Things to do in London

From the majestic architecture of Westminster Abbey, to the colourful and vibrant west end, and the ecstatic atmosphere in Oxford Street, London is truly a metropolitan city with something to do for everyone. In this article we are going to explore just a few of London’s top attractions and where to find them.

London for the History Buff

Anyone who is an avid history lover needs to have London on their bucket list. Whether it is to explore its ancient Roman roots, or to travel back in time way to the period when Stonehenge was erected, or closer to modernity to the times of the two World Wars, London is definitely the place to be.

That is not to mention the majestic Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle or Kensington Palace for the fans of the Royal Family.

The bottom line is, that no matter which historic era you are interested in, London has something to tickle your fancy!

London for the Shopaholic

Who doesn’t love shopping? Secretly or openly we all like to indulge from time to time….and there’s no better place in the world to do just that than London itself. Once again, whether you are interested in the big names in the world of fashion, or the everyday brands, London caters for everyone.

Whether you like shopping for clothes, antiques, books…you can find just about everything in London.

London for the Art lover

London is paradise for art lovers. A stroll around Camden town or a visit to one of the many museums or art galleries around the city is enough to satisfy anyone’s interest. Whether you are after modern and contemporary art, or if it is photography that you like, or whether you are mostly interested in sculpture, and even if you love exploring the hidden meaning behind graffiti….well, there’s no place like London!

Art galleries and art exhibitions pop up at every corner, sometimes in incredible historical buildings and at other times in converted venues or newly-built spaces.

London for the Theatre-goer

London’s west end musicals are some of the most famous in the world. No London trip is complete without a visit to one of the theatres in London's entertainment district around Leicester Square and Covent Garden. This is truly the place where adults become children, singing along to the famous songs from recent musicals as well as the classics.

London for the Food lover

Gastronomy is another important pillar in London. Many associate all of England, and especially London, with ‘fish ‘n chips’. While you can truly find some of the best fish and chips in London, you can also find anything else that your heart (or in this case your belly) desires.

As David Bailey (photographer), rightly puts it, “If you are curious, London’s an amazing place”. In this article we have only explored a few of this city’s highlights.
