Cool Places To Visit In London

London is a cool city, there’s no disputing that. It’s the city that gave the world liberal democracy and punk rock. It’s a city like no other, where the arts and culture entwine with everyday life. It’s why over 15 million people visit every year. It’s little wonder when there are more than 200 museums, 800 art galleries, 300 music venues and 250 festivals to go to. There are so many things to do it can be hard to decide where to start. So here are 8 cool things to get you started…

1. Best Way To See The City

On a kayak! That’s right. Take a kayaking tour and you will be able to paddle down The Thames past such iconic sights as the Tower of London and the Palace of Westminster. There can’t be a cooler way to see the city than this!

2. Full English At The Shard

The Aqua Shard is a fabulous restaurant in The Shard, where you can tuck into a full English breakfast while enjoying stunning views of London. The restaurant is on the 31st floor, but the price of a full English is a lot cheaper than a trip to the top of the building. What better way to start your day!

3. A Night At The Museum

What could be cooler than visiting a museum under the cloak of night? Here are some that open until late: Natural History Museum, Science Museum and British Museum. There are many more museums that have night openings, and galleries too! Check websites for times and to find out more.

4. Be Enlightened

Why not learn something while you are in town? Intelligence Squared is the world’s top debating forum open to the public. The debates take place across London and involve some of the sharpest minds and orators in the world.

5. Take In A Movie And A Hidden Bar

The British Film Institute is a great place to watch a movie, from cult classics to current blockbusters. Something you may not know about the BFI is they have a hidden bar called The Drawing Room. What cooler way to discuss the film you’ve just watched than over cocktails in a secret bar?

6. Bowl Like An All Star

Bowling alleys are often synonymous with tacky furnishings, cheap food and crappy music. This is not so at the All Star Lanes. It has super cool furnishings, cocktails and music. For a taste of Americana in London it’s the place to go.

7. Finest Cocktails In Town

If you’ve seen Tom Cruise in Cocktail, then you’ll have a good idea of what to expect at The London Cocktail Club. The way the bartenders fling about their shakers and set fire to their cocktails, it’s like Tom on steroids. If you want to start your night off with a bang this place is seriously banging!

8. Cool Live Jazz

Is there anything cooler than jazz? Well the coolest place in London to enjoy it live is the Nightjar. This place is classy, intimate and cooler than cool. If you want to experience the speakeasy vibe this haunt will not disappoint.

London is such a cool place to visit and fabulous holiday apartments in London have to be the best way to stay in the city. So be cool and book a trip to London and have the coolest time of your life!
