Things to do in London
Hey fellow readers and travelers! This article will be about one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. I had the pleasure of seeing the best-known landmarks and visiting a few very interesting places.
London is a capital city of United Kingdom. I bet that many things come to your mind when I mention London. Double-decker red buses, London telephone booth or places you could see in the movies.
What to see in London for free…
When you think about London, the first thing that comes to your mind is definitely Big Ben clock. When was Big Ben built? This famous and iconic monument was built in 1859 and has undergone several renovations since then. How tall is Big Ben? Its height is 96 meters.
I had the opportunity to see it in its full beauty, as its last renovation was completed in 2022. During this renovation, the bell fell silent and only rang on very important occasions. If you’re looking for something to see or visit for free, Big Ben it’s the great place because it’s not gorgeous only from the inside but from the outside as well. Visitors who want to see it from the inside and are willing to pay the entrance fee have to climb 334 stairs to reach the upper bell tower.
The most iconic and famous bridge in London is definitely Tower Bridge, which you definitely cannot miss when visiting London. This bridge, made up of two towers, opens when a tall and large ship is crossing the River Thames. If you want to visit the bridge, you can purchase Tower Bridge tickets and enjoy a tour of the inside of the towers and the upper path of the bridge.
Book Sky Garden tickets in advance and for free! A mesmerizing view of the whole city? No problem! Only thing you need to do is to visit the tall building where there is garden with glass windows and terrace offering the best view of London. Are you a coffee lover? You can enjoy a cup of delicious coffee or afternoon tea at Sky Garden London. There is also a bar near a relaxation zone. If you would like to spend more time here, there is also the option of booking a table in a restaurant with British specialties or various cocktails.
Is Chinatown London worth visiting? Definitely! Where is Chinatown located? Close to Leicester Square (as well as a tube stop), this neighborhood is really hard not to notice. Chinese red lanterns hang in the air between all the streets of this district. Except various shops and restaurants, there are also bars and pastry shops with Asian snacks and specialties. You may think that you are not in London, because the construction and architectural elements of the buildings really resemble cities in China. I visited Chinatown just when the Chinese were celebrating the New Year´s Eve, so the atmosphere was definitely different from a normal day.
As a lover of various street shops and interesting places, I couldn’t not visit Nothing Hill. Houses in pastel colors that will surely spice up your Instagram feed if you take a picture with them. That’s probably one of the first things that comes to mind when people think of Nothing Hill.
It is very easy to get there by subway, but also on foot. If you’re in Hyde Park, for example, it’s about a 25-minute walk. There is a famous Nothing Hill London Market, Portobello market, which runs along a street called Portobello road. If you decide to visit it, you will definitely not leave empty-handed. The day when there are the most stalls and sellers is Saturday (which I didn’t know about, but even on Monday, there were quite a few stalls). On Saturdays, you can find things from the world’s inventions there. From antiques, vintage clothes, books, souvenirs to fresh fruit, vegetables and freshly roasted coffee.
Things to do in Camden Town
Camden Town is one of the most popular and interesting neighborhoods in London. It is a place that is artistic, its houses are creatively coloured and especially full of street performers playing musical instruments or singing. However, it is not only about the environment you are in, but also about the people. Among the many locals, you will find tourists from all over the world, creating a friendly atmosphere.
Camden is really not a trip for just one day and if you really wanted to go through everything that this area has to offer, you would definitely need more time. If you’re just passing through it, don’t hesitate to stop in one of the many shops, where you’ll find things that are truly the invention of the world. In addition to the little things you can buy, don’t hesitate to visit the Camden Town market area, where there are street food restaurants offering food from all over the world. From Asian, Chinese or Mexican dishes to typical American and English specialties.
