But for now, today, we are going to have a look at some of the more cultural experiences you can have in this city.
London has a lot of amazing places to see and to visit, but if you are a newbie, one of the most rewarding would have to be broadway london. Broadway is the place where people go to watch amazing operas and plays and it is a night out which you won’t be forgetting any time soon.

The VA, Saatchi and countless more… London is a huge place to see and enjoy some art and you’ll be in the heart of this buzzing community when you visit the capital this spring. The art galleries in London show off some of the most stunning pieces from several periods in time including the Pre Raphaelites, impressionists and more modern art. You’ll be able to get lost in a world of colour and life and it can be a great way to teach your kids about history in a fun way.
Of course, one of the biggest ways we can celebrate culture and history is to visit a museum and see some of the most amazing artifacts and learn the truth behind the biggest events in history. The National Museum in London holds some of the most stunning and mind blowing exhibits in the country such as the skeleton of a huge whale which hangs from the ceiling as you walk through. If you love science and history there is no better place to be than here.
The Tower Of London
One of the most fascinating places to visit in London if you are a bit of a history buff is the Tower of London. The Tower of London has been around for centuries and it has been used to house some of the most notorious criminals in British history. For a dose of spookiness to your trip you should definitely take the tour and you might well feel a few spirits present during your trip.
Who could visit London and not go to see the royal palace during their stay? Perhaps one of the most famous buildings in the world, this palace has been the Home of monarchs for hundreds of years and it is the most heavily guarded place in the country at all times. If you are lucky you might even see the flag flying to indicate that the queen is there!
