Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"I think walking around the tourist sights at night is nice, the London Eye is lit up, the Houses of Parliament are lit up, there's a Christmas market at South Bank, St Pauls is lit up."  See More

"Buckingham Palace-everybody visit this place, even though the Royal family and quinn never comes out :) ha"  See More

"Check out Borough Market during the day for good food."  See More

"The British Museum - I could spend months here but if you do nothing else, stop in to see the Rosetta Stone."  See More

"From there it depends on who I'm with but you can't go wrong with the British Museum (Stop OA), the Victoria & Albert Museum, or the National Gallery which are all free to visit and top notch."  See More

"Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Houses Of Parliament Shop, a walk through Hyde Park."  See More

"Camden Market could be interesting for you if you'd like to see a more bohemian view of the city with many stools and street food joints it shows the slightly stranger side of life in London and is a very interesting place to shop and visit!"  See More

"Basically, anywhere on the Victoria Line, Northern Line, Picadilly Line or Jubilee Line (Underground train lines, aka the tube) will be well connected to New Oxford St, Leicester Square, Westminster, Waterloo Station and London Bridge."  See More

"Science Museum is great for kids (address: Exhibition Rd, London SW7 2DD) and is right next to the Natural History Museum which is also fun for children."  See More

"I love walking by the Thames River early in the morning."  See More

"Shakespeare's Globe for a unique theatre experience."  See More

"Of your other 2 picks the Oval area is a bit edgy at night, Canary Wharf is a soulless concrete desert, South Kensington is not typically British although a lovely upscale area."  See More

"I would add Camden Lock Market to that list as well."  See More

"In terms of visiting the London Eye, do book advanced tickets to avoid a long waiting queue (maybe best to do on day 2 after Westminster) If I may suggest alternatives to getting good city views, perhaps you would consider the The Shard viewing platform (also book) which is in London Bridge, across from Borough Market."  See More
