The tickets worked well in those areas requiring them. Make sure you will go to enough places requiring payment to make them worth the expense.

Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.

The 95-story Shard was designed by world renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. This architectural marvel is the tallest building in the European Union, and its distinctive shape has redefined the London skyline. If you visit The View From The Shard, you'll get a breathtaking 360-degree view of London from more than 300 meters above the city.

Cutty Sark was the last and fastest tea clippers to be built in Britain, and you can learn all about its journeys across the oceans on board the ship itself. It is now permanently docked in London's leafy Greenwich area. Cutty Sark, an award-winning visitor attraction, is easy to reach via the DLR – it has its very own stop!

Built between 1886 and 1894, Tower Bridge is undoubtedly a symbol of London. This combined Victorian-era bascule and suspension bridge crosses the River Thames, connecting two central London boroughs. Due to the iconic visual status of Tower Bridge, it is often confused with London Bridge, which is situated some 0.5 miles upstream.

The Old Royal Naval College is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an architectural gem in Greenwich, London. Sir Christopher Wren's riverside masterpiece hosts some of the finest buildings and structures in the UK, including the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul, the Water Gates, the Victorian Skittle Alley, and the Painted Hall. Sir James Thornhill’s magnificent Painted Hall, is Britain's answer to the Sistine Chapel. The epic Baroque artistic masterpiece – with 40,000 square feet of awe-inspiring painted walls and ceiling – is an essential part of any visit to the Old Royal Naval College.
