Things To Do In London
Being one of the most recognisable cities in the world most people have at least some semblance of an idea about the best things to see and do. It may be as simple as a stroll through Hyde Park, a viewing of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, or a selfie on Westminster Bridge with the Houses of Parliament looming in the background. Such things are timeless and only cost as much as it takes to get to the city.
It goes without saying that in a place as large and popular as London you will eventually run into something with a ticket price, and that's where CityXplora comes in. For the city's best sightseeing experience check out the Original London Tour. This hop on hop off open-top bus service has three main routes throughout the City of London, each with its own special focus from the classic landmarks to shopping and museums. There's also a night bus tour, which doesn't facilitate hop on hop off but is a fantastic way to admire the cityscape after dark.
A great thing to do in London that combines various top attractions with a sightseeing cruise of the River Thames is a City Cruises tour. For 24-48 hours you can freely travel between four piers along the River Thames: Westminster, London Eye, Tower Bridge and Greenwich. You can add to your ticket any one these five popular attractions: The Coca-Cola London Eye, the London Sea Life Aquarium, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, the Tower of London, or Madame Tussauds.
Not only does London contain an immense list of things to do within its own boundaries, but it's also one of the best places from which to access the wider beauty of England. Evan Evans operate a selection of day tours from the Victoria Coach Station in central London. One of their signature excursions is a trip out to the Salisbury Plains to see the neolithic monument of Stonehenge.
If you have the time and want to experience rural and medieval England at its best then take a look at the 'Warwick Castle, Stratford, Oxford and the Cotswolds Day Tour'. This 11 hour journey will take you to William Shakespeare's childhood home (perfect if you've visited the Globe Theatre in London), one of the best preserved medieval motte-and-bailey castles in Britain, and across the rolling fields of one of England's official 'Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
No trip to London is complete without taking in a top West End Show! With everything to choose from - musicals, dance and drama you really are spoilt for choice with what to see. At CityXplora we have some of the best ticket offers out there. Check out our huge discounts here.
