Looking for the best London Attractions? Our Discovering London map shows you lots of places to visit and things to do in London – all of which can you travel to by Tube. Whether you’re looking for a museum, a London landmark or a bit of history, there’s lots to choose from. We’ve also included some London Pass favourites like the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Kew Gardens and The British Museum (which are free to enter for London Pass holders).
The map above shows which Tube station to get off at for each London Attraction whether you’re discovering somewhere new or have a destination in mind.
