How to Spend One Day in London

London is the place that I feel like I am at home . I have lived in London to study University in 2001 😳🤔 . 

OMG, the time flies by

 ..... I absolutely love the Londoner atmosphere .

In April I had an amazing opportunity to come back to London to take place at the UK Blog award as finalist . I was feeling over the moon. 

We decided to make the event a great short family trip. I have realised that London can be a wonderful destination for a family holiday.  There are some great ways to have fun with the family in London without spending much money. 


We stayed in Westminster Plaza Hotel  , the location was perfect . I had the stunning opportunity to run by the Thames river from the Big Ben to the London Bridge Tower in the morning and to enjoy many attractions with my family during the day. 
Most of London’s top attractions are all within walking distance of each other. 


You can also hire “Boris Bikes”  these are a particularly good option at the weekends, as there tends to be less heavy traffic. Pick a bike up using your credit card, head to your next destination and then put it back in the dock. It costs £2 for 24 hours and if you won’t get charged if your journeys are under 30 minutes.

We have started our day down in Westminster .

 Big Ben 
The most famous clock in the world, Big Ben is a ‘must see’ for any visit to London! 
London Eye 
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London
See the Cabinet War Rooms
Where Winston Churchill won the war and led the heads of the armed forces during World War II, the Cabinet War Rooms here are comprised of the underground bunker where Churchill worked – and occasionally lived – during the war. 
10 Downing Street
10 Downing Street is the official residence and the office of the British Prime Minister. 

Parks in  London 


The English capital is one of the few cities in the world that have several green areas for residents and visitors. They are  very nice for a walk and, on warmer days, having a family picnic.


Nearby the Buckingham Palace, it is a  23-hectare green area with a playground for younger children and a lake with pelicans and a stunning garden.

The Changing of the Guard 

The Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place between three locations – Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace and Wellington Barracks.

 From Monday to Saturday at 11:00 am or on Sunday at 10am . The children absolutely love it, so do I . 


London's Hyde Park is one of the greatest city parks in the world with over 4,000 trees, a large lake, a meadow and ornamental flower gardens, there’s a good chance you’ll forget you are right in the centre of London.
Hyde Park in London has something for everyone. You can enjoy swimming, boating, cycling and skating. There are pitches for team games, tennis courts, tracks for horse riding and a spectacular children’s playground.
 Hyde Park is home to a number of fascinating buildings and monuments, such as The Serpentine Bridge, the Joy of Life fountain and the famous Archiles statue. And with the Diana Memorial Fountain and open air events throughout the year, there’s always something to see and do. If you’re out and about on Sunday, head to Speaker’s Corner to hear London’s most vocal orators share their opinions with the world.

I know that many people think of museums is not a great entertainment for kids, but in London there are great choices for them .

The Natural History Museum in London is a museum of natural history that exhibits a vast range of specimens from various segments of natural history
Hundreds of exciting, interactive exhibits in one of London’s most beautiful landmark buildings. Highlights include the popular Dinosaurs gallery, Mammals display with the unforgettable model blue whale and the spectacular Central Hall, home to the Museum’s iconic Diplodocus skeleton. 
Don’t miss the state-of-the-art Darwin Centre Cocoon where, on a self-guided tour, you can see hundreds of fascinating specimens and look into laboratories where scientists are at work.
The Museum offers a wide-ranging programme of temporary exhibitions and events, including chances to join experts in the Darwin Centre’s high-tech Attenborough Studio in topical discussions about science and nature.
Its a free of charge .


There’s a pub or bar on practically every street corner, so it’s not hard to find somewhere to have a drink.

Eating out 


With so much competition there are always restaurant deals around. You also can do picnic. The kids love it.

And finally…

I hope you have got some London recommendations to add to your day trip.
