What can i do in london?Watch this thread
you could have a picnic in several parks and visit some fairs?
you could visit westfield too, there's one in east and west london
Trip to the shops
Tower of London
Hotel afternoon tea
thrift stores + record shops
picnic in park (I recommend greenwich park and hyde park)
shopping malls like westfield and canary wharf
art galleries and museums
shopping places like oxford street (you can visit all those big flagship stores too)
leicester square which has like chinatown, street performances and shops
find all the street art places
find all the film location places
outdoor cinemas (canary wharf shows some films for free outside during the summer)
What I've essentially been doing is just doing like a whistle stop tour of one area of london with my friends, so I did an east london one of the docklands area last week and next week i'm doing a more central one. It was a lot of fun so I recommenddd. I probably only spent like £8 in total tbh, not including transport (I just used my zip for that so it wasn't so bad).
just kidding of course, but like another user said, its a waste of money if you dont have a lot of it.
that doesnt mean theres nothing at all though. if its your first time coming here, do all the novelty things like going on the eye.
id also recommend the thames clippers if you dont get boat sick and going on the cable cars / sky cars if youre not scared of heights.
spend the day in central idk
i think living in londons not even that exciting tbh
maybe go sightseeing and to museums (cuz theyre free😂)
have fun tho
- Hampstead Heath - walk up to Parliament Hill viewpoint
- Brick Lane - walk around and see the street art, or get a curry
- Soho and Chinatown - get some street food from Chinese Tapas House (looks sketchy but trust me they do the best pancakes)
- Find the ears and noses in central London
- Spend a few minutes looking at wacky art in the Tate Modern and then walk along the South Bank
Ignore the h8ers.
NYE in London - tickets are around £5-£8 each to see the fireworks which is an amazing experience if you were thinking about visiting then
Going around the shops on Oxford street
Big Ben/Houses of Parliament
Museums - The British museum and natural history museum.
King's cross' 9 3/4 wall
Picnics at Greenwich Park (or any park really)
The Sky Garden
God's own junkyard
National gallery and the Tate modern
As well as loads of free festivals
Queen's skate bar
There's honestly so much to do so dependent on how long you're staying its best to just make a list of the most important places to you and just choosing to do them. Enjoy the trip
