THREE DAYS IN LONDON: THE ULTIMATE LONDON ITINERARY
Your first day in London should consist of acquainting yourself with the most popular touristic sites, so that you can start to dig deeper, as soon as possible!
PALACE OF WESTMINSTER, BIG BEN, AND WESTMINSTER BRIDGE
London’s monuments really don’t get any more iconic than the Palace of Westminster and Big Ben, and the adjacent Westminster Bridge. So it only makes sense that you start your three days in London here! If you’d like to, you can book tickets online for a Houses of Parliament tour inside of the Palace of Westminster, and if not, you can just admire the incredible architecture from outside.
The London Eye is likely the most expensive attraction you’ll encounter during your three days in London, but the views really are worth it. One full rotation on the ferris wheel takes about 30 minutes, allowing ample time to spot all of London’s impressive landmarks and better acquaint yourself with the city. Though pricy, if you purchase your London Eye tickets online before your visit, you can save a few pounds.
Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of the Queen, and it’s one of the only royal palaces still fully operating today. You can purchase tickets to tour the palace’s lavish state rooms and see its exquisite furnishings, sculptures, and paintings.
Before your visit, you should also check when the Changing of the Guard will occur, so you can witness this royal spectacle as well!
HYDE PARK OR GREEN PARK
Hyde Park and Green Park are both royal parks of London. If you’re blessed with good weather, a stroll, and a nice picnic or bike ride through the park will be a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
If the weather’s not ideal, swap the park visit for one of the items in our “even more time” category at the end of this article.
For foodies (and anyone with an appetite), the Borough Market is the perfect place to grab a bite; it is the UK’s most famous food market, after all. Under the railway lines, the Borough Market bustles with people, as all kinds of stands sell dairy products, baked goods, fresh produce, and meat products. Meanwhile street food stalls serve up some of the best food in London! From artisanal chocolates and vegetarian Indian food, to creamy gelato and freshly baked baguettes, whatever you’re craving, you can find it at the Borough Market.
