22 Nov Visit London in 3 days
London is a huge city and there are so many things to do, so when you plan to come for a weekend it is hard to decide what things should be on the top of your list. Don’t worry, we planned everything for you! Here are a few tips to visit London in 3 days!
Day One: start your first day by enjoying some outdoors activities!
The best way to start your first day in London is by having a walk in the famous Hyde Park. You can travel through the whole park and arrive at Buckingham Palace which is not that far away and see the Guard Change in front of the Palace. Afterward, you can walk through St James’s Park until you reach Westminster which is near to the park. We suggest you have lunch at a typical Pub around the Parliament (we recommend the Red Lion Pub). In front of the Parliament you can take the boat to reach the Tate Modern and have an incredible contemporary exhibition (have a look here to see the best exhibitions of Winter in London). If you’re still not too tired, have a short walk along the Thames River and stare at the Tower Bridge. You could have a cup of tea along the Thames River. For the night, we suggest you have dinner in Covent Garden, where there are lots of restaurants. You will for sure find the perfect one for you.
Day Two: all the must-sees in London!
You can start your day with a bit of culture. Go to the National Gallery, in Trafalgar Square, it is one of the biggest museums in the world and you’ll be able to stare at Leonardo Da Vinci’s pieces of art. Now that it’s time to lunch, you can walk on Pall Mall Street all the way through Regent Street and finally have lunch around Piccadilly Circus, which is one of the most famous places in London. There are lots of restaurants that will please you for sure. Now that you are in Piccadilly and that you’ve seen Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, it’s time to have fun. You have the choice: you can go to the London Zoo, the Aquarium or to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. After this great afternoon, you could have a royal tea at Claridge’s (the closest tube station is Bond Street) and get some well-deserved rest. For the evening, we suggest a tour on City Cruises. You could take the boat and have a tour along the Thames River at night.
Day Three: discover beautiful, unique areas of London!
This is your last day in the City. You can’t leave London without having a brunch in Notting Hill and we suggest the Electric Diner. After having the perfect brunch, you should have a walk from Portobello Road to Holland Park. In Holland Park, you will be able to see Kyoto’s Garden, a stunning Japanese park. After that, you could end your trip to Chelsea. It’s 2 miles away from Holland Park so you can either take the tube, the cab or walk. Go to the Saatchi Gallery as there are always great exhibitions. This is probably the time for you to go back home and say goodbye to this great city.
