Recently, I took a trip to London and it reminded me of all the great places I've been to there! So, I wanted to share my top 5 places with you, in case you ever decide to come to the 'City'!
1. Imperial War Museum
For all you history-lovers out there, this Lamberth North based museum is perfect! Completed with full details on all the major wars (World War 1, World War 2, the Boer War etc.). The information is presented in a great way too, with games, diaries, trench replicas and mini films as well as the usual way of presenting, which makes exploring the Imperial War Museum a very interesting (and emotional) trip! And, the museum offers free admission to all, so why not check out this place?
2. London Eye
One of the most famous tourist attractions ever, you can't visit London and not take a ride on the London Eye. This huge wheel (with a 424m circumference) has an amazing view over London - in fact you can see over 25 miles away from the Eye at the top! It's in a great location too, not far from some of the City's other famous landmarks!
3. Spitalfield's Market
Now going over to the Eastern side of London, we find the cool, hipster Spitalfield's Market. Yes, you guessed it, this is a market (the name should have explained that) selling pretty much anything, from food to jewellery, souvenirs to some very funky scarves (yup, I did buy one)! Here there's something for everyone, a win-win for all!
4. Discover: Children's Story Centre
Heading East, you can take a trip to Discover: Children's Story Centre, a place dedicated to kids' reading. With regular events, book signings, talks and activities, anyone who loves reading (like me) will adore this place! Currently displaying an exhibition on Oliver Jeffers, a picture book author - who although may seem babyish, produces gorgeous and amazing books to read.
5. The Museum Of London
My last pick today is the Museum Of London, which, as the title suggests, is a museum - of London. Beginning way back in the Romans to the 2012 Olympic Games, this museum takes you through a journey of London, covering an era of over 2 millenniums, explaining everything in a fun kid-friendly way. Again a must visit for any history-lovers!
So that's it, my 5 top picks of awesome places to visit in London, let me know if you visit any of them and enjoy!
