What is very famous in London?

London has left behind some form of building, structure, palace, or monument as it’s moved through every era of its rich history that goes back for thousands of years.

Mixed in with the old is a vibrant, modern tale told through street art, world-class museums, unique architecture, great food and coffee, and magnificent views all around.

London is definitely most famous for its history. There are so many historical sites all over the city, it will take weeks to explore them all.

Sites such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge are definitely places in London to visit for history buffs.

Places to Visit in London

We spent 10 days in London (and I once lived there for over 2 years). So we’ve been fortunate enough to explore the city quite a lot.

In this guide, we’ve listed some of the best places to visit in London. These places are the best neighborhoods to explore, like Camden, Kensington, and Shoreditch, as well as the most popular tourist attractions.


Many of the paid attractions are on the London Pass by Go City, which is a great money saving discount tourist card for a select number of days or attractions.

Depending on your math, you could either use it for all the attractions you want to do, or use the card for the most expensive and then purchase separate tickets for the cheaper attractions individually. (We were gifted a 3-day city pass)
