Staying in London at least once should be on the goal list of any person who likes to see the world. One of Britain’s most iconic buildings, Buckingham Palace is also the scene of London’s most popular display of pomp and circumstance, the Changing of the Guard. Drawing crowds at 11:30am in every season, this colorful and free display of precision marching and music also takes place at St. James’s Palace where you can follow the band along The Mall as they march between sites.

Buckingham Palace was built in 1837 and has been the London residence of the Royal Family since Queen Victoria’s accession. If you’re wondering whether the Queen is in, look at the flagpole atop the building: if the royal standard is flying day and night, she’s at home. On special state occasions, she and members of the Royal Family may even emerge on the central balcony.

Camden is a well-known cultural neighborhood in north London. Known for its alternative culture, the crowds here are filled with goths, punks, rockabillies and tourists alike. Camden has a vibrant body mod community and you will find a number of piercing and tattoo shops in this part of town.

Camden Market is eclectic and diverse, featuring street food from international cuisines, and lots of stalls selling trinkets and unique artwork to take home. Rummage through vintage clothing racks, find an used book to take on your travels, or visit one of the city’s best vegan bakeries at Cookies And Scream.

This famous Baroque structure was built between 1675 and 1710 by Sir Christopher Wren and is one of the most recognisable attractions in London. It is considered an architectural masterpiece and is one of Europe’s largest cathedrals. The cathedral is beautifully designed with Corinthians columns and a large dome. The dome stretches 366 feet into the sky and weighs about 66,000 tons. There are 560 steps alongside 3 galleries that lead you to the top of the dome. This church is massive and the elaborate design of the interior with its ancient architecture and paintings is like something out of a dream.

The lovely 41-storey steel and glass skyscraper known as “The Gherkin” was built in 2004 and is one of the most impressive modern structures in the London metropolis. This building is famous for its cigar shape design and is located in the heart of the London finance centre. The topmost floor of The Gherkin is an open hall with a conical dome. A view from its peak would be incredible, but unfortunately, this building is not open to the public. However, although it’s not open to the public, the exterior view is spectacular.

The Natural History Museum is all about discovering the natural world around us and appeals to all age groups. I remember seeing the dinosaurs when I was five years old, and seeing them now still gives me the same tingle down my spine. The Blue Whale is outrageous to see as you really can’t imagine how big a life-size model has to be until you walk underneath it. Don’t miss ‘The Power Within’, where you can experience what an earthquake feels like!

The Natural History Museum is one of the big three museums in South Kensington. It’s a wonderful Victorian building housing the weird and wonderful of the natural world, and every winter there is an ice rink on the east lawn: Natural History Museum Ice Rink.
