Visiting London, England

“When there are things that don’t go according to plan, London will cope.”

London always seemed rejecting to me, because of the rain and bad weather, but it proved me the contrary when getting there. So here are 5 travel tips, from a week well spent there:

  1. The more you want to see, the more you need to walk.

Depending on where your accomodation is, you can decide on taking the tube. For that I recommend to invest in an Oyster Card, this will save you time and money when it comes to travel related costs that seem to eat up our cash. Grab an Oyster Card (which is FREE, with a small refundable deposit) from a Tube Station and pre-load a given amount onto the card. When using the card, your will benefit of discounts and have a lower expense rate.

Another alternative are the Bus Tours. If you want to save a great deal off that price then jump on board a red London bus. One of my favourite journey’s to take is on the 24 hour bus number 453 from Marylebone Station – hop on and grab yourself a seat upstairs!

You’ll see: Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Downing Street, Houses Of Parliament, Big Ben and The London Eye, where you can hop off and experience London’s Southbank by foot.

Or take a free walking tour—both Sandemans and Undiscovered London offer free tours of the city. Though the guides are not professional, they are local and are usually enthusiastic students and volunteers who love taking travelers on a trek through their city.

2. Awesome Museums you have to see

Who wouldn’t want to visit FREE museums?

The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, The British Museum and many more are free for anyone to visit. You can spend a day wandering through the many historical artefacts and enjoy the rich heritage the city has to offer.

 

3. Discover the little things and explore the city

4. Minimarkets and Supermarkets for easy and cheap snacks

The city is full of little shops where you can buy some sandwiches or snacks to go, to keep you filled up with energy. Look for the locals with TESCO bags, and you are closer then you think.

5. Don’t forget a raincoat or umbrella or both

So this way the weather cannot change your plans.

Enjoy.
