Let us introduce you to some of them.
What to do in London: Royal City
The English capital is also one of the places of royal residence. The English are very attached to their monarch. By going to Buckingham Palace, you will better understand the relationship between the Queen and the British. The palace is not open all year round, only between August and September. But, in this place, you will be able to attend the changing of the guard every day at 11:30 am. We also recommend that you visit the Tower of London. It was the former royal prison, which today houses the crown jewels. You will also discover more than 90 years of British history. Finally, you can go to Westminster Abbey. It is in this building that the coronations have been held for more than a thousand years, but the abbey is also the site of state funerals.
Art in London
If you like art, you will find many places that will please you. Our first advice is to go to the National Gallery. This museum has a very large collection of paintings from Western Europe from the 13th to the 19th century. In particular, you will find paintings by Van Gogh, De Vinci, Botticelli, Constable, Renoir, Titian and Stubbs. The museum is free, but you must pay for some temporary exhibitions. We also advise you to go to the British Museum. In this museum you will find the Rosetta stone, the sculptures of the Parthenon and the mummies of ancient Egypt. To finish it, you can go to the Tate Museum. Built in a former power plant, this museum opened in May 2000. It hosts many exhibitions (Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol, Paul McCarthy, René Magritte, Fernand Léger)
Recreational museums in London
If you like panoramic views, go to Coca-Cola London Eye. From this Ferris wheel you have the highest view of London, with its 32 cabins, which can accommodate up to 25 people. In 30 minutes, you can take a walk and observe 55 tourist attractions in London. In the Science Museum, you can relive and discover the greatest scientific advances of the past 300 years. Everything is explained for everyone to understand the different experiences, or you can visit the natural history museum. You can observe a collection of the largest, largest and rarest animals in the world.
What to do in London: Outings
Every weekend, in the afternoon or evening, you can go to a football or rugby match in a stadium. The English capital has many clubs (Arsenal, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Tottenham, West Ham for football, Saracens, London Irish and Harlequins for rugby). You can enjoy the atmosphere that you will only find in English stadiums. Fans sing throughout the game to the glory of their club and the players. To go out in the evening, you will find many pubs and clubs in the city. Camden Town is better suited to the rock and jazz atmosphere. If you prefer a funk, hip hop or drum'n'bass atmosphere, we advise you to go to Brixton. Finally Soho is a district where you will find more intimate clubs.
We hope you will enjoy your stay, and that our experience in London has helped you.
