London - TWISPER destination guide
The experience guide to

London

The UK capital is one of the world’s most visited cities, and for good reason. It’s renowned for fascinating history, iconic landmarks, diverse culture and countless things to do – including plenty for free, ideal if you’re visiting London on a budget 😉

For an authentic London experience you want to really get an insight into the contrasts of this amazing city. Walk along South Bank to see 21st century skyscrapers side by side with a 320-year-old cathedral; pass Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre just a few steps from the Tate Modern art gallery and spot the instantly recognizable Tower Bridge from the legendary Millennium Bridge.

After your walk, treat yourself to a pint in a pub – an essential experience in any UK city and a great way to soak up the local atmosphere. You’ll then be ready to tackle every other London experience. Afternoon tea in a fancy hotel, exploring world-class museums, trying mouth-watering global cuisine and scouting vintage finds in one of many markets, catching a show on the West End… the list goes on and on.
