From Copenhagen we flew to London for a few more days of sight-seeing. We purchased a Big Bus hop-on/hop-off two-day pass to have a quick overview. We also used the Underground (subway) to visit points of interest. For the subway, buy a zone 1 (where most tourist attractions are) day-pass with unlimited number of rides during the day.

British Museum. Lots of biblical relics. You can spend days there. Free admission.
