With an immense amount of sights, events, entertainment and history in the capital, it's hard to know where to start. One thing to remember is that many of its world-class collections, including the British Museum and National Gallery, are free to enter. Many of London's top museums are clustered in plush South Kensington, such as the V&A and the kid-friendly Natural History Museum. It's also here that you'll find the Royal Albert Hall, which is one of many London top venues for classical music. We also love the venues for seeing the vast city from above, such as The View From The Shard and London Eye.
A few of our favourite things to see, if you are short of time, include world-class art at the National Gallery and Tate Modern and which brings out the traditional and cutting edge cerations. Of course London's nightlife is all the more special with its theatre scene where you'll find family-friendly shows such as War Horse and Matilda the Musical, plus outdoor shows in the long summer evenings. Our tip for hunting down tickets is the official TKTS booth in Leicester Square, where on the day you'll have a pick of discounted seats.
