Autumn time is upon us meaning the days are getting colder and the dark is coming sooner. But you plan on visiting the huge multicultural city of London this autumn and want to make the most of your visit, whilst keeping in mind that fall is upon us. So without further ado, here is our list for the top 5 must-sees in London this fall.
- The Shard
Taking a view from the top of The Shard will provide you with 360-degree vista of London’s skyline and city landscape. The Shard is almost twice the height of any other structure in London, standing at over 1,000 feet. On the 72nd floor you can visit Skydeck, an open-air viewing platform that provides stunning views over the city. Although this is a top 5 list, from this view alone you will be able to view as much as the River Thames, the Gherkin, the Tower Bridge, and St Paul’s Cathedral.
If you enjoy the astonishing views that the Shard has to offer, you should consider a 4 star hotel in London that’s affordable and offers similar views in the Shard area.
- Tower of London
Standing for nearly 1,000 years, The Tower of London is one of London’s most iconic and popular attractions. Here you will explore its rich history as a royal palace, prison and jewel house. Take a tour of its grand halls, vast passageways, and rooms. You may also explore the King’s chambers at the fort, where you can see the priceless Crown Jewels and learn about the fort’s many bloody tales.
- Warner Bros Studio Tour – Harry Potter
The Warner Bros Studio Tour, which is located at the studios in which all eight Harry Potter films were made, displays the skill, vision, and artistry that went into turning the famous books into blockbuster hits on screen. As well as magic from the films, visitors will experience the magic that went into creating the cinema hits. Step foot onto actual sets, learn about the brilliance behind stunning visual effects, and explore the secrets behind filming.
- Buckingham Palace
Home to the Queen of England, Buckingham Palace is a must-see attraction when you come to visit London. The palace is often open to the public until mid October, but the front of the palace where the Queen’s guards patrol the grounds and the Victoria memorial can be found, is just as impressive and the perfect location to capture a photo of the beautiful building.
- Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens is London’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is home to the most diverse collection of living plants in the World. Kew Gardens is the ultimate escape from the urban side of the city, and looks rather enchanting in the fall season. Brace yourself for the 59ft high Treetop Walkway, that stands tall among colossal trees, providing blissful views of the gardens. There are over 60,000 plants to see along the Great Walk Borders and the famous Palm House which offers an exotic rainforest environment right in the heart of London.
So, those were 5 things you must see if you decide to take a trip to the stunning city of London this coming fall.
