Travel to Buckingham Palace and the London Eye
The crowning glory of London’s travel attractions is Buckingham Palace. Located between Trafalgar Square and Green Park, Buckingham Palace is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II and is only open for public tours in the summer.
Nearby, the Houses of Parliament at Westminster, the centre of British government offer an educational outing before a visit to the lively restaurants and bars of Covent Garden. When the sun goes down, spend an evening at a West End theatre, where great musicals like the Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables have played for decades.
Across the River Thames on London’s South Bank, The London Eye offers spectacular views over the city. Further along the South Bank, the National Theatre, Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe, offer the perfect place to soak up some culture.
