A bunch of things to do. You’ll never get bored in London

As always super crowded but nothing to be worried about .

Itinerary Overview

As many of you guys might know London is a special city, it has so much to offer, from huge museums with art form all over the world to the best restaurants in the world.

It can be a bit crowded and chaotic city but once you get used to it you really start to enjoy and understand the way London moves.

My first day in London was a mix of everything it was my first solo travel so on the one hand I was pretty scared but on the other hand  I was excited to discover and feel the atmosphere of a city like this.

Once I get to my friend’s flat I took a shower and then went on a quick tour around the city center Piccadilly Circus, Oxford street, trafagar square, Big Ben, London eye, soho and some of the most touristic places in London. The next day was way more exciting we went to Hyde park and get some beers, it was summer so the weather was a bit hot but nothing that really mattered. That day he took me to the national gallery, Tate museum, British museum and some others, such an experience and the best of it all was that all museums were for  free.

On Friday we wanted to party, during the day we didn’t do too much just chilling at home and went on a little walk around Regents park and queen Mary’s garden, then around 9 in the night we took the metro or tube as they called it (btw I suggest you you get a oyster card, transport in London could be expensive). We went to Camden town, what an amazing zone, full of craziness, happiness and lifeee, at that moment I really felt why London is one of the most amazing cities in the world. After grabbing some pints in a pub in cambien town some friends told us about this techno club called fabric, so we took an Uber eland went there, I still can believe the  way these people party it was amazing and so fun.

On Saturday I decided to take bus to bath a small but really historical place, with some Roman influence and pretty landscapes. I stayed there form one night but it help me to meet a balance between the craziness of a city like London and the peacefulness of a small tow like bath.

One of my favorite experiences during my trip in London was going on a boat party through the Thames River in the evening with sunset hitting us. After such a nice party  we went back to the flat had some beers and listened some music. The next day we went to Harrods, it’s always good to do some window shopping, then had lunch at Hyde Park, there are always many many people but it feels nice to see everyone happy and enjoying themselves. The last day in London we walked around Kennington park, the Oval and Vauxhall. Then we got the bus at Victoria station around 5 pm and arrived at 8 in the night, once in bath we just stayed at the hotel, although it’s not a long trip you can get super tired.   The next day we went on a tour around the town and visited places like the Roman baths, museum of East Asian art and took a presecco boat trip.

    Places like Trafalgar Square or Oxford street might be a bit crowded so I recommend you to be careful with your things and avoid pickpockets

    In London the smaller the restaurant is the better the food. Always go to Asians food.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    During summer seize your schedule in the best possible way, wake-up early and go to bed late.

    As the summer hits hard in London it’s better to go light and also remember that sale and discounts in UK are quite good.

    For London get a Oyster card with a weekly plan, it’ll save you some money.
