Tower Bridge - Tower Bridge, Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 2UP, UK

London - capital city of the United Kingdom - with a population of nearly 9 million people. Festivals, Museums, Theatre, Art, Night Life & Sport - London has it all! Would you like to see many of the highlights on a 2 day trip - mainly on foot? Read on! On this tour, we'll visit 2 UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Tower of London & The Palace of Westminster / Westminster Abbey. We'll see Buckingham Palace and 2 Royal Parks. And we'll experience the wonders of the National Gallery, the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Churchill War Rooms and the Natural History Museum. We'll view the city from the highest building in London - The Shard. And we'll get up close with Tower Bridge. Want entertainment? We'll be dropping by the West End including Leicester Square, Soho and Covent Garden. This is a tried and tested tour that I've done with friends & family - bring your best walking shoes :) You'll likely be tired from all the combined walking and culture at the end of Day 2 - however you'll definitely have made the most of your trip to London. I'm making the assumption that you're travelling to London on a Friday evening. If this is the case - I'd recommend heading to your accommodation, and dropping off your bags before heading out to a local eatery for refreshments. Make sure you're fresh for an early start the next day! I recommend booking a theatre performance in the West End for the end of Day 1. There are loads of theatres showing fabulous plays and musicals. You should book in advance - there are several online ticket sellers, such as: West End Theatre Bookings and London Theatre. To get around London, public transport such as the London Underground ("The Tube") or bus - is highly recommended. If you've got time ahead of arriving in London, you could check out the Visitor Oyster Card - which needs to be sent to your home address. Otherwise, a One Day Travel Card is available for purchase at London stations - giving you unlimited all day travel. You could also rent an official Transport for London Santander Bike - but London is not yet as advanced as, say, Copenhagen with its bike lanes - so you need to be careful. London weather can be variable (you can check the forecast with the BBC Weather site) - an umbrella or fold up waterproof could be advisable during the warmer months - although it can also get into the upper 20Cs on a hot day - and obviously dress appropriately for the winter which could be damp and cold.
