In London, all visitors are really spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see and do! Whether you want to take a tour by one of the big red buses, or hop in a black cab and take a trip to the West End and see an award-winning show. London is a colourful, cultured and classical city that has something for everyone.
But where to start? If you’re looking for a few ideas to pencil into your itinerary, then read on! But remember, if you’re planning on travelling consider travel insurance with Safe Trip by UHC – just in case!
Hop on the London Eye
Fancy seeing London at a dizzying 135 metres above the ground? Hop into one of the futuristic pods that move at a graceful 0.6mph and you can enjoy the stunning views of the London skyline in perfect elegance. Looking out over the Thames and spot the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben in all it’s glory. Or spot Buckingham Palace and give the Queen a wave!
If you’re thinking of making the London Eye a really special occasion, then did you know you can book a range of options. How about a romantic champagne trip for the two of you? Or consider a two trip ticket – so you can see the city in the early morning sun and again as the sun sets over this wonderful and magical city.
The Tower of London
Step into London’s glorious and gory past with a trip to the Tower of London. The tower itself is over 900 years old and has played a massive part in the history of the city, the country itself and Royals past and present, many of whom spent their last days within its walls.
If that kind of history doesn’t tempt you, then go and have a look at the priceless collections of diamonds, jewellery and crowns. Some which are still used today!
Get yourself a ticket to the Globe
No, I don’t mean a ticket around the world either! The Globe is a world famous theatre you’ll find on the Southbank, where you can see a true replication of an Elizabethan/ Shakespearean play. The original Globe theatre was destroyed by fire in 1613, but this replica is a perfect representation of how it would have been back in Shakespeare’s day. Including the standing room only! You don’t pay for a seat at this theatre but a chance to see a whole play on your feet like they did in the old days. For only £5 it’s a great afternoon treat – unless you’re not very tall of course!
Take a trip to Primrose Hill
If you fancy a break from the hubbub of the city, then take a trip to Primrose Hill. Here you can enjoy an Instagram worthy view of the city skyline. It’s surrounded by excellent cafes and bars too to you can really make an afternoon or an evening of it.
