Things to Do in London
Wherever you choose to stay in London, there are plenty of intriguing to keep you entertained on your vacation or during downtime on your business trip. There are several must-do activities that should be included in every England trip, including a visit to the London Eye, British Museum and Tate Modern. But there are also an array of other, lesser-known sites worth checking out. For an inside look at how the locals shop and interact, head to Brixton Village, a lively bazaar filled with locals and vendors selling antiques, clothes, handmade items and homemade treats. The Kensington Roof Gardens, Windsor Castle, Madame Tussauds and Tower of London can also help make your visit truly memorable.
Those seeking an authentic culinary experience can grab a seat at Gun - walk down a cobblestone path along the river to reach this pub, which dates back to the 18th century and drink an English beer while looking out at the Thames. Other hot spots include The Abbeville Kitchen, George & Dragon and Brunswick House Cafe. While in town, be sure to take some time to see the queen's official residence, Buckingham Palace. Those who arrive in summer can tour the 19 state rooms. Guests can also use this opportunity to experience a royal tradition: the Changing of the Guard, a formal ceremony where a new guard relieves an old guard of his duties for the day. It occurs every day at 11:30 a.m. between May and July and every other day at this time the rest of the year.
