The great British writer Samuel Johnson once said that he who tires of London tires of life. Although the city has left me exhausted on some occasions, from our days out walking it, I have yet to tire of exploring it. Without a doubt, London is one of the best cities in which to experience a mix of culture, history, energy, and great architecture. On my first visit I wouldn’t have said these same things though.
So what changed? Well I think it was getting to know London a little better. Learning about its history so I knew that neat looking old building was the Tower of London that’s 1,000 years old! Realizing that yes, London can be expensive (which is a bit of a deterrent no doubt) but it really doesn’t have to be as there are oodles of things to see for free, and with a little bit of research things that you don’t have to pay full price for. I just had to take a bit of time to learn these things and my love for London has only grown since then.
There we are, just a little taste of London to hopefully get you dreaming of a new place to visit…. or revisit if you’ve already been there. There is so much to do in London I think it would take years to see it all. But it sure would be fun to try eh?
Have you been to London? If so, what are your favourite scenes? If not, what’s the first thing you want to see when you get there?
