My UK Diaries !


A bag full of memories,gifts,chocolates.

5 days spent exploring the beautiful english cities.

A trip to London could just not be complete without a visit to the london eye and a panoramic view of the london city.The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. Also known as the Millennium Wheel.There is mostly a huge queue to visit this place. The fast track entry are slightly expensive.This attraction is not a part of the london pass too.

A stop by big ben on the way to london eye is definitely worthy.Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and often extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower.You can get good shots of the big ben from the Parliament Square across the street opposite big ben.

We began our london sightseeing with Piccadilly.A few minutes at this spot will get you a feel of the london city. At the center of the Circus stands the Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain. It was built in 1893 to commemorate Lord Shaftesbury, a philanthropist known for his support of the poor.

Trafalgar Square is a public space and tourist attraction in central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. It is from here you would get a glimpse of the londons Great Bell the big ben.The national art gallery is just behind this square.There are plenty of cafes around this place incase you would like to sip in some hot coffee or use free wifi ;)

The palace is the London residence and principal workplace of the monarchy of the United Kingdom.Incase you are around at 11 am you could watch the change of guards. Spend some time in the royal gardens.

Harrods is an upmarket department store located on Brompton Road. A quick stole to indulge in the luxury. This store also houses the Godiva chocolates (Godiva is a manufacturer of premium chocolates) A hot chocolate here could be worthy.Don't miss to take a picture with the Harrods Bear.

Walk down talking pictures with your favourite stars. Also enjoy the special 4D super hero's short film. You could also grab some hot cappuccinos at neros at the exit.

Explore beautiful St George's Chapel and the State Apartments. You could be luck enough to witness the changing of guard too.

Heathrow called "The busiest airport in the United Kingdom" You would experience this upon arrival.There is an rail link connecting Heathrow and London city. This could work out cheaper and convenient. This Heathrow Express has free wifi too.

The Oyster card! A boon to ease travel in London.

Hop in and hop off the undergrounds, buses all with this magical card. This will definitely ease all your local travel concerns in the city.

There are several offers on buying this card with the London Pass.
