Things To Do In London - London Attractions
Being a historically rich, vibrant and culturally diverse European capital city, it’s no surprise that there are a multitude of amazing things to do in London. Of course, we all know the landmark London attractions such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the murky Thames, the Tate Modern and the London Eye, but there’s so much more than that.
Visits at many of the greatest museums and art galleries in the world are just some of the free things to do in London. The Natural History museum, The British museum and the National Gallery, to name but a few, are London attractions that are free to one and all. Hyde Park and The Regent’s Park are great places for taking a picnic and people watching.
Would a trip to the capital be complete without a visit to Buckingham Palace? Or better still, a tour of Her Majesty’s residence. Many tourists would agree that it’s the pinnacle of any London sightseeing trip. If you’re lucky enough, you might just spot the Queen.
Bringing the children along with you? You’ll most likely want to know what kind of things to do in London with kids. The Natural History Museum is a firm favourite, as are the Zoo, the Science museum and the gruesome but thrilling London Dungeon.
For the cultured among us, a visit to the theatre might be near the top of our list of things to do in London. Take in the drama of a world famous musical or West End show. Even if you’re not taking in a show, the West End is one of the nicest places to visit in London, to soak up the atmosphere!
If you visit London you have to sample the cuisine and not many places can compare to the capital when talking about dining out. You can eat good old traditional British dishes, like Fish and Chips or Shepherd’s Pie! Being such a diverse city though, you can find almost any world cuisine here; Chinese, Indian, Italian, Thai and Lebanese to name but a few. From fine dining in Michelin Star restaurants to affordable, satisfying street food, London has it all.
Sporting fans will find plenty of world class events to watch. Football takes centre stage in the UK, and Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the top representatives from the capital. Watch a match at Stamford Bridge, the Emirates or White Hart Lane. Summer places hosts to the annual Wimbledon tennis event, and if you lucky enough to get tickets, it’s one of the best things to do in London.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable shopping experience, then the capital has it all. From all the biggest and best High Street names in Oxford Street to the high end fashion brands of Bond Street, London can go toe-to-toe with any other world capital when it comes to awesome shopping experiences. Harrods, Harvey Nicolls and Fortnum & Mason are but a few of the luxury brand stores in which to set your credit card loose! Gent’s might fancy a stroll down Savile Row and the chance to get fitted for a sharp-looking bespoke suit. And for something a little more unique, independent boutique stores are ten a penny on Carnaby Street in Soho.
London travel itself can be quite exciting. Ride the famous underground and alight at Waterloo, Piccadilly Circus or Paddington. Pay homage to the famous Abbey Road album cover from the Beatles with a trip to Maida Vale station.
