London travel guide

17.6.17


Forth time in London, and as excited as the very first time. For me London is one of those places you never get tired of visiting, one of those places that have some kind of magic that makes you want to come back. Once of those places that no matter how many times you visit, it would always surprise you with something new.

Although I have been in London more than once, this time was the first time I was going on my own. Thus, I wanted to make the most out of my visit. That's why a few weeks before the trip, I started studying all the possibilities for moving around and going sightseeing. 

We were in London for a week, and let me say, 7 days are not enough in such a diverse and enormous city, but thanks to a few tips from our local friends, we definitely gave it a good shot!

Lets begin with the London guide tour! Enjoy!

LONDON’S MUST-SEE SIGHTS AND ATTRACTIONS

So much to do! And because we were only around for a few days the destinations needed to be done wisely! Without fail you have to go to:

1. WESTMINSTER ABBEY

Get up as early as possible for your first day! For sure you want to go see the Big Ben, so just take the Jubilee, District or Circle lines and step off the Westminster Station. Enjoy the Big Ben, take a few pictures and right to the Westminster abbey! Definitely totally worth visiting!

2. TOWER OF LONDON

Is there a better way to explore the city than taking a cruise around the River Thames? Cruises depart every 30 minutes at the following piers: Westminster, London Eye, Tower of London and Greenwich. Take the cruise enjoy the view and get to the Tower of London, is absolutely breathtaking.

3. Oxford circus shopping

Oxford street, the major, endless road in the city of Westminster. Here you can find by far the best shopping in London. I would say it is like dying and going to heaven.

4. The british museum

Unfortunately we could not spend that much time here wish so badly that we would have been able to spend more. The museum is huge and it gives you the opportunity to dig into human history, art and culture! I could have spent weeks there. However, the major drawback was the queue, it was insane, so I would recommend going there as early as possible.

5. SOHO

In my opinion, a total fashionable district. Soho had a reputation as a base for the sex industry in addition to its night life. It has a genuine 24-hour nightlife. But it is more than sex shops and nightlife, there are some excellent old shops and restaurants totally worth visiting. 

6. Theaters and cinemas

We went one to the cinema while we were in London, and unfortunately we did not have time for a theater show, although it was in our plans. So after a long tiring day of tourism, if you feel like cozy down on a velvet bed, there is not best way of doing it than going to the cinema!

7. London eye

Obviously, one of the most famous landmarks in London had to be in this guide. Definitely, if you go to London, you cannot miss a ride on this amazing Ferris wheel.

8. LONDON bridge experience - london tombs

Make your way past walls dripping in blood, squeeze through confined spaces and scream with terror through 2000 years of history

I was not sure what to expect at first, but I totally loved it. The actors were both convincing and very informative. Undoubtedly, one of my favorites places now in London.


9. food
Everyone loves food, and when visiting a foreign country, trying new dishes is a must! In our case our first choice was, obviously, trying fish and chips in a super fancy restaurant in Oxford Street: The Mayfair Chippy- F&C.

I would also like to remark Dinner, which had one of the most amazing buggers I have ever tried (excluding american buggers) and super tasty milkshakes.

Pret A Manger was also yummy, fresh baguette sandwiches at great prices and pretty nice coffees.
