Hyde Park is central London’s largest green space. The 1851 Great Exhibition was held here and during World War II, the park became an enormous potato field. Today, the park is a place to stroll and have a lovely picnic, or a nice boat trip on the Serpentine Lake or catch a summer concert or outdoor…

Science Museum
“South Kensington is London’s Museum Mile, and this is at its heart. A Victorian temple to learning, it was built by Alfred Waterhouse and now displays skeletons and fossils alongside temporary exhibitions and expert talks at the Darwin Centre. In the central hall from this summer, Dippy, the much-loved model of a Diplodocus carnegii which was donated by Andrew Carnegie, will be replaced by a 25-meter skeleton of a blue whale found near Wexford in Ireland. A classic museum for rainy days that is often packed with school trips; come close to closing time to a quieter experience. Late night programmes bring the museum alive for adults with silent discos mixed with light learning. ”

Department Store
“If the shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street and One New Change wasn’t quite enough for you, don’t worry, we have London’s most iconic shopping mall up next on the list! While the prices might not be for all pockets entry is free, and I personally always enjoy exploring the food hall of Harrods. The outside of the building is also beautiful and the perfect backdrop for Instagram photos. If you’re visiting under Christmas time they also add loads of lights to the facade, making it an even more Instagrammable shot.”
