Attractions Every Visitor To London Should See

Posted: Feb 17 2014

London is becoming an increasingly popular destination for international teachers, with the pervasive culture, vibrant night life and renowned food providing a powerful allure. School vacancies in London, however, can be quite hard to find, and this is where SANZA Teaching Agency can help you if you’re ready to take the next step in your career. But what should you do when you get there? Our list of the top visitor attractions should get you started.

Top Visitor Attractions in London

  • The Tower of London – have you ever felt a powerful desire to see the imperial crown of Queen Victoria or the royal armour of King Henry VIII close up? No, we haven’t either, but you’d be a fool to miss out on this opportunity to soak up some of the rich heritage that London has to offer. Whilst it’s a bit of a tourist trap, the tower can be a great day out on that rare summers day – make sure you don’t miss the famous 7 Tower Ravens who have their own Yeoman Guardsman looking after them.
  • The London Eye – opened in 2000, this has remained a staple favourite ever since. Each of the 32 pods is equipped with a touch-sensitive display that can tell you what you’re looking at during your 30 minute trip. With a fantastic view that encompasses Westminster Palace and Big Ben, London’s South Bank and the Shard, taking a trip down to the London Eye is a must.
  • Borough Market – one of the oldest and largest food markets in London, this attraction in the borough of Southwark (5 minutes from London Bridge) boasts a whole range of culinary delights that range from fresh fruit and veg to speciality cheese wheels and seafood platters. Make sure you get there early on a weekend or go on a weekday to make sure you actually get to sample the food rather than get crowded past it.
  • Harrods – make like a millionaire and pretend you’re there for a fine watch or just window shop in the food hall – either way, Harrods of Knightsbridge has something for everyone and you don’t have to own a private jet to enjoy it. Better yet, it’s just around the corner from Hyde Park so you can enjoy a leisurely stroll to shake away thoughts of impulse buying that £2,000 handbag you just saw.
  • Hamleys – you might think that the world’s oldest toy store has nothing to offer a sophisticated adult such as yourself, and you’d be dead wrong. Recapture your inner child and experience the nostalgia of Scalextric or simply go for the Lego town – either way, you won’t be disappointed in this little slice of toy heaven located on Regent Street.
