With so much to see and do in London, you’d think it crazy to perhaps have just one day to do as much as possible; but sometimes, when time isn’t on our side and we need to get clever, we develop ourselves a plan of action for such circumstances.
Planning will enable you to get the most out of your day in the English capital and to maximise your trip’s potential. As a result, you’ll need to know what you want to do in the day, for dinner and what to do at night if still have the energy to be on your feet.
Getting busy in the day
This is where you need to break your day down into two parts: before lunch and after lunch. Before lunch, you should look to tourist points that are outside and don’t require much time to see, such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge.
The capital’s array of museums should give you enough for your afternoon exploits; with such examples including the National History Museum, the British Museum and the Science Museum. Other options for the afternoon tourist session could also include the Warner Bros studio, Madame Tussauds and the new London Dungeon.
Sitting down for food in the evening
A day for of walking and taking in London’s delights will only make the appetite grow fonder, but the Big Smoke isn’t the easiest place to pick and choose where to eat.
My advice is to think about where you are when you’re hungry and where you want to be for your nightly activities. It may be logical to eat in the location you are after being done with museums or art galleries, then make a move towards the lively end of town to get your dancing shoes on.
Heading into twilight
Locations such as Soho and Islington are known for their vibrant nightlife, with opportunities in both to go for a little karaoke if you’re in the mood for such a fun activity. You can click here for more information on the likes of karaoke in those areas.
After using all your remaining energy belting out some classics in your private karaoke booth, it’s probably safe to say you’ll want to just sit down for a quiet drink if the night is still young, if at least slightly so. Every area has its quiet sector pretty much, so look around for the bars that aren’t kicking out the music at over 85 decibels.
And now, time for bed; you’ve earned it.
