TOWER BRIDGE

Very often miscalled London Bridge, Tower Bridge is surely London's most iconic one. Don’t miss the view from the glass floor walkway that connects the two towers, this is definitely one of London's most unique experiences.

THE SHARD

Enjoy the highest viewing platform at the top of one of the tallest building in Western Europe designed by Renzo Piano. Go up until the 72 floor and watch London as you’ve never seen it before!

AQUA SHARD
(For menu, bookings and more information, please visit http://aquashard.co.uk/)

If you want to combine a great view with delicious fine food then you don’t need to go far, at the 31 floor of the Shard you can get an “eating above the clouds” experience, if you’re lucky with the weather conditions!

TATE MODERN

As many museums in London the Tate Modern contemporary art gallery has a free entry for the permanent exhibitions. Plus it has been recently renovated and now it offers so much more exhibition space, and an amazing open viewing terrace at the top of the so called Switch House. The best 360-degree view over London’s skyline.  

LONDON EYE

The best moment to get on the London Eye is definitely for the sunset. Book your tickets online to avoid the long queue and make sure to get the most amazing view of London while the sun goes down behind the Big Ben and Westminster Cathedral.

SOUTH KENSINGTON
SCIENCE MUSEUM

Another free museum to enjoy if you are into science and technology, seven floors of educational and entertaining exhibitions for both kids and grown-ups . A new addition to it is the Winton Gallery, dedicated to mathematical history, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. 

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM

Right next door to the Science Museum here you will find the Natural History Museum. Probably the most beautiful and charming architecture for a museum that you can find in London.  

HYDE PARK

A big green park right in the centre of the city, it’s perfect for a picnic or for some jogging in summer but great all year round for a long walk or a bike ride. There is always something going on here, Winter Wonderland fair in December, music festivals in summer and so much more! 

HARRODS

The iconic department store is a shoppers paradise for luxury brands or fine dining. A perfect stop for some treats and gifts. 

ROYAL ALBERT HALL

Don’t leave London without the experience of one of the many events at the Royal Albert Hall which include classical music, jazz, circus, opera, dance, comedy.
