When it comes to cultural attractions and world-class restaurants, there is no place like London. This UK city offers many recreational activities every night of the year. To help you discover all the interesting things this capital city has to offer, just take a look at our top suggestions.
When you’re visiting the capital city with your family, you will be overwhelmed with the number of free museums that are scattered around town. Some of the many world famous art galleries are located in the centre of the city, where a guide will give you detailed introduction to thousands of paintings on display. A free art tour at the National Gallery is usually available every day, except on public holidays.
Between your museum visits and city tours, don’t forget to stop for an afternoon tea and muffin in one of the many quaint tearooms. There is something to cover every taste where you can truly enjoy the tourist experience.
If you have children, why not pay a visit to the Little Angel Theatre at Islington for an innovative puppetry show that’s bound to appeal to both grown-ups and kids.
Once you’ve explored London, there is also so much to see outside of the capital. Getting out of the city is easy with a British Rail Pass as it gives you unlimited rail travel, so you can explore south east of England with much ease.
Some of the best known places outside of London include Cambridge, Kent, Surrey, Bath, and the popular Brighton. If you have some spare time to explore these towns, start with the historic city of Bath. This town is less than 90 minutes away from the capital city. Explore the Roman spa and its stunning architecture as well as the restored temples that attract up to 4 million visitors a day. Bath has 5 theatres that host popular shows for families.
Another accessible town outside the capital city is Brighton. This is one of UK’s most popular coastal towns. Brighton is well-known for its beach, which is just ten minutes away from the main train station. Along the pier, you can see many top-class restaurants, bars, and cafes. If you’re staying overnight we highly recommend the Hotel du Vin on Ship Street.
Visitors can take a stroll along the pier and enjoy the arcade games while eating the famous British fish and chips. Spend an afternoon at a quirky pub where real ale is served until the very early hours of morning. If you want to experience the lively nightlife of Brighton, it’s best to spend at least two days here. Your trip will certainly be a memorable experience.
