A day in London


There is something for everyone in London. If you’re a keen shopper take a trip to Westfield London, one of the largest shopping malls in Europe, for an endless supply of both high end and high street shops. If theatre is your thing, be sure to go to the West End area around Piccadilly Circus and get tickets one of the many fantastic theatre shows on offer.

Buckingham Palace is a must-see when visiting London (if you time it well you may even be able to see the famous changing of the guard!) and maybe walk across Green Park afterwards for some Afternoon Tea at the Ritz.

Visit Trafalgar Square to see Nelsons Column and maybe take a trip into the National Gallery while you’re there to see artwork dating back to the mid-13th century. Go on the London Eye for amazing panoramic views of the entire city but if that’s not your thing, go to the viewing platform at the top of the Shard for more fantastic views of London.
