The must-see places in London
Start your journey around London with a royal stop at the most famous of British palaces: Buckingham Palace. Built in the 18th century, it is the British monarchs’ official residence. Among its most famous occupants were Queen Victoria, King George VI and Elizabeth II. Walk past its iconic metal gates, take a picture next to the most serious Queen’s guards and their famous bearskins. Lastly, attend the Changing of the Guard to see the Queen’s troops parade solemnly!
As the ultimate London symbol, Big Ben has been part of the capital’s landscape since the second half of the 19th century. This majestic clock tower standing next to the Palace of Westminster is more than just a way to know the time. It’s a landmark for Londoners and visitors from all over the world. A World Heritage site, Big Ben is present in many literary and cinematographic works. Who knows, you might see Peter Pan and the Darling children standing on the minute hand there?
Among London’s other iconic monuments, you can’t miss Tower Bridge. This huge bascule bridge located east of the city straddles the Thames over 800 feet. Its distinctive features are its high-level walkways, its twin towers and blue suspension chains. Tower Bridge is also a ubiquitous pop culture symbol, from James Bond to Peter Pan or Bridget Jones. It’s the perfect place to get a gorgeous view of London, take a selfie or maybe see the majestic bridge opening.

What to do in London? 3 activity ideas
Stroll about in Covent Garden
Covent Garden is a district in London, very popular for its charm and buzzing atmosphere. Head to the Covent Garden Piazza to get a look of the covered market’s gorgeous architecture and go shopping. Walk in the small picturesque roads around Seven Dials and get some lunch at a typical British pub. Feeling musical? Top off your stay with an opera or a ballet at the Royal Opera House!
Discover Camden Town
In contrast to the very neat Covent Garden, Camden Town is the place of all excesses in the British capital. Emblematic district for the punk, rock or even alter-globalisation cultures, Camden Town is a real melting pot of styles and atmospheres. Walk down the colourful Camden High Street, find unlikely gems at Camden Market (and its famous stables) and amble along the charming Regent’s Canal. After all these adventures, you’ve definitely deserved a pint or two in of the area’s underground pubs!
Have afternoon tea at Sketch
As cliché as this may sound, teatime is one of the Brits’ favourite activities. This tradition consists in an elaborate snack eaten with a very serious etiquette. It includes tea, always drunk with a drop of milk and a many sweet delights elegantly arranged on cake stands: scones, muffins, crumpets or finger sandwiches. To taste these delicacies at their finest, head for Sketch, a very hip and pink tea house and restaurant which has been the talk of foodie town for almost two decades now.
