London, though polluted and congested by UK standards, is a very interesting city in terms of heritage and history. While most of the city is full of things to do, the areas on the banks of the mighty river Thames is especially happening. One needs at least three days to explore the tourist attractions of London.
The great Tower bridge over the river Thames. Many people confuse it with the London Bridge though the London bridge is not as magnificient.
A statue of a horse and a rider in London, King Charles I I think. The city is dotted with magnificient statues and buildings that are mostly old.
South Bank Lion Statue on the south side of the Westminster Bridge. Lions seem to the favorite animals along with horses of Londoners. There are lions on the Trafalgar square as well.
The Tower bridge from the river. There is supposed to be an exhibition inside the towers that also provides a magnificient view of the city from a height.
Bus Tour really helps knowing London’s famous landmarks and reveals London’s colorful history of 2000 years.
There are many Bus tours available in London and many of them offer a choice of a recorded commentary or a live commentary delivered by entertaining guides.
Some of them have hop-on, hop-off facility which enables to get on and off the bus at many places of interest...
There are some nice offerings with inclusion of free cruise on the river Thames and sometimes food vouchers etc....
