6. Taking a look at the whole city from the top of the London Eye

The tallest wheel in Europe is also a huge attraction of London! Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance as there could be a very long queue.

7. Attending a play

The best one we have ever attended was Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Ok, we may be biased as we are huge Harry Potter fans but it is really amazing! Again, don’t forget to take your tickets in advance.

9. Visiting the Warner Bros Studios to experience the ultimate Harry Potter experience

10. Trying a very healthy English breakfast (or not)

Our tips:

  • If you want to attend a football game or to visit the Warner Bros Studios, don’t forget to book (really) in advance or you won’t be able to enjoy it (or you will have to pay much more to get your tickets…)!
  • Going to London in winter is also a very good idea! Christmas time is very lovely there and New Year’s Eve in London is one of the best in the world!
  • If you are a Harry Potter fan like we are, London will be heaven to you!
