London is my home town and if you want to learn all about the groovy hidden spots (that really aren’t that hidden) then Google has the answers but if you’re new to London and just want to hit up some great places then here are 5 that I personally love!
The London Aquarium
Right by the River Thames is the London Aquarium bursting full of exotic fish, plants,reptiles and more. Perfect for taking the kids but also anyone who has a keen for photography – there are some great snaps waiting to be taken. Its not the cheapest trip out in London but there are some great vouchers and codes out there again Google is your friend!
The London Eye
If you are new to London then a trip on The London Eye is the perfect way to view the entire city. Again it’s not the cheapest of attractions but the views are well worth it. Even as a Londoner I still find it breathtaking and would happily take another trip on the eye.
If you are more of a museum lover or need somewhere for a rainy day then The Natural History Museum is the place for you. I often visit when I’m just at a loose end but there are plenty of exhibitions going on all the time as well as the permanent collection – check out The Darwin Center if you want to see what goes on behind the scenes.
A little out of central London is the Harry Potter Studio Tour and trust me this is not just for us Potter nerds. If you have any interest in the film industry then this is a perfect day out. Full of fun facts you can live out your dreams of going to Hogwarts-not just for kids adults love this as well!
Again a little outside of London but this historic palace is an amazing sight seeing visit, perfect throughout the year the castle adapts with different events occurring throughout the year but again is a great place to visit even when there isn’t something extra exciting on – and don’t forget to get a cloak!
What are your favourite places to visit in London?
