Queen's House, Greenwich

Shereen Rayle
You'll find a ton of beautiful scenery in Greenwich (you can reach it by Underground or tour boat), but the beautiful building that is the Queen's House is a must-visit. It houses wonderful exhibitions and the architecture is wonderful.

One of the ultimate landmarks of London, you can walk across the bridge and enjoy the view of the Thames or take a stroll along the river to get even better views of the bridge.

Even if you aren't into the art, though there really is something for everyone, as most are artifacts from different cultures (example: Greek sculptures), the museum is worth it just for the amazing Chihuly in the atrium and the gorgeous conservatory ceiling.

The V&A features tons of textiles, pottery and other exhibits from around the world. Some of the most spectacular being a large handwoven prayer rug and the full-size, complete Shogun uniforms.

Known as a relatively expensive department store, it costs nothing at all to wander around the luxurious departments. Make sure to go through the market stalls though. They sell everything you can possibly want, from macarons to jams to sushi. Many tiny restaurants as well.

One of the most beautiful parks in London, it has a Japanese garden, two children's playgrounds, sports fields, a restaurant, cafe and more. You can play giant chess here and also see outdoor art. Bring your walking shoes. You can take the underground to Holland Park Station and walk a few blocks to the entrance. It's like you're somewhere else. The squirrels are really aggressive here. Don't stop to pay attention to them, as they expect to be fed if you have any food on you.
