the Thames, the Tower Bridge is one of the most photographed landmarks in London so jump off here to enjoy a visit of this old Victorian bascule bridge. Just opposite the Tower of London and across from London Bridge, Tower Bridge is a great attraction if you like engineering and a good view. The Victorian Engine Rooms show you show the old bascules worked and the new elevated glass walkway gives you unparalleled views over London and the river.

Buckingham Palace
You can’t miss a photo opportunity at one of the most recognisable buildings in the country, Buckingham Palace. Home to the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, this beautiful building is a top London attraction and is one of the few working palaces left in the world. Hop off at the Buckingham Palace stop and catch the Changing of the Guard before walking through Green Park for some quiet sanctuary.

"I would absolutely recommend buying the London Pass if you have 3 or more days to spend exploring London. Buy it ahead of time, online and research what is available and decide what attractions you might be interested in. A top 10 sort of thing, and then any others that might be of interest. It gives you the freedom to visit many popular sites without the hassle of standing in long lines for tickets. I also liked that I wasn't spending all kinds of money every day on attractions and money did not enter into my decisions on what I wanted to do since my admissions where already paid for. I very much enjoyed my visit in London and I think having the London Pass allowed me to see more than I would have, had I not had it. Thank you!!"
