Birthday celebrations, work party, holiday, or just fancy a day out? The Big Smoke is the perfect place. There’s something for everyone in London; whether you’re looking for traditional sight seeing or you want to find quirky locations, you’ll find it in the city. Below, we’ve come up with some of our favourite different things to do in London:

Shopping

If there’s one thing London is great for, it’s shopping. If you’re looking for one street where you will find almost every shop you could imagine, Oxford Street will be perfect for you. Christmas shopping in the streets of London is an experience you shouldn’t miss out on; Carnaby Street, Regent Street and Covent Gardens always have the prettiest lights. If you prefer a shopping centre, Westfield Stratford is a great place to shop ‘til you drop!

Food and Drink

If you’re looking for different things to do in London which involve food, this section is for you! London is the ideal destination for quirky restaurants. Do you like a glass of bubbly and hot dogs? Why not have both and head to Bubbledogs? Or, if you’re looking to have a bit of fun with friends for dinner, indulge in pizza whilst getting competitive over a few games of ping pong at Bounce. London is also a great place for quirky afternoon tea; one of our favourites is the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Events

The final category on our list of different things to do in London is events. London holds some of the best events in the country, especially during the autumn and winter months. Drink lots of beer, eat great food and have fun with friends at Oktoberfest in Canary Wharf; this is an excellent event starting at the end of September. Whether you’re looking for a family day out or a night with friends, there are always fantastic shows on at the West End; you’re sure to find something that everyone will enjoy.
