Must-See Sights in London - Top Attractions to Explore in British Capital

As a city with a history as rich as its landscapes, there's much to discover on a tour of London. Here are some of the top landmarks and points of interest in the British capital.

1

London Eye Pod

Located on South Bank, the London Eye Pod is not only a premier sightseeing highlight but an iconic cantilevered observation deck which spins in wheel rotations. Offering breathtaking views of the city below, the structure which was built to celebrate the dawn of the new millennium is still the best way to get a bird's eye view of London and the meandering Thames.

2

Olympic Park

The staggering design by Anish Kapoor and engineering great, Olympic Park should be on every London tourist itinerary due to the spectacular views available from its 376-foot height and its mammoth slide. Don't forget to catch a glimpse of yourself in the distortion mirrors in the park as well as the many abseiling opportunities.

Westminster Abbey

Containing the tombs and ashes of some of the world's finest thinkers, poets and visionaries, this iconic cathedral founded as early as 960 A.D is another must visit highlight in the capital. Having served as the location for countless royal weddings, the abbey's coronation hall, as well as the stone dedications to Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy and Charles Darwin, are some of the key points of interest in the venue.

4

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

Like the original instalment of the global entertainment phenomenon, the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum offers visitors the chance to snap selfies alongside their favourite celebrities of the past and present. With the lifelike likeness of Elvis, the Beatles, Brad Pitt, Madonna, The Royal Family and Usain Bolt lining its walls, more than 300 models of pop culture icons decorating the venue makes it well worth the visit.

5

Buckingham Palace in London

Perhaps the most recognizable landmark in all of London, Buckingham Palace is not only the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen of England and the royal family but a historic castle laden with precious treasures. Tours of the palace are only available during selected times of the year and only a section of this functioning royal residence is open to the public but the glimpses inside the royal apartments and bedchambers of this sprawling mansion in the heart of London makes it one of the most sought after tours in the country. Visitors based at Berjaya Hotels and Resorts in the area or any similar hotels in Bayswater London will find the venue is a stone's throw away from their accommodation provider.

Hampton Court Palace

History buffs and fans of Henry the VIII should not miss the chance to tour the resplendent confines of Hampton Court Palace. Located in the south-western reaches of the city, some of the main attractions inside the compound include the Royal Maze, the Magic Garden playground and the indoor tennis court used by the Tudors. The extensive gardens surrounding the palace are equally picturesque and ideal for nature lovers in search of beautifully maintained parklands.
