Ever wondered which are the 10 best landmarks in London? Which famous monuments and historical sites should a tourist definitely not miss? Here is a list of the 10 must-see landmarks that every visitor to London simply must visit.

#1 – Big Ben

If tourists only take one photograph in London then it’s invariably this one – Big Ben. ‘Big Ben’ is actually the name of the bell, rather than the clockface, and it stands in the Elizabeth Tower at one end of the Houses of Parliament. Did you know that you can actually get permission to climb up Big Ben, and stand in the belfry whilst the bell goes off? (Don’t worry, ear-plugs are provided!) Read Drummerboy’s review here.

#2 – St. Paul’s Cathedral

St. Paul’s Cathedral is arguably London’s most beautiful building, by the country’s greatest-ever architect – Christopher Wren. Every tourist should definitely make sure they visit the famous Whispering Gallery. We also recommend a Choral Evensong service. Opening times: 8.30 AM to 4.30 PM (Mon–Sat); Last admission 4 PM; Galleries open from 9.30 AM; Last admission to the galleries 4.15 PM. Cost: Adults £15.00; Children £6.00 (6–17); Infants free (5 and under); Family ticket £36.00.

#3 – Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge should be a pure piece of kitsch… a mock-gothic building built in the 19th-century. But its two castle-like towers have become synonymous with London around the world. If yoiu’re lucky then you might be able to see Tower Bridge open and close. Opening times: 9.30 AM to 6 PM (daily, Oct–Mar), 10 AM to 6.30 PM (daily, Apr–Sep); Last admission 1 hour before closing time. Cost: Adults £8.00; Children £3.40 (5–15); Infants free (under-5); Family ticket £18.00.

#4 – Nelson’s Column

Nelson’s Column celebrates the life and death of the country’s greatest naval hero – Horatio Nelson. He stares down on Trafalgar Square from his lofty pedestal 185-feet above the pigeons, guarded by four huge bronze lions.

#5 – London Eye

The London Eye is one of the capital’s newest landmarks, built for the millennial celebrations in 2000. As one of the largest observation wheels in the world, it offers visitors a 360 degree view up to 25 miles, in a trip that lasts for half-an-hour. You can read Drummerboy’s review here. Opening times: 10 AM to 8.30 PM (Jan–Mar), 10 AM to 9 PM (Apr–Jun), 10 AM to 9.30 PM (Jul–Aug), 10 AM to 8.30 PM (Sep–Dec). Cost: Adults £18.60; Children £9.54 (4–15); Infants free (under-4); Family ticket £56.28.

#6 – Houses of Parliament

The Houses of Parliament are home to the UK government. It is made up of two chambers, the Lords and the Commons, and both are open to the public. As well as touring the entire building, you can also attend debates when the MPs are sitting. Opening times: House of Commons public gallery (when in session): 2.30 PM to 10.30 PM (Mon, Tue); 12:30 AM to 7.30 PM (Wed); 10.30 AM to 6.30 PM (Thu); 9.30 AM to 3 PM (Fri).

Britain an overrated rip off: Lonely Planet
Britain is crammed with overpriced restaurants, plagued by expensive hotels and let down by overrated tourist attractions, according to the latest edition of the Lonely Planet guide to the country.
In a warts-and-all review of the country as a holiday destination the well-known travel bible concludes it "has had its day" especially for cash-strapped natives.
"If you're on a tight budget, there's no getting away from it -- Britain ain't cheap," said lead author David Else who dispatched contributors to every corner of the land in search of good deals, but found few
