London, definitely a great city with many things to see and do.

During our last trip, we realized that 3 days is not enough as London is a huge city!

However, 3 days is enough to see the most important places and to feel the London vibe and spirit.

***Spanish version below***

So where to start?

DAY 1

Of course, with the typical English breakfast to make sure you have enough energy for the whole day.

English breakfast

After breakfast, we decided to start with Chinatown so we took a metro to Leicester Square Station (you can also go to Piccadilly Circus station).

Now, you might be asking which train/metro ticket to buy. The easiest and cheapest way is to buy the Oyster card. You can use it to travel on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services in London. We bought Oyster card (you have to buy the card first for 5 GBP which you get back when you return the card) with 18 GBP credit and it was enough for 2 days travel.

So now back to the Chinatown. The first thing you will see Chinatown Gate and many lampions. Its nice walk and if you like Chinese food, this is the place to be!

From Chinatown, we headed directly to Soho district. Soho is always busy, you will find many bars and its a great place for night entertainment. It is also famous for many sex shops and gay and lesbian bars.

We continued our walk to probably one of the most famous squares Piccadilly Circus. I am sure many people know this open space square with neon and video displays which also became a very busy meeting and attraction place. Here you can find the London vibe and spirit and it is MUST see.

Next, to the Piccadilly Circus square, you will find the Trafalgar square. Trafalgar square commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar and it had been a significant landmark of the city since the 13th century.

Now, there a time for lunch and of course to taste classic Fish and Chips. There are many places you can eat this classic dish, but we really like Fish House in Notting Hill. Here is our blog post about this place.

After lunch, you can visit Hyde Park, its huge park and a great place for a walk. Hyde Park is placed just in the heart of London and offer various activities like horse riding, boating or tennis. You can also just walk or go for a run. There is Lido Cafe and Bar where you can grab a coffee and enjoy the stunning view.

Walking in Hyde Park was a nice closure for the day and we headed back home.

DAY 2

Day two is here, and we went back to the city center of London to see Buckingham Palace. Buckingham Palace is one of the few working royal palaces. It was opened for visitors some years ago and you can see rooms like the Throne room, the Grand Staircase, and gardens. At 11 am, you can also see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.

From Buckingham Palace, you can easily walk to Westminster Abbey. It is the official Royal Church and the traditional place for the coronation of British monarchs.


Next, to it, you will find the House of Parliament which is also known as the Palace of Westminster. I am sure that everyone knows Big Ben, the clock tower which is the most famous feature of the House of Parliament.

We continued towards the Westminster bridge which is a nice spot for taking pictures of the House of Parliament and Big Ben from distance.

When you cross the bridge, you get to the very popular attraction place the London Eye. The London Eye is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe and the highest viewing point in London. Here is the official website where you can buy tickets online and get a 10% discount👍

From the London Eye, we continued our tour towards the Waterloo Bridge which leads you back to the city center.

From the London Eye, we walked to the Tower Bridge. Tower Bridge is an iconic symbol of London and it is located close to the Tower of London which is a historic castle and Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress, Tower of London. Definitely worth the visit!

Tower Bridge

The next stop was Covent Garden which is located just a few minutes walk from Waterloo bridge. Covent Garden is a popular shopping and tourist site and it is associated with the Royal Opera House, which is also known as “Covent Garden”. It is a great place for grabbing lunch, having a drink or shopping.

Talking about shopping, you should definitely visit Oxford street famous for exclusive shops and one of the busiest shopping streets in Europe.

To visit the shops at Oxford street will take you the same time so we headed back home after shopping.

 

london tripDAY 3

Our last day was here and we still had many things to see. In the morning, we headed directly to the Camden town. Camden town is like one big market with a lot of food and live music venues.

You will find here food from around the globe so don’t hesitate to taste something new and delicious.

Camden town is also a hub for Londons live music venues with jazz and other types of music. It is great for tourist as you will also find many souvenir shops to buy something for your family or friends.

We spent almost the whole morning in Camden town as we really liked it and there were many things to explore from food to shops like Cyberdog.

After lunch in Camden town, we wanted to visit Notting Hill. Notting Hill is located in West of London and I am sure that many of you know this district from the movie with Julia Roberts. Notting Hill is well known for being a cosmopolitan neighborhood with nice restaurants and Victorian houses. As mentioned previously, we had the best Fish and Chips in London right in the middle of the Notting Hill in the Fish House restaurant.

With Notting Hill, we finished our 3 days tour in London and we really liked it!

It is a great city to visit and we recommend it to everyone, even for a short time.✌️😉

************

Version en Español 🇪🇸🇪🇸🇪🇸😁

Durante nuestro último viaje , hemos concluido que 3 dias no son suficientes para visitar Londres, es grandísima!

De igual forma 3 días son suficientes para ver las cosas más importantes de esta ciudad y empezar entender lo que te puede ofrecer esta ciudad.

Entonces ahora os cuento.

 

london tripDAY 1

Claramente no podríamos empezar sin el clasico desayuno a la inglesa, para tener bastante fuerza para todo el día.

Después del desayuno, hemos decidido empezar nuestro tour in Chinatown, hemos agarrado el metro hasta Leicester square estación (podéis bajar también el Picadilly Circus station).

Ahora, te estarás preguntando que billete de treno /metro tienes que comprarte? La manera más fácil y más barata es comprarte una OYSTER CARD. Puedes usar la OYSTER en todas las lineas de bus , metro, tram, transporte de superficie y los servicios ferroviarios nacionales. Hemos comprado la OYSTER CARD (tienes que comprar la tarjeta por un valor de 5 GBP que después te lo devolverán cuando devuelves la tarjeta) con 18 GBP que es bastante para viajar para 2 dias.

Volvemos a Chinatown. La primera cosa en que te fijas de este barrio son muchos lampiones. Es bonito andar en este barrio y si te gusta la comida China, este el sitio para ti.

Desde El Barrio chino nos dirigimos en SOHO District. Soho está siempre lleno, aquí puedes encontrar un monton de bares bonitos y es un buen sitio para las fiestas nocturnas. Si, este barrio es bastante famoso por muchos sexy shows y bares LGTB 🏳️‍🌈.

Desde SOHO hemos llegado a la que puede que sea una de la más famosas plazas PICADILLY CIRCUS. Estamos seguros que muchos de vosotros conocen esta plaza con luces, Neón y pantallas y que es un punto de encuentro y de atración de la ciudad. Si quieres ver la verdadera alma de Londres es un sitio que tiene la obligación de visitar.

Cerca de Picadilly andando unos 10 min puedes encontrar la plaza de TRAFALGAR. TRAFALGAR square conmemora la batalla de TRAFALGAR y es un significativo punto de referencia de la ciudad desde el 13th siglo.

Ok, después de toda esta caminada encontramos tiempo para comer, y porque no el clasico Fish and chips. Hay muchísimos sitios donde puedes comer esto plato tradicional, pero a nosotros nos gustó el Fish house in Nottingham Hill.

 

fish and chips londonDespues de la comida hemos ido directo al HYDE PARK. Este parque es enorme y es un sitio bonito para andar (sobretodo para empezar a digerir 😝). Este parque está justamente en el corazón de la ciudad y ofrece (tiempo permitiendo) un monton de actividades tipo: cavalcadas🐴, paseos en barco 🚤 o jugar al tenis 🎾. Claramente ya que se trata de un parque puedes tranquilamente andar a pie o hacer una carrerita. Dentro el parque está el Lido Café and Bar donde puedes comprarte una cafecito y disfrutar de la bonitas vistas.

Caminando en el parque hemos decidido que era un bonito final para visitar la ciudad y decidimos de ir rumbo a casa.

DAY 2

Ya llegó el segundo día chicos. Volvimos al centro y decidimos ver del día BUCKINGHAM PALACE (si os lo preguntáis está el el Hyde park 😜). Es unos de las pocas casas reales aún activas. Estaba abierta al público hace no muchos años y podías visitar varias habitaciones de la cual la del trueno, la enorme escalera o sus preciosos jardines. A la 11am de cada día puedes también ver el famoso cambio de guardia de Buckingham palace.

Desde Buckingham Palace puedes tranquilamente caminar hasta WESTMISTER ABBEY (o pilla El metro ya que te compraste la Oyster ✌️😜). Esta es la iglesia oficial de la casa real y el sitio donde se hace la encoronación de los miembros de la familia monarca inglesa.

Muy cerca puedes encontrar la House of Parliament (casa de parlament) también conocido como el palacio de Westminster.

london trip

Estamos seguros que todos conocéis el BIG BEN, la torre reloj que es la más famosa característica deste edificio.

Continuamos hacia el punte de Westminster, WESTMINSTER BRIDGE, donde puedes hacer bonitas fotos del Big Ben y su edificio desde otra perspectiva.

Una vez cruzado el puente puedes encontrar una de las más famosas atracciones de esta ciudad , el London EYE. El London eye tiene la noria con el punto más alto de Europa y de esta ciudad.

Desde el London Eye fuimos rumbo a la TOWER BRIDGE. Este puente es una icona y símbolo de esta ciudad, antes era una forte para proteger el viejo castillo de los monarcas. Tenéis que verlo porque es muy bonito.

El siguiente paso fue la visita de Covent Garden que está situado en el centro de la ciudad . Covent Garden es una de la zonas más populares del centro y todo asocian este barrio con la ROYAL ÓPERA HOUSE. Este barrio también está bastante interesante para comer, beber o hacer shopping 🛍.

Hablando de shopping, si estáis interesados (claro que si 😝😝) tenéis que dar un paseo en OXFORD STREET, que además de ser una de las calles principales de la ciudad es famosa para lo shopping de lujo y para ser uno del los centros de compra más grandes de Europa .

Después de hacer alguna compra decidimos de volver a casa.

DAY 3

En nuestro último día nos quedo todavía mucho que ver entonces decidimos ir directos a Camden Town. Este barrio es como si fuera un gran mercado con un montón de variedad de ropa, comida, espectáculos callejeros (pensamos que es El Barrio más extravagante de la ciudad).

Aquí podéis encontrar los platos de todos los rincones del mundo entonces un consejo es: COMER Y PROBAR ALGO NUEVO Y SEGURAMENTE 🤤 DELICIOSO

Camden Town es también el sitio donde podéis encontrar eventos de música en vivo de jazz y/o otros tipos de música. Es muy bonito de visitar y también podéis encontrar un montón de souvenires para regalar a vuestro amigos y familia.

Hemos estado toda la mañana en este barrio porque nos gustó mucho (nos encantan los mercados 😜) hay muchas cosas que ver, comer y tiendas para ver como el famoso CYBERDOG.

Después de comer en Camden Town decidimos de visitar El Barrio de NOTTING HILL.

NOTTING HILL está situado al oeste de Londres y estamos seguros que vosotros lo conocéis ya por la famosa peli con la actriz Julia Roberts. Notting Hill es conocido para ser un barrio cosmopolita con bonitos restaurantes y casas Victorianas. Antes os mencionamos lo que es considerado uno de los mejores FISH AND CHIPS en esta ciudad, está en el medio del barrio y se llama THE FISH HOUSE.

 

fish and chips londonCon NOTTING HILL acabamos nuestro tour de 3 días en Londres y nos gustó mucho!

Es una ciudad hermosa y recomendamos visitarlas aunque sea por corta estancias😜✌️
