What to see in London in six days
If you are going to visit London in six days, the truth is that you will have time to enter many of the city’s attractions, such as the Tower of London, St Paul’s, go up the London Eye, take a cruise on the Thames …
One option would be to use the tourist bus for the first day or the first two days, since it is a good way to start the trip and get around the city a bit without using public transport, and it is good to know that in addition to the bus tourist offer a cruise on the Thames that I would recommend a thousand times. More information: Tourist Bus with free cruise .
And another option that you should consider if you are thinking of entering several of the attractions, such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, HMS Belfast, Transport Museum… take a look at the London Pass card , since it allows you to enter more than 55 attractions for free.

On the sixth day you can visit a market, a museum, a park like Hyde Park or Regent’s Park, or the South Kensington and Knightsbridge area for example… Here are some ideas:
