When it comes to visiting London, no experience is ever the same. Whether you intend to spend a weekend in the countryside or go on a caravan with the family, there is a myriad of things to do. But what if you and your mate are contemplating on going off-the-beaten-path? What are the things to expect?

Here are some suggestions to make the most of your holiday in unusual London:

Go Kayaking along River Thames


If you fancy some outdoor activity while seeing the sights, head off to the River Thames and go on a kayaking adventure. Whether this is your first time to do so or have been coming back numerous times, a day is not enough to experience the city.


Drink tea on top of a double-decker bus.


Britons love tea and tourists, local and foreign, should not let this opportunity pass while on a holiday. Enjoy a traditional afternoon tea with a twist. Instead of sipping a cup in a café or restaurant, why not do so while you take a tour of the Central City on a double-decker bus? Swing by Piccadilly Circus, the Buckingham Palace and other interesting landmarks seated comfortably with food and drinks.


Explore London’s smallest museum and Container City.

Travel to Trinity Buoy Wharf and discover the haven for creative minds in the smallest museum you will see in London’s Docklands. The Container City is becoming one of the most popular spots and is located in the heart of London. The city also boasts of its one and only lighthouse.


Get a view of the city for free.

Why pay for a London Eye ticket when you can have a view of the city without spending your quid? Climb on top of the One New Change mall and from the terrace, you can not only see the lovely city from above but also take some picture perfect shots you can share with friends.

The next time you drop by London, do it the unusual way!
