"You might wanna go to Camden Town and Camden Market (once the epicentre of punk, goth and also hippies, now a center for shopping - but still really fun to see) or visit Big Ben and other landmarks."  See More

"Just try to hit one museum (my vote is for either The British Museum or Tate Modern), one government/royal thing (Buckingham Palace or House of Parliament), one historical site (Churchill War Rooms or Westminster Abbey) and one outdoor spectacle (Big Ben or Trafalgar Square)."  See More

"London covers a lot of area so group together sites in the same area to save travel time, like the Shakespeare's Globe and Tate Modern are close to each other; the Natural History Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum are across the street from each other; the London Eye is near the House Of Parliament and Big Ben."  See More

"Big Ben can be seen right outside westminster Victoria & Albert Museum is also great museum focusing more on statues and architecture."  See More

"Also go to the House Of Parliament and see Big Ben."  See More

"Big Ben and House of Parliament are also musts(right next to each other) and Westminster Abbey is right across the way and great."  See More

"And of course there is the centre with everything you've seen about London on TV (London Bridge, Big Ben, Oxford St) and a lot of shopping but also MANY people and tourists."  See More

"As for sighting, in London: Tower Of London (get a free tour with one of the Beefeaters- hilarious and informative--plus your kids will love this place--you can climb very tight spiral staircases), river cruise on the River Thames, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace with St James' Park (they will love all the birds and white pelicans), Big Ben/Parliament Square."  See More

"Of course you'll also have to see Big Ben and the House of Parliament."  See More

"In my travels, this includes The White House, Everglades National Park, Great Wall Of China, Tiananmen Square, Big Ben, Tower Of London, Vatican City, Colosseum - all were amazing for their own individual reasons, and I was thrilled to have visited each one in their own right."  See More

"Surprisingly, the one city that has a ton of "tourist traps" that I don't usually recommend to people is London- it's really a city better appreciated when you get away from the lackluster Big Ben and things like that."  See More

"Be warned though, any vantage point around London Eye Big Ben and House Of Parliament would be very crowded, as is Trafalgar Square - another NYE hotspot."  See More

"I would spend spend 3 month traveling/hiking in Europe and I would visit Eiffel Tower, The Louvre Buckingham Palace Tower Bridge then go see Big Ben then Culzean Castle then Edinburgh then off to see Dublin then off to see the Brussels then the Matterhorn"  See More

"St James's Park Buckingham Palace Big Ben Green Park Bridge St London Eye M&M's World Chinatown Hard Rock Cafe London Good luck!"  See More
