Flag of United Kingdom East Ham, United Kingdom

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, London is a traveller’s delight. Catering to a wide range of tastes, there’s something for everyone in the English capital. London boasts myriad historical sites, art galleries, sporting attractions, world-class restaurants and eateries, high fashion outlets, and cultural events. Take a cruise down the iconic River Thames, visit iconic Big Ben and the Tower of London, say hi to the Queen at Buckingham Palace, catch a show at a famous West End theatre or be one with nature in much-loved Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens.

Things to do in East Ham

  • Greenwich

    Greenwich is an area of south east London, England, located 5.5 mi east-southeast of Charing Cross. It is located within the Royal Borough of Greenwich, to which it lends its name.

  • Tower Bridge

    Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London built between 1886 and 1894. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London, resulting in it sometimes being confused with London Bridge, situated some 0.5 mi upstream. Tower Bridge is one of five London bridges now owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. It is the only one of the Trust's bridges not to connect the City of London directly to the Southwark bank, as its northern landfall is in Tower Hamlets.

  • British Museum

    The British Museum, located in the Bloomsbury area of London, United Kingdom, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some 8 million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

  • London Stadium

    London Stadium (originally known as the Olympic Stadium) is a stadium in Stratford, London, England, at Marshgate Lane in the Lower Lea Valley. It was constructed to serve as the home stadium for the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, hosting the track and field events and opening and closing ceremonies. It was subsequently renovated as a multi-purpose stadium, with its primary tenants being West Ham United Football Club and British Athletics. The stadium is 6+1/2 mi from Central London.
