40 things to do in one day in LONDON

Hello everybody!

I love London. It´s an amazing city with a lot of amazing places and spots inside. I have already dedicated few articles to that, but here is MY personal list with stuff I need to do in London with every visitation. You can do all of this in one day, even with few hours for shopping and just walking around with a goal. I tell you, you will enjoy this day a lot.

1. Take a ride on London Eye

It´s not anything special but surely do try it at least once in the lifetime. The nicest view is in night, to the lightful London.

2. Use London underground

That feeling when walking towards that many people and going around such a big city…

3. Watch a theatre in National Theatre

It costs kinda a lot but it´s really worth it.

4. Shakespeare´s Globe Theatre

Why not? It´s always a good idea.

5. Visit Borough Market

Borough Market is the biggest market in London with many sellers from a lot of countries all around the world.

6. Go on the top of Tower Bridge

Enjoy the view, dames en heren.

7.  Take a photo under the Big Ben

This is really a must-have in London.

8. Wait in a long queue for Westminster Abbey

9. Get a hot cocoa in the shop under the Westminster Abbey. It will warm you from bad weather and strong English winds.

10. Walk past house of English Prime Minister

Guards won´t let you even have a look inside.

Bikes can be borrowed everywhere, such as in Amsterdam or Brussels.

18. Look for the most famous paintings in National Gallery

One of the best is right in the beginning near the cashes- Van Gogh´s Tournesols.

Cakes offered are delicious!

21. Eat in ,,All you can eat” restaurant

23. Look for celebrities on Leicester square

I met Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth.

24. Visit M&M’s World on Leicester square

Huge, colorful, M&M full shop where you will spend a lot of money if you love sweets.

Standing on the balcoon and listening to talented young musicians is really one of the best activities in London.
