When are you visiting? What are your are your interests? Where will you be staying? Would be helpful to us to know the answers to those questions so we could suggest things to see and do and the ease of getting to them by public transport or your own two feet. Otherwise in no order of importance: Parliament Square (Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey), Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Tower of London, countless free museums, walking in Hyde Park or Green Park or Regents Park or Hampstead Heath. Covent Garden, Camden Lock Market, Borough Market, Spitafield's, walk along Bankside and the Thames river. Regent Street, Oxford Street, Harrods. Please share your interests and we could be a bit more helpful in suggesting an actual itinerary.

hey! my friend and i will be visiting in march. We are interested in exploring the culture of the place, visiting places that are scenic and also have nice and cheap food. As we are exchange students, we are intending to keep our expenses as low as possible. Thank you for your help and advise in advance :)

Also, we are unsure where to stay but we are looking to stay in hostels that are close to most of the attractions. Should we stay in just one hostel or should we move around? Thanks!:)

Why move around if you are only there a few days.. that's a waste of time.. checking out,, going to next place, checking in.. 2 hours wasted!!

I think the best places to visit for a first time visitor are The Tower Of London.. not cheap, but if you get a travelcard you can take advantage of the 2 for 1 deal, which is a great deal! Take the included Beefeaters tour.. humorously done and informative.

Our favorite museum so far has been the Imperial War Museum.. ( especially the part on what life was like in London during WWII) and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Obviously the British Museum is a good must see also.

Bonus.. all those museums are FREE.. so you only have to pay for seeing the Tower( and we think that's worth the price) .
