Google's StreetView is a fantastic tool for checking out places all over the world, from the comfort of your armchair! Let's take a tour of 20 top places in London via StreetView (in no particular order) and see what this great city has to offer...
 

1. Tower Bridge

Not to be confused with London Bridge, construction started on Tower Bridge in 1886 and the bridge was opened in 1894. The bridge is supported by 70,000 tonnes of concrete and was constructed by 432 people.

Tower Bridge crosses the river thames near the tower of London and features machinery to open the deck of the bridge to allow ships to pass through to London’s docks.

The bridge deck is freely accessible to vehicles and pedestrians. The high-level open air walkways between the towers gained a reputation as a location for prostitutes and pick pockets and were closed to the public in 1910.

The two bridge towers, high-level walkways and Victorian engine rooms now form part of the Tower Bridge Exhibition which charges a fee for admission.

Major renovation work began in 2008 and was expected to cost £4 million and take 4 years to complete.

 

2. Big Ben & Houses of Parliament

Big Ben is actually a nickname for the largest of the five bells in the 96m tall clock tower near the Palace of Westminster (houses of parliament). Completed in 1859, the tower was originally called "Clock Tower" but was renamed "Elizabeth Tower" in 2012 and is listed as Grade 1 UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Gothic Revival style tower consists of brickwork with sand-coloured Anston limestone. The clocks movement is famous for its reliability. Penny coins are added on the top of the pendulum to adjust the clock. Adding or removing a coin changes the clock's speed by 0.4 seconds per day. In August 2017 major repair and conservation work started at a cost of £61 million.

The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Originally the primary residence of the Kings of England, most of the structures were destroyed in 1512 and in 1834 an even greater fire led to its destruction. It was rebuilt and completed by 1876.

 

3. The London Dungeon

Opened in 1974, the London Dungeon is a tourist attraction that re-creates various gory and macabre events from a 1000 years of London's history.

The London Dungeon features famous scenes/topics like the great fire of London, Jack the Ripper and Sweeney Todd. Actors form parts of the exhibits and will jump out and scare tourists as they navigate the labyrinth of rooms and corridors that make up the dungeon. But mainly it’s good fun and highly recommended!

For 39 years The London Dungeon was based at Tooley Street and in 2013 moved to County Hall, South Bank, to be near with other attractions such as the London Eye.

 

4. The City of London

The City of London or simply, the City, is London’s financial centre, home to the Stock Exchange and the Bank of England. From the 1st Century AD to the middle ages, The City made up most of the area of London, but now the metropolis of London has grown well beyond it’s size. The City has a residential population of around 9,400, but over 300,000 people commute to work there every day.

Historic buildings include the St Paul’s Cathedral, Monument to the Great Fire of London, The Guildhall, the Royal Exchange, Mansion House and churches by Sir Christopher Wren.

Modern skyscrapers include the Leadenhall Building, Heron Tower, Tower 42 and 30 St Mary Axe, known by it’s nickname the Gherkin and the Lloyds building seen in the Streeview on this slide.

 

5. Olympic Park

Located in the east of the city, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was built for the 2012 London Olympics, the first Olympic Games in London since 1948. The Games were widely praised for great organisation and with public volunteers and military receiving praise for their great work and Britain secured 65 medals, well and truely surpassing the 48 medals predicted by UK Sport.

The park features Britain’s largest piece of public art, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, an observation tower. Over 80,000 workers were involved with construction of the Olympic Park, which was later renamed to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

The area of the park covers parts of four London boroughs, namely Stratford, Bow, Leyton, and Hackney Wick.

The Legacy List is a charity that was set up to support the legacy of the Olympic Games. The aim of The Legacy List is to educate and inspire people and future generations through art, education and skill building initiatives by use of the park.

 

6. Buckingham Palace

Located in the City of Westminster, Buckingham Palace is the London home and administrative headquarters of The Queen of the United Kingdom. Originally known as Buckingham House, the central structure was a large town house built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703. The last major additions to the structure of the palace were made in the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1901 Edward VII undertook heavy redecoration work to the palace.

The palace features original 19th century interior designs and features 775 rooms, including 92 offices, 78 bathrooms, 52 principal bedrooms, 19 state rooms and 188 staff rooms.

The palace receives around 50,000 guests by invitation every year. Guests enjoy parties, audiences and banquets. In the year ending March 31st 2017, the palace received visits from 580,000 members of the public and 154,000 visited the gallery.

 

7. Thames Barrier

Construction of the Thames Barrier started in 1974 and became operational in 1982. The barrier prevents the flood plain of Greater London being flooded by exceptionally high tides and storm surges from the North Sea.

The barrier is designed to deal with a very high flood level until 2030, but after this time will continue to provide acceptable protection. When constructed it was expected to be used 2-3 times per year, but now is being used 6-7 times per year.

In 2011 proposals for a new barrier were made as part of the Thames Hub integrated infrastructure vision, further downstream in Essex, that include Hydropower turbines to generate renewable energy and include road and rail tunnels to connect Essex and a new airport.

Spanning a 520 metre stretch of the Thames, the barrier can be raised when needed during high tide and at low tide can be opened to restore the rivers flow into the sea.

The construction of the Thames Barrier was mainly the result of a report following the 1953 North Sea flood that struck the Netherlands, Belgium, England and Scotland. The North Sea flood was one of the most devastating natural disasters to affect the UK and almost 200 people in London were made temporarily homeless. Total damages in the UK were estimated to be £50 million, an equivalent of £1,370 million today.

 

8. O2 Arena

Situated in Greenwich, London, the O2 Area is an indoor multi-purpose arena located in The O2, a large entertainment complex on the site of the original “Millenium Experience”. The arena was built under the former “Millenium Dome”, one of the largest of its type in the world.

There are various ways to travel to the O2, including river bus, tube, bus, driving, by cable car or by plane / Eurostar for international visitors.

The Arena hosts many events for various bands/music genres, dance and award shows and was referred to the North Greenwich Arena when it was used during the 2012 Olympic Games.

In 2017, the O2 Arena enjoyed total ticket sales for concerts and shows of over 1.4million ahead of Madison Square Garden in New York and the Manchester Arena.

The O2 Arena has received various awards including International Venue of the Year and the Billboard Touring Awards for Top Arena.

 

9. Westminster Abbey

Previously called the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, Westminster Abbey dates back to 960 AD but has been rebuilt over the year. Construction of the present church dates back to 1245, under the rule of Henry III. Since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, all coronations of English and British monarchs take place in Westminster Abbey.

The Abbey receives over a million visitors a year. Visitors can see the Poet's Corner, Coronation Chair, The Lady Chapel and the Pyx Chamber.

Over one hundred poets and writers are buried at The Poet’s Corner, with world famous names like William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters and Charles Dickens.

The Coronation Chair has been the centrepiece of coronations for over 700 years and is placed in the centre of the Abbey, in front of the High Altar.

The Lady Chapel is the burial place of fifteen kings and queens and what is thought to be the remains of Edward V and Richard Duke of York. Henry VII spent huge sums on the new Lady Chapel, which was completed in 1516. The main feature of the Chapel is the amazing fan-vaulted roof with carved pendants.

The Pyx Chamber is one of the oldest surviving parts of Westminster Abbey. Part of the East Cloister, the Pyx chamber days back to around 1070. The name “Pyx” comes from the wooden boxes that contained gold and silver and were kept safe until the “Trial of the Pyx”.

 

10. Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum displays a vast range of specimens and various areas of natural history. It is one of three major museums on Exhibition Road in South Kensington. The museum features some 80 million items within five main collections: Botany, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology and zoology.

The foundation of the collection was that of Sir Hans Sloane (1660 - 1753) who allowed his impressive collection to be purchased by the British government for below market value at the time, funded by a lottery.

Most of Sloane’s collection had disappeared by the early nineteenth century. This inability of museum departments to conserve specimens became notorious. Palaeontologist Richard Owen was appointed Superintendent of the natural history departments in 1856 and helped to transform the public's expectations of what museums are for and expanded the museum to allow for much needed extra space.

For many years the central hall contained a 32m long replica of Diplodocus skeleton. A 25m long blue whale skeleton that weighs 4.5 tonnes was made possible in 1934 with the building of the New Whale Hall, now the Mammals gallery.

The Darwin Centre is host to an 8.62m squid and can be viewed by booking a special tour, for a fee. The museum also has a range of galleries containing, fossils, dinosaurs, birds, mammals, minerals, volcanos and earthquakes etc.s

 

11. Tate Modern

Founded in 1897 by Henry Tate, the Tate Modern is part of Tate, an institution comprised of four art museums.

The Tate Modern opened in 2000 and is housed in the former Bankside Power Station, a striking 200m long power station with 99m chimney. The Power Station was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, the same architect as Battersea Power Station. The steel framed, brick clad building is roughly divided into three main areas - the Turbine Hall, boiler house and switch house.

The collections in Tate Modern are made up of international modern and contemporary art dating back to 1900. The huge Turbine Hall is a single space running the whole length of the building and is also to the full height of the building too.

As of June 2016, exhibitions include Start Display, Artist and Society, In The Studio, Materials and Objects, Media Networks, Between Object and Architecture, Performer and Participant and Living Cities.

The Tate Modern also features temporarily exhibitions. Visitors can travel to the Tate Modern via buses, tube, national rail and river services.

 

12. St Paul's Cathedral

Founded in 1675, St Paul’s Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral and the seat of the Bishop of London. St Paul’s sits on Ludgate Hill, the highest point of the City of London.

At 111m high, the present building dates back to the 17th century and was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren and was the tallest building in London from 1710 till 1967.

St Paul’s cathedral is one of London’s most famous landmarks. Services held at the cathedral include the funerals of Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill and Baroness Thatcher.

Inside the cathedral, visitors are immediately struck by the awe-inspiring interior. The main internal space is under the central dome, which extends the full width of the nave and aisles.

St Paul’s cathedral features various artworks, tombs and memorials.

 

13. Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf is a complex of buildings making up one of the UK’s main financial centres, on the Isle of Dogs in London. It contains some of Europe’s tallest buildings, including the second tallest in the UK, One Canada Square.

Canary Wharf also contains many open areas like Canada Square, Westferry Circus and Cabot Square with gardens and fountains. A lot of the areas are named after historical figures or feature a historical theme.

Canary Wharf also offers various leisure activities too including cinemas, two marinas (West India Docks and Poplar Dock) and a local public library.

Transport links to Canary Wharf were of incredible importance. As a result, Canary Wharf has transport links to London City Airport, London Bus routes, Docklands Light Railway, London Underground, National Rail services, London River services and by cycle routes.

 

14. The Globe Theatre

In the London borough of Southwark, “Shakespeare's Globe” or “The Globe Theatre” is a reconstruction of the Elizabethan playhouse associated with William Shakespeare.

The original Globe Theatre was built in 1599 but later destroyed by fire in 1613. It was later rebuilt but demolished 30 years later.

The Globe Theatre is considered an accurate reconstruction, but due to modern safety regulations it houses an audience of only 1400, compared to the originals 3000.

Shakespeare’s Globe was founded by American actor and Director Sam Wanamaker, who moved to the UK from the US due to his communist sympathies. In 2014 the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, a small candle-lit theatre, was opened on the same site.

There are a wide variety of productions on show, see the official Shakespeare’s Globe website for more information.

 

15. Trafalgar Square

Owned by the Queen and located in the City of Westminster, Trafalgar Square is a large open public square. It’s name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars.

In the centre of the square sits Nelson’s Column and is surrounded by fountains and four bronze monumental lions. At the top of Nelson’s Column is a statue of Nelson himself, who was the commander of the British Navy at the Battle of Trafalgar.

In more recent times, the square had become known for community gatherings and political demonstrations and campaigns against climate change. Trafalgar Square has also hosted sporting events and victory parades.

A Christmas ceremony has been held in Trafalgar Square every year since 1947. A Christmas Tree (Norway Spruce) is presented by Oslo (Norway’s captial city) every year as a token of thanks for Britains help during World War II.

In the past public would gather in the square every year for unofficial New Year celebrations. But now to control crowd numbers, this has become a ticketed event.

 

16. Piccadilly Lights

The Piccadilly Lights are the illuminated advertising hoardings that adorn the buildings at Piccadilly Circus, a famous public area and junction of London’s West End.

An instantly recognisable London landmark, the first illuminated advertising signage was introduced in the area in 1908, with a Perrier sign. Incandescent light bulbs were first used, then neon was introduced later.

Owned by Landsec, there was a huge transformation in 2017 when The Lights were re-launched as one huge LED screen. The new LED screen has a resolution 1.4x greater than 4k. The launch of the new advertising space was conducted via Youtube and Facebook and attracted an audience of more than 12 million.

Famous brands to advertise on The Lights include Coca-Cola, TDK, Sanyo, Guiness, Hyundai, McDonalds and Nescafe.

 

17. London Eye

Located on the South Bank of the river Thames, the London Eye is Europe's tallest cantilevered observation wheel and the UK's most popular paid attraction with nearly 4 million visitors a year.

The London Eye is also known as the Millenium Wheel because it was opened in 2000 and was the world's tallest Ferris wheel. This record was then broken in 2006 by the Start of Nanchang in China.

The London Eye features 32 air-conditioned passenger capsules that can hold up to 25 passengers. Passengers can sit or freely walk around while the wheel rotates at 0.6mph.

Until 2013, the London Eye offered the highest public viewing point in London, until the observation deck on the 72nd floor of The Shard was opened to the public.

The Eye has been rebranded multiple times over the years as it changed ownership.

The London Eye has various events for New Year, Valentines and even for babies! For more information see the official site.

 

18. Madam Tussauds

Madame Tussauds is a wax museum and major tourist attraction in London and named after the famous French sculpture Marie Tussaud who founded the museum.

In 1835, Marie was living in Baker Street and founded her was museum. Today some of her sculptures still exist, although many were destroyed by fire and bombings during the second World War.

Today the museum features many famous wax sculptures of celebrities, including the Royal family, politicians, singers and actors and fictional characters.

Madame Tussauds has expanded by opening up other museums in other cities in the world.

 

19. The Shard

The Shard is the tallest building in the UK and one of the tallest in Europe at 309.7m high. The glass building is pyramid shaped and has 72 habitable floors with a viewing gallery and observation deck at the top.

Despite objections to the proposed development plans, the design of The Shard was found to be of the highest quality and the building was given the go ahead by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister at the time, John Prescott.

The Shard was designed to resemble a glass spire merging from the River Thames and is mixed using including, residential, hotel, offices and fashion.

The Shangri-La Hotel offers rooms and suites, restaurants and bars and offers state of the art events services for businesses, diplomatic and social gatherings.

A range of apartments are on offer on floors 53-65, although the media have reported slow sales of the super-expensive living spaces.

 

20. Borough Market

Borough Market is one of the oldest and largest food markets in London, based in Southwark Street. As a marketplace, the site dates back to the 12th century and the present buildings were built in the 1850’s.

Just south of Southwark Cathedral, on the southern end of London Bridge. The retail market (public) operates on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 5pm. On Fridays the market is in operation from 10am to 6pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm. The wholesale market is open on all mornings from 2am to 8am.

Borough Market was purely wholesale in the past, but in its present day form it mainly sells specialist foods to the public. The market stalls are represented by traders from all parts of the UK, and the market offers traditional European foods also.

Borough Market and surrounding areas have also features in the films "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", "Harry Potter", "Bridget Jones’s Diary" and "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus".

The Web Development bit...

Well, this is a web design / development website so it would be a shame not to share how we built this tour!

We used Street View containers to show Street View in our page for each location. Here is an example of a basic Street View container for Tower Bridge:

// StreetView - first slide Tower Bridge
panorama = new google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(
    document.getElementById('street-view'),
    {
      position: {lat: 51.5052461, lng: -0.0738339},
      pov: {heading: 289.35, pitch: 15},
      zoom: 1
    }
);

Then for the location maps we used Google's Javascript Maps API and added a custom marker:

// Default Map - first slide location Tower Bridge
var center = {lat: 51.505410, lng: -0.075410};
var image = new google.maps.MarkerImage("/path-to-image/marker.png", null, null, null, new google.maps.Size(43,43));
map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {
    center: center,
    zoom: 15,
    streetViewControl: false,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
    gestureHandling: 'cooperative'
});

Adding Locations into Slick Slider

To show the various locations in sliding panels, we used Slick carousel by Ken Wheeler.

The basic structure of our sliders HTML is the following. Of course, we have twenty slides, instead of one like below:

<div class="london-slick">
        <div class="place-slide">
           <div class="street-view">
               <div id="street-view"></div>
           </div>
            <div class="txt">
               <div class="buttons">
               <button type="button" class="btn slick-prev">Prev</button>   <button type="button" class="btn slick-next">Next</button>
               </div>
               <h2>Place Heading</h2>
               <p>Place Text</p>
            </div>
            <div class="map">
                <div id="map">
               </div>
            </div>
        </div>
</div>

Then we have the following javascript to make slick work:

var $slick = $('.london-slick');

$(document).ready(function(){
    $slick.slick({
        infinite: true,
        slidesToShow: 1,
        slidesToScroll: 1,
        speed: 200,
        draggable: false,
        adaptiveHeight: true,
        arrows: true,
        prevArrow: $('.slick-prev'),
        nextArrow: $('.slick-next')
    });
});

Getting Google Maps and Street View Coordinates, Zoom and Pitch

On Google Maps we got out Lat Lang values from the url when we had the map in the correct position. So when viewing Tower Bridge in Google Maps, we had the following url:

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Tower+Bridge/@51.5054564,-0.0775505,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x487603438b65db49:0x9e78421a085a6f2d!8m2!3d51.5054564!4d-0.0753565

Note the lat and lang here: @51.5054564,-0.0775505 and the zoom value: 17z

For the Street View containers, note we might have the following url in our browser:

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.5053148,-0.0741279,3a,75y,292.68h,104.62t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snk2mpD-IpHRm-W8LhwDBoQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Note the lat and lang here: @51.5053148,-0.0741279 and the pitch value: 68h

We also tweaked the zoom on Street View as required.

Loading Maps and Street View into Slick

We didn't want to load all the Street Views containers and API maps along with the initial page load because this would potentially slow things down a lot. So we added a function called "updateSlide" to load Street view and the map when the user clicks Prev or Next. This function is called using Slicks afterChange method and we simply added an if statement to add the correct coordinates, zoom and pitch for Street View and the API map:

updateSlide = function(slideNum, _lat, _lng, heading, pitch, zoom, m_lat, m_lng, m_zoom) {
    var pos = new google.maps.LatLng(_lat,_lng);
    panorama.setPosition(pos);
    panorama.setPov({                   
        heading: heading,
        pitch: pitch,
        zoom: zoom
    });

    var center = new google.maps.LatLng(m_lat, m_lng);
    map.panTo(center);
    map.setZoom(m_zoom);
    marker.setPosition(center);

    $('.slick-current').find('.street-view').append($('#street-view'));
    $('.slick-current').find('.map').append($('#map'));
    setTimeout(function(){
        $('.place-slide').removeClass('hide-street');
    }, 500);

};


$slick.on('afterChange', function(event, slick, currentSlide, nextSlide){
    $('.place-slide').addClass('hide-street');

    var slideNum = currentSlide+1,
        _lat,
        _lng,
        heading,
        pitch,
        zoom;
