Must visits

If you go to the trouble of spending time in London, there are some things that are just too rich to miss. There are great monuments and stunning cultural treasures from not only British history but relicts of ancient civilizations as well. In the British Museum alone are famous artifacts of ancient Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian and other civilizations. Historical original documents like the Magna Carta (1215 AD) and Gutenberg’s Bible (1455) also “live” in the museum.

Depending on your interests, any number of London attractions could land on this list. Here is a list of some of the more common “must see” attractions in London.
