As we all know, London is all tea, crumpets, big clocks and the Queen.
If only that were true, wouldn’t it just be brilliant?
In reality, London’s actually even better.
The capital city of England, London is a major tourist destination in the UK and Europe.
Full if iconic historic scenes such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge London is sure to give you a real sense of culture. You can spend a weekend, a week or a month and find plenty of things to do, sights to see and places to go.
Here are just some of the brilliant things you can do while benefiting from an affordable hotel experience found at www.GoDesto.com
The London Eye
Sitting on the South Bank of the famous River Thames, the London Eye is Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel, standing at 443ft tall.
Going for a spin on the London Eye will take roughly 30 minutes and set you back around £24 for an adult, if you book online or if you’re really living it up, £550 for your own private capsule which can accommodate 3 to 25 people (psst, if you get 25 people together you’re only paying £22 each).
The London Eye will give you only the second highest viewing platform in London, for the first highest you’ll have to take a trip to the Shard.
The tallest building not only in London, but in the entire United Kingdom, The Shard is a neo-futuristic 95-storey skyscraper in Southwark, London.
To get a peek from London’s highest viewing platform, you’ll be spending about £26 for an adult, if you book in advance. The Shard offers up the 68th, 69th and 72nd floor for viewing, with the 72nd floor being an open-air experience and, at 800ft tall, you’ll be able to see 40 miles in every direction, on a clear day.
Buckingham Palace has got to be near the top of any to-do list when visiting London.
The Royal Residence of the current reigning Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace sits in the City of Westminster and draws crowds from around the world to watch the world famous Changing Of the Guard.
You can catch the Changing of the Guard daily at 11AM during summer and on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from January until March.
Just remember, these blokes are full operational soldiers with an active military duty to perform, so try not to get in their way.
You can also go on a tour inside Buckingham Palace’s State Rooms for £23, kids under 5 go free!
