2. Coca-Cola London Eye
The Coca-Cola London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
At 135 metres, the Coca-Cola London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel; a feat of design and engineering, it has become the modern symbol representing the capital and a global icon. The experience showcases breathtaking 360-degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade.

A traditional Victorian music hall in London’s Tower Hamlets, Wilton’s Music Hall has been fully restored in recent years to its former glory. Book tickets to a variety of performances, drop by for a drink in the impressive Mahogany Bar or simply take a tour of this wonderful, historic venue.
4. Little Venice
Just as its name suggests, Little Venice is London’s answer to the famous Italian city. Home to various waterside cafes, pubs and restaurants, the area comes alive in the summer months as Londoners jump on canal boats or walk along the riverside to nearby Camden or Regent’s Park.
5. Tate Modern
A visit to London isn’t complete without a trip to Tate Modern.
Britain’s national museum of modern and contemporary art from around the world is housed in the former Bankside Power Station on the banks of the Thames. The awe-inspiring Turbine Hall runs the length of the entire building and you can see amazing work for free by artists such as Cézanne, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Rothko, Dalí, Pollock, Warhol and Bourgeois.
Entrance for the gallery is free, charges for events/special exhibitions.
Sunday – Thursday, 10.00–18.00
Friday and Saturday, 10.00–22.00
6. Camden Passage
Camden Passage has grown from the opening of its first antiques shop in the 1960s to a total of 200 dealers.
Tucked behind Upper Street in Islington, Camden Passage is a real treasure trove of cute cafes, independent boutiques, vintage shops – where you’ll find everything from exquisite one-offs to fun party outfits – as well as an antiques market selling furniture, curios, war memorabilia and various bric-a-brac.
7. Postman’s Park
Postman’s Park gained its name due to its popularity as a lunch spot with workers from the nearby old General Post Office. Now it’s home to the unique Watts memorial, a gallery of glazed tablets commemorating tragic acts of bravery. This corner of green space would be an even better kept secret it weren’t for Jude Law’s character visiting the park in the 2004 film Closer.
8. Victoria Park
Victoria Park in London’s Tower Hamlets is a large park with canals, ponds, a pavilion, tennis courts and a sports ground.
Open air pop and rock concerts are held in the park during the summer.
Thanks to its live music sessions and Prohibition-inspired cocktail menu, Nightjar has become one of the most popular speakeasies in London. Look for it in a secluded basement in East London, and be prepared for a night of swing, blues, jazz and inventive drinks.
10. Royal Museums Greenwich
Immerse yourself in the fascinating history of this UNESCO’s World Heritage site. The complex includes the National Maritime Museum, the Queen’s House, the Royal Observatory (incorporating the Peter Harrison Planetarium) and the spectacular tea clipper Cutty Sark
