What you can do for free
Now comes the interesting part, as a reward for having read this article to the end I'll reveal my secret list with the best tricks, all those places that do not come in the tourist guides but are rather a compendium of counseling inherited from local people who have been recommended to me in the first person. And now I share them with the readers of the blog:
- If you're going to walk in Camden Town and want to see it quietly, try to do it before 10 or 11 in the morning. Then during the day you can continue to enjoy the hustle and bustle and the crowds until about 6 o'clock.
- The Thames, though silent, is an impressive river, strong and flowing. It is very nice to walk on its bridges. Take advantage when you are in the Parliament to cross it, or do it right in the Tower Bridge! The Millennium Bridge is also very nice.
- And if on top of that, it's a drawbridge when you're there, even better.
- Typically, the Greenwich Observatory will allow you to walk along the famous meridian line for approximately 7 pounds.
- Something that is not every tourist knows the ceremony that is celebrated in the Tower of London, from here is another good option.
- This one goes out to Harry Potter fans, the King Cross station keeps a scene from the movie; you can have your picture taken there. And this Harry Potter hotel is perfectly set in your world.
- And if you're a Beatles fan, you'll remember that famous album cover of his Abbey Road, zebra crossing, who does not want to get his picture taken across the street?
- The London Dungeon is a stunning attraction that tells the story of Jack the Ripper or the London fire among others .... Highly recommended for about 16 €!
- The Brixton district is not as famous as Soho, but its Jamaican charm is worth a walk.
- The English gastronomy has some typical dishes - not just fish & chips - I encourage you to try some of them.
- Eating on the street is another interesting activity for a picnic plan you can go to the Borough Market, a very interesting market specializing in dishes, fruits and vegetables.
- Bonus Extra: one of the best views in London is from Primrose Hill, come over one sunset and you will not forget that skyline.
And you, do you know anything else in London that we've forgotten about?
