And no matter what season it is, London looks amazing 24 hours a day. When the sun finally goes down, the nightlife begins. There are so many things to do in London that you might just fall short of time which is why we have compiled together a list of things that you must definitely do on your next visit.
Hop on the London eye
This is the monstrous ferris wheel right on the banks of the River Thames. Inaugurated in December 1999, the London eye attracts 3.5 million visitors every year. The entire ride takes about half an hour to complete and though it can definitely be a little scary to be on top, the view of the entire city from here is envious. We would recommend not booking a ticket in advance, see the weather conditions and then decide. Going during the day or night is completely your call, the city looks equally amazing.
Rub shoulders with movie stars at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
This world famous museum is definitely one of a kind. Located right in the heart of the city, Madame Tussauds has life size wax figures of famous personalities from different lines of work. From the British royals to Kim Kardashian and even One Direction, you will find everyone posing here. It’s a huge museum and there is going to be a lot of walking so make sure you have got your comfortable shoes on.
Take a stroll around the Oxford street
From Marble Arch to Oxford Circus, lies the renowned Oxford Street. Also known as the fashion centre of London, Oxford Street has the all fashion brands you could ever dream of. From the most high end-brands to the most affordable ones, there is something for everybody and even if you are just out for window shopping, this place is a delight to the eyes.
Soak in the sun at Hyde Park
The biggest park in London, Hyde Park has witnessed it all. It’s a favorite picnic spot and all the big music festivals and concerts happen right here. There are also many remarkable monuments in the park that you should definitely pay a visit including Serpentine Lake, Speakers’ Corner and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain. But the famous park was not always the same. During the World War II it was used as a potato field but now that all that is behind us, Hyde Park remains a symbol of hope.
