The journey is always a way to rest and recharge your new experiences. Each city in the world is interesting in its own way, and even more so, what awesome is waiting for a traveler in the capital of Great Britain. If you arrive to the London earlier than your friends, you can easily check LHR arrivals and find out departure time of necessary flight.
Familiarizing yourself with the most interesting places still worth a start with the classics – the symbol of London, which is often a joke locally called the Big Belltower, and from 2012, it is officially called the Tower of Elizabeth. You will not be able to miss this landmark of London – Big Ben is the main landmark in the city.
London’s attractions like Tower are the oldest building and history of the city, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Square, Big Ben. Though they are always at their hearsay, they are still interesting, and each time they surprise in a new way. But all the same, the capital of Great Britain can offer something more than an inspection of traditional sights.
Unusual London is the Crystal Palace. You might think, well, what’s interesting in a park with dinosaurs: tracks, trees, a zoo? All would be nothing, but in the park, there are fifteen species of these ancient beings of a natural size.
London is rich in museums, but there is one very unusual among them – the Museum of Cartoons. Here are more than 5000 cartoon characters and thousands of comics. Especially the museum is famous for a rather unusual collection of works on the topic of political cartoons. This is very interesting and I highly recommend visiting this place.
I’m a Sherlock Holmes fan, I advise you to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum. This is the most famous address in London, where, according to the author, Sherlock Holmes lived with his friend Dr. Watson – Baker Street, 221b, in the Westminster area.
No less interesting is the Museum of Brands, Packaging, and Advertising – the history of the culture of its consumption from 1800 to today. In this museum are collected more than 10 thousand original items on the basis of the collection of Robert Opie. Here you can learn about how well-known brands achieved recognition through a creative approach to packaging and advertising their products.
Under the ground of London, too, many interesting things – 13 branches and more than 300 metro stations, and instead of escalators – narrow passages and elevators, cozy booths of cars with soft sofas. The first branch of the London Underground opened in the second half of the 19th century, and a tree was used to make the moving staircases at that time. So it is surprising that at the station Greenford and there was a wooden escalator, which works in our time.
At the end of the tour, you can go to Regent’s Canal, which is called the Little Venice, and where travelers are very rarely reached. Or take a stroll in the beautiful gardens of Kensington Palace.
If you still think that London is rain and fog, then you are very mistaken. Of course, the weather sometimes does not spoil guests of the capital, but this city can be forgiven a lot.
