Cleopatra's Needle is an Egyptian obelisk. It's old, it's from Egypt, it's now in London and it's said to be a tourist attraction. It may be old, from Egypt and now in London, but it sure isn't a tourist attraction you have to see.
If you want to pay a lot of money to see wax figures of celebrities, Madame Tussaud's is the place to be! Be aware that a lot of other visitors will end up on your photos too. It's extremely crowded!
Speaker's Corner is said to be one of the most famous places on earth, symbolizing democracy in the world. If you like empty places, Speaker's Corner is the place to be!
The changing of the guard is one of the most well-known London tourist attractions. And it's really kind of entertaining, if you actually get to see the dudes. But if you really want to see them you'd better be early, otherwise the crowd in front of the black railing will obstruct your view.
Greenwich Village is a highly overrated London tourist attraction. It's a long way to get there - all uphill, and all you see is a clock and a stone to step on.
The London Dungeon is a tourist attraction for kids and jumpy old ladies! If you enjoy being scared, watch a scary movie rather than visiting this London tourist attraction. That's scarier and much cheaper!
7. Big Ben
London's most familiar landmark. You need not plan to visit it, you can't escape it anyway, and no matter what you plan on doing in London, you WILL see it more than you had thought. If you are an overseas visitor, you can't take a tour anyway.
St. Paul's Cathedral is London's number one cathedral to visit as a tourist. Well, actually it's the only cathedral we know, but if you've seen one cathedral, you've seen them all.
Westminster Abbey is famous for funerals - funerals of royals, poets, warlords and other significant figures. Well, that's precisely what you'll find there - buried people.
10. HMS Belfast
A rusty warship in the middle of London as a tourist attraction? Don't you think that's a little bit odd?
