This page is dedicated to london sightseeing information - information on the best things to see in London and how to see them. We have included not just sight seeing tours, but some of the best things to see. There are lots of other places you can go and lots of things to see in London (all of which will be included on one of our pages), but we think these are the best london 'sights'.
The following links take you to a page with information on various things to see in london, including sightseeing tours (the list is in alphabetical order):
If you're on a budget (or even of you're not), have a look at our 'free' London bus sightseeing tour on the london for free page. All you need to have a travel card (but you'll want one of them anyway) and you can see many of the sights a paid for tour would take in, for free. Plus you can hop on and hop off.
Buckingham Palace - watch the changing of the guard free or pay to see more of the palace
Ceremony of the keys (tower of london) (free, but apply for tickets 2 - 3 months in advance)
Changing of the guard (buckingham palace and horse guards)
Covent Garden - street theatre at its best
Downing Street - close to trafalgar square. Worth a quick peep but, because of the gates at the start of the road, there's not much to see
Houses of Parliament (admission charges for tours, only available to non UK residents during summer recess)
Leicester Square London - cinemas, theatres, food, close to Eros and Soho (and very busy).
The Monument - climb the 312 steps to the top of this column commemorating the great fire and rebuilding of london, for great views of the city.
The London Eye - hop aboard for a 30 minute 'flight' for the best views of london. Quite expensive and a you have to queue even if you've pre-booked, but worth the wait. From 443 feat up and with 360 degree views, on a clear day, you can see for 25 miles.
