50 Things to do in London Travel Guide | Top Attractions London City Guide Transcript:
So Hello from London! Time for a new destination. This is a city that I haven’t visited in almost 4 years. So we’re both very excited to be in London. And we’re going to be making a little video guide. Actually a really big video guide because we plan on showing you 50 different things to do around London.
Our first stop was Trafalgar Square. This square leads to a lot of central attractions, so it’s a nice place to people watch, get your bearings, and plan out where you want to go in the city.
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the Thames. It offers a bird’s eye view of the city.
Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence for Britain’s sovereigns since 1837. The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open to visitors every year.
The Palace of Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament, is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The Palace along with Big Ben are two of the top London attractions that dot the city-scape.
The Tower of London sits on the north bank of the River Thames.
And that’s a wrap for London! Like with any mega city, it’s impossible to cover all the sights and attractions you can enjoy here, but hopefully this video will give you an idea of what London has to offer.
This is part of our Travel in England series showcasing English culture, English foods, English cuisine and English people.
