Best Attractions in London-Top London Highlights

Travellers heading to the British capital have a plethora of exciting attractions to visit during a tour. Here are some of the key highlights every visitor should explore on a London getaway.

1

Buckingham Palace

As the most famous royal residence in the world, no trip to London would be complete without a tour of the Buckingham Palace. Serving as the London home of Her Majesty the Queen of England, summertime is the best time to venture down to this well-known cultural hotspot. Although the palace in its entirety is not open to the public, a vast area including the luxurious State Rooms are open to visitors. Travellers visiting London from July to September should make it a point to spend a few hours at this grand ancient palace.

Madame Tussauds

The Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London is not only the original instalment of the iconic recreational hub but also the finest as it encompasses a wealth of wax figurines missing from the Asian and other branches of the famed museum franchise. Spend time snapping selfies with your favourite celebrities and the British Royal family at this one of a kind attraction which celebrates pop culture and the many leaders, musicians, athletes, actors and royals that have influenced the course of history.

Tower of London

With a complex history that dates back nearly a thousand years, the Tower of London was once a palace but also served as an arsenal, a prison as well as a zoo and an execution spot in this chequered past. Having also been the royal jewel house once upon a time ago, some of the top things to explore during a visit to the ancient structure is to look upon the White Tower or listen to the tales told by Yeoman soldiers. Other points of interest include royal bedchambers or Medieval monarchs and the rooms in which the Crown Jewels were once contained.

4

London Dungeon

While it may not be for the faint of heart, discovering the London Dungeons is one of the most exciting and creepy things to do during a holiday in the capital. Complete with compelling performers from live actors and special effects that recreate the gory past of this iconic prison, step back in time to experience 90 minutes inside the dungeons where special rides are also set up to amuse travellers. Those based at the Berjaya Eden Park London Hotel or any similar 3-star hotel in London will find that they have easy access to the underground holding pens.

5

SEA LIFE London

Often described as a family-friendly attraction in London, an afternoon at SEA LIFE London is an enchanting way to spend one's time in the British capital. Home to a whopping 400 varieties of sea life including sharks, moray eels, clownfish, and stingrays this larger than life aquarium is also the best place to spot green sea turtles and engage in the jaw-dropping Shark Walk. Check feeding times and daily attractions before heading on over to this edutainment hub as there's always something on show for both the young and the adults.

Tate Modern

Art lovers should not miss the chance to spend time in the Tate Modern during their holiday in the city as it houses some of the top collections of contemporary art pieces in the world.
