Vibrant places to be in London (UK)
Foodie fans should head to Borough Market, where they can sample breads, nuts, candy, cheese, and other deliciousness before deciding what to have for lunch. Located underneath the railroad tracks and on the opposite side of London Bridge to The Shard, it offers a view great perspective on this architectural highlight for those willing to look up.
To the north of Borough Market lies the Bankside pathway, which is great for a walk along the river Thames and leads to Tate Modern, a modern art museum which is free to enter. Next to it, you can walk over the impressive Millennium Bridge. Musicians often play on the bridge when the weather is nice, battling for the attention of passersby with the impressive St. Paul’s Cathedral in the background.
Fleet Street and the Strand take you westward toward London’s hip Soho neighborhood. Mostly known for the Covent Garden square with its permanent market hall and day-time street performers, this is one of London’s shopping and theater districts. To the north lies Oxford Street, the busiest and most commercial of London’s shopping streets and avoided at any cost by many locals. But if you are looking for the big retailers like Topshop and Primark, this is the place to be.
More pleasant is a walk in the nearby Hyde Park where Speaker’s Corner still attracts people wanting to share their ideas with the world and forms a border between the rush of city life and the calm of the park. It is the perfect place to catch your breath before continuing your explorations.
