What's on in London?
A Guide To Planning Your Visit To London.
Plan your visit well in advance, don’t just turn up at an attraction thinking you will not have to wait for hours queuing up. I cannot emphasize enough the need to buy your tickets online before your visit to save you much valuable time on the day of your outing and fast track your way in!
Make sure you have suitable clothing for the right time of year. Try to take some kind of rainwear/umbrella at all times to save getting caught out.
Wear comfortable footwear as you will be walking several miles without realising it with so much to see and do.
Plan a couple of refreshment breaks and if you are taking your own snacks make sure you have mapped out some parks or gardens to enjoy them in.
Make the most of museums as they are mostly free of charge except for some special exhibitions.
While in London be sure to take a rest break and visit a local pub or play
bingo at one of the many bingo halls that dot the city. Bingo games are a
favorite among locals and tourists alike.
