One of the best ways of exploring here is to book the family on one of the day tours that operate in London. Moving to London will mean that you are busy organising a myriad of details, and what you need to do is make time to really get out and explore the city that is now your home. Just as soon as you are settled into your rental home, you need to spend a few days acting like a tourist and seeing a bit of the fascinating city of London. Day tours give you an overview of the city while giving you the opportunity to see some of the most famous tourist attractions.
Top Day Tours in London
- Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Walk: If you are interested in Royalty and the Princess who captured the hearts of millions around the world then this is a fabulous way of seeing the city on foot as well as learning more about the life of one of the most famous Royals. This is a seven mile walk so you should wear comfortable trainers or walking shoes. It talks you through Kensington Palace, St. James Park and Hyde Park as well as number of places that were closely associated with the Princess. Its perfect walk to do on a spring day when the weather is clement and you’ll be able to marvel at the parks and verdant gardens that are throughout London.
- River Tours: This is the best way to see London if you have recently moved here. There are duck tours, similar to those that they have in Boston, USA or you can take a high speed RIB boat up the Thames, but one of the best is to take the London Water Bus tours that meanders up the river, exploring some of the smaller tourist attractions as well as giving you a day pass to the London Zoo, which is a highlight for the whole family.
- Alexandra Palace: This is a great place for a day out with the family. There are acres of parkland as well as an ice rink, a lake for boating and a deer enclosure. Alexandra Palace has some great eateries and a supervised children’s play area. It is situated in north London and is well worth a visit for the day.
- Bike Tours: Cycling is hugely popular. There are the daredevil messenger bikers who cycle madly through the crowded city streets delivering documents and parcels. But at the weekend, many folks like to get out and cycle along the beautiful cycle paths that are found throughout the city. There are a number of bike tours that you can go on that include visits to some great tourist spots as well as being good exercise. You don’t have to be especially experienced and many of the tours are guided.
Whichever way you want to see it here, there is a tour that will help you do it. It is all about getting out into the city and finding new and interesting things to do and see when you’re living in this great city.
