Different Places to Visit in London
When visiting London as a tourist there are plenty of famous attractions to keep you entertained? The most famous ones of course are London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Natural History Museum and the Tower of London to name a few. So here is a guide to some of the more obscure places to visit which are free.
If you’re hitting the famous shopping areas like Covent Garden, it would be well worth a visit to look on your map for a road called Neal’s Yard. It's a multicoloured corner with holistic and organic shops. It really is a special place and doesn’t feel like you’re in London.
The South Bank Centre is rarely mentioned in London guides. Here you will find plenty of regular free events exhibitions and performances. With Christmas just around the corner there will be plenty of seasonally events on including food and general markets. There is always plenty of art music, dance and family events so something for everyone.
Now this might not sound like a great place to visit but Highgate Cemetery is a really cool and interesting place to visit. This is the resting place of many famous and influential Victorians, including Karl Marx and Mary Anne Evans. There are some really cool statues and vaults to look at.
Another place which never gets a mention is one of the lesser known Royal Parks. Bushy Park is located north of Hampton Court Palace and is absolutely huge with over 1099 acres. The park is full of wildlife including herds of both Red Deer and Fallow Deer. So keep your wits about you as they hide themselves quite well and then suddenly appear.
If you are fascinated with the history of Jack the ripper, you can go on a free tour of all the places this notorious killer committed his acts of crime. There are also many other film location tours where you can go on tours which show you the locations used for some of the Harry Potter films. Of course Notting hill is part of London which is a great place to visit.
Finally food. There are hundreds of places to eat but here are a few that stand out. Technology geeks will love Inamo in London’s Soho. You order your food through an interactive ordering system which also doubles as your table. While waiting for courses you can play games, check the neighbourhood or even order a taxi. Perhaps you don’t like the colour of your tablecloth. Well here you can just change it. The Pan-Asian food is promised to be with you in 15 minutes.
