If you are taking a London tour for the first time, there are a lot of places for you to see in this massive capital city. Buckingham Palace, the British Museum and the Tower of London are just some of the iconic attractions that you cannot miss at any cost. However, instead of just hopping on a bus, you should glide along London’s canals or cruise down the River Thames to make your London tours more fun and memorable.
As soon as you reach London, the first thing you should do is to take London’s Underground Northern line. You should take the Underground to the Archway Station from where you can walk through Waterloo Park and exit onto Swain’s Lane. After crossing the Swain’s lane you would reach the Highgate Cemetery. The Cemetery was opened over 170 years ago and is being restored and looked after by the friends of Highgate Cemetery (FOHC). It’s a must-visit place for every tourist on tour of London.
If you want to capture the spirit of old London, you should take a cruise along the River Thames. You should exit Westminster Underground in order to board the ferry at Westminster Pier. The Thames Cruise will take you passed Parliament and the renowned Big Ben.
You can’t leave without visiting the Regent’s Canal. For that, you would have to hire a private charter narrow boat. However, you can also choose to hop on a London waterbus if you prefer. You will be taken across the Canal that stretches from Paddington to Limehouse. You will be allowed to take photos during your whole journey so don’t forget to bring your camera along!
