City guide : discover London in two days
You only have two days to visit the British capital? You want to do the maximum in a short time? Do not panic, here is a suggestion program with the main attractions of London located on two days !
Day 1: Experiencing London
In the morning we advice you to visit the town center. To start the day, go to Buckingham Palace, near Victoria Coach Station, the main train station in London. You can see the guards at the palace entrance, is a must. Then you can go to east to stroll along the Thames. The Palace of Westminster and Big Ben are there. On the other side, you will not miss the London Eye. A ride on the Ferris wheel can enjoy a magnificent view of the capital !
For the lunch, nearby, the Wahaca is a very friendly Mexican restaurant where you can taste the tortillas, tacos, burritos or salads … The address near the London Eye is the following: The Wahaca Southbank Experiment, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX. In the afternoon, you can head to Trafalgar Square and visit The National Gallery next door. You can then go to St. Paul’s Church on foot (6 minutes). The architecture of this cathedral is beautiful and worth seeing. Still on foot, you can reach Chinatown to discover the famous Asian district of the city and have dinner there. If you still have strength, you can end the day with a pub in Soho.
Day 2: Shopping and Walks
On the morning, you can return to the Piccadilly Circus subway station and back Regent Street, a wide avenue with many chic boutiques from both sides of the road (Zara, Hollister, H & M, Apple Store …) to get to Oxford Street. This great avenue will be appreciated for shoppers since it is THE shopping street in London. Many French take the opportunity to stock up on bargains at Primark, Topshop and Forever 21.
For the lunch, by metro, you can quickly go to Covent Garden, a large covered market very pleasant to visit. Known shops can be found there, stands creators but also restaurants to rest and eat. Then, go up to Hyde Park Corner for a digestive stroll through this huge green space in the city center. If the alternative culture attracts you or you are just curious, take the metro towards Camden Town. The crazy shops open their doors for a dive in the London of the 70s, punk and rock and roll. We are not refusing a gourmet break in Camden Market!
And this is where the day ends. If you still have some time, please stay a little longer in Camden for the evening, many concerts are held in pubs in the neighborhood!
