Holiday Destination: London

SHARE

London has such an amazing vibe and feeling of endless possibility about it.

It’s that time of the year when school’s out and its time to unwind. Pack your bags, we’re taking you to London Town!

 Things to Do in London:

Ride the The London Eye:
Summer is the best time to be in London, if you’re lucky and it isn’t raining, hop on the London Eye and witness London like never before! Soaring 135 metres above River Thames, you’ll see a spectacular view of the city. (Tip: Avoid long queues and book your tickets online!)


Changing the Guard, Buckingham Palace:
The changing of the guard ceremony begins 11:30am daily from May to July and is absolutely one of those things that you must see in London. 


Shopaholics head to Oxford Street!:
If you literally wanna shop till you drop, you absolutely must go to Oxford Street. Malls? No thanks! 


Toy Shopping at Hamley’s (no age restrictions):

Hamley’s is the oldest toy store in the world, founded by William Hamley in 1760. Set over seven floors with toys for every age! You name it, they have it! Forget you’re a grownup! You’re never too old to play with toys!


Visit Regent’s Park:

Regent’s Park is one of the Royal Parks of London. The park holds a wide range of facilities and amenities including gardens, a lake with a heronry, waterfowl and a boating area, sports pitches, and children’s playgrounds. London Zoo is also located in Regent’s Park. 


Check out The Original Madame Tussaud’s @ Baker Street:

Nothing beats the original Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London. Its one of the major tourist attractions of London and it doesn’t matter if you’ve visited before, there’s always more to see and do.


Indulge in some traditional Fish and Chips:

Visiting London and not having fish and chips is like going to the biggest sale in town and coming back empty handed! Make sense?


Desi? Head to South Hall:

If you’re craving some nice Pakistani/ Indian food, head to South Hall. No really! You’ll feel like you’re back home. From Kulfi waala to Nihari waala, you’ll find everything in South Hall.


Shopping at Harrod’s: 

…or window shopping (lol) This is a store you can’t miss, you’ll see Arab families carrying hotel trolleys stuffed with all the designer goods. You might even feel a little crappy, but you’ll enjoy browsing through followed by eating a scrumptious meal at one of the cafés.
