Many people travel to destinations around the world for a variety of reasons. If someone’s idea of the perfect place to visit would have impressive history, all the modern amenities of a big city, top entertainment, and hotel accommodations to fit any budget, then London could be the city they’d consider the perfect place to visit.
Watch the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace
This ceremony is known around the world for its pomp and circumstance, and has been taking place for hundreds of years. It occurs at Buckingham Palace at 11:30 am every day during the summer months, and every other day during the winter. All of the palace guards participate in the ceremony and are dressed in historic red tunics and bearskin hats.
Visit Buckingham Palace
During the months of August and September visitors can see the State Rooms in Buckingham Palace. This is where the British Monarchy has lived since 1937. It has 188 bedrooms with 775 rooms in total including 78 bathrooms.
Walk along the Thames and look at all the magnificent sites
The Thames leads people past some of the most notable attractions in all of London. There is Big Ben as well as the London Eye. Within walking distance on the Thames is the Sherlock Holmes Museum as well as the London Canal Museum. There is also Hallows by the Tower Church, which was built in 675 AD as well as many other notable attractions.
Take a red double-decker bus ride
They’ve been featured in such well known movies as Harry Potter, described in countless novels and well worth the experience. Locals will tell you to take the routes that are longest to get the most value for your money.
See Westminster Abbey
The place in the United Kingdom where most of the Kings and Queens of England are entombed. This is where Queen Elizabeth’s coronation was held in 1953, as well as the place where Princess Diana’s funeral was held in 1993.
Visit Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens
Kensington Gardens are known for their stunning beauty and the pleasure they bring children. It’s possible for children to play at the Princess Diana Playground, and interested adults can then go into the palace and view a large assortment of Princess Diana’s dresses.
Buy something at Portobello Market
This is one of the best known markets in the world. Shoppers here can find fantastic deals on everything from antiques to secondhand clothes, fruits and vegetables, fashion clothing and more.
See a play at a theatre
Some of the best plays and musicals worldwide are performed in London. Many of the theatres are historic such as the Harold Pinter Theatre, Currently Old Times at Harold Pinter Theatre holds over 960 people over four different levels. Whatever it takes to make a visit perfect can probably be found somewhere within London.
