Visit Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens is a bit of an undiscovered gem. It’s one of the largest and best collections of rare plants and trees in the world, and is an all-round great day trip destination.
Walk in the canopy in the arboretum, climb the Great Pagoda for unencumbered views and visit the stunning greenhouses to see plants from all over the world.
Climb Aboard the Cutty Sark
The Cutty Sark is one of the best museums in the city- and that’s saying something.
A perfectly restored ship from the golden age of ship making, this living museum allows you to experience life aboard one of the greatest ships ever built. It travelled the world delivering tea around the British Empire, and now makes for a fascinating visit.
Day Trip to Windsor
Windsor Castle is the largest and longest lived in castle in the world. It has been home to members of the royal family for 1,000 years, and is now one of the premier visitor’s destinations in London.
Visit the British Museum
The British Museum is home to around 8 million objects, and showcases the entirety of human history.
No where in the world will you find a more comprehensive and stunning collection- from the Homo-Sapiens, to ancient Greece, to the normans- it’s all here.
Chow Down at Borough Market
Borough Market has existed, in some form or another, in the same place for an estimated 1,000 years.
Currently, it’s one of the best places in the city to get a delicious lunch- but you can also get gloriously fresh groceries, artisanal bread, stunning coffee and incredible delicatessen products. It is truly a foodie’s heaven.
Van Gogh: The immersive Experience
Arguably the most famous and influential artist of all time can now be enjoyed in an entirely new way.
This exhibition looks at the tragic life of the artist who changed the world, and allows you to step into his stunning creations- art exhibits will never be the same after this.
Ride the London Eye
The London Eye originally opened as a temporary attraction for the city, but it was immediately insanely popular.
Within a couple of years the agreement had been made to make it a permanent fixture for London. You can hire a private pod for Valentine’s day that includes a bottle of bubbly, a private host and some delicious truffles.
Watch a Sunset from Primrose Hill
Primrose Hill is another undiscovered hot spot in the city centre- although it is popular with locals.
Just across the road from the stunning Regent’s Park, this gradual hill takes you to the perfect height to view the stunning skyline- from within the city centre. It’s the perfect place to grab a picnic and chill with your significant other.
Visit the London Dungeons
If you’re after a thrill and just so happen to love a bit of history, then the London dungeons are for you.
London’s gruesome history is brought to life by actors and displays- escape the fire of London, meet Jack the Ripper and ride the pitch black flume!
Explore London’s Parks
Greater London is an absolutely gigantic area- it actually takes up 15 times what Paris does! So it’s even more impressive when you learn that a staggering 18% of the city is green space and parkland.
Explore these beautiful and varied spaces- from the manicured gardens of Regent’s Park and Kensington Gardens, to the wild and untamed open spaces of Richmond Park and Hampstead Heath- there is a lot to see.
