I’ve been to our capital city hundreds of times and I have done a lot of touristy things, however there’s still so much that I want to do. It’s been a while since I’ve had a whole weekend in London, so I’d like to arrange a little break and head down there to cross a few things off my list. Of course, I will probably spend a few hours in the British Museum and head over to Covent Garden too.
Visit Madame Tussauds
I feel like I’m one of the only people to have visited London and not been to Madame Tussauds to get my photo taken with some wax celebrities. I’ve always thought it’s been too expensive when I’ve been down there but there are plenty of places to get discount attraction tickets from. Where else can you go and get your photo taken with the Queen, Vincent Van Gogh and One Direction all in one day?
Go up the Shard
Although I probably can’t afford a drink in the bar at the top of London’s tallest building, it would be nice to go up to the 72nd floor and have a look at the view over the city.
Visit the Warner Bros Studio Tour
You may be surprised to hear that as a massive Harry Potter fan, I actually haven’t visited the studio tour! I’m dying to go and I want to finally book tickets for this winter when it’s all Christmassy. It’s situated just outside of London, in Watford but it’s easy enough to get to from Euston and it’s on the train line that I get into London too.
Visit London Zoo
Surprisingly, I have never visited London Zoo either. The winter may not be the best time to go, however when it starts to get a little warmer next spring, I’m going to make sure I go! I’ve heard that it’s great for a day out and I love seeing animals, so it would be a perfect activity.
Have a look around the Wellcome Collection
I have actually been to this museum, however I turned up half an hour before it was due to close so I didn’t get a chance to have a proper look around. I would love to spend a few hours having a look at all of the different exhibitions, including the new one on mental health and asylums called Bedlam: the asylum and beyond.
