Do you want to have a unique experience in London? Then you need to go off the beaten path. There’s nothing wrong with doing what everybody else does: Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the London Eye, that kind of thing. However, there are so many more things you can do to ensure this is the best and most unique trip to London you have. Here’s how:
Watch a Film in the Park
Have you ever been to an outdoor cinema? You won’t find too many opportunities to do this around the UK. I know when I think of things like this I think of open-roof cars in America, the kind you see in films. However, London often has opportunities for you to go and watch a film outdoors. You can do it on a rooftop or in the park, whichever suits you best. There are often pop up screens, so make sure you browse online to see what’s on the dates you visit. It’s a great experience!
Princess May Car Boot Sale
This car boot is on every Saturday, Sunday, and bank holiday Monday. If you love all things quirky, vintage, and retro then the Princess May Car Boot sale is for you. Find it at Stoke Newington and get ready to find some unique souvenirs! Most people go to Camden Market, and while that’s still a unique place to go, Princess May is worth a visit too.
Forget Starbucks, Have Coffee in a Toilet
Why go to a Starbucks chain when you could enjoy a nice coffee in the toilet? You read that right! Of course it’s not a toilet anymore; it’s been renovated to become a quirky little place to enjoy your afternoon pick me up. It also serves light bites to eat. Find The Attendant at Foley Street W1W6DY. This kind of place is what London city is all about.
See the Graffiti Art
London is like the home of all Graffiti art. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before, and is definitely more arty than an eyesore. You can find it at Stockwell, Brick Lane, and Parklands Walk. There are even graffiti tours you can take if you want to learn all about it properly.
