Weekend Getaways from Devon
390 Kms from Devon
London is a magnificent melting pot and an exemplary showcase art, culture and beautiful urban spaces - both contemporary and historical. England’s largest city is home to some of the world’s most magnetic Gothic architecture, and a prolific arts and theatre culture. A few must visit places in London are the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. Head to the Buckingham Palace and catch the changing of the Guard at 11:30am from May until the end of July. Tourists can view the Crown Jewels, and also take a mandatory picture with a guard. Most of London’s museums have free entry, so take it all in from Tate Modern to the City Museum to the National Gallery and the Historical Museum. Make a stop at the Westminster Abbey and revel in the bustling Trafalgar Square that is the heart of London. For something more intimate, take a walk down to the Borough Market that has probably the best food and produce in London. Grab yourself a Cornish pasty or a plateful of the signature fish and chips before you leave the city.
Food: Gorge on scones and jam, with the Devonshire cream tea. Also try the local ice-creams made from clotted cream. The Cornish pasty is a must. So are the traditional ginger biscuits, called Cornish Fairings. As you walk back to your hotel, sip on some cider and get yourself some handmade fudge for the night.Suggested Stay:
