24 Hours in London Travel Guide Video Transcript:
London. Like many world capitals, this is a city that never sleeps, and on my most recent visit, I got to experience that firsthand. My challenge was to discover 24 unique experiences in London – one for every hour of the day!
From secret speakeasies to living room concerts, and whimsical afternoon teas to bustling food markets, I scoured the city to bring you the following 24 hours in London! Let’s begin.
I skipped breakfast to visit a coffee shop in Hampstead!
With a bit of caffeine in my system, I continued on to my 9:00 am activity which was walking up Parliament Hill in Hampstead Heath with a great lookout point of the city skyline.
Set in a former power station it is home to the national collection of British art from 1900 to the present.
I got off at Westminster Station and walked over to Horse Guards Parade for my next activity.
If you’re visiting with kids there’s a section inside the museum where you can try on different uniforms.
Cruising down the Thames is a classic way to experience London while hearing interesting London facts that you won’t find in any guidebook.
With hundreds of food stalls selling everything.
What can you do in the middle of the afternoon in London? I made my way over to the West End for a show.
Having afternoon tea at the Sanderson was like stumbling down a rabbit hole and being transported to the world of Alice in Wonderland. Everything from the menu to the teapots to the ‘drink me’ potions was just right!
The RISEGallery has been doing a lot of work to help connect local artists with property owners, and this has resulted in some beautiful murals.
I attended my first Late where museums and art galleries stay open after hours, offering extended admission or putting on special events.
I got to experience Sofar Sounds, which is a pop-up concert that takes place in people’s living rooms. It’s not until 24 hours before the event that you are emailed the address and the names of the artists performing that night.
Then at 11pm, for a bit of live music, it was onwards to The Blues Kitchen in Brixton, where they do barbecue, bourbon, and blues.
Flight Club is a bar that puts a twist on the traditional English pub by adding modern darts into the equation.
With the clock striking one, my next stop transported me to London in the 1940s.
This bar was set in an attic and it had a bit of speakeasy vibe. There mixing all sorts of fun cocktails.
We checked out London’s nightlife scene at 3 am with dance moves at KOKO.
Last but not least, the final activity of my 24 hours in London was breakfast at Duck & Waffle. Located on a 40th floor, this restaurant has amazing views of Central London and they are open 24 hours a day.
And that’s a wrap for my 24 hours in London! I hope you enjoyed following along and that also got a few ideas for your own trip. As you can see, this city has plenty to offer, no matter the time of day. Wishing you happy travels and see you next time!
