It is a metropolis bursting at the seams with all kinds of exciting, fun things to do! We’ve taken a look a what there is to do in London and whittled it down to a handful of choices…
#1 The London Eye
Rotating at an elegant speed of 0.6mph, the London Eye offers a fabulous vista of the capital. Look out over the waters of the River Thames, the Houses of Parliament and beyond!
#2 Dine in the Shard
If you have a head for heights and want an even more panoramic bird’s eye view of the city, enjoy the dizzying heights of the Shard. At 244 metres above ground level, it is a view unlike any other. Fast becoming a landmark of modern London, the Shard is well-worth a visit.
#3 Richmond Park
When the hub-bub of the city and bustling pavements becomes too much, pop on over to Richmond Park. A beautiful ancient woodland, you may spot the deer in the early morning mist. A vast expanse, hire a bike to explore at your leisure.
#4 Hampton Court Palace
As the seat of the English monarchy, London has many palaces and grand houses to visit. Hampton Court Palace is among the best with the Stuarts and Georgians leaving their mark on the palace. Stand in the rooms where history was made or enjoy the frighteningly good ghost walk too.
#5 The Tower of London
If you love anything that sparkles – and we do – then a visit to admire the stunning Crown Jewels at the Tower of London is an essential visit. As well as admiring the lustre on the diamonds, enjoy the lively Beefeater led tours too.
#6 Tower Bridge
Not people know that the city’s most favourite bridge now has a glass viewing platform that makes looking at the road and river 42 metres below a little hair-raising. The six glass panels weigh 500kg each and are 11 metres in length and as well as the vista beneath your feet, you can enjoy the view up and down the river too.
#7 Imperial War Museum
The legacy and scars of the First World War are a powerful story and reminder of the damage wars and conflicts bring. With moving accounts and personal artefacts from the war, you will find time spent at the Imperial War Museum both moving and memorable.
#8 Madame Tussauds
To lightening the mood, why not admire the latest additions to the waxworks at Madame Tussauds? With royalty rubbing shoulders with film stars and celebrities, the lifelike models are perfect for anyone who loves a selfie with the rich and famous.
#9 Take in a show on Broadway
Broadway is theatreland and with hit shows on all of the time, you will be spoilt for choice. Even if you don’t take in a show, walk down the hallowed pavements because you could spot a famous actor or two. Find out what’s on and book a great deal!
#10 St Paul’s Cathedral
An iconic building, Sir Christopher Wren’s architectural masterpiece must be seen to be truly appreciated. But it hides a whispering gallery. The indoor balcony at the base of the dome is perfectly placed to take advantage of the aural phenomenon created by the building’s interior shape. You whisper, and your friend stood 100 feet away will hear loud and clear…
