London is my favourite city in the world and I have been there many times. There are so many things to do and to discover but to see them all is nearly impossible. So today I share my musts in London with you. These are the things I would show to someone who hasn’t been in London before.
National Gallery is located at the Trafalgar Square. Inside you can find a great collection of paintings. My favourite ones are the Monets.
Tate Modern is a modern art museum on the South Bank. It is always great to walk around in the museum and to be inspired by the amazing pieces of art. Moreover they often change the exhibitions so you can see something new all the time.
British Museum is a huge museum which is dedicated to human history, art and culture. The building itself is awesome and the several rooms are stunning. Especially the Egypt collection is amazing.
Houses of Parliament & Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben)
These are London’s most iconic landmarks. The Palace of Westminster is the meeting place of the two Houses of Parliament of the UK. The Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock in the Elizabeth Tower.
Trafalgar Square & Nelson’s Column
The column is a monument in the centre of Trafalgar Square built to commemorate Admiral Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar.
Tower & Tower Bridge
Today the Tower of London is a museum. There you can see the Crown Jewels among many other things. The near by Tower Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world.
St Paul´s Cathedral
It is a beautiful Baroque church designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1673. When you visit a church service the entry is free otherwise you have to pay. However when you pay you are able to discover the different parts of the cathedral. From the crypt to the Golden Gallery with an amazing view over London.
The Camden Markets are a number of retail markets in Camden Town. Along the Camden High Street are several stores, restaurants and markers. There are great food stands and shops. Sometimes it is possible to negotiate prices.
The Circus is famous for its video display and neon signs. It is close to shopping and entertainment areas.
Regent Street & Oxford Street
These are one of the most famous shopping areas in the world. My favourite stores are Topshop, Zara, H&M, Primark, Superdrug and Boots.
South Bank Walk
This is a walk from the Tower Bridge to the Westminster Bridge (Houses of Parliament & Big Ben). From the South Bank you have amazing views at iconic buildings. Especially during sunset it is pretty beautiful.
