Transcript

If you lived in London your whole life, you still wouldn’t have time to see everything, but there are some things you just shouldn’t miss.

The London Eye, a huge observation wheel on the Thames, will give you a bird’s-eye view of the city. When skies are clear, you can see as far out as 25 miles.

The iconic dome of St Paul’s Cathedral can’t be missed. Visit to learn the history of this beautiful building, which has been rebuilt several times over the centuries.

You can’t visit the royal family at Buckingham Palace, but it’s worth a visit just to watch the changing of the guard and take a tour.

Everybody has heard of Big Ben, but you might not know that it’s the name of the bell, not the tower itself–that’s Elizabeth Tower.

Trafalgar Square, with Nelson’s Column in the middle, is where London’s biggest parades and celebrations end up; it’s London’s center.

The Tower of London might be the most haunted place in the world. Even if you don’t run into any ghosts, you can see the Crown Jewels.

Westminster Abbey is where England’s royalty has been crowned since 1066. It’s also where they’ve been buried.

These are just some of the places you'll be busy exploring on a trip to London -- it's a city where you can always find something new!
