There’s no need to choose between discovering the historical or innovative side of London! You can spend a morning soaking up the splendour of the Tower of London or the grittiness of Wartime London, and the afternoon admiring the far-reaching views from the iconic Shard or London Eye.
When it comes to shopping, you’re spoilt for choice with high street and designer stores aplenty on Oxford Street, the eclectic, alternative boutiques of Camden and all that’s in between. Even refreshment breaks can take place at the shops when you treat yourself to afternoon tea at Harrods. Why not – you’re in London!
Looking for some family fun to round off a day of exploring? Take the weight off your feet and see load more sights from the city’s iconic river on a Thames River Cruise.
When kids are different ages it can be a nightmare finding something that everyone will enjoy, but the Sea Life London Aquarium is fascinating, fun and educational too (just don’t mention that bit to the kids!) – particularly if you opt for the Behind-the Scenes Tour.
Bursting with life, steeped in history and awash with a variety of cultures, the choice of things to do in London make it one of Europe’s, if not the world’s, most famous cities.
England’s capital combines high-energy urban charm with green open spaces, so you have the choice whether you want to get in the middle of the action or escape to a leafy sanctuary.
It’s easy to experience the city’s past and present as both historical and uber-modern London attractions stand practically side-by-side.
