There are a lot of things to see and do in London and even though I’ve visited my beloved city a couple of times by now, there are a few spots that I just have to go to whenever I’m there no matter how less time I have or how often I’ve been there. Whenever I’m there I usually walk a lot, try to see some new spots, take some walks away from the main streets and get away from the crowded spots. But when it comes to sights London has some really beautiful spots to offer so today I’ll give you my Top 10 Tourist Spots and advise you to be a tourist for a day when you visit Britain’s capital city even though this usually might not be your thing.
