London is one of the European cities that I’d like to visit in the future. I’ve been to France once and I was really amazed with how different European architecture is compare to what I’m used to seeing in Asia.
I’ve heard though that London can be quite an expensive destination for budget travellers like me. But I’m sure that I could definitely find some affordable options for London accommodation, food and transportation if I do a little research.
There would probably be a thousand and one things to see in London, and amongst those places, these three made it to the top of my list.
Trafalgar Square is a public space and one of the tourist attractions in Central London. The name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, which is the triumph of British over France. Nowadays, Trafalgar is used for huge celebrations such as New Year, Victory in Europe Day, Christmas events, some sports events and sometimes even political demonstrations. It would be one of the perfect places to do some people watching and observe how life goes in Central London.
The London Underground also known as the Tube is considered as the oldest railway network in the world. The first section of The Tube is said to have been opened in 1863. I’m a big fan of train travel and have ridden a variety of trains all over Asia. And it would be such a nice experience to ride and pass through the historic London Underground.
The Tower Bridge would probably be one of the most iconic and most photographed structures in London aside from the Big. The bridge consists of two towers connected to each other by two horizontal walkways. The construction of the Tower Bridge started in 1886 and was officially opened by The Prince of Wales.
These are just some of the places that I would love to see in London. I would also love to visit the museums, art galleries and of course the markets as well, like what I have always done in other places that I’ve been to.
