If you are new to London, then let us welcome you to the city of red buses, black cabs, and grey skies. You just might not know where to start exploring when you come to this mega-metropolis. Every borough in London has a story to tell and the story is always evolving that to its people, natives, and immigrants alike.
TOUR THE CITY
While the Big Ben is one of the landmarks of London, there is more the city has to offer. Well, you can start with the Big Ben and not just see it from the outside and have a view as you do when you see it on pictures. Go inside, hear it tick, and the bells toll. From there, you can walk across Westminster Bride and the head on to catch a ride on the London Eye. Check out the British Museum and also, drop by the Whispering Gallery to enjoy some out-of-this-world acoustics. As your tire, take a lunch break at Borough Market.
A bus tour will be a nice way to stay off your feet as you tour the city in the Big Bus Tours. Another alternative is the London Duck Tours, which will see you ditch the city traffic and have a view of London from the main thoroughfare.
FOOD AND MUSIC
While London has a lot to offer regarding cuisine, knowing where to start can be tricky. However, we would suggest trying The Premises and enjoy break all day long as you enjoy some music. Once, you have your heart’s full, head to the Stoke Newington International Airport and enjoy a flight of artistic bliss of shows, concerts, and exhibitions without ever leaving the ground.You can then head to the Spitalfields Market to do some bit of shopping and have a snack and drink. Better yet, get a burger and beer as you get your feet to dancing at 93 Feet East.
If you really have a thing for music and fun, then you should go to Roller Disco and have a taste of the seventies rave as you boogie to the music of those yesteryears while on skates. If that’s not your taste, then try the Notting Hill Arts Club to enjoy a mix of great music.
ENJOY THE EVENTS AND FESTIVITIES
Our favorite pick is the Dennis Severs House, where ten rooms that take you on a journey through time (1724 – 1914). But, there also is another great way to enjoy the evolution of London; just take the Cutting-Edge Green Tour and enjoy a three-hour trip around the city and see recycle fashion, the floating gardens among other experiences. However, if you really want to visit and see the city come alive, then plan to tour in the month of August when London hosts the Notting Hill Carnival that is full of music, food, and hundreds of drummers do their thing as they walk down the streets of London. Well, you can do an early trip in the month of April to come and enjoy the annual boat race where Oxford challenges rivals Cambridge.
