London has quickly become one of our favourite places for a UK break with so much to do for all ages it's a hit with all the family.
I have been going to London for many years and every time I seem to go I always discover something new. Whether it is a trip to the museums, the shopping or the west end there is always something to do so here are a few of my favourite places and things to do in London.
First place I would recommend is Camden Market, I feel like the best way to describe Camden is a treasure trove of all things quirky, weird and colourful. You can find anything you could desire at Camden Market and a few things you didn't even know you needed. One thing to note is the food! You can find something for everyone and if you are vegetarian, vegan or just want to try something new there is something for you. Would recommend a full day of exploring for this pit stop as you never know what you might stumble on.
Another place to note is the London Zoo, this is a new find but was loved by all the family. I was skeptical with the zoo as all zoos in the UK seem to be the same but the interactive nature of London Zoo makes it stand out from the rest. We visited the Zoo with my 10 year old niece as a birthday treat and it was a big success. We thought we would use the canal entrance and treated her to a canal boat trip that let us enter a more quieter entrance and bypass all the ques it was different and a big hit. The best attractions was the jungle house that had monkeys and sloths hanging just a mere centimeters above your head and the tiger enclosure that gave you a birds eye view of the tigers. It was a great way to spend the day when the weather wasn't quite so cooperative.
The next must do in London is an obvious one West End!! There is something different about a west end show that just makes the trip seem so much more magical. Over the years I have had the opportunity to see a few west end shows by far my favourite is the popular Wicked. There are so many shows to choose from and sometimes the best ones are that are not so well known. One of the best shows I had the chance to see was 42nd Street and this was an accidental find we just happened to pick a more affordable ticket and decided to chance it. It's the best for all the family and there is something for everyone!
London has loads to offer and I know there is so much more to experience but these are just a few of my top places to visit. Honestly I find the best places are those that are stumbled upon so my advice would be forget the map and itinerary and just explore!
