"Hello Sally, It is very easy to get off the beaten track in London. Try these places: - Brixton Village Market in South West London is great for great food (Honest Burgers, the best cake store, gluten free, pizza, cook-you-own-toast breakfast place). It is also undercover! - Broadway Market is also lovely on a nice day, has great food and is slightly cheaper than Borough Market. - Do a walking tour with"  See More

"Stephanie, Given that you've never been to London before, here are my suggestions. Additionally, you're coming from the East Coast, so you'll probably be arriving in London in mid-to-early morning -- if you can manage to push through that first day without succumbing to jet lag, you'll feel great the rest of your trip. As an aside, this list is mostly cultivated from my own loves in London -- it's by no means definitive nor necessarily the most popular. Just places I love! :) Day 1 (Day of Arrival) Grab breakfast at Regency Cafe, a classic place for English Breakfast Wander around near Buckingham Palace, cross Westminster Bridge, and enjoy a coffee (and unique view) from 2 Love Tea & Coffee House (!"  See More

"The British Museum is amazing but depending on your interests you might enjoy Tate Modern, Natural History Museum, Tower Of London or The Sherlock Holmes Museum more."  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

"The The British Museum is free and chock full of stunning exhibits as is the Natural History Museum (although this has a fee)."  See More

"What about a museum or gallery, my favourites are the Natural History Museum and National Gallery in Trafalgar Square, all for free!"  See More

"I'll second the recommendation for the National Geographic photography exhibit at the Natural History Museum if it's still there or you can check and see if any of the other museums have special exhibits that you might not have seen even though you've visited the museum."  See More

"The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Natural History Museum."  See More

"Hi, Donna, Not sure what your interests are, but I just happened to be helping a friend who was going there with a group of many different ages and interests so see if any of these appeal to you! For mainstream attractions: Tower Of London don’t let the high admission fee discourage you from coming here. It’s an absolutely incredible experience that will give you a sense of history like almost no other place in London. If you can, send away for tickets to see the Ceremony of the Keys—it’s incredible. It’s a nighttime ceremony that’s been going on for 700 years and it’s not easy to get to see (the tickets go months in advance but try it anyway). Here’s the link to apply for tickets:>"  See More

"Many days can be spent wandering around the following all within a 15 minute walk of each other: the Victoria & Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, the Royal College of Art and Royal Geographical Society on Kensington Gore are next to the Royal Albert Hall and have free events and exhibitions- continue your walk into the Hyde Park and the Serpentine Gallery in the park- dip your toes into the Diana Princess Of Wales Memorial Walk, and it is possible to swim on the south side of the Serpentine So bring a towel."  See More

"But, walk along the Thames, visit The British Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Museum of London Docklands, visit Greenwich (picnic near the observatory for a great view over the city) and Camden Town, check out 'the scoop at more London', often free films and plays in the summer there (it's outdoors)."  See More

"Oh, there are so many great ones in London!!! I'm envious that you get to see them for the first time!!! The history here is just insane and the museums are beyond incredible. Have a blast and try to check out as many of these as you can!!! Tower Of London –don’t let the high admission fee discourage you from coming here. It’s an absolutely incredible experience that will give you a sense of history like almost no other place in London. If you can, send away for tickets to see the Ceremony of the Keys. It’s a nighttime ceremony that’s been going on for 700 years and it’s not easy to get to see (the tickets go months in advance). Here’s the link to apply for tickets: >"  See More
