London Eye - Things To Do In London

What is there to do in London?  

Plenty!  

We have collected a fine list of fun things to do in London. Come on! Live a little! To make it even easier, we highlighted the free things and the ones you have to pay for, cool right?  

Visit Wembley Park 

Wembley Park

Wembley Park is just an effortlessly exciting place to go touring. Did you know that the popular TV series The X-factor is shot at Wembley Park Studios?  

That show and many of your other favorite shows are done in Wembley Park. We will not let you miss out on the Wembley Park party! Featuring free live music and wild entertainment. Adorned with decorations and play segments for both adults and children. When you’re hungry, take a walk to Wembley Park restaurant and rest away.

Swap the bustle!!! 

Willing to splurge some money? Then this is the sweetest thing to do. Excuse us if you’ve been so busy. We are here for you with access to nice luxurious places you can be.   

The Cotswolds is a place where you can swap the bustle of London and life in general for a peaceful rural beauty. Oh, there are gorgeous towns and villages where you can take strolls and enjoy a nice lovely breeze and you can’t miss out on the 2-course lunch at the hotel restaurants in the heart of Cotswolds.

Tour the Tower of London- we consider this activity a must-do, well, in this case, a must-see(winks). First, we are not just referring to the sight of the buildings. We are talking about living in London’s royal history, seeing fascinating histories, and striding past the Monarchy of London on foot! Yes, we mean that! Buckingham Palace is part of the Tower of London and you get to watch the horse guard’s parade… Did we mention that you’re allowed to see the Crown Jewel of the British monarchy? Royalty treatment for the royal guests. Awesome right?!

Get On The London Eye 

Everybody knows this Ferris wheel is not just a regular huge circle with large capsules, it is the most popular landmark in London, in fact, it is London’s most toured place. So if you’re single on this vacation, you might meet someone here. We would recognize the London eye from photographs or movies or anything, it is everywhere, but visiting here, getting on the wheel, and having your picture of the eye is truly exciting.   

Interesting fact: the large Ferris wheel has 32 capsules, numbered 1-12 and 14-33, did you notice that the number 13 is missing? Yes, it was skipped due to a superstitious belief that 13 is a bad luck number, creepy but cool.

Go To A Pub!  

Who doesn’t like to party? A pub is the cheapest way to have a good party experience. The folks in here usually have the same spirit – jolly and cheerful. Daring each other to a bunch of fun stuff. You can join a booze contest, or a singing challenge, or just dance around the pub. We just wanna have some fun, right? And of course, no one is going to tell on you. Just lay your horses and live away!

Date Night On A Bus! 

You could go alone (it is called masturdating nowadays), or you could go with someone. We are rooting for you to just go experience the unique fine dining done on a bus. They offer different meals as the bus moves around London’s iconic sights, quite cool right? You better hurry.

Visit London Zoo  

London Zoo

The London Zoo is the oldest zoo in the world and also the most famous one, visiting this zoo is one of the things to do in London. It has more than 750 species and more than 17000 animals.

Get On A River Cruise Or A Boat Tour!  

London is popular for river and boat cruises and we would regret it if you didn’t get on one, at least you can go on an afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames or a Regent’s Canal waterbus boat trip to Zamden. Oh, dear! the London Eye river cruise is also waiting, go on and have this merriment!

First time visiting London?

What You Should Know 

Are you in London for the first time? How long do you plan to stay in London? What season is the time of your visit to London? To know the seasons is quite important so you can pack up accordingly, but these are just basic things. We have a list of things to point you to on your first journey.

• Purchase a visitor oyster card at home before arriving. The London oyster is an important thing to get before coming to London. It is used to pay for any more transportation and is quicker and cheaper.

• Look up your destinations: a lot of places in London are only accessible through bookings and reservations. To avoid long queues and sometimes disappointment, make proper research on where you’re going, how to get there, and how to access it.

• Stick to your budget: London is a place of luxury, it is a place of bewilderment and plenty of fun with lots of attraction. If you’re not careful, you will end up spending all your cash on sightseeing and treats. However, we wouldn’t want that for you but don’t go under budget either.

• Plan your day, activities, and visits. It is important to plan your day before stepping out.

Non-Touristy Things To Do In London  

Of course, every tourist wants to go to popular London tourist attractions but we are not all for that if you’re not, so we are giving you a number of things you can do differently:

• By now, everyone knows where to find newcomers, you’ll see them at the Shard, The Kew gardens, or The London Eye… that’s enough.

We introduce you to the Garden at 120. A 15-story building that harbors a commercial gallery, has over 30 tree fruits, 85 Italian wisteria trees, and a 2000ft long flowing water fountain. Full-time Londoners are conversant with London’s largest public rooftop space which gives a 360-degree view of the city beautifully.  

• Eating at picturesque hotels and popular restaurant is well known to tourists. Non-tourists would sometimes settle for places like the Leadenhall market. We love the bustling energy and efficient service of Leadenhall market, although made popular by Harry Potter fans, Leadenhall market is not always a tourist’s first choice. 

• Visit a bookshop: London is the city where stories happen every day, stories are written about, and stories are loved. Bookshops should be one of the most toured places but oh, well! 

• Expensive arts are also very cool but if you’re looking to pick up an unusual gift or just see art in a not-so-common place, then we recommend the Brick Lane Blackyard market. A place of blissful original arts made by locals. 

Fun Facts About London

• Did you know that over 300 languages are spoken in London? Wait, we will explain; London is a city with over nine million residents from different parts of the world, of course, your first-door neighbor can’t speak the same language as the third.

• London is surprisingly the smallest city in England. This small City has about 8 million trees. By modern UN’s definition of a forest, London can be officially recognized as a forest. Wow!

• During a tour around the city, watch out for the Royal flag, if you find one at any royal resident, say Buckingham palace, then the Queen resides there.

• Due to a superstitious belief, 6 Ravens are bred in the Tower of London and are believed to protect the tower. The practice dates back to the monarch age of Charles II

• There are more Indian Restaurants in London than there are in Mumbai, lol. Well, not literally, we mean that comparing the cuisine excellence of Indian foods, London statistically has the Michelin stars.   

• Did you know that there are more than one Londons in the world? Our very own UK London is the most fun and popular London. We have a few quotes that will agree with us- Samuel Jackson says “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”

• Another says “in London everyone is different, that means any one can fit in”

• Have you ever been to London? What were your experiences like?
