My London Bucket List

A few months back I shared this list of my top 21 things to do in London. From running along the Southbank, to watching a play at the National Theatre and afternoon tea at Sketch, that London bucket list list was all about my favourite things to do in London town. It’s the list I share with anyone visiting the city, and I feel like it’s a finely honed view of the city. But it’s not everything. You see there are plenty of things to see and do in London that I’ve still never done. Some are classics, some are slightly obscure, but all are things I’ve yet to experience in the city. And that’s what this London bucket list is for. The hope is that if I write these down I will actually get around to ticking them off one day soon.

My ‘still to do’ in London bucket list

Afternoon tea at The Ritz – I absolutely love an afternoon tea session and this one is a classic that must go onto the London bucket list.

A trip to the Imperial War Museum – I’ve not been since my school days, but I loved it then so I’m sure I’ll love it now.

Visit Hampstead Heath – how bad is it that I’ve still not been here?! I want to take a picnic and while away a whole day just watching the world go by.

Tour the Houses of Parliament – It’s an iconic building and a pillar of our democracy, so to step foot inside would be absolutely fascinating.

A trip up the Shard – You can see the Shard from all over London, but I still haven’t seen all of London from the Shard. I’m intrigued to see what the building is like inside and what the city looks like spread out so far below.

Visit the Churchill War Rooms – Especially after watching The Darkest Hour the other week. I’m even more intrigued about these rooms and the history I will uncover on a trip there.

Broadway Market – One Saturday morning I’m going to get up early and make my way across London to have a wander around Broadway Market. I’m planning to look at all the stalls and then eat all of the things.

The Barbican – Still not been here. But one day I will see or do something (anything) at The Barbican.

A duck boat tour – Yes it’s super touristy, but there’s something quite nostalgic about a trip along the Thames on a yellow duck boat.

Do you have a London bucket list? If so what’s on it?
