Things to see and do in London

Planning a visit to London? You are in for a treat! Visitors to London are completely spoilt for choice when it comes to planning great days (and nights) out, and there is something for everyone. From fine art and the coolest shops to the most amazing restaurants and iconic landmarks, you will not be disappointed.

If you are looking for some of the most far-reaching views of London, then consider a spin on the London Eye. You can enjoy views from up to 135 metres above the ground. The Shard is also a stellar choice for gazing across the capital and The View from the Shard has floor-to-ceiling windows that boast the amazing views. If you are looking to gaze upon the stunning vistas of London, then head to Primrose Hill where you can play ‘spot the landmark’ without having to worry about vertigo.

Animals in London?! You may be surprised to learn that there are ample opportunities to spot our four-legged friends throughout the city. From deer spotting in Richmond Park to hanging out with the pelicans at St James’s Park, you can walk, talk and hang out with the animals.

London is a mecca for history buffs, and you cannot leave London without paying a visit to The Globe theatre on London’s South Bank. There is actually a wooden reconstruction of the great Bard’s original playhouse, too! The Natural History Museum is also a ‘must see’; here you can marvel at the exhibitions that celebrate all things pre-historic. If history is your thing, but you are looking for something a little bit more recent, then pay a visit to The Tower of London where you can marvel at the Crown Jewels and over 1000 years of history. Other wonderful places to visit include the British Museum and the National Gallery.

Love shopping? Who doesn’t?! In addition to some of the greatest high street outlets in the world, London is also home to the some of most on-trend boutiques and best vintage clothing shops.

So, now that you’ve found your perfect outfit, you then need an opportunity to showcase it in London. From an evening out at the West End to a quirky night out in East London, there are so many things to do in the UK’s capital.

If you are after a fab soiree in the city of London, why not have a night out at one of London’s many casinos? The Grosvenor is an ideal place to visit if you are after a delicious meal (check out the steak!), a few cheeky cocktails and a little turn on the tables. Even professional poker players visited the capital of the United Kingdom last year. If you are looking for some great dinner options, why not check out some of the fantastic Michelin-star restaurants that are on offer?

Whether you are planning a visit with your significant other or with friends, or even if you’re riding solo, you can find a wealth of exciting things to see and do in London. From an exciting bar and club scene to cultural offerings and historic ventures, you won’t be short of things to do whatsoever. By the end of your trip, you won’t be ready to say ‘Cheerio’ to Blighty for very long as you will be too busy planning your return trip.
