In 2014, about 17.4 million people from all over the world visited London, based on figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). And with the rise of more affordable accommodations including London hostels with private rooms such as LHA London, it seems that more and more people are coming to this part of the world for both business and leisure. Here are some of the top reasons why you should visit London this 2017.
You can see where the Queen lives!
Okay, maybe not Cersei or Daenerys from Game of Thrones, but a real modern-day Queen. A visit to London isn’t just complete without a visit to the Buckingham Palace. That would be like visiting New York and not checking out Central Park or the Empire State Building. If you visit the Buckingham Palace in the summer, you can see the nineteen State Rooms in the Palace. Also, don’t miss the famous “Changing of The Guard” which happens daily at exactly 11:30 am. This is quite a popular attraction so make sure you get there before 11:30 am.
You can experience the best theatre scene in the world!
London is insanely famous for its world-renowned musicals, shows, and plays. It has been dubbed as the best theatre scene in the world so make sure you catch a play or two. Better yet, make sure to watch a West End debut when you’re in the city.
You can visit museums for free!
For such an expensive city, you’d be surprised that there are many things you can do for free—including a visit to museums. For instance, you can visit the famous Natural History Museum free of charge. There are also some historic houses, art galleries, and walking tours that are open to the public.
See You in London!
It’s just amazing how many activities you can pack in a day without needing to pay admission to some! So better take advantage!
