Attractions in London open early

Hi All,

I arrive into London around 7am and looking for something that will be open early. I wanted to do London zoo but it doesnt open until 10am...Was thinking of Madame Tusauds but does this get really busy quickly? We've done the London eye before and been to see Buckingham Palace etc so not too fussed about going to see things, I'd prefer to go and do an attraction.

Any help for attractions open before 9am would be great.

Regent's Park will be open from 5am every day, go for a wander, admire the Nash Terraces and the gardens as you take a leisurely stroll across to the zoo...

Not sure if you'd want to see a movie at 7am, but sometimes they do have red carpet premiers that early.

Also, Smithfield Market would be interesting. Here's some info from their website:

The markets at Smithfield are open MONDAY to FRIDAY from 3am but are closed on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.

Although some selling takes place until mid-morning, to see the market at its best and find the full range of stalls open, visitors and buyers should arrive by 7am.

•Sir Horace Jones, the City Architect, was given the challenge of designing the new building in the 1860s. He carried out the task so well that he later went on to design both Billingsgate and Leadenhall markets, but his pièce de résistance was Tower Bridge.

You could catch a Thames Clipper boat. These are high speed catamarans aimed mainly at commuters.

They allow you to pay using an Oyster Card and go quite quick from Central London to Greenwich via many stops of interest like the Tate and Tower Bridge.
