As England’s iconic capital city, London is steeped in centuries of history and culture.
London offers a rich mix of history, art, and cultures from around the globe. With a wide range of famous attractions that bring millions of visitors each year, there is always something amazing to see and experience in this vibrant city.
We list some of the best things to see and do when you hire a luxury car in London with Avis Prestige.
If you want to take in the sights of London, there is no better place than at The View from The Shard. The highest viewing platform in London, it offers 360-degree views for up to 40 miles! The Shard is also home to a number of luxurious restaurants and bars, so you can enjoy the view as you dine. Alternatively, explore London at your leisure from the iconic London Eye, or, if you prefer to be closer to the ground, you could see the sights from a River Cruise or traditional Bus Tour.
London is home to a wide selection of museums displaying the history and culture of this famous city. For art aficionados, the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), National Gallery, and Tate Modern are worth a visit for the fascinating artwork. Or, if you are more into Science and History, you should pay a visit to the Natural History Museum, British Museum, or Science Museum. The added benefit is that these museums have free entry!
While it’s unlikely you’ll be able to meet the royal family themselves, you could try and catch a glimpse at Buckingham Palace. If you want to get past the gates, you’ll have to plan your visit in advance – the doors only open for 10 weeks in the summer, and for private guided tours on selected dates. On the other hand, Westminster Abbey, the church where royal coronations, weddings, and funerals take place, is open to the public to visit year-round.
One of the most popular attractions is the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, where you can see behind the scenes of the Harry Potter films. It’s a great experience for any fan of Harry Potter! Another great place to visit if you want to see some famous figures is Madame Tussauds in London, with ultra-realistic waxworks of celebrities. You might even see them for real on the West End if you catch a show at one of London’s many theatres.
With so much choice of where to go and what to do, it’s difficult to know where to start!
