Finding things to do in London can be overwhelming – it’s fair to say you’re spoilt for choice. Here’s a neat little itinerary we tried out recently – perfect if you just have one day in the capital.
We had the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup (of course), and they didn’t disappoint. Plus, it’s just around the corner from…
You can’t beat Covent Garden for shopping. I always love paying a visit to the Kikki K store – a separate post on what I bought is coming up!
There are so many lovely shops, and lots of ones we don’t have in Nottingham, so it’s always fun to have a browse.
Museum of London
This museum wasn’t really on my radar, but having done all of the big hitters we thought we’d give it a go. It’s free (although we made a donation, gotta support these things!) and well worth a visit.
As you might imagine, it charts London through the ages. It goes from the first settlements in the Thames Valley right through to the present day.
London’s history is in many ways the country’s history – or urban Britain, anyway. It takes in invasions and settlements, plague, fire, reform, war, suffrage…just about everything. The museum was really interesting and I definitely learnt a thing or two I didn’t know about London.
There’s a branch just down the road from King’s Cross, so it’s great to head to straight from or just before a train.
One day in London = done!
