Ok, so the one thing we Brits are famous for is queuing. We’re good at it, and usually like to complain about it... However, if you’ve got a lot to pack into a day out in London town – or if the weather isn’t convincing you to stand outside for a few hours – why not skip the queues?
We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite attractions where you can buy skip-the-line tickets, which could save you good few hours of queuing time.
Skip the line tickets at London attractions
The London Eye
Skip the line to make your London Eye experience a whole lot more enjoyable. With fast-track entry for your standard flight in a shared capsule, you get to skip the majority of the queue. And queues for this very popular London icon often do get very long indeed.
Sea Life London Aquarium
The Sea Life London Aquarium is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of global marine life, which means it’s one of London’s busiest attractions. So if you want to wander past the hordes and head straight in? Pick up tickets to take advantage of a skip-the-line tour.
Charles Darwin was a fellow of the ZSL London Zoo and visited regularly. Here’s your chance to follow in his footsteps by taking in one of the capital’s very finest attractions. We don’t reckon the pioneering evolutionist had to queue, so you shouldn’t have to either.
Madame Tussauds London
The queues at this world-famous attraction often snake their way across half of London (okay, an exaggeration but they do go long), so if any place is worth a skip-the-line ticket, it’s this. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with the stars in no time.
A fish specialist in a glass pavilion overlooking Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market. It's been going since 1999, so it must be doing something right. The menu goes from beer-battered fish and chips, grilled/steamed sardines, mackerel, tuna steak, swordfish and sea bream to Thai fish cakes with sweet chilli sauce, smoked haddock rarebit, moules mariniere and grilled lobster with chips and garlic butter. Seafood not your thing? There's bruschetta (without anchovies), chicken liver parfait, steaks and a veggie dish of the day, too. A couple of cocktails are available, alongside a wine list with an understandable focus on whites.
