Real London Calling

There are many things to do in the vast city of London. Sadly most are missed because people waste their time with non-events like Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street. Here are a few ideas for you to try on your next trip to our great capitol.

Royal Botanic Gardens, TW9 3AB

Learn of the incredibly varied life of George III and his inevitable mental health issues. Explore the historic kitchens, unaltered since Queen Charlotte’s demise in 1818. History not your thing? Then have a fun, relaxing day wondering round the beautiful and well kept grounds. A dream activity for a sunny day, away from the noise and car pollution. This popular wedding venue is perfect for a romantic, hand held walk.

The London Bridge Experience and London Tombs
2-4 Tooley Street, SE1 2SY

Experience 2000 years of London’s dark history. This live action show brings the macabre surroundings to life. You will come face to face with the Whitechapel Ripper, escape the devastating Great Fire and emerge through the sickening Hells Portal.

The tombs dispense with the history lesson and ramps up the horror. The live actors return but as twisted nightmares and gory monsters. Guardian Angel tours are available for the younger thrill seeker, but are probably better for a more mature crowd – book now!

The Sportsman Casino.
Old Quebec Street, W1H 7AF

All the old favourites are here; blackjack, poker, roulette and slot machines. Win big on your night out and pay for dinner while you’re at it. This charming and relaxing gaming hall has a friendly atmosphere and no strict membership policy. Come for a fun night out of gambling and enjoy the downstairs Sports Bar. They offer beginners lessons on a Sunday morning but if you are only in London for the weekend it may be just as easy to practice on a top online casino.

The Fourth Plinth.
Trafalgar Square, WC2N 5DN

Every tourist finds themselves wondering around Trafalgar Square, being bothered by pigeons and wondering what they are meant to be looking at. Most miss the true cultural wonder that is the fourth Plinth. The Plinth was built as a stage for an equestrian statue of William IV, but sat unused for 150 years. In 1999 the plinth was used for many temporary art projects that proved so popular The Plinth was re-tasked to display art permanently. The Plinth currently has giant blue Cockerel entitled “Cock” and will display a skeletal horse in Summer 2015.

  1. We would also add The Cider Tap and all the breweries in the city! A great way to guide a walking tour of downtown.

    1. What a brilliant suggestion! There used to be a London Pride brewery somewhere in London – I must go and see if its still open!

  2. Wow! I have never heard of any of those places! Great recommendations they really do sound good!

    1. Yes, I agree – they are a little different in terms of London sightseeing. They would suit those who are looking for something more unique.
