As I eagerly await for my trip over to London next weekend, I had a look back to see whether I have ever been a tourist in this fine city. I actually think not! Having lived there for two years and travelling often to see friends, you generally miss out on the time to go sightseeing. I must admit I have not been to many of the London Tourist Attractions. In this list I will mix it up, the things I totally should have seen and visited, even in my first days of London, and the ones that I have been to and must highly recommend.
This one is a given right?! Everyone has to go on the London Eye. I have failed there. Although it is not like I don’t want to! I would have loved to have attended the Red Bull event they held there, or go up on a quiet London Summer’s evening and watch the sun set over the city. I think it is definitely on my to do list. However in Summer I would book in advance and you can get 40% off tickets here.
Warner Bros Studio:
This is one that is so high on the bucket list, I am dying to go and experience the Wizarding world of Mr HP! I mean who wouldn’t, a magical themed where you can see the sets and props of my favourite childhood film! One day I tell you I will go and it will be fabulous! Someone take me please?!
As I generally don’t have many claims to fame, this would give me the chance to brush shoulders with the A listers. Who wouldn’t want that right?! I have been to the one in Blackpool and the details in the models are freakishly accurate. I would love to check out the London one. Head to Discount London for great offers on tickets.
The one thing I have been to countless times is The TATE! It really is a must see with constantly changing exhibitions, every time I go back there is something new on. You only have to pay for a few exhibit and you can easily skip them out too! Wear sensible shoes and be prepared for hours of walking! It it well worth it though!
The British Museum:
The Pantheon, Rosetta Stone, this place has it all, for a minute we can forget how it got there. This is your chance to see a piece of living history and it is pretty incredible. Go through time, continents and culture and discover more about the world you live in. Top tip is to head there early so you can waltz straight in.
Duck and Waffle:
One of the best places I have ever dined in London! Lucky me hey! Set on the 40th you can tuck into your dug leg whilst starring out over the city. If you manage to get a table by the window, it’s even better! Warning you must book in advance, especially at the weekend, unless like me you decide to go for a 1am nibble!
