I love London, and the advantage of living 40 minutes away by train is I can explore it whenever I fancy. Unsurprisingly, this leads to an awful lot of my photos being of our capital.
There is so much to see in London that it is one of the best places to photograph. I’ve visited so many times and every time I will find a different side street, statue, or piece of art that I have never stumbled across before. There are still museums and attractions I’ve not visited and areas I’ve never explored.
I feel really bad for tourists who visit for a few days and have to try and fit everything in, as it’s near-impossible. How do you fit in:
- visits to the various museums;
- a ride on the London Eye;
- a look round Wembley Stadium, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace;
- a visit to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels;
- a boat ride along the Thames;
- the various attractions in Greenwich;
- browse the vast stores of Harrods and Hamleys;
- explore the Olympic Park, Hyde Park, Regents Park and St. James’s Park;
- check out Madame Tussauds, the London Dungeons and London Zoo;
- visit the deer of Richmond Park;
- take in the amazing views of Primrose Hill and Alexandra Palace;
- walk in the footsteps of the Beatles at Abbey Road;
- check out the numerous West End musicals;
- visit Brick Lane, Camden Lock and Carnaby Street;
- and see inside Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral?
I have been to various cities around the world, and while I have really liked some (and not liked some others), I have yet to find a city that is as perfect for exploring as London.
