What To Do Whilst Spending A Short Break In London

There is an endless list of things to do whilst you are in London and there will be plenty of lists which will list everything that you could possibly think of. We at Sugar Fun realise that people often don’t have the time to see all the attractions which are on hand and are looking for an opinion on what things you should definitely see before returning home. We hope the list will be of value to you!

Do a lot at once

When it comes to visiting Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower Bridge, it can often become a bit of a mandatory task which you have to do when visiting London. We aren’t saying don’t see these stuff, as they are very iconic buildings which makes London what it is, although, what we would suggest is not spending your short break making your way around these builds. Do it all in the one day. In most cases, unless you are completely interested in the history of Westminster, we suggest going to the ground and checked out the tower bridge in the one go, then make your way for the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Getting it all done in one will save space for other activities.

Always make time for a park

London has by far some of the most chilled out, yet strangely vibrant parks in the world. I know, how can it be both of these things? Well, even though you’ll see people in parks such as Queen Elisabeth and St. James Park sitting with a book and chilling out, there is also ample space for cultural activities which happen off the cuff – this is a great way to see why London is greatly diverse and unique, with different cultures and backgrounds coming together in harmony.

See the real London

It’s easy to get torn up in the tourist attractions, although, we suggest taking a walk through London’s old town, where there is some of the world’s best architecture on show, old and new. By some of the world’s best-known architects in history and currently. An example of one of the buildings you should be on the lookout for is the Lincoln Square building, which was designed by the Lodha Group, what makes this building interesting is that its surroundings are all hundreds of years older, so it’s interesting to see what the designers done to make the building on stick out like a sore thumb, do you think it was achieved by the shape of the building or the materials which were used to construct the building? Most people have a different opinion, have a look for yourself here:

Go to the museums

London seriously has some of the best museums and art galleries in the world and something that tends to happen in London, and that’s the change in weather. Originally you might have planned on spending a lot of your trip outdoors, but if it’s raining you might be looking for other options. Don’t be too doom and gloom though, as there are many outstanding museums to visit such as the Natural History Museum, the Museum of London, Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and much more.
