London has some of the most beautiful parks and gardens in the world.

There are plenty of shops around where you can grab some lunch or perhaps, some dessert.

You can visit the spectacular Kew Gardens which host one of the “largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world”. Nearby is the wild Richmond Park where you can stroll in the forest and watch the deers wondering around.

If parks are not for you, perhaps shopping will keep you busy and happy. London is known for its unique markets and Camden is definitely the most popular. There you can find amazing places to eat as well as clothes, jewelry, home accessories and so much more.

There is no better way to explore central London than by going on a Bus Tour. There are many options available, but to choose the best one, read more about the most popular ones here.

The Science Museum and the Natural History Museum are a must visit for anyone who loves science. For art lovers, Victoria and Albert Museum as well as the National Art Galleries are a delight.

To end a day in style all you need is a cocktail with a view. The Shard as well as the Sky Garden have a breathtaking view over London and great food deals for a special night out. Make sure to book at least 2 weeks before your arrival so you don’t miss the chance to enjoy the view!
