St Pauls

From riding the DLR trains to dinner up The Gherkin: there’s a lot more to the wonderful London than meets the eye. Here are just 5 things I’d recommend you do when you next visit!

1. Watch street performers at Covent Garden

…Free, world-class entertainment? Don’t mind if I do. Plus you’ll be right on top of the Royal Opera House, quirky shops and the London Transport Museum.

2. Take a yoga class up The Shard

Because there’s no better place to feel on top of the world (or to get fit, for that matter).

3. Visit Shoreditch

See hipsters in their natural habitat, have a rummage around vintage stores and try out the fabulous (all day) meals and drinks at The Breakfast Club.

4. Go on the Emirates Air Line

Yes it’s slightly terrifying, but it’s a great way to see the O2 from above. Plus a single journey is only £3.40 per adult if you have an Oyster card.

5. Cruise along the Thames

You haven’t seen London until you’ve seen it from the water. Take a sightseeing tour along the Thames to get your bearings, and watch out for sights including The Globe Theatre, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge.
