A Walk Around London (Photos)

London is perhaps the most photographed city in the world, but that doesn't mean it's not still fun to walk around and take photos.

Big Ben Clock Tower, on the north side of the Westminster Parliament building, is one of London's most famous landmarks.

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is the head residence of the monarchy, and at all times of the day, you'll find a crowd of people outside peering into the gates at the famous guards inside.

St. Paul's Cathedral

Built in the 17th century, yet on the same site where a previous church dates back to 604, St. Paul's Cathedral is another place you must see in London.

The architecture and construction of the church are an absolute wonder.

Hyde Park

Despite all the famous buildings and structures scattered throughout London, many ordinary buildings are not well-known but are still landmarks with years of history.

One thing I enjoyed doing most was walking around London and admiring the old architecture.

Along with the many impressive buildings throughout London, there's also a fantastic amount of nice cars in the city. I could spend all day walking the streets, looking at nice cars.

Transportation in London

Getting around London using public transportation is quite convenient, though it can be expensive.

Using a combination of the underground, known as the tube, double-decker buses, and walking, we could get everywhere we went within the city.

Walk around the streets of London in certain parts, and you'll see lots of interesting graffiti and street art.

River Thames

I didn't get to take a boat on the River Thames when I was in London, but I did walk across several bridges, like Tower Bridge and London Bridge, and enjoyed the view of the river from above.

If interested, you can take a sightseeing cruise on the river.

Broadway Market

Stop by Broadway Market on Saturday if you are visiting London on a weekend. The market is excellent for finding delicious food, listening to pop-up musicians, walking around, and people-watching.

fish and chips
You can't miss fish and chips.

The most famous meal in London is a combination of fish and chips.

This plate, from Fish Central, included a mega-sized piece of battered and deep-fried fish with a side of thick-cut fries. I doctored it up with some malt vinegar, and it was marvelous.

London Eye

I had passed through the airport in London many times previously, but this was my first time in the city, and it was great to walk around and enjoy the sights and sounds of London.
