No trip to London is ever going to be dull; it’s simply something that is never going to happen. London may not be the City that never sleeps but there is always something for you to do in the capital city of England.
Although you’re unlikely to actually meet the Queen, a trip to London is incomplete without going to Buckingham Palace. Instead of standing outside those magical gates why not actually get shown around the Palace? Throughout July, August and September there are tours of the State Rooms, The Queen’s Gallery and the Royal Mews. Tours take around two hours and it’s something you’ll never forget. Prices range from £19.75 to £34.50 and of course there’s a fantastic range of souvenirs on offer so you’ll never forget the day you were shown around the Queen’s home.
Any football fan would love to go to Wembley Stadium, so why not take one of their stadium tours? Just imagine how you’ll feel when you get shown round the dressing rooms where some of the greatest teams in the world have been. You can sit in the England manager’s chair, climb the steps to the Royal Box, have your photograph taken with a replica of the FA Cup and receive a gift pack including a personalized voucher and message card. Prices start at £17.50.
The West End of London boasts some of the greatest shows in the world. Whether it’s musicals, comedies or the most dramatic plays around, then this is the place to go. With shows such as ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Wicked’, ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ and ‘The Mousetrap’ there’s something for everyone in the West End. There are always some great offers on tickets in the half-price ticket booths and online.
Being imprisoned in the Tower of London was a bit of a torturous experience, but if you’re just paying a visit then it’s a much more enjoyable experience. You can see the Royal Jewels; attend the Ceremony of the Keys which makes sure the Royal Jewels are still there the next morning, the White Tower and the ravens. There’s over 1000 years of history to discover here and even vegetarians won’t mind meeting the Beefeater. Adult tickets start at £22 but it’s cheaper to book online.
If the stars in the West End weren’t enough for you then why not take a trip to Madame Tussauds in Baker Street. There’s over 300 wax figures, the Spirit of London ride and the amazing Marvel Super Heroes 4D movie experience. Just imagine how jealous (and possibly confused) your friends will be when you show them your selfie with Wolverine. Online tickets start at £15 which is a real bargain.
With 14 zones, over 300 wax figures, Spirit of London Ride and the amazing Marvel Super Heroes 4D movie experience, we combine glitz and glamor with incredible history. So, who do you want to meet?
Fans of a certain detective series won’t want to leave Baker Street without visiting the Sherlock Holmes Museum. It’s actually based at 221b Baker Street where the great detective resided. The famous 1st floor study overlooking Baker Street looks just like it did in Victorian Times. At just £10 to get in, this really is unmissable.
If you want to see lots of London without having to travel around the city then take a trip on the London Eye. Built as part of the Millennium celebrations this has become one of the most popular tourists’ attractions in the capital. Tickets start at £26.55 online but there are plenty of great offers online including a combination ticket for the London Eye and Madame Tussauds at £39.95. Even better is the London Pass which for £49 allows you to visit over 60 great London attractions including the Tower of London, Wembley Stadium, The Museum of London and London Zoo.
There really is so much to see in London, it’s just fitting it all in without having to live there full-time that’s the problem.
