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.
Over the past couple of years I’ve shared some of my favourite places in London, an itinerary to see a ton of the highlights in one day, and then some ideas for day trips just outside the city. This month I’d like to give you a little extra burst of London Love with upcoming posts about Hampton Court Palace, a three-day itinerary to really whet your appetite for London, and a whole bunch of fun freebies to help you stay within your travel budget. To kick it all off (and hopefully have you lusting for a trip to London) I’m sharing some of my favourite scenes around the city to give you a little taste of what the London has to offer.
