7 Days in London: Ultimate 7-Day Itinerary

Ultimate 7 Days London Itinerary

Are you going to London for a week? Wondering what to do and where to go?

Thanks to my itinerary for visiting London in a week, you will have all the answers to your questions: from my good tips to avoid queuing to visits to do day by day, you will know exactly how to organize your days!

And that’s not all, I also offer you my selection of the best hotels to stay during these 7 days in London and ideas for activities to do for a family trip.

So what to do in London in 1 week? 

Tips to skip the queue in London and save time

London certainly has its place in the top of the most touristic destinations in the world!

The English capital, like all the other European capitals (from SpainItaly or France) attracts millions of visitors every year . And all these travelers will want to do like you: discover the essentials like the Tower of London or Westminster Abbey.

It is therefore necessary to expect to wait sometimes for hours to access it.

Well, don’t worry, it’s no longer inevitable! By following my advice, you can optimize your visit to London by avoiding waiting.

Here are the 2 solutions I recommend to save as much time as possible during your week-long London itinerary:

1. London Pass

Buying the London Pass for your one-week London itinerary is the first solution I offer you.

By giving you direct access to all of London’s sights , it means you won’t have to wait in line! We understand better why this kind of Pass is now adopted by all major cities.

Super practical, the London Pass, which is in fact an electronic pass to download to your smartphone, must be scanned at the entrances to each site (provided it is included of course).

It has a validity period of between 1 to 10 days. You can choose when purchasing the Pass.

The London Pass comes in the form of a tourist credit which is deducted each time you enter the main tourist sites: for example the 7-day London Pass at 740 credits, which corresponds to €740 of entry while it only costs 167€ on purchase!!

The London Pass is undoubtedly the most complete pass for visiting London in 7 days!

Here’s what the London Pass includes:

  • Access to over 80 of the best sites and museums in London which is the majority of the must-see attractions that I have included in this one week London tour: Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Tower Bridge …
  • A hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour. For anyone who cannot walk for a long time or if you are going to visit London with your children for 1 week, this will be useful.
  • Discounts in some souvenir shops
  • A tourist guide to London including timetables and access information for each site.

To buy your London City Pass, you just have to click here.

There is also another Pass, the London Go City Explorer Pass which offers passes based on the number of attractions you want to visit. There are therefore Passes for 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 attractions.

You can book it by clicking here!

2. Skip-the-line tickets to London tourist attractions

To visit London in 1 week, if you do not want to take the London Pass, the second solution is to buy skip-the-line entrance tickets for each site, on a case-by-case basis.

The principle is the same: do not waste time and be able to quickly access the monuments without queuing. It requires planning your day-to-day program a little in advance to book them, but with my one-week tour of London, you can organize yourself.

There are skip-the-line tickets for major historical monuments but also for fun and original activities that you might not have thought of and that you can do in London in 1 week.

I put some of them below but don’t worry you will also find them throughout the article.

Click on the names of the places (in orange) / the green buttons to reserve them:

Visit London in 1 week: the best itinerary

We are now tackling the essential: my 7-day London itinerary!

I present to you my schedule of visits to do each day with the walking times or the different ways of getting around between each place.

I prefer to specify that to follow all this program, I leave on the basis of a whole week in London but also on the principle that you have purchased your London Pass or skip-the-line tickets beforehand .

Without it, it will be difficult to do everything if you lose 2 hours waiting in line each time.

Day 1: The historic center

A Week in London – Day 1 Itinerary

The visits of day 1:

A. Big Ben
B. Westminster Abbey
C. Buckingham Palace
D. Trafalgar Square
E. London Eye
F. Tate Britain and/or Tate Modern

A. Big Ben

Start your week-long stay in London by first going to greet the emblem of the city: the legendary Big Ben.

A must for your first stay in the capital, this huge tower surmounted by the famous clock 7 meters in diameter is of course worth a look.

The Clock Tower as it is called (the name of Big Ben actually designating the bell located inside the tower), is located in the heart of historic London on the banks of the Thames.

It is part of the Houses of Parliament (also called the Palace of Westminster ) which you can admire at the same time.

London itinerary 7 days
Big Ben, a must for a 7-day stay in London!

B. Westminster Abbey

Right next to Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey awaits you for an interesting visit into the world of British sovereigns.

An essential historical monument in London, this abbey has been the place of coronation for many kings and queens of England.

Inside, several possible visit routes to get to know the history while enjoying the beautiful architecture. There are also several tombs to see (including that of Mary Stuart).

I recommend the audio guide for this tour or book a 2 hour guided tour here.

Tips for your London itinerary:

As there are often almost 2 hours of waiting in front of the entrance, I really advise you to have a skip-the-line ticket.

The London Pass includes the visit of Westminster Abbey, but if you don’t have it, you must buy an early access ticket.

To stick to the program for the day, it is best to be at the abbey when it opens (9:30 a.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. on Saturdays, closed on Sundays).

C. Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Royal Guard

Visiting London in 7 days is of course going to meet Buckingham Palace, the main residence of Queen Elizabeth II.

The palace is only a few minutes walk from Big Ben and, if you get there in the late morning, you can watch the changing of the royal guard.

This solemn ceremony which attracts crowds all year round takes place every 2 days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday) at 11am. The Royal Guards exchange teams in a carefully executed parade and to the sound of brass band.

To get a good seat, it is advisable to arrive one hour before the start of the ceremony. Otherwise you risk being relegated to the back and seeing nothing.

In rainy weather (I see you coming…but I assure you that it is sometimes sunny in London ^^), the changing of the guard can be cancelled. To check, you can consult this calendar online.

Tips for your London itinerary:

The interior of Buckingham Palace is open to the public only 2 months a year (usually August and September).

Provided you book well in advance  because places are limited, you can choose between 3 visits:

D. Trafalgar Square & National Gallery Museum

Your week-long London itinerary continues with a visit to the National Gallery, one of the city’s finest and richest museums.

But before that, head to Trafalguar Square first (15 minute walk from Buckingham, via St James Park).

Trafalguar Square is one of the capital’s most popular squares, with plenty going on. It is characterized by its 4 large statues of black lions which surround the fountain in the center.

The National Gallery overlooks Trafalguar Square and I highly recommend a visit to this superb museum, especially as admission is free (as with all UK national museums).

This art museum was founded in 1824 and displays an impressive collection of well-known works including Van Gogh ‘s Sunflowers and other paintings by Monet, Cézanne, Picasso, Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci.

Count 1 to 2 hours of visit.

The timetables can be found on the official website.

The National Gallery of London

E. Admire the city from above thanks to the London Eye

I suggest you then move on to a rather original activity that should be very popular with children: a ride in the huge wheel of the London Eye.

Rest assured, this is not a merry-go-round but rather an attraction for everyone allowing you to admire the city from above at more than 130 meters above sea level. The wheel (which is by the way the largest Ferris wheel in Europe ) turns very slowly and a complete turn takes about 30 minutes.

After the museum, therefore, return to the historic center (which will take you 10-15 minutes on foot or by bus ) and head towards the London Eye, located a few meters from Big Ben.

Attention, you must have reserved your places in advance to be able to go up. During the ascent, enjoy the magnificent panoramic view of the city and savor the moment.

Just click here.

If you want to combine several activities, you also have this ticket which is interesting to save some money: London Eye + Cruise on the Thames + Hop-on hop-off bus.

London Eye, London itinerary

F. Tate Britain et/ou Tate Modern Museum

Once you have descended from the clouds, come back to your senses then end the day with a visit to two new must-see museums in London: the Tate Britain and/or the Tate Modern Museums. They are both located opposite each other, each on a bank of the Thames.

The Tate Britain sits directly opposite the London Eye (on the North Bank) and is dedicated to classic British art. For example, you can see works by Hogarth, Blake or Turner.

The Tate Modern, just opposite the first, is dedicated to contemporary art.

The two museums are connected by a river shuttle which allows you to visit them one after the other. It runs every 40 minutes.

Of course, both museums are free and open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tips for your London itinerary:

If you want to have a good view of London at night, you can swap the London Eye tour with the museum visit.

For this, after the National Gallery:

  • Head to the River Thames and the Embankment Pier
  • Take the river shuttle to Milbank Pier which will stop outside the entrance to Tate Britain.
  • For the Tate Modern, stop at Bankside Pier.

You will just have to take the shuttle back to reach the London Eye. If you calculate well, you will be there right at sunset!

Day 2: St. Paul’s Cathedral / The City

London itinerary 1 week
A Week in London – Day 2 Itinerary

The visits of day 2:

A. St. Paul’s Cathedral
B. The City
C. The Tower of London
D. Tower Bridge
E. The Shard

A. St. Paul’s Cathedral

Let’s go for the second day of your 1 week London itinerary.

I suggest you spend this day in the City district where you can start with a visit to Saint Paul’s Cathedral. This emblematic historical and religious monument of London dates from the 17th century.

Admire its baroque architecture from the outside then enter to see:

  • The very beautiful nave
  • The Whispering Gallery and its amazing acoustics
  • La Stone Gallery
  • La Golden Gallery
  • The crypt
  • A superb panoramic view from the dome (85 meters high).

If you have purchased the London Pass, access to Saint-Paul is included.

Otherwise, skip-the-line tickets are to be reserved here.

B. The City

The City district, London’s business district but also the geographical center of the city, is an impossible stopover when you have the chance to spend a week in London.

After visiting the cathedral, take the time to stroll through the streets of the district, admire the buildings and enjoy the atmosphere of the place.

Do not miss the emblem of the district, the famous “Gherkins” skyscraper in the shape of a large pickle.

What I can also advise you during this walk is to go for a walk to the Sky Garden. It is the highest public garden in London and it allows you to enjoy a panoramic view from the rooftops.

To get your tickets (free), you must book in advance here.

The Gherkin, in the City, London, London itinerary 1 week
The Gherkin, in the City, London

C. The Tower of London

In the City, there are not only buildings and businessmen, but also historical monuments such as the famous Tower of London.

Located 15 minutes walk from the “Gherkin”, it is opposite the Tower Bridge (the next step).

The Tower of London dates from 1066 and has served throughout history as a royal residence, prison and also a place of torture and execution. So many macabre stories that will be revealed to you during the visit.

You can discover the torture chambers but also visit the very beautiful outdoor gardens and, the highlight of the show, admire the Crown Jewels.

It is a visit particularly appreciated by children because it is very playful and commented by guides in period costumes.

Tips for your London itinerary:

The guided tour is included in the price of the entrance ticket (ticket to be taken in advance to avoid the queue). They start every 30 minutes at the main entrance.

The London Pass gives access to the tower but you can also buy your tickets separately.

The tower of London

D. The Tower Bridge

Continue the day by taking a few steps to now reach the Tower Bridge.

A symbol of London too, this magnificent Gothic weighbridge with its sky blue frames is known to all. It connects the North and South shores and sometimes opens to allow large boats to pass. At the time of its construction, in the 19th century, it was also the most sophisticated weighbridge in the world.

You can simply admire the Tower Bridge from the shore by having a snack for example, then cross it on foot. There are quite a few small shops and cafes around.

You can also visit the old engine room inside one of the towers. On the upper decks, a transparent glass walkway placed just above the Thames allows you to treat yourself to some chills.

The visit to Tower Bridge is included in the London Pass.

If you only want to take a skip-the-line ticket for this attraction, click here.

Tower Bridge, London
The Tower Bridge, London

E. The Shard

At the end of this long day, you will probably be tired and I therefore suggest an activity that is both unusual and relaxing to end this journey on a quiet note.

Still in the City area, head to The Shard just a 10 minute walk from Tower Bridge.

This huge building is London’s newest landmark, but it also holds the title of tallest viewing platform in Western Europe. Climb up and enjoy a 360° view of the whole city at sunset.

You can reserve your tickets for The Shard.

Day 3: Places of Interest to Visit

London itinerary
A Week in London – Day 3 Itinerary

The visits of day 3:

A. Notting Hill
B. The Natural History Museum
C. Hyde Park
D. Oxford Street
E. Soho
F. Piccadilly Circus
G. Covent Garden

A. Notting Hill and Portobello Market

For your third day in London, I suggest you start the morning by going for a walk in Notting Hill, to the west of the city.

This upscale area made famous by the cult film “Notting Hill at first sight” is one of the most beautiful in London.

With its grand pastel-colored mansionsantique shops, cobbled streets and flower-lined sidewalks, Notting Hill really has a lot of charm.

In the morning, the area hosts the very popular Portobello Road Market. This is an opportunity to stroll, do some shopping and have fun with the street-food stands.

You can also book a guided tour so you don’t miss a thing.

Tips for your London itinerary:

If you are going on a week-long London itinerary during the month of August, be aware that a carnival takes place in Notting Hilll on the last weekend of the month. Disguises of all kinds, Caribbean music, street-food and a frenzied atmosphere are on the agenda.

B. The Natural History Museum

Continue the day by now heading to London’s Natural History Museum. You will get there in about 20 minutes by bus.

This is a truly magnificent museum housed in a very beautiful Gothic building. Huge and very rich, it is renowned as one of the most beautiful and largest museums in London.

With its 5 million annual visitors, it is also the most visited natural history museum in Europe.

You would have to spend a whole day there to see everything so I advise you for this time to limit yourself to 2 hours maximum to have time to make the next visits.

C. Hyde Park

For this third stage, it’s time to get some fresh air in London’s largest green space: Hyde Park.

It is one of the most beautiful city parks in the world and most Londoners meet there to play sports, walk or picnic on summer weekends.

At the end of the year, a huge Christmas market, a funfair (Winter Wonderland) and the largest ice rink in the United Kingdom settle in Hyde Park.

If your one-week stay in London takes place in the summer, then you will have the opportunity to attend the concerts and festivals that are organized there every year in the summer.

Hyde Park, London 7 day itinerary

D. A bit of shopping on Oxford Street

Leave Hyde Park via the North East exit (Marble Arch) and join Oxford Street.

We can compare this large shopping avenue to the Champs-Élysées. Over 2.5 km long, there are more than 600 shops including major British brands such as Mark & ​​Spencer, TopShop, Mush, Primark, Urban Outfitters etc.

So I suggest you do a bit of shopping or window shopping while heading to the next stop.

London 1 week itinerary
Oxford street, Londres

E. Soho

You will land directly in the Soho district at the end of Oxford Street.

Soho is the smallest district of London but also the liveliest and most festive. With its many theatres, comedy clubs, restaurants, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs, it attracts Londoners and tourists who come to party every night of the week.

A 7-day stay in London would not be completely successful without a little musical evening! They are very numerous, especially in the Soho district.

In particular, you can attend a performance of Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre. Tickets on sale here! 

The no less famous “Phantom of the Opera” is also played regularly. Tickets can be  purchased in advance right here!

Tips for your London itinerary:

Harry Potter fans will be delighted to take part in a guided tour of Soho on the cult locations of the films.

Meet your guide at Diagon Alley , Gringotts Bank , Pier 9 3/4, or Knockturn Alley. The visit is super well done and the guide at the top!

To book your Harry Potter guided tour here.

F. Piccadilly Circus

Stroll through Soho and follow the crowds to arrive at Piccadilly Circus, this famous square characterized by its giant advertising screens. This is also an unmissable event for revelers.

G. Covent Garden

Covent Garden is also located in the vicinity, in continuity with Soho and Piccadilly Circus. Walk another 10 minutes or so to get there.

Covent Garden is characterized by the large glass roof, which once housed the old London market halls (until 1970), and which remained in place after the move.

It is also a very touristic area with several shops, restaurants, art galleries and street shows. There is also the London Transport Museum which I advise you to visit if you have time.

End your evening with a good restaurant in the area before returning to rest.

Day 4: Walk in London

London 1 week itinerary
A Week in London – Day 4 Itinerary

The visits of day 4:

A. Hampstead Village
B. Camden Town
C. Regent’s Park
D. Abbey Road (en option)
E. Madame Tussauds ou British Museum

A. Hampstead Village

This 1-week London itinerary continues with, for this fourth day, the discovery of the North of the city.

Leave in the morning for Hampstead Village. It is a rural and peaceful district located in the heights of the city. A walk in Hampstead Village allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city without leaving London.

On the program: numerous flower gardens, beautiful Victorian residences, cafes and restaurants, for a bucolic and exotic morning.

Hampstead Village is just 20 minutes by tube from central London.

B. Camden Town

Impossible to visit London in a week without going through Camden Town.

It’s the trendy district of the city and a bit like the headquarters of alternative cultures. Eccentric decors, unusual shops, street entertainment, street-food galore and live music await you in this one-of-a-kind place.

The local market, the Camden Lock Market, is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm with its many stalls selling all kinds of objects and food from all over the world to enjoy along the Regent’s Canal.

Camden town, London 1 week itinerary

C. Regent’s park

A 10-minute walk south of Camden Town is Regent’s Park, another green lung of London. Very flowery, this pretty park covers 166 hectares.

This is an opportunity for a romantic stroll along the trails.

What you can see in Regent’s Park:

  • The lake where to go boating or pedalo
  • Several play areas for children
  • Restaurants and cafes
  • London Zoo
  • The Queen’s Mary Gardens rose garden (must see especially in spring/summer!).
Regents Park, London
Regents Park, London

D. Abbey Road (en option)

This fourth stage of the day is a must for Beatles fans and an optional detour for others.

Abbey Road and its legendary pedestrian crossing are less than 2 km from Regent’s Park. It is here, in the studios of Abbey Road, that the legendary English group recorded their album of the same name.

And the photo in the album was of course taken on this pedestrian crossing. So you can take the opportunity to have fun reproducing the famous shot (trying not to block traffic ^^).

Near the studios, a souvenir shop is dedicated to the Beatles.

E. Madame Tussauds or the British Museum

And to end this day, I offer you two visits to choose from:

  • Madame Tussauds: it is a mythical wax museum in London.

It’s about 20 minutes by bus from Abbey Road. It is one of the most visited museums in the city, the game consisting of photographing yourself in the arms of the biggest stars (who are indeed very realistic for the most part).

The visit lasts 2 to 3 hours. You can book your tickets in advance by clicking on this link.

  • The British Museum: if you prefer culture and history (and free entry!), then I would rather recommend a visit to the British Museum to end your 4th day in London.

From Regent’s Park, it’s a 20-minute tube ride . Housed in a magnificent building, this anthropology museum has many archaeological remains including several mummies and the famous Rosetta Stone.

The museum’s collection is one of the richest in the world with over 7 million exhibits!

British Museum, London

Day 5: The Neighborhood of Greenwich

We slow down the pace a bit for this fifth day that I suggest you spend in the pretty district of Greenwich. It is easily accessible by boat (departure from the historic center of London in particular).

The main things to see and do in Greenwich:

  • Stunning Victorian and Georgian architecture
  • Large wooded parks
  • A nice walk along the river
  • The famous Greenwich meridian (ticket on sale here) at the Royal Observatory
  • The splendid view of London from the Observatory
  • The Cutty Sark (ticket here!)  huge sailboat built in 1869 and converted into a museum
  • Greenwich Market
  • The National Maritime Museum: one of the most important maritime museums in the world.

Day 6: Harry Potter Studio Tour

If you are lucky enough to go on a 1 week London itinerary, you will have time to visit the surroundings of the city a little.

One of the main attractions around London are the Warners Studios where the Harry Potter films were filmed . Whether you are a fan of the little wizard or simply a follower of the world of cinema, this is a really interesting and unusual visit.

The studios have been transformed into a museum and exhibit to the public all of the film sets, sets, costumes, artifacts and other larger than life objects used in the 8 films.

This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a magical world and discover the smallest secrets and details of filming!

Children will love trying their hand at flying broomsticks, tasting the famous Butterbeer or strolling Diagon Alley.

The tour  includes return bus travel from London.

It is imperative to book this visit in advance.

Day 7: Last Day in or around London

For this seventh and last day in London, I offer you several options to choose from, whether you decide to visit London more in depth or to explore the surroundings.

Option 1: Go on an excursion around London

  • Getaway to Stratford-Upon-Avon

It is the birthplace of Shakespeare and also a very charming rural town just 1 hour drive from London.

You can marvel at the typical little English cottages, take bucolic walks and admire the house where Shakespeare was born and lived.

For an organized excursion with round trip included, you can book a day-trip here.

  • Visit Windsor Castle

Windsor is another charming little town in the London suburbs. It only takes 45 minutes by train to get there from Paddington station.

The main attraction in Windsor is visiting its castle, which is also the secondary residence of the royal family. A calm and relaxing day ahead.

Entrance tickets must be booked in advance there! 

There are also  organized excursions with guided tours  departing from London which include not only  Windsor  but also  Oxford and Stonehenge.  You must reserve it by clicking here. 

  • Cambridge

Cambridge is one of the most beautiful cities to visit around London. It can be reached in 45 minutes by train from King’s Cross station.

This world famous university city allows you to have a great day. The magnificent university with its Gothic buildings is one of the main visits to be made.

Several guided tours of the city are also offered:

  • Oxford

Oxford is also a famous university city, a little bigger than Cambridge. Its architecture is just as remarkable and will amaze you.

I strongly recommend that you visit the university (it’s like Hogwarts!).

Oxford is an hour by train from London.

As I told you above, the excursion that goes to Stratford-Upon-Avon also goes to Oxford. It is to be reserved by clicking here.

Here too, you will have the choice between several guided tours:

  • Brighton

If you fancy the great outdoors and salt water, then head to Brighton for the last day of your 1 week stay in London.

This pretty coastal town is less than an hour by train from London and attracts many Londoners every weekend who come to relax.

To see here: the beautiful pebble beachrestaurants by the sea and the cobbled streets.

For the more modern version, you can also climb the British Airways tower where a glass gondola will take you 138 meters high to contemplate the view of the entire coast.

Tickets are on sale directly here!

The famous red phone booths

Option 2: Stay in London for one more day

  • Discover the Chelsea neighborhood

Take advantage of this seventh day to visit the Chelsea district of central London.

Chelsea is a very upscale affluent area with lots of luxury stores and designer boutiques on King’s Road Avenue. There is also the elegant Duck of York Square, as well as chic bars and restaurants.

You can also visit the contemporary art museum “Saatchi Gallery”.

But Chelsea is fortunately not just “bling bling”: get off the beaten track a bit to discover quaint and colorful little houses in pretty, peaceful alleys, notably on Burnsall Street, Godfrey Street and Bywater Street. This last street also regularly attracts film shoots and photo shoots.

  • Take a cruise on the Thames

After your morning in Chelsea, take advantage of the afternoon to discover the city from another angle by treating yourself to a short cruise on the Thames.

Several companies (City Cruises, Crown River Cruise, Thames Clippers and Thames River Services) offer trips from 20 minutes to 3 hours on the river. The piers are located in particular:

  • near Big Ben
  • near the Tower of London and Tower Bridge
  • near the London Eye.

There are also hop-on hop-off cruises where you can hop on and off the boat at your leisure at major sights.

You can book it by clicking here.
