London Sights

A City Tripper’s Wet Dream: London

Whether it’s sightseeing, museums, football matches or a wild night out that floats your boat: London offers the lot. The UK capital remains a pivotal city worldwide for its history, economy, culture and sports. What’s more, London’s the perfect place to knock back a proper pint of beer.

FYI: All of London’s pomp and splendour is impossible to cover in only a few days. The enormously vast city on the banks of the Thames is simply too monstrous. Its population counts over 7.5 million, which is more than any other European city. Nonetheless, London remains a city-tripper’s wet dream, as there is plenty to be seen and done. London’s Underground, ‘The Tube’, is the smartest way of getting about: €15 buys you unlimited travel within its historic centre for one day. Sights like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament and London Eye can be checked of your bucket-list. As well as a casual stroll through nice and cosy neighbourhoods like Camden or Notting Hill.

Cheap Tickets

London lies on a large isle. From Europe, getting there by plane is your best bet. Cheap and easy. Especially when flying with one of the many low-cost carriers. The English capital counts five airports, which leaves an abundance in tickets on offer. The best-known airports are Heathrow and Gatwick. When booked in advance, tickets to and from London go for as little as a few tenners. Compared to other European capitals, hotels in the city centre are relatively pricy. For more economic options, consider lodging in a hostel or at an AirBnB host.

The National Gallery

With museums like The National Gallery the capital has become a true cultural incubator.

Art Lovers

Art-enthusiasts feel right at home in London. With museums like Tate Modern, National Gallery and the Science Museum, the English capital has become a true cultural incubator. On pleasant days, settle in one of the many lush parks like Hyde Park, Holland Park or Hampstead Heath.

Football

London is home to world-famous football squads Chelsea and Arsenal. As well as the oldest tennis tournament in the world played on grass: Wimbledon. Which is played over two weeks, starting in the end of June. For a ‘true English football experience” go see a match in one of the lower leagues. Or, go to the pub to catch a game of rugby or football, whilst indulging on a proper pint of beer and a hearty pub meal. Cheers!
