Hi Yuksel, 

London is full of amazing things to do and see, and three weeks will give you plenty of time to see many of them, and take a few day trips. 

If you have never visited before, use the first few days to get used to the city and its layout.

A suggested itinerary for your first day (wear your walking shoes!): 

Other things to do when you visit London: 

Most museums are free in London. For other free or budget things to do in London:

Some of my favorite spots: 

  • Hackney (for live music)
  • Hyde Park and Battersea Park: beautiful parks (especially if you like to run)
  • The Regent's Park: go to Primrose Hill to see 360 degree view of London
  • Depending on time of year, see a show at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. (closed once weather gets cold...)
  • West End plays
  • Shoreditch is funky

Visit Leicester Square, it's a touristy area for movies, gift shops, strip clubs, and restaurants all within a few steps away from each other surrounding you in a square-like area with a park in the middle. the London Eye or The London Dungeon are always fun to go to. Musicals are a big thing there too! and avoid paying for taxis other than the trip from the airport and to the airport. Subway systems or the "tube" is cheaper !

It depends on what you want to see and explore (e.g museums, parks, art galleries)...

I have a few suggestions about London on my blog:

On top of these, places I've enjoyed visiting is Greenwich Observatory, Tate Modern and Covent Garden (the latter for leisure and shopping).
