London is a powerful combination of history, fashion, attractions, and culture that, with the passage of time, becomes more and more attractive. For decades, it has been chosen as a must destination to visit and not unfairly, since it can satisfy the most demanding visitor. Five days are enough to seduce you, make you feel ”international”, and help you enter the culture of diversity. To live it, though, you have to see London like a local traveler rather than a tourist.
Are you ready? London is calling!
- A cup of tea, please
A local traveler in London should necessarily start with a “British tea”. Just outside the Green Park tube (metro station) overlooking Buckingham Palace, you will find a beautiful cafe-kiosk. Thousands of passers-by and tourists are waiting for the time of the changing of the guard. It’s a London attraction worth visiting to understand the British royal style. So you, too, find a good location near the Queen Victoria Memorial to enjoy the ”show.” Yes, it is time for your first story on social media.
- The Big Ben and a cruise to Greenwich
After a short break, it’s time to get lost in Hyde Park. Left and right squirrels fly; the place is fragrant with floral aromas. Crossing the park, you will find yourself in Westminster. You can also have a look at the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben. Finally, you can also drive up to Westminster Pier and buy a boat cruise to Greenwich. Yes, it is worth visiting this strange village in the middle of London by crossing major attractions such as the London Eye and London Bridge.
- The Shakespeare’s Theatre
Wander through the theater hall, see the sets and sit down to enjoy a short performance of the British author’s works. As you leave behind the Shakespeare attraction, you continue your walk. The only way to get to know London, as the locals say, is on foot. Take a photo in front of London City Hall and the Navy ship. Ten minutes before reaching London Bridge you will find the remnants of a medieval church. St Dustan’s church was destroyed in World War II, but the Anglican Church did not accept to have it restored.
- London Bridge, London Tower, and Tower-Castle
Cross the London Bridge and walk up to the London Tower. Remember, it is worth cutting a ticket and touring inside the Tower-Castle. After the tour, gets on the subway and gets off on Bond Street. Walk up to the Mayfair area and have lunch at Wolseley Restaurant. You will be compensated by the taste and space of the shop from the fatigue of the day.
- Hollywood with London perfume
An exciting idea is to start your day with a brunch at Amoret coffee Portobello in Notting Hill. Follow in the footsteps of Julia Robert and Hugh Gran and feel famous. Visit The Bookshop and The Open Market of Portobello and experience the Hollywood atmosphere in the British capital. Walk up to the unknown to tourists, the Chepstow Villas district. You will find a number of shops and boutiques to do your shopping, before you find yourself on Oxford Street. Take a photo in the Elgin Crescent neighborhood with the colored balconies of the houses and try varieties of fresh fruit. In Oxford Street, Bond Street, and Barret Street you can really enjoy shopping.
- Beijing to London
Like New York, London has its own Chinatown. Dine at one of the restaurants in the area. Recommended for the buffet is Chinatown Gate. You will eat one of the best Chinese in the world. Take your walk around the surrounding area and embrace London with a beer at the Dog and Duck pub in Soho.
- Bohemian day in London
Back to black….and yes it is time for Camden Town, the site of the Amy Winehouse. Wander through Camden’s open market, find antiques and old vintages. Camden Town’s fame comes mainly from its markets, nighttime bohemian life, and alternative culture. The goth, the punks, and the hipsters will feel like home here. Camden Locke, on one side of the street with the historic Stables Market, will impress you. On the other side is Camden Lock Village, the newest part of Camden that was redeveloped after a major fire in 2008. Next to the canals, there are many cafes, but if you want something different, you need to try something from the stalls. The options are endless and always vary. Shop boots, jackets, and dresses at amazing prices.
