When you head for a visit to London the usual things spring to mind; Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Big Ben and so on. I am here to tell you that there are so many other things that this great city has to offer, many of which you won’t hear about unless you hear it from the locals.
Lucky enough for you guys reading, I am a local, so I have put together some great things for you to do the next time you’re here in London. Of course, I think you should visit all the well known sights, museums and art galleries, but if you’re looking for something unique and amazing then here’s what you should do.
Rent A Barge
It sounds a bit ambitious, I know, but that’s why it’s awesome. Find a friend to join your group by contacting Flirt Escorts and rent a barge for the afternoon. You can spend your afternoon slowly making your way down Regent’s Canal. You’ll start your journey a little north of Paddington train station, then you’ll meander on down to Camden Lock. It’s a good idea to head to the Stables Market once you reach Camden, because you’ll be well in the mood for a good meal, then make your way to Proud Camden to dance the night away. There are plenty of companies to choose from for your barge, just check out the reviews online before booking. When you tell all your friends who have visited London before about your afternoon they will be truly amazed!
Brunch At A Flower Market
I have done this loads of times, but just typing that again reminds me how cool it is. So head off to Colombia road nice and early, the flower market will open it’s doors at 8am and having a good stroll around there is essential. Then find yourself a table at the Royal Oak, because you’ll want to enjoy a proper English Sunday roast. After you’re full up on Yorkshire puddings why not head back to the market to pick up some flowers, the market traders are always good fun and will assure that you can buy anything for just a fiver! There are plenty of really cool boutiques to be found behind the stalls, so be sure to have a peak.
Why not get out of the big city for a day? Just over an hour away are the famous white cliffs of Dover. I’m sure you’ve seen them in many movies and heard about them for years – they’re well worth a visit. Make your way to Dover Priory train station via Victoria or St Pancras, from there you choose from any number of walks along the coast. They’ve got a great bunch of companies offering walking tours down there, so if you don’t want to go it alone give them a call. It’s a brilliant day out and you’ll get that fresh sea breeze to blow off the cobwebs from the night before.
