You Can’t Leave London Without Experiencing These!


Whether you are a local or a tourist, London never ceases to amaze. This ancient city is the right blend of history and all things modern. It is constantly buzzing with life and attracts a large number of tourists from all over the world, standing true to its reputation of being one of the most famous places in the world. Whether you have just arrived for a week’s stay or have spent most of your life in London, this city has so much to offer, that we are pretty sure there is always something left on the bucket list. So, if you are done exploring the touristy London eye or shopping at Hamley’s and want to get a slice of history in places other than the museums and London tower, here are some great places to start:

London Roman Wall: This wall was built almost all around the city but stopped being maintained post 18th century. the most famous part is near the London tower. You can get glimpses of it if you can eye out for it around the city or follow location pins.

St Bartholomew the Great: This beautiful and ornate church is one of my personal favourites out of the many in London. It is located right off the Barbican station and thus is easy to locate. The best part is that you can take your time to explore all its beauty, because it is not frequented by many tourists.

Guildhall Yard – Roman Amphitheatre: This beautiful structure was built back in the 2nd century BC but was only discovered in 1988. It is found under the Guildhall Yard. All you can see above the surface is an outline of a circle. If you want to experience it fully, we recommend going underground into the parts that have been excavated. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that you cannot miss while in London.

Shakespeare’s Globe: this outdoor theatre is located on the South Bank, so you can enjoy a show while experiencing the beautiful London weather. You can even take a walking tour to understand the history of the building. Either way, it is a novel experience for all the culture and history buffs out there.

Nunhead Cemetery: If you are looking to adding an edgy twist to your London stay, you must a cemetery. This is one of the least visited ones, making it that much spookier. Drop in if you are a sucker for these things or just want to know about a different part of London’s history.
We hope you have added these places to your itinerary for your next London trip, or are heading there right away!
