There’s much to discover and enjoy in the United Kingdom’s (UK) magnificent capital. From its excellent parks and the beautiful River Thames, London is home to all the most entrancing museums, entertainment, nightlife, shopping streets and more!
With sunnier days around the corner, it’s time for relaxing vibes all around! There are many fantastic summer activities to experience and enjoy. So, check out a few suggestions below to make a visit unforgettable for the whole family!
1. Speedboat Thames Barrier Experience
See the sights from a different and exciting new perspective as you speed along the River Thames in a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) piloted by a professional. You’ll pass by the Tower of London and under Tower Bridge on this unforgettable experience. Guided commentary and life jackets included! Prepare to be thrilled.
2. Royal Parks
London is blessed with 5,000 acres of quality green spaces across eight London parks. Free to visit and open every day of the year, the parks are for everyone. Get active with a gentle stroll or rent a bike. Connect with nature in some of the capital’s largest open spaces and most valuable habitats for wildlife.
Spend time exploring Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, once Royal hunting grounds. Drop by the Serpentine café and, weather allowing, sit at an outside table by the edge of the artificial Serpentine lake and watch the wildlife swim, waddle or fly by. From there, it’s only a short walk to the Serpentine Gallery, also located in Kensington Gardens, as there’s invariably an excellent exhibition on show. Or wander through Regent’s Park and head north to Primrose Hill to take in the panorama of London from the top.
Afterwards, you can choose to descend and take a stroll eastwards along the Regent’s Canal towpath to the world-famous bohemian Camden Lock market with its street food and inspiring stalls selling everything from candles to clothes. A great place to people-watch in surroundings full of character!
Speaking of markets, head for the incredibly atmospheric Borough Market by London Bridge – one of London’s largest and oldest food markets – mainly selling specialty food and street food. From here, you can head west along the south side of the River Thames to enjoy great views across the river. You’ll pass by the Tate Modern gallery and William Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre on the way.
3. Royal History Museum
London is a treasure trove of history with an unequalled selection of museums. Explore our planet’s past and present wonders at the Natural History Museum, whose favourites include the Dinosaurs gallery, the blue whale life-size model and the state-of-the-art Darwin Centre.
