5 Things To Do In London*

I love London. It’s less than 2 hours away from where I live and like a whole different world. I love the business, the fact there is so much to do. I haven’t been to London for ages and would like to plan a trip soon so I can often be found browsing the web planning my itinerary.

I’ve put together a list of the top 5 things I would like to do when I next visit London, and I hope this gives you some ideas If you’re planning a visit.

Natural History Museum

 The great thing about the Natural History museum in South Kensington is that it is free to visit. You can kill loads of time looking around the museums and even though I have been many times before, I always seem to find things that I don’t recall seeing before. They currently have a Coral Reef exhibition until September 13th where you can immerse yourself in the underwater world of tropical coral reefs, some of the most bio-diverse environments in the world. Tickets for this particular event start at £4.50.

Oxford Street Shopping

London has so many shops that we don’t have in Norwich and I always take the opportunity to head down Oxford Street and visit them all. Oxford Street is a major road in the City of Westminster in the West End of London and is Europe's busiest shopping street. I must end my shopping trip with a Krispy Kreme Donut – delicious!

London Dungeons

This is somewhere I have never been but I have heard so much about and really want to visit. I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to things like this so I’m not sure how I would react. The London Dungeons have recently had a bit of a revamp and claim to be bigger and better than before. The experience is approximately a 90 minute journey through 1000 years of London's shady past. You can save money by booking in advance online which is recommended as it is one of London's most popular attractions.

London Eye

To get a full view of London, I would love to go on the London Eye. I have been on here before but think it would be great to go on as the sun is setting and watch the city look beautifully lit up from the view that is high above the River Thames. Standard adult tickets start from just £19 if you book online and the experience will last just over half an hour so great if you're trying to kill a bit of time before dinner.

Opera Tickets In London

How nice would it be to end your evening watching a show at the English National Opera. I can picture myself having dinner then heading to get some Opera tickets in London. I really want to see The Barber of Seville which runs from 28th September - 11th November 2016 and aims to have you smiling from the moment it begins. There are even some tickets available under £20 so an evening at the Opera will not break the bank. The ENO's productions are sung in English so are great for those just getting into Opera. If you are looking for Opera tickets in London then I definitely recommend an evening at the ENO.

Let me know where you love to go in London?
