It’s been a strange few months but things are beginning to get back to normal. Although there are a few safety measures in place, there’s still plenty of fun things to do in London. With the weather warming up and fewer crowds to slow you down, it’s actually a great time to visit the capital. If you’re wanting to plan a trip to London but still need some convincing, this one is for you!

1. Picnic in one of London’s parks

Who doesn’t love a bite to eat whilst soaking up the sun?! No matter where you are in London there’s likely a green area or park within a stone’s throw that perfect for a picnic. A lot of the time they are hidden between buildings and down small side streets but they can be found – you just need to know where to look.

2. Go shopping

There’s nothing like a bit of retail therapy to warn off the Covid-19 blues. It might not be the shopping experience you’re used to, but now some of the social distancing measures have been lifted, you can still ‘shop til’ you drop’ in London. With many of the major stores once again opening their doors, it’s time to dig out some bargains for the rest of the summer.

3. See the sights

From the London Eye and the Southbank Centre to Big Ben and Trafalgar Square, London is jam-packed with iconic places to visit. You might have to wait for a little longer to go inside these breathtaking buildings but there’s nothing stopping you from exploring the city and soaking up some stunning architecture.

4. Get snapping, sketching and painting

With fewer people getting in frame and fewer cars on the roads ruining composition, there has never been a better time for budding creatives to visit London. Grab your camera, paintbrushes and canvases and get out on the streets of London. Make the most of this peculiar time and unleash your creativity without any pesky distractions!

5. Head to a beer garden

By far the safest way to socialise these days is outdoors in the fresh London air, which makes the beer garden our saviour for the summer months ahead. Although many of the pubs have social distancing rules in place, fortunately, you can still get a tipple or two at one of London’s many beer gardens.
