Tate Modern is housed in the building of the former Bankside Power Station, which has a substantial central chimney standing 89 m. Today is the most-visited art gallery in the world. The museum was extended with a new ten-story building in 2016, which has a gigantic pyramid shape. The new place displays the best modern and contemporary artists' installations, and it also boasts a viewing terrace with panoramic views to the opposite side of Thames. Travelling to the museum is easy by Tube, take Jubilee line and get off at the Southwark stop.
The Tower of London consists of a group of buildings. The complex was used as a fortress, armory, royal palace, treasury, detention facility and prison, but it also had its own zoo and observatory. It's impossible to see all parts of the complex during one visit, bu no visit to the Tower would be complete without seeing a Yeoman Warder. Nobody knows more about the Tower than the Yeoman Warders, so you’ve got no excuse to miss it!
The London Eye is the second most popular ferris wheel after the Chinese Star of Nanchanga. The 32 capsules of the London Eye are symbolic with one for each of London's boroughs, but there is no number 13 due to superstitious beliefs so there is a number 33 capsule. The capsules are heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer, and it takes 30 minutes to ride a whole circle. After the ride we can have a picnic at St. James Park, take a photo of the Big Ben or go to the masterpiece of the English Gothic, Westminster Abbey.
One of the biggest and most organized transportation networks in the world. Divided into 9 zones (but the biggest area is found within zones 1-6), and ticketing is easy as 1-2-3, not only paper tickets and Oyster cards are accepted, but also contactless credit/debit cards with price capping to ensure you won't get ripped off.
When people think about London and Metro, everyone will call up the red-blue logo of London Underground, also called 'The Tube', based on the shape of the tunnels (and because of this, the carriages). 11 lines, 268 stations and almost 5 million passengers carried every day. Sounds interesting? Get yourself a Tube map on major stations, and get on the next train - but don't forget to 'Mind the gap!'.
Bus network of London is more dense and complicated than a vascular system of a human body. Even though the classical Routemaster buses can only be found on two lines (bus 9 between Royal Albert Hall and Aldwych, bus 15 from Trafalgar Square to Tower Hill), still red double deckers rule the streets of the city. According to experienced travelers, the best spot is on the top deck, in the front!
Classical black cabs are the most unique and most expensive way of traveling in the city. With more than twenty thousand cars in operation, finding an available one won't be that complicated.
As London is a melting pot of nationalities, such people bring their cuisine to this metropolis. If you want to give a try, visit Borough Market at London Bridge station. Fully open from Wednesday to Saturday, limited opening on Monday and Tuesday. Closed on Sunday.
London can be explored either unguided (make sure you plan ahead where to go and what to visit), or you can join one of the guided walking tours around the clock.
If you are curious about various styles of architecture, London is a perfect place for you. From Medieval buildings to modern, state-of-the-art skyscrapers, you can go through history by going around.
