London: Top 10 Sees

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
London is such an amazing city. Whether you live there or just visit as a tourist, there is so much to do and see. These are my top 10 things to do/see in London.

1. London Eye
I was so scared to go on this as I hate heights, my best friend and I got forced to go on and I have to say it is such a great experience. If you don't like heights, the pods are so big and you're so focused on looking out at the beautiful city that you don't notice the height. I can't wait to go on it again.

2. Madame Tussards
This is really interesting as it is a waxwork museum of celebrities. Some celebrities are very realistic and you can walk up and have photos with all of them. There are also several shows and rides.

3. Buckingham Palace
This is a touristic thing to see. If it was my first time visiting London I would definitely plan a trip here but if you've seen it before I don't find it as exciting.

4. Covent Garden
This is lovely little square with shops. At Christmas at night it is especially pretty. In the dark, the Christmas lights and music is so magical.

5. Hyde Park
During winter, this is lovely. It has "Winter Wonderland" which is a great family place to visit. 

6. Tower of London
Again this is a tourist attraction but it's great for history lovers. I've been and I'm not particularly into history but this was fun. I probably wouldn't go again though.

7. Selfridges
This and Harrods are typically the bags that you'll see people carrying. It is one of my favourite things to do in London because Selfridges has such a wide selection of different products from food to clothing to makeup to stationary.. Everything.

8. Double Decker Red Bus Tour
To see all the sites, the double decker red buses or river tours are perfect. I personally prefer the open top red bus tour and I think that it's a must-do in London.

9. Underground/Taxi
My trip to London isn't complete without having used the Underground or a black taxi!

10. Goodmans Restaurant
As far as places to eat goes, Goodmans does the best steaks. Since it's near the centre of London, it's pricey but it's worth it. I love the meals there.
