There is only one way to put it. London is a unique city, and as such, it has many unique places to visit and enjoy ourselves. It may be the best tourist destination for some of you and a must-see for the majority of us. If you are planning a trip to the city, here are the places you must see as soon as you arrive. These are some of the most well-known locations on the planet.
The London Eye is one of the best and most appealing tourist destinations in the city, with a massive appeal among 99 percent of tourists. First, on a clear day, you can see the London Eye from 40 kilometers away. It stands 135 meters tall and contains 32 capsules. Each capsule represents a different borough of the city. The London Eye is located above the River Thames, and yes, you can see a large portion of the city as well as other attractions such as Big Ben and others.
A nice touch here is that the pods rotate all the time, giving you a 360-degree view of the city. It’s worth looking for a great hotel with a great view near the London Eye. If you know the city is spectacular, you should go as soon as possible. At the same time, it is one of the places that is unique and cannot be found in another city. It will take you 30-40 minutes to complete the experience, making it ideal for tourists with limited time.
It goes without saying that seeing Buckingham Palace should be your top priority. This location is unique and one-of-a-kind. Yes, this is an office with residents of the Queen, so we all know it is unique. In reality, this is one of the few royal locations that is still used for these purposes today. Keep in mind that you can visit 19 different staterooms on specific dates (November-December only).
This means that the location is not ideal or appropriate for all tourists, but there is one thing that you can all do. The famous Changing of the Guard event is free and open every day. It begins at 10:45 a.m., and you should try to arrive early to catch the event. It could take up to 45 minutes, but the thrill is worth it.
Hippodrome Casino London is a fantastic attraction that you will enjoy and that we strongly recommend. The casino was a nightclub, a theater, and much more than the previous one, but it was not a casino with 93,000 square feet for gamblers. Although this location does not have a website, there are many online casinos that can provide the same service and even more. It was converted into this type of establishment in 2012, and as you might expect, the conversion was not cheap.
Inside, there are three floors of games to enjoy. There are poker tables, 15 blackjack tables, roulette, and numerous other games. Visitors can enjoy a meal in a restaurant, a drink, and much more than just gambling. Everyone who has visited this location has been impressed and plans to return.
Madame Tussauds London
If you ever visit London, you must go to Madame Tussauds. It is a one-of-a-kind transaction that will impress you. The museum contains 190 wax figures. Dwayne Johnson, the Avengers, Yoda, and many more can be seen. Just keep in mind that visiting the entire museum and inspecting all of the figures will take up to two hours. All of this is only a small portion of what you can see here, and it certainly deserves your attention. The museum is located on Marylebone Road, and yes, reservations are required. You’ll also need a lot of time because you’ll want to photograph these characters and possibly include yourself in one of them.
Emirates Air Line
You can rent a pod and travel from the Greenwich Peninsula to the Royal Docks. If you enjoy heights and want to see London from above, this is another attraction worth seeing. The best part is that this attraction is very reasonably priced. They are available online for a low price of £5. A child’s ticket will cost £2.5. Of course, if you want them in the real world, you will have to pay more. Furthermore, a round trip will cost you £10, which is still a bargain. As such, it has the potential to be one of the city’s best, most affordable, and most thrilling attractions. Of course, we will only recommend it if you enjoy heights or are unconcerned about them.
The Last Word
These are the places you should see if you visit the United Kingdom and come to London. Each one is unique, different, and amazing in its own way, and each one will make you smile. At the same time, all of these locations are fantastic and will provide you with a plethora of perfect photos for your memories and social media. Don’t worry, none of these places are expensive to visit, so you can have affordable fun.
