Quite simply one of the world’s greatest museums.
2 London Eye
The universally loved observation wheel is now a key London landmark.
3 Tate Modern
London’s huge modern art gallery is housed in a spectacularly converted power station.
4 Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
Catch a show in this amazing reconstructed Elizabethan theatre.
5 Highgate Cemetery
The steeply sloping terraces of the West Cemetery’s overgrown graves are the last word in Victorian Gothic gloom.
Picturesque riverside spot, with a weekend market, the National Maritime Museum and old Royal Observatory.

Stroll amid the exotic trees and shrubs, or head for the steamy glasshouses.
8 Hampton Court Palace
Tudor interiors, architecture by Wren and vast gardens make this a great day out.

London’s most beautiful department store, opened as a retail outlet for the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement, and still the place to go for gorgeous fabrics and decorative household goods.
