Top 5 things to do in London – by Meron and Yusuke
If you are reading this blog, it is because you are looking for an amazing place in London. So don’t waste your time looking elsewhere, you are in the right place. Let’s have a look at our top 5 list!
One of the things you have to see if you are in London is Camden Market, which is in the north part of London. There, you will see typical shops and a huge diversity of people. Camden has an alternative atmosphere.
On a sunny or rainy day, if you are looking for a cultural activity, then the British Museum deserves a stop. Easily accessible, it is known for its old multicultural collections and it also has an amazing architecture with a surprising roof design.
If you want to have an unforgettable view of London and be captured by the structure of the town, go to the Sky garden. It is in the middle of the business district, where old and modern buildings stand together, The view is spectacular and free! But if you are interested in living this experience, do not forget to book the ticket in advance!
4.King’s Cross, St-Pancras
In the heart of the sophisticated London underground and train network, King’s Cross is famous for the Platform 9 ¾ from the magical World created by J.K Rowling. So come and don’t miss your journey to Hogwarts.
Just imagine, on Sunday traipsing around the centre of London, being hungry and looking for a typical dining place. Now how would you feel if I tell you that there is a perfect place with a lot of restaurant and shops under the same roof? I am of course talking about the Covent Garden, which is also animated by a variety of artists. It is near Piccadilly Circus, which is also surrounded by theatres, pubs and bars.
So have no doubts, it’s high time you booked your flight to London!
Top 5 of my best places in London – by Clement and Emmanuele
Surprisingly, your friend has booked you a trip to London for you but you’re afraid to get lost in the wild Jungle of London. Don’t worry, I have a survival kit for you! Here’s my pick of some of the best things to do in London.
1° Thames Cruise
Big Ben, Tower of London, Tower Bridge… London has plenty of beautiful monuments. The only problem is they are spread all around the city. So, to make sure you don’t miss any of them, book your ticket for the Thames Cruise. You could see each one of them in around an hour and spend time exploring the rest of the city.
2° Camden Lock
Probably the most alternative place that you can find in London, this area is definitely a must-do! Stroll around Camden Market and the Stables to see the shop fronts of the late horseboxes, the Cyberdog store and grab some variety food which comes from different countries all over the world.
Even if you’re not a big fan of them, seeing a musical in London deserves a spot on your bucket list. Some of the most famous musicals were created in London. Don’t panic, you’ll find a musical to suit your taste! If you love animals, you can see the Felines singing in Cats or The Lion King. But if you prefer classic literature, you will also find remakes of Les Misérables or The Phantom of the Opera.
4° Eating Indian food in Brick Lane
Any excuse to eat Indian food in Brick Lane is a good one. If you are a food lover or just if you are broke, Brick Lane is the place to be. Best of all, everything you need is a stone’s throw away.
5° Ten Bells Pub
How would you feel if you were on the same track as Jack the Ripper? If you want to know, come to this very old pub, order whatever you want and then you will see…
Now you hold the cards in your hand, Now it’s your turn!
Great tips guys! Thanks Meron, Yusuke, Clement and Emmanuele.
