I have the privilege to live close to the capital city of the UK, London. It’s home to a wonderful range of things to explore and see in London. I have rounded up my top 10 things to do in London from my extensive time testing

Take a stroll around Covent Garden.
Covent Garden has a lot to offer and that is why I love going to it every time I visit London. It is famous for its many street performers that are very talented and great to watch. It has an old market that must be explored. There are two shops you must go to in Covent Garden and they are Neal’s Yard Dairy that is home to bats chess ever> the second one is cyber candy selling a huge range of sweets and chlorate from around the world and mainly American so if you’re from America, this shop is no for you. Neal’s Yard is a tiny hidden square that looks more Californian than British. It is home to lovely independent shops and amazing restaurants in the heart of Covent Garden.

Been to Hyde Park? Try another amazing park The Hill Garden and Pergola.
It is another area of Hampstead Heath to visit. The Pergola is a large Edwardian structure built in the early 20th century: A raised terrace and colonnaded walkway, constructed to connect the two gardens belonging to a house then known as The Hill, Thomas Mawson was the Landscape Architect who, acting on behalf of Lord Leverhulme, designed the Pergola and Hill Gardens. It was an Edwardian vision to create a promenade for summer parties and leisurely strolls that extended into the gardens. The gardens are a great place to wander around any day of the year and it is free to wander around.

Try one of the many Rooftop bars.
As London always builds skyscrapers. With some theses comes a rooftop bar. With the warmer weather slowly returning to the UK. It would be a great idea to go to one of the many rooftop bars. One rooftop bar that used to be a car park is now a rooftop bar and it is situated in Peckham and called Frank’s Café. There are hundreds more of rooftop bars, but they are more expensive.

CATCH A QUIRKY Rooftop Cinemas screening.
Leicester Square you might think is the best place to go to the cinema but they are very pricey. Instead, try one of London’s quirky cinemas. On a nice sunny day why not try out one of London’s many outdoor cinema options. Luna Cinema holds screenings in London Park and the sky Garden. Also looking something more different, try out the Rooftop Film Club that turns the rooftops in east London to a cinema for a night that cost £15 for a single ticket. Head below ground in winter to the vaults under Waterloo Station for the Underground Film Club. You can get some rooftop Cinemas that come with a Jacuzzi cinema.

Explore what little Venice has to offer.
Little Venice, with its beautiful canals and waterways, can be found just to the north of Paddington., This picturesque neighborhood is home to quirky waterside cafes, cozy pubs, and charming restaurants. Regent’s Canal starts for Little Venice and ends in the Docklands. One restaurant I have been in Little Venice is a nice Cafe Laville. They serve great quality Italian food with views of the canal.

Camden Lock Market.
I have been going to Camden for years now and was there before the Camden lock fire happened. It has lots of funky and vintage shops that have to be explored. One of the excellent things about Camden is that there is an extensive urban street art to feast your eyes on. They also have a new rooftop addition that is a beach on a rooftop. The main reason I always go to Camden does this for the street food. Camden Lock has lots of different stalls with amazing food from around the world.

Head over to Brick Lane for Jewish-style bagels.
I have a Jewish family and recommend you trying a jewfish bagel. They’re all kinds of different types. The one I recommend is a salt beef bagel. Go to Beigel Bake bagel shop that’s open at all hours and is a must-eat destination after rolling out of the nightclub. Brick lane is funky shops to go and explore and it is also famous for its curry so don’t forget to try it out.

Ghost bus tour of London.
Why not take an old style London bus with a difference. It is a ghost tour of London. London is filled with Gloomy streets and Bloody history waiting to explore. The cost of a ticket for an adult is £21 and for a student is £15. The ghost bus tour shows you some of London’s murderous events in the discover the dark side of top London attractions such as the Houses of Parliaments and much more.

THE HIDDEN ROOF GARDENS OF KENSINGTON.
After a long day of exploring London’s great spots. Why don’t you try the Kensington roof gardens? It is a great spot to just wind down and relax. It is also a rooftop restaurant that is hosting 1.5 acres of fruit trees, shrubs, lavender and plenty of other greenery. They even have real flamingos, exotic ducks, and stream full of fish. The great thing about it that it is free entry but check when it is free to the public, as they provide lots of private functions.

Go swimming in a pond in Hampstead Heath.
Hampstead Heath is one of London’s biggest parks and one of our personal favorites, and it’s complete with three outdoor swimming ponds that are ideal for those splendid albeit rare warm summer days. There are a mixed band, men’s and women’s pant. The ponds are surrounded by lush England greenery and the Heath also has great views of London. The Men’s and Ladies’ Ponds are open all year round, but to use the Mixed Pond in the winter season you must join the Hampstead Heath Winter Swimming Club. Even in the summer, the water is chilly. The Brilliant thing about it is that it is free to users.
