As a tourist to London there are many choice places that you just have to visit. Photographs in front of the Buckingham Palace gates, optical illusion pictures with Big Ben, even a night spent marvelling at the lights of London whilst catching a sky high ride on the London Eye. However, if you want to see Londoners in their natural habitat, there are a few other places you should be visiting. Many of them cost very little, a day spent at the library is enough for you to not only enjoy one of the quietest places in London, but you also get to see native Londoners enjoying peace, quiet and the search for knowledge. There are many other places that you can enjoy seeing people in their natural habitat, and a great way to do it is with an escort by you side. It is always good to have company with you, also meaning that you have someone to translate some of the more unusual behaviour, and introduce you to some of the best restaurants around.
Tate Modern is a great place to enjoy fewer tourists and more locals. The art here is breathtaking, and you and your escort can easily spend the day wandering the galleries and enjoying what the human mind can create. What is even better is that if you feel a little peckish you can always enjoy foodie heaven in Borough Market, where the cafes, restaurants and delis are open all week, and once you have had your fill you can then head across the river to see St Pauls Cathedral. You may run into a few tourists here, but the vastness of the building is enough to lull you into feeling as if you are the only man in the world.
If the weather permits there is no where better to head to than Kensington Gardens. Here you can enjoy all manner of relaxation, from a lovely picnic with your escort, through to a wander around the Serpentine, the ornamental lake (which a full circuit will take you around 40 minutes). Here you can enjoy the tranquillity, and you can even stop to watch locals swimming lengths in the lake. If you packed the right outfits even you may ponder a dip in the waters!
As we all know visitors to London aren’t just in their early twenties and looking to party their way through the city, older tourists who enjoy a little class will enjoy spending a little time at Berry Bros and Rudd. Whilst Lord Byron was a fan in the past, you may become a fan in the present. Having been around for at least 400 years, the stock on hand is mind boggling, and you needn’t worry about the staff being snobby, they are just as happy to espouse the virtues of cheaper wine and spirits as well as the rare and collectable wines. No matter what you decide to do in London, it doesn’t have to be all tour
