The London Bucket List
10 things to do before you die/leave London
Have YOU done all of these?!…
1. GET yo’SELF to the museum boy!
You might have seen some serious shiz on your school trips – But London has some of the best museums in the world, and the best part about them—they are FREE! Visit the V&A, British Museum, Natural history Museum, or the Science Museum and witness some of the most beautiful art and artifacts in the world!!
PROTIP: Go hung-over, for extra wow factor!
2. Eat POSH!! – AFTERNOON TEA
Around 4 o’clock, before the evening party starts, an English tradition is to sit about and have afternoon tea. Enjoying sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries and cakes is a great way to relax before a crazy night out… You can even enjoy this tradition with a bit of bubbly!
PROTIP: Picking the stronger tea gives you that extra buzz to carry on long into the night!
3. MAYHEM IN LONDN @ Night – 1 BIG NIGHT OUT PUB CRAWL
The biggest pub crawl in the UK, running 365 days a year – 1 Big Night Out Pub crawl is the best pub crawl in London. It’s a great mix of students, backpackers and people just looking to party.
You know the score, and you’ve probably been on it! Give yourself a great big tick in this box – You’ve crawled with the best, and you deserve it!
PROTIP: Have you been on a weekend when we go to Ministry Of Sound or Café De Paris? Look out for emails when we let you know the special dates!
4. A GOOD OLD KNEES UP – get down your ENGLISH PUB
Trade that Swedish model sipping cocktails, and that swanky European Business man for two good old cockney mucker’s swigging good old fashioned grog. Enter one of London’s cozy pubs for some traditional Fish and Chips and Cider! You’ll not only see incredible interiors, but witness some of London’s most extreme characters who drink and tell remarkable stories!!
PROTIP: The old bank by the Royal courts of Justice near Chancery Lane, is our favorite pub in London – check out www.londonaletrail.com for more info
5. PLAY AROUND IN THE PARKS
London has many beautiful parks and gardens and EVERYONE must experience them before they leave. Whether it be playing ultimate Frisbee in Hyde Park, or gather some friends and play a game of soccer in Regent’s Park, enjoy the green spaces in the middle of the city!
PROPTIP: Footballers amongst you, head to Regents park on Wednesday evenings for an impromptu game of 6 a side that is always on.
6. NAIL THE TOURIST TRAIL
London Bridge, Big Ben, The London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, and many more attractions are a must see while spending time in London! You need that one day acting like an idiot, with a massive map in hand – Getting lost, and getting those cheesy photos taken.
PROTIP: They might be expensive, but the open top buses are great to see the sights in one day – Bring a cheeky hip flask for added value!
7. make poor attempts at THE ENGLISH ACCENT
– AWRIGHT DARLIN’
– ELLO POPPET!
– The rain in spain stays mainly in the plain
– I’m a bloody cockney geeza!
And so on – If you’re in London, and you haven’t had a drunken night doing this, you haven’t lived!
8. Check out some FANCY PLACES that are fucking old
To enjoy a true slice of English heritage and fantastic food it is necessary to go out fine dining— The Ritz, Savoy, and Rules are some of London’s oldest, most traditional restaurants. Suck up the price punch, and spoil yourself to a luxury meal in epic surroundings.
PROTIP: If you act like you belong in these places, you belong there – DO NOT book with the fake names J Bond or K Middleton
9. RICKSHAW RIDING
In London there are several ways to get from place to place, but the most exciting way (and ultimate guilty pleasure) is RICKSHAW RACING! Getting around London has never been so fun, and there’s always a smile to be had knowing that everyone is jealous of you!
PROTIP: Pick one with speaker on it, and tell them to turn up the volume to make it a party rickshaw!
10. THE CHURCH
The ultimate in debauchery and mischief, CHURCH is not for the fainthearted. Starting at noon, ending at four, It’s basically a giant party that’s you wont forget!
Composed of mostly Aussies, Kiwis and Scots, it’s an intense and interesting mix with beer cans in a plastic bag tied to their waist, which actually saves LOTS of time in having to go order more drinks so that you can watch the shows. The sing-along’s are seriously awesome, and if you’re a tad bit shy about nudity, perhaps this place isn’t for you. The stripper, uh….strips. Everything. All of it. His dick comes out all right!
PROTIP: Hardcore church goers make it to the Slug in Wimbledon afterwards to complete the ultimate Sunday session.
And a BONUS ONE: SIT ON THE LION
A bit of a personal fave here – But One MUST thing to do in London is sit on a lion in Trafalgar Square! This gives you a sense of reflection, and a true London moment—SEE THAT EPIC LONDON VIEW! The architecture is beautiful, and what other way to embrace it than to be on one of the lions! Take a deep breath and reflect on being in the best city in the world!
PROTIP: Be careful up there girl! That Lion’s high
