This city is huge, and there’s so much to do. Even after you’ve hit all the big tourist sights (Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Tower of London), it seems there’s always more gems to be discovered.
1. Buckingham Palace is a must see for its royal significance, but changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace is a festivity in itself. (The marching band is also prone to playing Disney music to entertain the tourists while the guards change shifts prior to marching out from behind the gates, when this happens, don’t be caught off guard, just go with it!)
2. If you have time, I also recommend touring Shakespeare’s Globe and imagining just how this playhouse would’ve looked in its original state prior to the 1613 fire. (too bad theatre season doesn’t start until mid-April or I could also be watching Shakespeare @ the Globe Theatre!)
3. Cruising around London @ night is always a treat. No matter where you are in the city, the bars are always packed with well-dressed men and women, chatting the night away with a pint of London Pride.
