Tips for an unforgettable holiday in London
If you’re asking how long you should stay in London, I would recommend planning at least five days for your city break in London if you really want to get some serious exploring and soak up the atmosphere properly. This means you can relax in between all of London’s hectic hustle and bustle. You can look for a spot in one of the many sprawling parks and take a little breather – or have a picnic! There you can think about which places you still want to visit in London in peace. Afterwards, you can plunge back into the huge urban jungle with your batteries recharged. There is so much to discover in London!
The many different sights make culture fans’ hearts soar. Once you’ve visited Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, you can enjoy the cuisine on offer in London. Since it’s such an international city you’ll find almost everything from around the world. Japanese, American, Vietnamese… It’s all there! Definitely on’t miss out on London’s street food either. You can find delicious bites to eat at the markets dotted around the city. Borough Market is the place to be if it’s just food you’re looking for, but even if you’re in Camden you’ll come across some amazing dishes on offer. The Sunday markets in Spitalfields are incredible – not only are there food stalls but you’ll also be right by Brick Lane, which has the highest concentration of curry houses in the city!
You can also find many hidden gems in London so you can experience the city like a local and don’t have to just visit the most famous landmarks. There are bars, hotels and shopping possibilities which will show you a new side to London. Explore the posh, leafy neighbourhoods of Hampstead, admire the pretty houses in Notting Hill or go for a stroll along the South Bank and admire the amazing views of London’s skylines.
