Oh hey! In this post, I’am going to present you the places I liked to explore during my city trip in London, I hope you will like it! During this trip, we decided to kind of get away from the usual tourist tour (well not entirely at all).
The first quarter we visited is South Kensington, to see the Albert and Victoria museum (really good, I recommend it). We then spend the afternoon in the quarter, you can find there the famous streets with the white houses.
Piccadilly Circus / China Town
At night time, we went to Piccadilly Circus to have a drink. It’s actually one of the rare place in London where bars stay open after 11pm. We went to a Pub, and then made a tour in China Town. We ended the evening in a nightclub but pay attention to the time if you have to take the metro.
Shoreditch is definitely my favorite quarter of London, It’s a mix between arty and business. It’s like the “it” quarter of London, yet still there is not too many tourists which is exactly what we were looking for. there is a lot of street art, covered market, little shop, pubs, etc… I really recommend this one!
Camden Town and Camden Market
Camden Town is a really famous quarter of London, with lots of art, crazy shops and its famous market with vintage shops, craftmens, memory stores, … Yet still, it’s very touristy, so sometimes very expensive. But if you want to find very interesting gifts, it’s the place to be. The best part is in the center of the market, there is a place with tons of little food cabins where you order whatever you want (from all over the world) and eat in the center. This quarter is very popular, I would recommend going first thing in the morning.
The Tate Modern is an old factory reassigned as a modern art museum, extremely interesting with sound effects, etc… Moreover, the top of the tower offers a breathtaking view of the city.
Once you are at the Tate Modern, I recommend you to take a walk along the River Thames, till you reach the Westminster Bridge. It is super pretty, you will cross lots of street artist, outdoors festivals, little places to eat, and of course the London Eye!
The Lion King Musicall
Definitely one of my greatest memories of my city trip. This show is incredible with great singers and amazing decors, I really recommend it if you are a Disney fan (even if not!).
