50 Things to do in London Travel Guide | Top Attractions London City Guide Transcript:

So Hello from London! Time for a new destination. This is a city that I haven’t visited in almost 4 years. So we’re both very excited to be in London. And we’re going to be making a little video guide. Actually a really big video guide because we plan on showing you 50 different things to do around London.

Our first stop was Trafalgar Square. This square leads to a lot of central attractions, so it’s a nice place to people watch, get your bearings, and plan out where you want to go in the city.

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the Thames. It offers a bird’s eye view of the city.

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence for Britain’s sovereigns since 1837. The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open to visitors every year.

The Palace of Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament, is the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The Palace along with Big Ben are two of the top London attractions that dot the city-scape.

The Tower of London sits on the north bank of the River Thames.

And that’s a wrap for London! Like with any mega city, it’s impossible to cover all the sights and attractions you can enjoy here, but hopefully this video will give you an idea of what London has to offer.

This is part of our Travel in England series showcasing English culture, English foods, English cuisine and English people.

Doglover says:

That sausage was burnt you should have sent it back

UR3ANFISH says:

When you was at St. Paul’s you should have visited the old Bailey and St brides church. St brides church was created by Christopher wren, the same man who created St. Paul’s, it has a Roman crypt at the bottom. They’re all close to one another.

RaiderfaninNM1 says:

Actually London Bridge is now located in Lake Havasu City…..;)

Also why does everyone forget to mention Stonehenge, I understand is it is out of London but well worth the short bus trip, they have “express” trips, get you to and back well within one afternoon and is a GREAT way to see the historical monument!

GREAT video!

Joseph Espinosa says:

London Bridge is not “a little bit ugly”. This bridge was built with full of history.

Christina Ceuppens says:

Going to London on Monday and have a few questions for you.

Alan Fisher says:

You missed one of the most iconic buildings in London, the MI6 Building at Vauxhall Cross. No visit to London is complete without seeing it. Its a really unusual and beautiful building.

Ajay Joseph says:

I’m going in June, and I can’t wait!

WolfGratz says:

Enjoyable but….. the breakfast. Only one egg? A solitary sausage? No fried mushrooms? No black pudding? Actually I always pass the pudding on to be fair. And I’m not into beans at breakfast. But even so – a mite short there.

Martin Kent says:

Lovely, stunning freewheeling capital city. Let’s have a robust and vigorous attitude, towards public safety in London and end the current freewheeling capital city, phenomenon. Youth in England deserve better, from their civil servants. Did you know, that many of the parents in London ignore traffic laws, with their children and that many of these parents are civil servants? What do you think?

Amy F says:

13:00 they call it english cream tea. It’s the tea, scones and clotted cream.

Ricardo Aveline says:

Great video, guys! To contribute I would add a walk on Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street and Oxford Street at night, a Hyde Park bike riding and lunch in China Town.

Sabine Heier says:

Thanks for the awesome trip, Audrey and Sam! We’ve learned a lot. If you’d like to improve the German subtitles, please contact me.

London is the best, my 20th time this summer, climbed to the Stone Gallery in St Pauls few months ago, saw the city from top of Shard, always leave a card to Freddie Mercury’s house, Earls Court tube, short walk to Logans Pl. Tea at the Orangerie Kensington Palace gardens, fish&chips at the Swan on Bayswater rd. No time is enough to see the abfab city.

It’s not bacon it’s rashers

Tobías Brizuela says:

Going to London soon. I will definitely try the English breakfast. It looks tasty. How much did u pay for it?

Timothy Raths says:

Did you guys see the MI6 Building from the Bond movies?

Don Fink says:

Something that I’ve never seen mentioned in any of these videos and one many Londoners fail to do when visiting Tower bridge. Stop for just a few seconds as you get to the middle, stand with one foot on each side of the divide and feel the two 1,000 ton bascule’s react as the traffic passes from one to the other. Buses and trucks having the greatest effect of course. I vividly recall the wonder I felt the first time I had the experience myself when I was about five years-old. I’m seventy-year-old now, but I still enjoy the sensation when I’m back in the city. By the way Tower Bridge was was my father (Born 1910) childhood playground and he introduced me the the game.

Ian th3_r0ck3r says:

Number 51: stop fucking about with our Guards and age-old ceremonies; armed officers and staff are in the crowds these days. Be respectful and don’t push your luck.

Traveller - Flight Reviews & Travel Videos says:

Thanks for this video, the High Tea at Camden Market looks awesome, thanks for the tip – we will be trying it on our future visit to London! Keep the videos coming! Best Regards Maxi and Maro – Copenhagen, Denmark

Valerie Kudina says:

Just curious, what this expression could mean – To get your bearings ( when talking about the Trafalgar Square) .
It is a wonderful video and I will show it to my students. I teach English language and I would appreciate if anybody could explain what this expression means – to get your bearings…
I can only guess)

Clement Ng says:

How far are blenheim, salisbury, windsor, obviously for palace, cathedral and castle respectively, trains, prices, admission?

Chris Ken says:

thing to do nr 51 in London (UK) —-> avoid terrorist attacks

M. H. says:

Lol opera music in the background “but we’re actually having Shake Shack for lunch” cracked me up

Marek Wielgos says:

Super Movie !

bgbreakdown says:

Do NOT go to see the changing of the guard. So crowded and nothing really to see. Soldiers on horses… blah.

WolfGratz says:

And a bonus for the shout to the National Portrait Gallery, Most videos forget to add that it’s short of the tradesman’s entrance round the corner from the National. Also for that rare breed, opera lovers, English National Opera (ENO) is over the road at the Coliseum (aka the Colli).

patrizia bedini says:

Great Video! Thanks!

Rodney Arthur says:

Which restaurant did you get the English breakfast in? Seems pretty cheap.

Georgina Cox says:

I have to get through London to where I was born.Surrey.first language English
