List of things to do in London. What are the most popular attractions in London? This list ranks to top places to see in London, the capital city of England and the United Kingdom's largest city. From World Heritage Sites to modern marvels, there are plenty of must-see attractions in London. 

What is London most famous for? From the double-decker buses and red telephone boxes to Big Ben and the Queen of England, London's strong heritage and rich history is rooted in the arts, education and more. William Shakespeare lived in London, and today the playwright's Globe Theatre still functions as a modern theatre on the Thames River. Nearby on the River Thames is the London Eye located on the South Bank. The London Eye is the tallest ferris wheel in Europe and is the most visited attraction in London. Another popular point of interest is the Tower of London, a historic castle that was a royal residence turned prison that once held Queen Elizabeth I. 

There's nothing better than experiencing the British way of life than reliving some of your favorite moments in Harry Potter by heading to London's King's Cross station and finding Platform 9 3/4 and catching the imaginary train to Hogwarts. Another way to become a proper Londoner is to eat as the British do: fish and chips, Yorkshire pudding and afternoon tea are just a few British foods that cannot be missed while visiting London.
