There are far more museums in London than you can see in a single trip, and most of them are free. You can spend a long time visiting international museums such as the Tate, the British Museum, the City Museum, the National Gallery, the Natural History Museum, and many others for free.

The Museum Of Natural History, which houses over 80 million products, such as samples obtained by Charles Darwin, is among my favourites. It has a priceless catalogue of fossils, creating an interesting and educational stop.

Another great option is the Victoria and Albert Museum (named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert). It houses over 2,000 works of art spanning 3,000 years of human history.

3. Experience the London Eye.

The London Eye is a Ferris wheel that stands 500 feet tall. Despite being somewhat cheesy, it is one of London’s most famous destinations. It’s located across the street from Parliament and offers spectacular scenery of London and the most classic structures, particularly on a clear day.

4. Go to the London Dungeon.

“The world’s most hauntingly famous horror destination,” according to the London Dungeon. It is a morbid but exciting museum that covers 2,000 years of London’s more horrific heritage. Although you might learn about popular English interrogation tactics, this location has evolved more and more into an “amusement park”. However, if you enjoy things like escape rooms and terrifying boat tours, you’ll relish it.

5. Check out the Royal Observatory.
