Stuff todo London Reviews
Jun 11, 2007
Alot of great ideas already here, but here are a couple more.
Camden Town market is a wonderful an vibrant place to visit, almost anything is for sale, food is cheap and you can meet just about anyone from anywhere in this market. Start a Camden town station on the Northern Line (Check weekends for service diruptions when busses may be easier) That starts you at the begining of market I suggest leaving the market at the other end and walk toward chalk farm once you have all your bags, its a quieter station and if youre going back central london you're more likely to get a seat.
Near this market is hampstead heath. A large and lovely park if you want a walk or a picnic, its high up so you can often get views that look out over the city.
Most of our sites and monuments are seen from outside, Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace etc, the Open Top Bus Sightseeing tours are actually great value, as you can get on and off as you wish. There are brochures for this all over the city and you will certainly see the busses about. Make sure the weather is good though.
My final suggestion, The London Eye does cost around 20quid, but it well worth it for the views. Check google for the website and possibly book a ticket, this saves time in the queue, which is long at this time of year.
I hope all that helps!!!
