3 Days in London: Suggested Itineraries

By Viator, April 2014

4.5 1643 Reviews | Add your review

If you want big, you’ll go no bigger than London. The world’s tenacious financial center, London is known for its chaotic walkways, historic relics plundered from afar, ancient pubs, regal palaces, myriad accents, and endless nightlife.  Whatever your tastes are, you can satisfy them here, in London.

Day 1: See London

Want to attempt the impossible and see London in a day? You'll definitely need a guide. Trust in London’s famous black cab drivers; these super-cabbies are licensed by the city and given an exhaustive test to assure intimate knowledge with London’s labyrinthine lanes. Or just choose your own highlights on a hop-on hop-off tour. Whichever method you choose, don't miss St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, the South Bank, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and a traditional English Tea Time.

Day 2: London Shopping and Touring

London doesn’t acquire the title of World’s Financial Centre and playground for the fashonista elite for nothing. Harrod’s, Oxford Circus, and Piccadilly Circus are all postcard London, with all the glamour and price-tags there involved, but if you’re looking for something with a more local flavor, try one of the many exciting markets. Among them are Portobello Road, famous for antiques and quirky odds 'n' ends (Saturdays); Borough Market, a Saturday must-do for foodies; and Camden Markets, open every day, with alternative fashions and hand-made crafts.

London has some of the world's best museums and galleries. Don't miss the Tate Modern, the British Museum, the National Gallery, or the Victoria and Albert Museum. And if it's a nice day, go for stroll along the Southbank of the Thames, or in one of London's wonderful parks: Hyde Park, Regent's Park, or Hampstead Heath.

Day 3: Day Trips Beyond

London could keep you occupied for weeks, but there are plenty of things to see and do beyond the city limits. Head from London to Windsor Castle (continuously occupied for nearly 1,000 years - a record), mysterious Stonehenge, and the Roman spas of genteel Bath. Or make a pilgrimage to Canterbury, Dover, and Leeds Castle. Stratford, birthplace of Shakespeare, has annual festivals and performances of the Bard's work nearly year-round. Or visit the famous universities at Oxford and Cambridge. Go even further afield: try haggis in Edinburgh or snails in Paris.
