Historical Sites in London

Now there are literally 1000s of great places to visit when you vacation in London. Visit any of them if you simply want to have a fun trip. But you can make your trip to London both fun and educational at the same time.

I assume you have already found a place to stay and now you’re about to hit the town. If you’re visiting London specifically to see historical tourist sites, there are 100s but I would recommend the following, especially if you have only a short time to spend when you vacation in London:
