Top Tips for Things to do in London

Leslie asked:

“Say a friend was coming in who’d never been to London before. besides
the museums, what two things would you tell them not to miss?”

which got my mind working…..

1. So long as it’s not raining, stroll along the South Bank – from Waterloo/London Eye to Southwark Bridge or beyond to Tower Bridge and swanky Shad Thames and the Design Museum.

If they’re into walking around, the Silver Jubilee trail is a good way to explore central London and includes all of the South Bank.

2. Riding around on London buses. Buy a travelcard for the day, get a bus map from Transport for London and have a tour with fine views from the comfort of the top deck.

And en route to the TfL tourist info, I discovered this PDF Map of Key Bus Routes and Tourist Attractions in Central London. Fantastic.
