Top Places To Visit

Contrary to popular belief, Tower bridge is not London bridge. London bridge is an ordinary-looking bridge that was built in 1973, and is walking distance from borough market. Tower bridge on the other hand is located at Tower hill tube station and is painted in white, blue and red for Queen Elizabeth II's silver jubilee in 1977. And because it spans across the River thames, it's extremely windy and cold during winter (there's a Starbucks on the lower south side of the Thames if you need to grab your cuppa warm joe to bear the chills).

This was a cool attraction, and I had a ball! We had to wait for about two hours to get in, then spent an hour and half exploring the place. Loved the horror and superheroes sections!

The Museums: London houses some of the best museums of the world and most of them don’t have an entry fee. The National Gallery is home to more than 2000 works of art. The plush Tate Modern and Tate Britain are also jaw dropping. Once in London the Science Museum is also worth a dekko which has seven floors of educating and entertaining exhibits.

Day 4 in London: I'm a big cricket fan and if you're cricket fan in England, there's one place you just cannot miss. The Mecca for all cricket lovers; The Lords Stadium. I went in for the tour at 11 am (They have hourly tours in the morning and afternoon from 10 am - 2 pm). The tour started with the Long hall, proceeded to the players' dressing rooms & balconies, and ended in the media center. The entry fee and tour is £18/person.

I bawled like a baby after visiting International Museum of Slavery in Liverpool. It changed the way I looked at life and my perspective on humanity.Bristol - Street art - Bohemia - Eclectic Hipster Crowd - Great Night life - Dismaland - Banksy - Amaze Balls!Things I would have skipped / would have loved to goPersonally, I think I did see what I wanted to see and I wouldn't skip anything on my list. I would have loved to go to Cumbria and also would have loved to see Hadrian's wall. Maybe for the next trip?

I have been to the park 3 times till now but I never made it to very far. This winter though I finally managed to get farther than before - we went up to Kenwood House, an old English country house which houses a lot of great paintings - the highlight of which was a Rembrandt!! I think there is still some more to explore, maybe next summer...

Non-Shakespeare things: Hmmm, well. There are a couple of other things to do here, such as visiting the MAD Museum, Magic Alley, the Tudor Museum or the Butterfly Farm.... at night, you can also check out Ghost Tours for around £6. However, for the budget traveller, the main thing I'd suggest is taking some nice walks.

Terra-Cotta Warriors Another must-see stop in China would be it's second-largest tourist stop. The Terra-Cotta Warriors are amazing and should not be missed. These beautiful works of art are hand carved lifelike clay warriors which are said to stand guard at the site that is believed to be the tomb of an emperor. Though the tomb itself has yet to be uncovered, the beautiful Terra-Cotta Warriors were uncovered during excavation in 1974. They are intricately detailed and stand in guard of formation side-by-side in rows. It is a haunting and surreal site to take in and is rich with historical significance. Considering a Trip to China Soon? A vacation to the beautiful land of China promises not to disappoint whether you are looking to stay in the city and experience amazing sites and sounds of this wonderful culture, or are looking to get away to the beautiful and mountainous countryside. The wonderful locals and amazing cuisine are pluses and definitely lend themselves to the rich heritage and culture of the people and place. You can plan your trip around rich history, the city and it's modern nuances, or the unmatched Asian cuisine that varies from city to countryside. How you experience China is completely up to you and is as individual as it's millions of yearly visitors.

Don’t miss: Shopping! Dedicate one full day because after all this is the country’s biggest shopping mecca after London! While Style Mile boasts of all the big brands, West End has quirky options. Next day I immersed myself in paintings at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow School of Art and the Mackintosh House, but frankly Glasgow was a bit of a disappointment, maybe because the city lacks a distinct flavour.Eat: Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and a drink at Horseshoe Bar, the longest continuous bar in Europe. Day 6 & 7: Birmingham Distance from Glasgow: 466kmUK’s second largest city had to be on my agenda for just one reason – it’s the home of the Cadbury Factory and the child in me just had to visit.

Built for the Royal family, apparently the Queen once said it was the only place in the world she could truly relax. It’s a grand ship, retired in 1997, that’s truly outfitted for royalty and has hosted many of the most famous personalities on the planet, at events with the Queen while she was in ports around the world. I love boats, sailing and maritime history so for me, it was a fun afternoon. I’d recommend if you’re going to go, leave time for afternoon tea. The Darjeeling with a slice of lemon cake was delightful and the parlor on the top deck has great views, enclosed from the weather.

One of the most fascinating castles I’ve ever been in, if not the most fascinating, it’s recently completed a really thorough renovation project that began back in 1999. The Queen came and formally opened it just in 2011. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Royal Apartments furnished as they would have been during the life of Mary Queen of Scots and I also liked seeing the weavers at work who are currently completing the last of the panels which are a reproduction of the famed “Unicorn Tapestries.” There’s something about being in the shadow of a centuries-old castle that really sets a grand tone for New Year’s Eve and it turned out to be the perfect place to sport a Stewart tartan kilt. I enjoyed the live music, loved meeting the boys of the band “Bags of Rock” and Dougie MacLean’s acoustic version of ‘Caledonia’ actually made me tear up. The fireworks were the icing on a very nice cake.
