66 Things to do in London


Follow my blog with Bloglovin

One of the greatest things about living in London is the abundance of things to do at any one time. However, with so many options, it can be tricky to decide what things to prioritize or to find the things that best suit your interests.

With this in mind, I’ve compiled a list of all the things I’ve been lucky enough to experience as well as suggestions from those most trusted.

Some are free and simple things I enjoy on a regular basis, and others are activities to be reserved for a special occasion such as a birthday or treat day.

You will find everything from my favourite restaurants; exclusive shopping experiences; parks that make for an amazing Sunday walk and where to find the best hot choc in London (quite a claim but I don’t think you will be disappointed).

I hope you enjoy the list and please leave comments with any new suggestions!
