Look Up, Step Out: England, Lovely from All Angles

Look Up, Step Out: England, Lovely from All Angles

You don’t have to be a fan of The Beatles, Stephen Hawking, or J.K. Rowling (although if you are then it’s all the more reason) to make England as your next Eurotrip destination. If you’re wondering what fun things you can do in England, read on:


Take a cruise along the Thames River. Enjoy the panoramic view of the city and of the most famous Tower Bridge from the Thames River.


Feel like royalty at the Windsor Castle. Do you sometimes feel like you’re the long lost princess who never got to know her father who happened to be a king? Well, this might be your chance to trace back your roots as the Windsor Castle served as the family home to both English and British Royal families.


Watch the changing of guards at the Buckingham Palace. If you’re not so much in a rush, this spot with all its gold-coated fences and statues is perfect for people watching. And also, be amused when you catch the changing of guards.


Appreciate a legit London West End Theatrical show at Covent Garden. Contrary to its name, Covent Garden isn’t actually a garden but a London district between St. Martin's Lane and Drury Lane. The district is home to many hotels, restaurants, boutiques, and theaters.


Be able to tell the time from the Big Ben. Just so you can say you were able to tell the time from the Great Bell a.k.a. clock tower.


View London from the top, and by that we mean, the London Eye. The long queues are going to be worth it, so line up and head on to the top of the Ferris wheel. 


Pick a book or two from the Notting Hill Bookshop. Having once served as a film location to the movie Notting Hill, shopping for a book here either for yourself or as a gift has never been more fun.


Feed your wonder looking at the Stonehenge. In hindsight, they are simply huge stones piled on top of the other. What’s mind-boggling? How were they moved there?
