What To Do With 48 hours in London

After months and months of hard work, you need a lovely break to unwind from the stress and to enjoy yourself a little.  You could spend the time off just chilling at home not having to move a muscle, or you could get out and do some exploring.  Let’s say you’ve decided to hit England’s capital for a couple of days, you’ve probably got some idea of what to get up to, but you don’t want to head into a place without a good plan.  Let’s look at some of the things you could do while in London.  


There are so many famous structures and hotspots in London that you can check out.  Some are steeped in history that goes back hundreds of years.  People all around the world know some.  You can spend an entire day viewing sights like Buckingham Palace, the Tower Of London, Big Ben and the more modern, London Eye.


If you’re a big sports fan then this will be right up your street, it would even interest you if you didn’t have the faintest clue about them.  You could spend a few hours looking around some of the grandest football stadiums in the world, or have a gander at the more posh cricket grounds.  Wembley, the home of the three lions would be my top pick and definitely somewhere that I’d love to go to with my boyfriend and his son.


You could spend a few hours of your day at a West End theatre watching an award-winning show if you’re open to it.  Having the chance to see some of the best actors in the world performing some of the best plays and musicals in the world is something to consider.  As you’ll know from my many theatre reviews on my blog, most recently, Calendar Girls The Musical at The Sunderland Empire, I love going to see a musical or play.  This year in London, I’ve been to see TINA The Musical at the Aldwych Theatre,  The Woman In Black at the Fortune Theatre and The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime at the Piccadilly Theatre, the latter of which were booked on the day through an App called TodayTix which gets you theatre tickets at a discounted price, I’d HIGHLY recommend it as I’ve bagged some amazing last minute bargains through it.

    Recently we went to Greenwich and there is so much to do there. It was interesting seeing the Meredian line. It’s worth taking a trip up the Shard or the Sky Garden and I like going to a show too
