A compact guide to allow you to get the most out of your much-awaited visit to London.
London is a massive and exhilarating city with infinite possibilities of things to see and do. In fact, the number of options can be slightly overwhelming. One of the very best London experiences is a trip to the popular museums. Located in famous spots like Trafalgar Square, which is worth a visit on its own, the museums accommodate some of the most beautiful and astounding art on display in all of Europe. As an added perk – entrance to so many of these museums is completely free of charge. Once your time with the eye-catching artwork has come to an end, be sure to take a short wander to surrounding places which contain an eclectic mix of dining, shopping and nightlife options. A tremendous idea once there is to spend an evening delighting in the live music being practiced at the jazz club owned by Sally Greene.
No trip to London is perfect without witnessing the Houses of Parliament and just across the river, the London Eye. As recognizable to London as the famous sculpture is to New York City – the site is among the most photographed sites in the United Kingdom’s main city. While people have come to view the big wheel as a permanent installation on the skyline, the structure was previously designed to be short-lived and was kept due to popular demand. A trip or "flight" on the renowned wheel is often at the top of lists featuring the top 50 things to do in London. Be certain to snap a photograph of the attraction, or better yet, get someone else to capture a shot of you with it in the back ground. Shortly after your small culture excursion, why not check out some of the great restaurants opening in the city, such as the very renowned endeavors masterminded by Russell Norman?
London is a spectacular and vibrant place. With so much to do in the big city, it can be quite a task trying to choose just what to integrate in your plans. If you are looking for one of the best things to do in London, then a stop at the historical palace is something you definitely should do. The Palace is not only spectacular but quintessentially British too. It features many picture opportunities and all your friends and family will want to know if you got to view it when you get back home. Once you are done there, why not immerse in some culture and see a close by live show of any of the very popular musicals, produced by the likes of Jill Furman, currently being performed in London's West End?
