When it comes to planning travel at the start of a new year, we tend to tick off a lot of places that we’re dying to see and do the standard touristy things that go with them. And isn’t it great! What could be better than investing time in doing something we love, with people that we love? If you’re planning on seeing London anytime soon, you’ve probably already got a rough itinerary in mind. But if you haven’t, or you’re only just now thinking of visiting, these activity ideas could help you plan.
See The Sights
Whether you’re going to London for the first time, or you’ve been before but didn’t get around to it, you’re going to want to schedule in a bit of sightseeing. There is just so much to see in London, so you’re also going to want to make sure that you have plenty of time to get it all done. Head to the British classics, like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye and you’ll not be disappointed.
Eat And Eat And Eat
If you’re a big fan of food, or you like to try new cuisines, you’re going to be in your element in London. Not only do you have some incredible restaurants to choose from, but you could also think about doing a foodie tour. That way, you’ll get to experience the best the city has to offer and make sure that you don’t miss out on anything good.
Catch A Matinee
The West End in London is incredible. Not only it is a beautiful area of the city, but it, of course, has some of the best theatrical shows the world has to offer. If you’re in London and have enough time to do it, make sure you see a matinee. You can wander leisurely in the morning, enjoy a long lazy lunch and then head to the theater to see the show. There is always an incredible line up available; the only difficult part will be deciding which one to see!
Just like your days, you’re also going to want to fill your evenings with incredible experiences. Of course, you’re going to want to book in and having dinner, but you might also want to do something other than go to a bar afterward and head back to your hotel. As well as the shows and museums, there are also alternative evening options for you to choose from, like the Jack the Ripper Tours. Especially if it’s culture and heritage (sprinkled with a little excitement) that you’re looking for.
And of course, when you have the likes of Oxford Street, Selfridges, and Harrods on your doorstep, you’re probably going to want to get some shopping in too. Regardless of who you’re traveling with, there will be a shop, a street or a district for everyone. The only thing you’ll want to prepare for is a comfortable walk and maybe even a defined route so you can get everything done too.
