10 things to do in London

London. The city every person wishes to visit atleast once in their life.From beautiful historical attractions to their culture, their language – British English ❤️ Their food, the shopping, everything has my heart.

I was in London this summer and here’s what all I explored!

1. Hyde Park

Hyde Park is possibly the most famous park in London, and it is one of the largest. The park’s famous Speaker’s Corner is still occupied by debates, protests, and performance artists every week. Here you can go paddle-boating, see a number of swans, and take in a breath of fresh air in the center of the city and also you could spot the London eye from here.

2. London Eye

A trip to London isn’t complete without a visit to the iconic London Eye. Originally constructed to celebrate the millennium, the Eye is a giant ferris wheel offering gorgeous views across the city. At night, the wheel is lit up in seasonal colors and is the centerpiece of

London’s annual New Year’s fireworks display.

You can share one of the spacious pods with other keen visitors, or splurge on a private pod for you and someone special. Located on top of river Thames, the view is breathtaking. You can splurge on a private pod if you are wanting to propose to your someone special 😉 I’m sure it will be the best moment ever!

3. Baker Street/Madame Tussauds

With 14 interactive areas, Madame Tussauds London combines glitz, glamour and incredible history with 300 plus stunning wax figures

Enjoy an audience with Her Majesty The Queen and Will and Kate before stepping on stage with music icons including Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, JLO Then, after a behind-the-scenes look at how our sculptors work, ride in a taxi and relive the rich history of London.

4. Oxford Street

Oxford Street is not only London’s top spot for shopping but is Europe’s busiest shopping street. It has 300 shops and receives over 500,000 visitors every day. Shop till you drop in designer stores and internationally-famous department stores like Debenhams and House of Fraser. There are a lot of brands to shop from which include Primark Ted Baker Zara and a lot more .

5. Buckingham Palace

trip to London is incomplete without walking through Green Park to get to Buckingham Palace. The palace has been home to the British Royal Family since 1837. It features 775 rooms and the largest private garden in London.

Some of the palace is open to visitors so you can see a little piece of the royal lifestyle. From outside, watch the world-famous Changing of the Guard. This I guess happens every week and is a great opportunity to witness a historic tradition and the utmost discipline of the Royal Guard – who are all wearing the iconic London bearskin.

6. Tower bridge

There are a number of companies in London offering cruises across the Thames. Cruises run as regularly as every 30 minutes from several key locations. The cruises pass several key sightseeing locations, including Tower Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye.

Some cruises run at night so you can see the sights all lit up, whilst others are served with a meal or afternoon tea. This is a lovely and unique way to view the city, traveling along the historic Thames.
