Borough Market - For the foodie, Borough Market may just be heaven on earth. Open for lunch Monday and Tuesday, and with a full market Wednesday through Saturday, there is a lot to explore. The sheer amount of choice available can be overwhelming, but definitely worth a couple laps around the food stalls as you decide.

Tate Modern - If you’re a modern art buff, you must go to the Tate Modern. From daily free guided tours to interactive digital displays throughout, there is plenty to see and do. Only special exhibitions have entrance fees.

The London Eye - One of the most iconic tourist experiences in recent London history, The London Eye is a gigantic, slow-moving ferris wheel. During the ride you stand or sit in a glass pod and have one of the best views of the city you could get, unless you happen to have access to a helicopter.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre - Any theatre buff’s ultimate experience would probably be seeing a Shakespeare production as they were meant to be seen. You can have that experience at the rebuilt Globe theatre, situated a mere hundred yards from the original.

Imperial War Museum - The Imperial War Museum covers the stories of people who were impacted by conflict from the First World War up through the present. There are exhibits such as The Trench Experience and the Holocaust Exhibition.
