I love visiting London. Unfortunately, I don’t get the chance to visit as often as I would like – once or twice a year at most. When I do visit it’s usually for a special event such as a concert or festival. There are so many amazing places to visit and things to do in London I thought I would share my top 5 things I want to do in London wishlist. It’s quite a random list as I thought I would choose a few different things. I won’t be able to do all of the things on my list this year but if I manage one or two a year I would be more than happy.
Visit the English National Opera
I would love to see a show at the Opera, it’s something I have always wanted to do but haven’t got around to yet, but I’m determined to change that. I know it’s something my mum and sister would also love and it would be great to get dressed up and enjoy a fantastic show together especially in such a grand building as the ENO. I have had a look at the shows running at the ENO and really like the sound of The Queen of Spades which is showing throughout June. The Queen of Spades is the story of an impoverished army officer who finds out an aged countess knows the secret to winning at cards and he is determined to wrestle the secret from her no matter the cost – even death! It is described as a dark masterpiece and sounds like an exciting performance. It has already got lots of rave reviews which isn’t a surprise as the ENO is internationally renowned as a front runner when it comes to highly theatrical performances.
Enjoy a Thames River Cruise
I really can’t decide if I would prefer to go on a speedboat which looks amazing, fast paced and fun or if I would like to go on a leisurely cruise and have afternoon tea, decisions, decisions. This is on my list of things to do next time I visit the capital, I’ve already had a look at the prices and they are pretty good. I have also noticed there are a few 2 for the price of 1 offers available for this type of activity which is always a bonus. There are so many amazing buildings and sights in London that I would love to see them from a different perspective and a boat ride down the Thames would be perfect. I love photography and this would definitely be a great opportunity for some fantastic photos.
Visit the National History Museum
It’s hard to believe in all the times I have been to London I have never visited the Natural History Museum. I would really like to take a trip to the museum with my nephew when I am next in London. The reviews are amazing and there are so many fantastic exhibitions, including a dinosaurs exhibition which my nephew is mad about. Although museums might not be my first choice of things to do I do find them fascinating places to visit. Really there isn’t an excuse for not visiting as it’s free to get in, I usually just run out of time!
Go on a Ghost Tour
I have always wanted to go on a ghost tour, there’s something about not knowing what might be around the next corner that is exciting and scary at the same time – of course there is some history thrown in too! I believe in the supernatural and although I would probably be scared going on a tour it’s still something I would enjoy experiencing. The only downside is I might have to go on this one alone as for some reason most people don’t like scaring themselves silly!
Watch a match at Wimbledon
I love watching tennis and would love to see a match at Wimbledon, especially if Andy Murray is playing! The atmosphere at the matches always looks amazing, even Murray Mound looks like an amazing place to watch a match and soak up the atmosphere. I never thought I would find tennis such an exciting sport but it really is a great sport and I love watching it. Although this is at the bottom of the list here, this is in fact the number one thing I want to do!
