Fun Things to Do in the City of London

We know the city of London can be a little overwhelming. The huge buildings, the bright and shiny lights, rush hour traffic, and the massive crowds – it's tough to focus with so much going on and so much to choose from.

Well, you're in good hands because we are here to guide you through the best things to do in London!

Pasta Remoli

Unleash the chef inside you by joining these brilliant masterclasses from Pasta Remoli. Happening at the restaurant in Ealing Broadway, these classes will teach you how to make all types of different pasta the conventional way!

Borough Market

Dating back to the 13th century, the city of London's oldest food market is a heaven of gourmet goodies – your go-to for artisanal finds.

You will find street-food vendors and global traders at Borough Market. This means you can enjoy Ethiopian stews and scotch eggs, French confit-duck sandwiches, and a lot more!

Treasure Hunt Around London

This outdoor treasure hunt is an excellent way to have fun in London. It's a great activity for adventurers everywhere. Perfect for families, friends, couples, and even corporate teams.

HiddenCity creates interactive treasure-hunt-style experiences all over the city.

Solve the clues you receive on your phone as you venture into the unknown, talking to the people you meet, interacting with physical puzzles you encounter, and completing challenges set by the characters in the story.

Changing of the Guard

We believe everyone needs to visit London and see the Changing of the Guard ceremony at least once in their life. It doesn't matter if you live in London or if you are only in the city for a few days, this is one of the best attractions that the city of London has to offer.

The Changing of the Guard is the procession that happens when the Queen's Guard finish their guard watch and hand it over to the new guard. The entire ceremony is complete with marching, brass bands, and rich in tradition.

The good thing is you can view the ceremony from a number of places. However, we suggest Buckingham Palace as its one of the best locations.

Ghost Bus Tour

The Ghost Bus Tour is brutish, bloody, and packed with the tortured souls of the dead. You will be taken around in a Routemaster bus from the 1960s while two funny and a little spooky guides share some weird trivia and background of the city of London.  

The tour happens every day after sunset. It generally takes almost 60 to 90 minutes. The meeting point is 8 Northumberland Ave, Westminster, next to Charing Cross Underground Station.

Thames Tour

The Thames is a key part of London. It's the longest river in England, leading right into the North Sea. The Thames River has served as the base for settlements since ancient times and was of strategic importance to the English Kings and Romans, as well as during World War I and World War II.

There are plenty of companies in the city of London offering cruises across the river. Cruises run as frequently as every half an hour from multiple locations. They pass various sightseeing locations, such as the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and the Tower Bridge.

Certain cruises also go at night, allowing you to see all the sights lit up. Travelling along the Thames is surely a unique and lovely way to tour the city of London!

Engraving Products

Another exciting thing to do in the city of London is to learn how to engrave products. My Little Panda offers engraving classes to teach you how to engrave bamboo products. You can visit their office in London and do your own engraving. The best thing is that you only have to pay for the product itself and not pay for the engraving classes! Plus, you will also get a certificate. Just remember to book the visit via My Little Panda's website.

The engraving classes are suitable for adults and children above the age of 5.
