Are you the kind of tourist who carefully and meticulously plans every aspect of the trip before actually embarking on it? Or are you the kind who dives headfirst into the thick of things without planning and rely more on instinct? If your answer is the latter and you are planning to visit London, England, you might miss out on some top fun things to do in London. London is one of the most vibrant and colorful cities in the world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed at the share magnitude of activities that one can undertake! In this article, I will jot down the top fun things to do in London, for your convenience.
Places to Visit
Madame Tussauds London
Madame Tussauds is a world famous wax museum, specializes in making amazingly life like wax statues of famous people, from around the world. It’s a thrilling experience to come face to face with world renowned celebrities (their wax counterparts at least). I guarantee that when you will finally leave the museum, you’d temporarily have a difficult time telling real people apart from the wax ones. This extravagant and huge tourist attraction is found in central London and is housed in the former London Planetarium building. A family ticket, for the place, would cover 2 adults and 2 children for a price of 15 GBP. Not a very stiff price to pay for such an awesome display!
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel located on banks of River Thames! It is over 450 feet tall ( people scared of heights take warning ) and is one of the top tourist attractions in the entire country. So what is so great about a giant Ferris wheel and why is it among the fun things to do in London? Well for starters, it is the highest public viewing point in the city and gives a clear and unobstructed view of entire London! The view is exhilarating and breathtakingly beautiful. If that does not qualify as a fun thing, then you might marvel at the design of the London Eye itself, which is akin to spoked bicycle wheel. Do not worry it is perfectly safe!
Tour of London atop a double decker bus
Ok, now I will jot down the fun activity you can indulge in while in London. This must be one of the top fun things to do in London, if you can afford to spend 26 GBP per adult. There is nothing more exciting than visiting the famous places riding atop an open, two stories tall, trademark London double decker bus. There are various such tour operators which have different specified routes and provide a hefty number of must visit site tours on the way. The main advantage of such a tour is that you get a guided tour, save on the cab fare and get to visit multiple sites in a single go. The one I availed was even giving away a complimentary River Thames cruise pass!
