Highs & Lows

Getting lost in the streets and always finding something beautifully unexpected around the corner

Even in October, as you’d expect in the Capital it’s very busy and places can get crowded quickly.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    The length of time we were there! While two days is definitely enough to see the main attractions, there is always so much more to explore and I hope to go back soon to dive even deeper into the unknown areas.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Try and walk as much as possible in order to maximise your experience. Also avoid dining in the main areas, it’s much more cost effective to travel a little further out, and the food is just as good! It also helps support local businesses which is always a bonus.

  • Packing tips?

    Weather is unpredictable in England, and while it’s definitely sunnier in London than up north, I’d still recommend a warm jacket and waterproof/ umbrella just in case!

  • Transportation Tips?

    The tube is your best friend in London and will help you get pretty much anywhere you need to be. Avoid buying an Oyster card and instead use your normal debit/credit card, we found this to be more cost effective.
