Walking in London

Jump to last reply

Perhaps the best idea I had when I was visiting Italy was to get up really early in the morning (5am) and go walk around and re-see the sites when no one else was around. My friend and I walked the entire time, and we saw the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum (from outside, but you go there for the architecture), and the Pantheon (also form outside) in about 2 and a half hours. We were done before the Pantheon even opened! I got tons of good pictures of just the attractions, without tons of tourists clogging up my shots (the Trevi fountain was especially bad during the day).

I would like to recreate the London version of this while I am there, but I am less familiar with the city and the attractions. My questions are: What things are impressive/worth seeing just for their exterior (in other words, when they aren't open)? What groupings of these things can I realistically walk between in 2-2.5 hours? I have maps, but as it always goes, the distances on maps always look smaller than they feel when you are walking :)

Thank you all in advance!
Alison
