The capital truly does have it all: iconic landmarks, mesmerising skyscrapers, luscious green parks, an array of attractions, spectacular venues for different events, fantastic dining options and enticing cocktail bars. No matter whether you want to get out in the open or head indoors for some fun, there are plenty of options to suit everyone in London. Just in case you need any more convincing, here’s why we think you need to visit the city this spring.
The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race
This spring, the crews from Oxford and Cambridge universities will battle it out on the Thames during the famous annual boat race. The free sporting event in London attracts up to 250,000 people, so why not get involved this year? The question you need to ask yourself is: who are you going to support?
The London Marathon 2020
If you would like to join the thousands of runners and spectators on the streets of London, you can – at the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020. After starting the race at Greenwich and Blackheath, runners will pass some of London’s most iconic landmarks, including Big Ben, before crossing the finish line next to Buckingham Palace.
St Patrick’s Day Parade
To celebrate St Patrick’s Day, you can catch free performances in Trafalgar Square, sample some traditional Irish food and sip on Guinness in the capital. Be mesmerised by the amazing floats and marching bands and get ready to watch the procession set off at midday from Piccadilly.
Get close to a few famous (waxwork) faces and head to the Madame Tussauds museum in Marylebone. There, you will be able to take pictures with some of your favourite celebrities, including Brad Pitt, the Kardashians and of course the Royal Family. With a number of Madame Tussaud deals available, you and your friends and family can have more fun for less!
Watch a show at the theatre
Have you been wanting to see the likes of The Book of Mormon, The Lion King or Mary Poppins? If so, don’t put it off any longer – get booking your theatre tickets to experience the magical performances today!
Visit the Tate Modern
Although the Tate Modern is one of the city’s leading art spots, it is not only limited to artwork. There, you will also find performances, photography, live art exhibitions and film. For something a little different in London, it’s worth adding to your list.
With so much to see and do in London, it can be hard to decide what to do first. What will you be doing in the capital this spring?
