The Best of London: from Locals' Eyes
London is our beloved home, and a great destination for solo female travellers. This week on Instagram, we have introduced some of our favourite places and things to do. They may not be on the regular travel guides, but will give you a different perspective of this great city.
Best views of London
See how the city's planned
Nearby: Karl Marx's Tomb is walking distance, it is a peaceful place to visit.
Great sunset view from the top of the hill.
Nearby: Jewish Museum London
The view from Sky Pod Bar
Great for not just the view, but also drinks, food, and the Sky Garden.
Nearby: Borough Market is just across the river.
The Kyoto Garden at Holland Park
A taste of Japan in London. Autumn's our favourite season to visit.
Nearby: Leighton House Museum - not just great art, but the building itself is an art.
Get lost among the tropical plants right in the middle of the City.
The Glass Walkway of Tower Bridge
Watch the bridge opening from the top is an unique experience.
Nearby: CitizenM Tower of London - not just the regular hotel, but a great place to work and meet people.
Lincoln's Inn Chapel at Temple
Temple is a great area to explore for history and architect fans.
Nearby: Royal Courts of Justice, Sir John Soane's Museum.
And don't miss the Sarastro Restaurant for an unique dining experience in the most beautiful deco.
Bank, especially during weekends
The ultra-busy place slows down and reveals it self during the weekends, great to just walk around and soak it in.
Nearby: Challenge yourself with some puzzles with Escape Entertainment
Bushy Park & Hampton Court
Visit the deer park at dawn or dusk, before or after your visit to Hampton Court. Pack your lunch, it's worth a full day.
Nearby: Kingston upon Thames
Things to do
Stand-up Paddle Boarding in Thames
A different way to enjoy London.
Have a cuppa tea in V&A Cafe
Don't miss the Cafe at Victoria and Albert Museum. If you are lucky, you'll get a live piano performance while having some tea.
Take your time and enjoy! Many places have bottomless brunch, our favorite is Bourne & Hollingsworth in Clerkenwell.
Columbia Road Flower Market
You've got to be in a good mood when surrounded with the flowers.
Our other favorite markets: Old Spitalfields Market, Brixton Market, Borough Market.
London has a lot to offer. It was difficult to narrow the list down to the few. Hope you'll enjoy them.
