Time to Shop
London is certainly not short of fantastic places to shop; however, popular shopping spots such as Oxford Street can get incredibly busy. If you like your shopping experiences to be a little more on the quirky side, then why not head over to Covent Garden. Here you can soak up the atmosphere and browse the boutique shops that call it home. Yes, Covent Garden gets busy too, but it also offers plenty of cafés and restaurants to sit down and have a bite to eat, and there is always something exciting going on to keep you entertained too.
Be A Daredevil
Feeling brave and want to try something a little different? If you are up for a more lively visit to London than heading to the classic spots, then you won’t be short of choice. Just don’t forget to pack the right clothes for your more adventurous trip to the city.
If you have brought your head for heights with you, then head to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Riding the ArcelorMittal Orbit is an experience that you won’t forget. This twisting, turning, tunnel slide is an incredible 178 metres long, so sure to get the adrenaline pumping!

See the Sights Differently
If you have been on the London Eye, ridden a tourist bus around the city, you may be after a different way to discover London. Why not take a trip along the Thames with a difference to get a new perspective from the river? If you are feeling energetic you could try kayaking down the Thames as part of a tour – it’s the perfect combination of sightseeing and exercise!
If you have a need for speed (and kayaking sounds like too much effort) then how about a speedboat tour along the Thames? See the sights rush past on this exhilarating tour of the city.
Time for Dinner and Drinks
No trip to London is complete without rounding it off with a taste of its vibrant nightlife. Why not head to a Canary Wharf Cocktail Bar to taste some delicious creations in a unique ambience? A cocktail or two sounds like the perfect way to end a perfect day of exploring. While you are at Canary Wharf why not make a night of it and check out the restaurants too, you’re sure to find something that takes your fancy.
