Time to explore London. There is too much to see in one day. For the first time visitor the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and Big Ben will be high on their list. Others may have been to London some time ago, so would be more interested in the newer places like Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the London Eye. Some prefer to visit the off-beat such as Highgate Cemetery or the Old Operating Theatre in Southwark. Children can visit puppet theatres, watch street performers at Covent Garden or feed the ducks in one of the parks. Museums and galleries galore - there is something for everyone in London.
Robina Brown has been a tourist guide for over 20 years. She enjoys showing families with children around London. For history buffs she will include places associated with World War II.

- Classic London: see the major sights like Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London. In a day tour there is usually time to visit 2-3 places for a more in-depth tour.
