This is already the fourth time I visit London and it just doesn’t stop to amaze me. Skyscrapers pop up everywhere in all sorts of shapes. Still, the city kept its medieval vibe through historical palaces, cathedrals and buildings. At the end of the article, you can download a free Windows 10 theme with my best London Wallpapers.
Oxford Street Photo
It looks really nice in the photo, but I have to admit that it is overcrowded (especially during Christmas holidays). However, if you like living in a big city, London is the place for you.
Tower Bridge Photo
I have seen Tower bridge in many times of the day and positions. The best angle and time of day is, in my opinion, this one. The architecture looks best when everything around it is fading away in the dark.
Saint Paul’s Cathedral Photo
It burnt down in the great fire of 1666. Restored in the years later, by a different architect. Now it stands as one of London’s most famous cathedrals. I never went inside, but I think it is worth the ticket.
The White Tower Photo
Two years ago I spent almost half a day inside this magnificent medieval fortress. It can be found in the heart of London, by the River Thames and near Tower Bridge. A place full of history that is worth visiting.
London at Night Skyline
Less and less stars can be seen on London’s skies, as more and more skyscrapers arise. In this photo you can admire the old financial centre of London and some of its famous buildings: The Gherkin, The Walkie Talkie and The Cheese Grater.
Southbank Skate Place Photo
The city of London has its urban or modern places to go. One of them is the Skatepark from Southbank. If you are a skateboard lover, you will like this place and perhaps make some new friends.
London Eye Photo
Famous for the NYE fireworks, London Eye is a fairly new landmark. If you ask me, I would not wait in line for half an hour and pay 27 pounds just for a painfully slow ascent to the top of London. I would pick the fast way and go The Shard (the tallest skyscraper in London and also in Europe). Nonetheless, London Eye looks very nice at night, from Westminster Bridge.
London Underground or Tube Photo
England’s capital is very stretched, due to the continuous development along the River Thames. This means that you have to travel more than a couple of miles to get from one end to the other. The fastest way is by the tube. Famous for the announcement made every time a train arrives to the station: “Mind the gap”.
Conclusion: you have a lot to see in London during the day, but the most breathtaking views are during the night.
