Travel Tips: Things to do in London

Take me back to London! This city is one of my favourite places to visit. From Switzerland, it is only a short hop and just perfect to spend a longer weekend. I totally felt in love, after I have been there in summer 2015 for the first time. I go twice a year now (I probably need to pass my “second time” this year though). I was currently in a mood to post another travel diary – let’s turn the time back to 2016! (I am really sorry for the lack of posts… need to catch up). I actually booked the trip because for a concert of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. The year before I went to Paris to see her live on stage and it was awesome! I could not miss this chance and wanted to see her again. My mother joined me and we could enjoy a lovely time with sightseeing, afternoon tea and a fancy concert.

Here is a short list of things, which we usually do while we are in London:

✓ Shopping at Westfield, Primark or Oxford Street
✓ Use the Underground (get a Oyster Card)
✓ Have Breakfast at Garfunkel’s
✓ Have a look at Harrods
✓ Visit Piccadily Circus
✓ Have a walk in the parks: Hyde Park, Kensington Garden, Regent’s Park, Greenwich Park, Victoria Park
✓ See a Musical
✓ Visit the M&M’s World
✓ Have lunch or dinner at Bubba Gump
✓ Shop or eat at the Japan Centre
✓ Buy souvenirs
✓ Have Afternoon Tea
✓ Discover the film locations of Harry Potter (in the city or at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour)
