London. From Big Ben and Buckingham Palace to top nights out in Brixton, it’s what you make it.
Pro tip for taking kids – make your must-see list ahead of time to avoid arguments. Top bookable attractions include SEA LIFE and the London Eye. Older kids love Tate Modern and the Science Museum. Plus they’re free – bonus!
History fans rejoice! London is a city steeped in history. From ancient Roman ruins to castles and palaces, grand churches to infamous prisons. London really has it all. Top picks include Kensington Palace and the Tower of London for a proper history filled day out. English Heritage is a charity that manages over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places across the UK including loads of amazing locations in London. You can save 15% on an annual English Heritage membership which gives you unlimited access to all of their historic places.
If you're wanting to save money on some of London’s most talked about attractions including The London Eye, SEA LIFE, Madame Tussuads, Shrek's Adventure and the London Dungeon, check out the Merlin's Magical London Pass.
Sightseeing solo? An open-top bus tour is the best way to cram as many famous sights as possible. And if you’re keen to pop the question on a romantic weekend, the London Eye is a good pick. But just in case, ask towards the end of your ride. Unless you want a really long 30 minutes.
Anything to do in the capital that’s a bit different?
Sure. You can sleep next to the lion enclosure at London Zoo. Explore former hippie haven Eel Pie Island. Or have a kitsch 80s night out at Little Nan’s Bar in Deptford (looks like your gran’s gaff).
Feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square is not allowed... although you wouldn't think so when everyone seems to be doing it!
