Enjoy 2 days in London with a Blue Badge Guide!
Is it your first visit to London and you’re looking for things to do? What’s better than getting advice from a professional Blue Badge Guide?
Many people visit London owing to its famous Royal Family. So why not start your day with a visit to the Westminster area, also known as Royal London? Take a picture in front of Buckingham Palace and spot the balcony where the Royal Family makes their public appearances.
Walk through St James Park to Parliament Square and visit Westminster Abbey. It is a must! The Abbey has been the Coronation church since 1066 and it is the location of Kate Middleton’s and Prince William’s marriage in 2011. It is also where the famous scientist Stephen Hawking was buried.
Do you fancy some Fish and Chips for lunch? I suggest Poppies in Soho. You will get the real English experience with retro vibes, not to mention it has the best Fish and Chips in London with Fresh Fish coming straight from Billingsgate Fish Market.
In the afternoon you might want to visit a Museum or Art Gallery. There is a wealth of them to choose from. The National Gallery if you enjoy Paintings. Tate Modern for Modern Art or the British Museum are the most famous of them.
Head to the West End to enjoy a theatre play in the evening. The biggest hit at the Moment is SIX. A musical where the Six Wives Of Henry VIII take to the microphone to Tell Their Tales In an Uplifting Musical. Or go to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, it has such a special atmosphere. A truly unforgettable experience.
Next to The Globe you will find my favourite Restaurant and Bar, The Swan, which boasts stunning views to St Paul’s Cathedral.
It’s time to discover where London began. The City or the Square Mile as we call it. At its heart stands the beautiful St Paul’s Cathedral, built in English Baroque style and its narrow little streets are full of surprises and history. Cross Millennium Bridge for stunning views, and have lunch at Borough Market. You can either try the food sold at the market or there is a Roast restaurant just at the top.
In the Afternoon visit the Tower of London and see the Crown Jewels, learn stories of prisoners and traitors who were beheaded there.
Where to Shop ?
Harrods in Knightsbridge, Liberty on Regent Street, Selfridges on Oxford Street or Fortnum and Mason on Piccadilly.
Where to go for a drink ?
If you want to try a real English pub, check out the Pub chain Nicholson. It takes care of an iconic collection of historical pubs. If you fancy a drink with a view, Sky Garden or the Bar at the Shard is the best.
