Top 10 most visited attractions ‘in London’

Laura Citron, CEO of London & Partners, which runs VisitLondon, said: “I am delighted that this data shows London’s world-famous attractions continuing to entice and captivate visitors from all over the world. London’s attractions are so important to our global appeal, with London recently being named World’s Best Destination 2019 in the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice awards. And we have an exciting year ahead, with major events such as the Cricket World Cup, city-wide projects like the magical Illuminated River display, Van Gogh at Tate Britain and Mary Poppins on stage – to name just a few!”

The most visited attraction in the UK was Tate Modern with 5,868,562 visits. The exhibition Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame Tragedy. continues to draw in the crowds.

Bernard Donoghue, Director of ALVA, said: “2018 was a great year for London’s attractions. Visitors from home and abroad flocked to London’s world class cultural assets, in fact ALVA’s London members welcomed the equivalent of the population of the UK. Tourism is such a major part of the London economy, and a huge employer, and we know that overseas visitors say that our attractions are their number 1 reason to visit the UK. This year we’re working with the Mayor and London & Partners to promote London to Londoners and to remind all of us what amazing attractions we have across London, in every borough.”
