The city has plenty to offer everyone, so whether  you’re interested in the arts, architecture, entertainment or fashion you will find plenty to do in this great city.

You don’t have to spend a fortune in London as there are plenty of things you can do on a budget or free.  There are a number of great museums including the British Museum which is great for arts and culture as is the V&A museum. The Natural History Museum is the place to see amazing artefacts and if you want to learn about science and how things work you need to head to the Science Museum.

Fancy a Muscial?

The West End is the place to go when it comes to musicals. There are over 40 theaters in the East End alone, but over 120 in the whole of London. Or the next couple of months you can watch Grease at the New Wimbledon Theatre, 42nd Street is on at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Alice’s Adventures Underground is on at the Vaults. Dream Girls is on at the Savoy Theatre, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts I & II is on at the Palace Theatre, Les Miserables at the Queens’s Theatre, Mamma Mia at the Novello Theatre and Maltida the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre. There are tons more and something for everyone. The LondonTheature.co.uk is a great site to see what’s on and buy tickets. London really is the entertainment capital of Europe.

Many people don’t realise that there are plenty of green parks to enjoy. St James’s Park hosted some of the Olympic and Paralympics’ games in the summer of 2012. All the venues were removed at the end of Summer and now are back open to the public. Hampstead Heath, Wimbledon Common, Hyde Park, Epping Forest are all other parks which are open to the public.
