For a small island like London, everywhere you look, there’s always something to do in a limited amount of time. This is because there’s so many attractions that are so close together. That’s all fine but with the majority of them, you will have to spend at least an hour to relax and explore. Believe me, I’ve been here since 1991. I hadn’t realised it before but since starting my blog, I’ve come to realise London has so much to offer; its history, its culture, its multi-culturism and its language. As the HSBC commercial says:

How can something so small be such a big part of everyone’s lives?

So, in order to make the most out of London, I have made an itinerary: 2 days in London post. Let’s get going.

The attractions mentioned below are recommended time to visit and it’s for you to use it as a guide. If you want to spend more time in a particular attraction be my guest. Be aware you might have to spend less time in another attraction or skip one or some altogether. Between attractions spare 1 hour for lunch and buy The London Pass.

You can the itinerary a little bit to personalise your holiday by telling you how long each attraction takes. I will make an itinerary for a self-guided tour. An itinerary with a private tour and a London Pass. I will tell you how long each one takes. (For 1 day in London, 2 days in London, 3 days, 4 days, 5 days, 6 days and 7 days etc).
