Planning a trip to London? Since this is a much older post, check out our perfect weekend in London itinerary.
What to Do in London England in 36 Hours
1. The London Eye (more photos from an earlier post here):
2. Big Ben & the Elizabeth Tower.
I didn’t know until more recently, but Big Ben is just the bell from the clock tower, and the name of the clock tower is actually called Elizabeth Tower.
3. The London Bridge
4. London Underground.
We used the tube to get around everywhere in London. It was so easy to use. I wish we had something like this where we live!
5. Eat Fish and Chips at Gigs Fish & Chips
Some food options we ate here.
We only had 36 Hours to explore London. With a limited amount of time, we had to prioritize photography, food, and friends, so we only ended up going to a handful of tourist attractions. We’re not the type of travelers that like to pack our entire day full of touristy places, so for the most part we met up with friends and hung out. If we had more time to explore the great city of London, here are a few more things I would have loved to check of my list:
- Borough Market (apparently it’s foodie heaven)
- Billingsgate Fish Market
- Pub crawl in Smithfield
- Tower of London
- Kensington Gardens
Do we want to ride the double decker red buses? Perhaps. Ever since Spice World, I was always curious what the experience would be like… We hope to visit London again soon! In the meantime, we’d love to hear more travel suggestions!
