FREE Self Guided Walking Tour of London | Includes Map

 

 If you’re in London for a limited amount of time you’ll want to use that time as best as possible, right? 

I’ve put together a great sight-seeing walking tour of London that takes you past 23 of the key sights that you’ll want to check out while you’re here. The route is super efficient and super interesting and allows you to use your time, your money and your walking energy as wisely as possible.

You can choose to use the walking tour just as photo opportunities or you can go pay to go inside some of the sights and explore further if you wish. Saying that most of them are free! Also, if you want to take the route a little bit slower, remember you can also split it up over two days.
