"Eugh... avoid the shops that..." London Tourist Trap Tip by savageangel

London Tourist Traps: 435 reviews and 348 photos

Eugh... avoid the shops that sell tacky 'London' souvenirs down Oxford Steet, all a rip off. Picadilly Circus can be a bit of a nightmare, but you have to go just to see Eros (pointing the wrong way I might add, hes supposed to be pointing down Shaftesbury Ave towards the heart of theatre land. He was taken down during the war and put back up the wrong way!). Trocaderro and Leicester Sq can also be a bit of a nightmare and Madame Tussauds prices are just cheeky (also you might queue for hours!)

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
