Three Day London Itinerary

If you're planning a long weekend in London or perhaps a stop for a few days on a larger European Itinerary, than this jam-packed 3 day itinerary may be just what you need! Be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes because this plan will have you walking all over the city!

Day 1:

  • Start your day by visiting the iconic Tower of London. It's a historic fortress that houses the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.
  • Did you know that you can walk across Tower Bridge? You can get some pretty incredible views of the Thames River from the bridge before heading to the famous Borough Market for lunch. Favorites include the Gourmet Goat featuring Mediterranean street fare and Brindisa Kitchen Bar with counter drinking and dining.
  • After quite a filling lunch you'll want to head to the South Bank and walk along the river towards the London Eye. The Eye offers spectacular panoramic view of London. Be sure to checkout the fast-track ticket availability so you can skip some of the line!
  • Before grabbing dinner, head over to Covent Garden - the shopping and entertainment hub of London

Day 2:

  • After a hearty breakfast (who doesn't love a scone with clotted cream!?) visit the British Museum which houses a collection of over 8 million artifacts - including the Rosetta Stone
  • While you may spend a year in the Museum and still not see it all- there is more to see and do in London! Quickly pop into Trafalgar Square up to Buckingham Palace or down Whitehall towards the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Wave to the Prime Minister while walking past Downing Street!
  • This is hit or miss, but you can take a River Thames cruise from Westminster Pier to Greenwich and explore the famous Royal Observatory, the Maritime Museum, and the Cutty Sark Tea Clipper.
  • If you're not too exhausted yet, visit the West End for dinner and a show. Visit for more information on available shows.

Day 3:

  • Dust off those walking shoes again!
  • Start the day with a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral, England’s largest cathedral. You can do a self-guided tour with the London Pass.
  • Head to the nearby HMS Belfast, a retired warship turned museum. This is a popular museum for families!
  • You're probably hungry again, so why not head to Camden Market for lunch?
  • Last, but not least you'll want to visit Piccadilly Circus and explore the entertainment district which has a variety of theaters, restaurants, and shops.

It's so much packed into 3 days, but even I must admit, you'll leave London feeling like you got to see SO very much of the city!
