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.
Ready? Let’s walk!
You’ll start your walking tour at Covent Garden.
Then you’ll wander through to the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus.
Next you’ll arrive at Trafalgar Square where you can stop off at the statue of Horatio Nelson.
After Buckingham Palace, you’ll head to Westminster Abbey.
Walk over Westminster Bridge and admire the view of London from the water.
You won’t be able to miss The London Eye
At the bridge, turn left and head down the South Bank – past the book market, the skate park, the Royal Festival Hall and the National Theatre
Eventually, you’ll end up along Bankside where you can have a poem written by the poem guy…
… or you can feel cultured at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre…
You won’t able to miss The Shard.
Soon, you’ll walk over Tower Bridge.
Close to the Tower of London is the Monument to the Fire of London which you can walk to the top if you wish.
Finally, you’ll end at the beautiful St Paul’s Cathedral.
I’ve created a really handy Google map for you below which shows you the entire route above so you can easily follow along on your phone. Happy walking and remember, you’ll burn some serious calories so make sure you check out some of my London food recommendations.
