Take a guided tour
There’s no better way to see the best sights of a new city than with a guided tour. A guided tour will help you understand where everything is, and you’ll also learn about the history of the place. London is a huge city, so most guided tours focus on the centre of the city – which is a great place to start. You can take the tour by bus, boat, or on foot, depending on your preference. For an extra-fun experience, try the amphibious Duck Tour.
Experience the culture
There are so many great museums and galleries in this city, and most of them have an exciting events calendar of interesting talks and exhibitions. The best part about London museums is that most of them are free, so it’s easy to enjoy them on a limited budget. Some of the museums that we’d highly recommend are the National History Museum, the Science Museum, the National Gallery, Tate Modern and Tate Britain.
Walk around one of the city’s many parks
If it’s sunny, you must go to one of London’s many green spaces. It’s a great way to relax and also escape the city vibe. There are several Royal Parks in the centre of the city, as well as some beautiful gardens outside the centre. Make sure you check out Regent’s Park, Hyde Park, Richmond Park and Primrose Hill.
Eat and drink your way around the city
There are hundreds and hundreds of amazing pubs, bars and restaurants in London. One of the best things about choosing to study English in London is the amazing choice of places to eat.
