The Best Things To Do In London, Part Two

  1. Brick Lane – The area describes itself as “a microcosm of London’s shifting ethnic patterns” and is the hub of London’s Bangladeshi community. Find unique shops and galleries as well as the market that runs every Sunday which hosts eclectic second hand stalls as well as street performers and music.

  2. The Natural History Museum – Just a short walk from South Kensington tube station is one of London’s most iconic buildings which is home to incredible exhibitions, interactive displays and animal structures. Find life size dinosaur models along with the world famous blue whale.

  3. The Science Museum – South Kensington is also where you will find London’s Science Museum. Packed with interactive and exciting exhibitions this is a mesmerising world that is suitable for all age groups.

  4. Trafalgar Square – Situated in the heart of London, Trafalgar Square is home to Nelson’s Column and is a must see if you are spending the day exploring the sites. The square also showcases some impressive and sometimes controversial sculptures and statues as well as the odd pigeon!

  5. See a musical – Hit the west end and find a huge variety of musicals, some popular choices are Wicked, Les Miserables, The Lion King and much, much more. Whether you want to be moved to tears or want to get up and boogie there is something for everyone!

  6. Enjoy a world class cocktail – London’s clubs and bars offer a delicious mix of cocktails. Try well loved cocktails whilst watching fantastic flaring skills and showmanship in Covent Garden’s Roadhouse or try something completely different and head to Leicester Square’s Ice Bar- it’s so cool, its frozen!

  7. Buckingham Palace – Give a royal wave to The Queen and Prince Philip and stop and take a look at the home to British Monarchy. You will also see the ever popular London Guards as well as being able to take a peek in 19 different State Rooms.

  8. Camden Market – An alternative approach to market shopping, Camden Market is a spider’s web of stalls hidden down alleys and passage ways as well as diverse food stands. There is no atmosphere like the bustling market of Camden so make sure you pay a visit.

  9. London Zoo – This Victorian Zoo is home to big cats, bugs, monkeys, reptiles, sea life, birds and Komodo Dragons! If you are a fan of our four legged friends then The London Zoo is a must see for any animal lover.

  10. Catch a gig – London is home to some of the world's most successful bands and performers. See the biggest names in the industry at iconic music arenas such as the O2 Arena in Greenwich or find something new at Camden’s music venue, KOKO.
