Next head towards Buckingham Palace. People are allowed to tour this palace only during specified weeks. So you’ll have to take a look at the schedule before your visit. Else, you may admire the regal palace from the outside. You may also get to see the Changing of The Queen’s Guard Ceremony if you arrive at the palace at the right time. The palace estate has a couple of attractions that are open to the public all year round. These include two museums, namely Royal Mews and Queen’s Gallery.

On your second day in London, start off by visiting the Tower of London which is a historic castle and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then opt for a Thame Cruise which would allow you to access the water of the tranquil river and allow you to see the city by the banks. Then visit HMS Belfast which is a museum ship. The ship served in between 1939 to 1963 and then was permanently moored on River Thames and turned into a museum ship in 1971. You may enjoy a quick bite at the small cafe here. Then it is time to visit the iconic London Bridge and Tower Bridge. These are also the most visited tourist's attractions in the city. The remaining time of the day will be spent in exploring the Westminster neighborhood again. Your first stop here will be the Churchill War Rooms.
