To visit as many places in London as possible during a day, you have to start early in the morning, stay mostly in the centre and travel by tube, because it is the quickest way how to travel.

Before the trip, you have to set your priorities, so you have to know, what you want to see definitely and what you would like to see, if you have enough time. For example, there are many impressing free museums in London, but you can spend hours in the largest ones, so you will not have much time to visit other places.

Things to do in London in 1 day:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Houses of Parliament
  • Big Ben
  • London Eye
  • Tower Bridge
  • View from Sky Garden (requires a free booking few days / weeks ago) or 120 Fenchurch street rooftop (no booking is required)


  • Canary Wharf (travel by DLR)
  • View from Royal Observatory in Greenwich
  • Little Venice
  • Picadilly Circus
  • Leicester Square
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Covent Garden

Things to do in London in 3 days:

If you plan to visit free museums or galleries in London, before you go there, you have to check if they require to book a free ticket.

In some cases, you have to book a free ticket a couple of days before your planned trip. I recommend to not rely that tickets will be available on the day of planned visit.
