Central London is in fact best explored on foot. Both the tube and buses provide excellent transport throughout the city. There is just too much to see in London to write about every attraction, however, most agree that the top ten attractions in London are: Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Kensington Palace, the British Museum, National History Museum, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, Piccadilly Circus and the National Gallery. Besides these attractions there are many more that are worth exploring and following are some that are not in the top ten list:

Trafalgar Square, at the heart of London, is famous for its fountain, pigeons, giant lions and Nelson's Column. The square is surrounded by some of the best galleries in London. The National Gallery has one of the world's most impressive art collections, while nearby St Martin in the Fields church, has a craft market and a brass-rubbing centre in the crypt.

The Tate Britain holds an impressive historical archive of British art. Built in 1897, the Tate has undergone a vast expansion program, adding ten new galleries and five refurbished galleries. The nearby Tate Modern, focusing on modern art, is its sister gallery and opened in 2000, housed in the former Bankside Power Station,

Covent Garden was once a vegetable market, but is now one of the hippest places to visit in London. The piazza here is full of street performers, trendy cafés, bars, old-style pubs, restaurants, and trendy shops. The national Opera and London Transport museum is also located here. Nearby is the Gay-friendly Old Compton street.

The Victoria and Albert Museum, just adjacent to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, is the largest museum of decorative arts in the world. While in the area you may want to visit Kensington Palace (where Lady Diana lived), the Royal Albert Hall, and lovely Hyde Park (don't miss the highly entertaining Speakers corner on Sundays!)..

London boasts numerous fun weekend markets such as; Bohemian Camden Market with everything from second hand clothing to furniture centred around the picturesque Camden Lock. Portobello road Market (Notting Hill) is probably London's most famous weekend market, with antiques, bric-a-brac, jewellery and everything in between. For antiques, check out Alfie's Antique Market off the beaten track off Marylebone Road. Other noteworthy markets are: Brick Lane, Brixton Market, Greenwich Market, and Petticoat Lane.
