Looking for fun things to do in London? The capital is packed with world-famous attractions, museums, and exhibitions that will guarantee you an experience that’ll leave you in dire thirst to return for more.
So, whether it’s just you and your partner or an entire squad of stags and hens, here are six weird and wonderful ways to entertain yourselves.
1. Go on a Food Tour
London is home to a lot of great restaurants that offer an impressive range of cuisines. Consequently, you’ll want to stop for lunch or dinner at some point. The good thing is that there is no short of food tours in the city.
With that in mind, we recommend taking a food tour in Soho, London East End, and Borough Market. During your tour in these culinary hotspots, you’ll get to savour local favourites, East End classics and other cuisines including Spanish and Chinese.
2. Try Some Crazy Golf
If you’re nostalgic for simpler days or just downright competitive, you may want to try some golf. Fortunately, the city has loads of options for putter-based fun. From underground challenges and rooftop obstacles to themed courses ranging from mythical to exotic, there’s no shortage of crazy golf courses in London to sink in some balls.
The capital has amazing quirky golf courses where you and your friends can relax, have fun, team build and enjoy tasty food and drinks.
3. Ride the London Eye
UK’s most popular paid tourist attraction operates daily except for Christmas and is often closed for a week in January for maintenance. Due to late sunset in the summer months, the attraction closes before dark, but you’ll have the opportunity to ride the wheel at night during other seasons.
On a clear day, you’ll be able to see 25 miles – as far as the Windsor Castle when at the top of the London Eye. Packages available include private capsule flights, flights with breakfast and flights with champagne or cocktails.
4. Splash Down White-Water Rapids
Nothing makes for an action-packed experience than riding the rapids that challenged the world’s best. You can visit this London 2012 Olympic Games venue for adrenaline-fueled canoeing, kayaking, and white-water rafting sessions.
Other adventure experiences guaranteed at Splash Rafting include paintball, stand up paddle boarding, river bugs, abseiling and duckies. What’s more, you get free professional rafting photography on every white-water rafting trip.
5. Go Ice Karting
Go Karting is thrilling, but have you ever tried it on ice? Driven on an outdoor ice track, ice karting requires more technical skill than speed. The elements of ice karting are like those of a real formula race, only that it takes place on ice.
The activity includes driving instructions, warm-up laps, and the finals to determine the winner.
6. Pay A Visit to The O2
Popularly known as The Millennium Dome or the Dome, The O2 is a state-of-the-art indoor arena that features a bowling alley, nightclub, 11-screen cinema, and 26 different cafes, restaurants and bars. From sports competitions, music concerts and exhibitions, it is easy to see why the arena is one of the most visited venues in London.
