Famous department stores to shop (or window shop) at include Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, Selfridges, and Liberty. You could spend hours gazing at designer shops on Bond Street, Regent Street, Oxford Street or even Primark!

Visit the Tower Bridge; one of the UK’s architectural marvels symbolizing the progress of history. Pedestrians and cars are free to walk across the base of the bridge and admire the structure from up close. You can also take a tour (£12) inside the bridge, learn about its history, and walk across the glass floor walkways inside.



TIP: Use your Merchantrade Money card to pay at all attractions in London, as VISA is accepted everywhere and have it deducted in your GBP wallet.




There are also museums which you can visit for free! Such as:

  • The British Museum
  • National History Museum
  • National Portrait Museum
  • National Gallery
  • Tate Modern


Getting around in London can be rather hectic with the crowds everywhere, but the tube as well as Uber is pretty reliable. If you really need to, you could catch a cab, but the fare is usually pretty pricy.  You can tap and pay when using the tube or the cabs using your Merchantrade Money card, and you can link your card as a payment method in your Uber account, letting it automatically deduct the fare from your GBP wallet!
