Do you have a trip to London? Are you after the best that the city can offer? Well, lucky are you because London is amongst the few destinations where anyone can have more than enough things to do. Expect offerings such as century-old architecture, museums, nature, art galleries, water sports, bus rides and many fun activities.
Regardless of what you want to do, a trip to London would not be complete without visiting the following places:
The Tower of London
The Tower of England, rich in heritage for as acting as a prison, zoo, fortress, home to the Crown Jewels and as a royal residence, is a must-visit. It is as old as William the Conqueror.
The Tower Bridge
The Tower Bridge is easy to confuse with the London Bridge. It rests over River Thames, linking two banks together from as early as 1894 when it was constructed. Originally brown, it has been recreated severally over time. Apart from the incomparable view that viewers experience, watching the bridge lifting to allow the traffic to cross is fascinating enough!
Whenever London is mentioned, the thought of a tall tower extending into the sky with a Roman clock on all four sides at the top comes to mind. That is the Elizabethan Tower or the Big Ben. The tower survived World War II’s bombings, is over 150 years old and is the second largest clock tower on the planet.
Wills and Kate married at the Westminster Abbey. Such a reason is enough to justify anyone’s visit to the big city. The Abbey is a recognized UNESCO World Heritage site. Charles Dickens, Darwin, Newton and Chaucer are all buried in its grounds.
The Kew Gardens
The Royal BotanicKew Gardens is a stunning urban oasis of flowers and plants tucked in the heart of West London. It offers a serene environment for relaxation away from the fast life in London. The Treetop Walkway is a treat that nobody can dare forget!
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
The only opportunity you have of interacting with something from the 16th century comes from visiting London and heading straight to this place. The theatre, which is a reconstruction of the original, is mostly functional in the summer. Apart from being a treasure, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is one of Britain’s most valuable legacies.
