5 Things to Do or Avoid in London

Susan shares her 5 hits and misses from a recent trip to London. In her response, she did not provide too much information so this may not explain why or why not something was a hit or a miss but we do our best to describe the outing and what may or may not be positives or negatives of the outing. It sure sounds like a fun trip full of Fiiine Outings!

HIT ? Churchill’s War Rooms

“History was made in Churchill War Rooms – an underground bunker that allowed Britain’s leaders to plot the allied route to victory during the Second World War. Walk the labyrinth of rooms and corridors that stretch below Westminster that sheltered Winston Churchill and his war cabinet from the German bombing raids, and explore the Churchill museum to learn the story of his life and legacy.” – Taken from Churchill War Room Website. You can also find tickets on the website!

HIT ? Parliament

Learn how the British Parliament works as you walk through the corridors of one of the most historic and notable icons of Democracy. Audio tours are available for about 20 Pounds for Adults Saturdays throughout the year and days when Parliament is not in session but make sure to check before you go as there are times when touring is unavailable. Guided tours are available as well subject to the same availability as the Audio tours.

HIT ? Tower Bridge

Take a tour of the Tower Bridge and learn the history of this iconic London landmark. You can also see the Crown Jewels which may be the highlight of the whole experience!

HIT ? Selfridges

Susan enjoyed this store because they had affordable items as opposed to a lot of London shopping which, like other big-city shopping, tends to be quite expensive.

MISS ? Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

This free event consists of the Old Guard changing places with the New Guard. This brilliant display of British pageantry occurs each day at 10:45 AM and the process lasts about 45 minutes. It is a free event so if you want to get a good view you definitely will need to arrive quite early. Susan indicated that she didn’t feel this experience was worth the time so make sure to do your research in order to determine if this is indeed something you want to spend your time on when traveling to London.

Thank you, Susan, for sharing your experience in London! These definitely look like some Fine Outings!
