5 Beautiful Places to Visit in London


London is one the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world, and it's pretty easy to see why. With it's wealth of history and culture, bustling tourist spots and hidden gems, there's just so much to see and do in the city for any kind of traveller. In this post I'm going to share 5 of my favourite places to visit in and around London, to really get the most out of the beautiful city.

Enjoy the Sunset from Waterloo Bridge 
Everyone’s heard the famous Kinks song – but does a Waterloo Sunset still stack up in reality? The answer is of course, yes! If you take a stroll to the middle of the bridge in the evening, you’ll be treated to one of the most iconic views down the Thames. There really is something special about London at night, and this is such a lovely spot to enjoy it.

St Paul's Cathedral
Many of the latest additions to the London skyline epitomise modern splendour, with glass, concrete and steel stretching upwards. But few of these new buildings can come close to the beauty of St Paul’s Cathedral. Whether viewed from the inside or outside, it’s a sight to behold! But if you want enjoy a unique perspective on the surrounding city, make sure you make your way to the top of the building. You won't regret it.

St Pancras Station
If you're passing through King’s Cross, it’s easy to lose sight of just how amazing the station building is. Built mainly from red bricks, and with an enormous clock harkening back to a Victorian era, St Pancras Station is full of the possibilities of industrialisation and adventure. If you’re taking a train to (or out of) the city, make sure to take a moment to soak in your surroundings first!

The London Eye
A trip on the London Eye is a great way to enjoy a special view of the city (so long as the weather is on your side). On a clear day, you’ll be able to see as far as Windsor Castle on the far side of the city. And if you head up at night you’ll be treated to an entirely different spectacle - a must do for sure! London Eye tickets can be secured at discounted rates if you book in advance, so make sure to book before you travel.

Richmond Park
London isn’t just a sprawl of high rises and modernisation, even though it can feel that way sometimes. There are many open green spaces within the city limits, Richmond Park being amongst the best of these. Richmond is the largest Site of Special Scientific Interest in the city, and is packed with deer and green open spaces to explore. During November it’s rutting season, where male deer will be battling one another for the choicest mates. This creates some truly unmissable displays – but just remember you’ll need to keep a safe distance.
