London’s iconic sights by foot

October 17, 2015

Put on your best walking shoes and explore the top sights of London in one day.

First visit to London? Embrace your inner tourist and dedicate some time to tick off the iconic sights. It’s one of those cities that the main attractions are just as grand as you had imagined, and lucky for you many of them are clustered around the same central location. If you’re up for a day of walking you can actually see many of the significant sights by foot.

Begin by visiting The Shard in the morning where you’ll get your bearings with a panoramic view across London. Now you’re already in a great spot to start your day of exploring. At Southwalk you’ll be spoilt by a view of The London Bridge and the Tower of London from across the River Thames. Continue east along the Thames and you’ll pass more of the key sights such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern. Cross the ultra-modern Millennium Bridge to visit the magnificent St Pauls. You’ll then need to cross back over to the south side and continue eastwards past the London Eye. You may wish to ride this modern ferris wheel for more great views of the city.  At this point take the opportunity for a photo of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament from across the river. Continue over Westminster Bridge which will lead you towards the grand Westminster Abbey.  If you’re a real trooper you could walk through St James Park and finally reach Buckingham Palace.
