Home to the likes of Big Ben, bright red double decker buses and iconic phone booths, London is undoubtedly one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. Its modern, contemporary, world-class vibe is matched with a subtle old-world charm characteristic of Europe. Read on to find out how to let wanderlust take over on your next trip to London:
With London being one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, every other street reveals a new cultural influence – more often than not in terms of food. From street vendors to the best restaurants in London, your palate is in for a pleasant surprise when visiting the British capital. Check out Borough Market for an unmatched variety of local produce – right from fresh strawberries and whipped cream to exquisite truffles.

2. Explore the city on cycle

3. Discover untouched corners of London
London has witnessed eras go by, transforming a little with every passing influence. It’s no wonder that the city has many popular thoroughfares and tourist attractions that are a must visit. At the same time, there’s also an abundance of hidden corners and unchartered spots that not everyone talks about. Avoid long queues at popular attractions, instead look for pop-ups and drop by as many pubs as you can. In London, pubs are more than just bars – they’re a melting pot of cultural and social exchanges. The most important thing to remember is to ask questions; figure out where the locals go and you’re guaranteed to see a wanderlust stricken side of London that you didn’t know existed.
