Beyond traditional tourist attractions like Buckingham Palace, London visitors should take a look at the following places to see what local residents enjoy.

Marylebone Stroll

An affluent, residential district, Marylebone Stroll is home to the Wallace Collection. The museum features 25 galleries of 18th-century French paintings and a world-class armory. The area also provides haute couture shopping and specialty stores on Marylebone High Street.

The Tate Modern

Designed by Herzog and De Meuron, the Tate Modern was formerly a power station on the Thames. The art gallery’s exhibits have included works by artists such as Ai Wei Wei and Tacita Dean, who used visual media to celebrate 35mm filmmaking. Just outside the venue is Borough Market, a place to enjoy local foods following an art tour.

The London Eye

A giant Ferris wheel, the London Eye takes visitors to heights that provide unobstructed views of the city. The ride takes 30 minutes and involves entering a glass capsule that holds 25 people. At night, visitors to the London Eye can go on a champagne flight.
