A Day Out in London to Remember

A Day Out in London to Remember

Posted by Eyes of Lady Wimbledon | 26 September 2023 | Arts & Culture

London is a city whose appeal is difficult to understate. Tourists flock from across the planet to get a glimpse of the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and Westminster Abbey. But if you’d like a memorable day out in the city, then you’ll want to look beyond these main attractions.

You can get into Victoria, near Westminster, via train, and access the centre directly. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the components of a truly memorable day out in London.

London Markets

For those looking for some boutique retail therapy, there are dozens of regular markets to check out – and several not-so-regular ones, too. Old Spitalfields offers antiques and classic vinyl; Camden is a must for vintage clothes and street food; Portobello Road is all about antiques, shoes and second-hand clothes; and Jubilee is a haven for arts and crafts aficionados.

Walking the Parks

There are countless fantastic parks in the capital, and so if you’d like to take the chance to stretch your legs, you’ll have a chance to do it. Hyde Park is arguably the most famous, and is usually much busier than Richmond, which is the largest urban parkland on the continent. For those with a passion for botany, however, a trip to Kew Gardens is difficult to overlook.

Check out Galleries and Street Art

When it comes to art, visitors to London have plenty of options to weigh. There’s the Saatchi gallery, which is hosting a winter program that runs right up to 9 p.m. Then there’s the National Gallery, with its regular lectures and talks, and occasional musical performances.

Some of the best art in the city, however, is to be found not in a gallery, but on the street. Take a stroll through Shoreditch, and you’ll come across countless masterly examples.

Discovering the history of London

London is naturally packed with history. To explore it, you can either pay a visit to a museum, like the London Dungeon, or the Tower of London. Then there are walking tours which will help acquaint you with the history you’re walking past. The Jack the Ripper walking tour is particularly popular.

Check out some of London’s top attractions

Of course, we can’t pass up mention of some of the capital’s flagship attractions. There’s the London Eye, which will carry you above the rooftops, and the famous clock tower in the Palace of Westminster, where Big Ben resides. Seeing it all will require a protracted stay. So, you’ll have to be selective, and put together a tight itinerary.
