London is one of the busiest cities in the world. All year the city has some exciting events for local and travelers alike. However, during the summer the city comes even more to life. You can easily find something to do every night of the week. I always check the Heathrow Express before I visit the city and If you are visiting London this summer, or if you are a local wondering how to spend the rest of your summer in this summer, here are a few things that you won’t want to miss.
Alice in Wonderland.
If you are a fan you’ve probably have read the book and seen the movie, but this outdoor play (running July 30 -31) near Convent Garden will be a total new experience and something you won’t want to miss. Not only can you see the open air play, but you will also be able to drink tea with the mad hatter, and other Alice in Wonderland activities.
Personally, I think London has some of the best museums in the world. You can visit the British Museum where you can see such treasure as the Rosetta Stone, and where you can also view antiquities from all over the world. London also has many other museums that hold some rare treasures from all over the world.
Ok, so maybe museums aren’t you thing. Then you might want to check out the London Design Festival. This is as massive undertaking that will host more than 300 events through city showcasing artist designs that will be a treat.
Catch a play at the Globe
Every time I’m in London I try to catch a play at the Globe. Here, some of the Shakespeare most famous plays come to life. You will watch the plays in the same type of setting that there were in original performed, and for a few hours you feel as if you have taken a step back in time.
Go Shopping in Camden
Camden is one of my favorite areas to wonder around in London. You have a ton of extraordinary shops and markets to explore. You can find anything in Camden whether you are looking for clothes, novelty items, or delicious food.
London is an extremely diverse place. It is one of the major hubs of the world, which makes it a lively city that is great to explore. It is one my favorite cities that I always look forward visiting and a perfect place for Backpackers.
