How To Get The Most Out Of Your Trip To London

Collaborative post

As you may know I am from South East London, and central London is a short train journey away from me; but it’s only recently I have spent the time really exploring London and checking out some really cool places.

London is rightly regarded as one of the world’s best destinations. You can do anything and everything here, usually at any time of the day, too! But there is a problem when it comes to visiting the UK capital. It’s huge, there’s so much to do, and the sheer pace of the city can make it feel intimidating. That’s where this post can help. Below, is a quick run through of some of the best ways to get the most out of your trip. All you’ll need to do is hope for good weather!

Look Up Obscure Attractions

Everyone knows the big attractions in London. There’s Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and so on. While you should stop by these attractions, don’t make them the bulk of your trip. For starters, they’re all relatively close to each other, so they won’t take you long to see. More than that though, is that London offers plenty of cracking, slightly obscure attractions that you might find much more interesting! If you have a particular passion (say, music or literature), then build your trip around visiting the places of interest related to that interest.

Hit the Market

There’s much to love about London, but perhaps one of the best things is the quality of the goods that are available. If you don’t believe us, then check out one of the many markets where you can buy clothes, food, crafts, rare used items, and more. It’s always fun to pick up a souvenir or get a taste of London, but there’s another benefit to strolling the markets, especially those based in Zone 2: you get to see local life up close. It’s the real London!

My favourite has got to be Camden market because it’s always buzzing and I always find the most unique items that I wouldn’t find anywhere else and it’s awesome!

Live Well

The best of the best is available in London, so while you’re there, make sure you’re sampling some of the high life. If you love craft beer, then check out one (or several) of the many micro- and nano-breweries that dot the city. There are plenty of posh restaurants in London, too, where you can sample some of the world’s best dishes in luxury surroundings. Not saying that you should build your entire trip around eating and drinking, but…OK, maybe that should be said. London is a destination for the taste buds – don’t miss out!

What’s Going On?

It’s frantic living in London – there’s so much stuff to do! On any night of the week, you’ll find some of the world’s best musicals, concerts, and other events taking place. If you’re visiting, check out what’s going on before you arrive, as events do, of course, sell out. To visit the capital is a chance to see some of the world’s greatest examples of art and culture!

Park Life

You’ll want to do a lot of activities when you’re in London, but it’s also worth taking the time to do nothing at all, especially if it’s sunny. Sit in one of the many parks, or on the South Bank, and just watch the world go by. Nice! A lot of the parks make a perfect photo if you’re a keen photographer!
