Happy Saturday, it’s finally the weekend and you may have noticed a little upgrade to the way the blog looks. I hope you like it and honestly, if you are looking for a new blog theme, I cannot recommend Kotryna Bass Designs, enough. I’ve had a long week as I’ve been studying for my TEFL alongside making some plans for the rest of the year with travel (outside of London!), and extra fun things and as this post goes live, I’ll actually be in an exam. I seem to have a few more viewers who have appeared in the last week or two, so if you want to know a bit more about me, have a look at my travel story which I have linked here.


I’m still in the UK at the moment and have been here the since February. This does mean I’ve had a chance to catch up with all sorts of content and also explore a little more of London. Something I love to do in London, is play tourist which brings me on to today’s post.


As London is such a touristy place full of culture and history, it can be a bit overwhelming to know where to go on a visit but here I’ve put together a list of 50 places worth a visit. Be warned, some of them are super touristy but have to be done! There’s a mixture of markets, parks and landmarks and I hope you enjoy!

I loved putting together this post as I spent a lot of time exploring London. I’m heading there this weekend to investigate the best brunch spot, so expect a post on that soon! Read my post about the Museums and Galleries in London for another London blog post.

London is one of those places I never get bored of! If you want to see how I plan my trips and my London Itinerary you can read that post here. I’ve also been working on a Google Map which has over 100 tourist attractions, restaurants and also museums all in one huge map if you want to have a look. It’s part of my Ultimate Guide to London and I’ve added a link to it here!
