Top Things To Do:
Mind the Gap
The London Underground (‘the Underground’ or simply ‘the Tube’) is the world’s first underground railway dating back to 1863. With 270 stations it is a convenient and cost-effective way to get anywhere in London. Don’t be intimidated getting around, the tube maps are easy to follow. As you travel through the stations you will see stunning architecture that makes you feel like you are travelling back in time. Grab yourself an Oyster Card, travel like a Londoner and remember to mind the gap!
Eating in the Loo
As you drink your tea and devour a freshly baked pastry, you might realize that there is something unique about The Attendant. This café was formerly a 19th century Victorian men’s public washroom (don’t worry, they scrubbed it clean). Tucked away underground, the average tourist might not even notice the entrance, but this hidden gem is only a 5-minute walk from Oxford Street and will provide the perfect place for a unique and delicious lunch.
Picnic in the Park
Sprawling over 350 acres and containing over 4,000 trees, a lake, a meadow and ornamental flower gardens, Hyde Park it is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Visitors can explore the park on foot or even rent a bike for as little as £2.
Around Big Ben
As a prominent symbol of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth Tower, home to the iconic bell, Big Ben, is a must see in London. After you grab your selfie in front of this icon, take a seven-minute walk to the London Eye. With 360 views of London, you can plot your next adventure as you tower over the city. Or, head to Piccadilly Circus to take in the world-famous lights and signs in the vibrant hub of London’s West End.
An Eclectic Shopping Experience
Camden Market is the perfect place to find a unique and memorable souvenir of your trip to London. After spending hours exploring the eclectic mix of stores and stalls, you can grab a snack at the Cereal Killer Cafe. This Cafe takes you on a nostalgic trip back into the 1990s where you get to eat all the sugary cereals your mother never let you have.
