Traveling to London is always a good plan, a perfect destination for a getaway where you can be enveloped by its frenetic pace and its wonderful parks. With the purpose of exploring it without spending a penny, we launched ourselves into its streets.
London at street level
- Strolling through the streets and avenues of London is, in itself, an experience that clearly defines what is the hive of a great city. Beyond its main commercial arteries such as Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street or – Carnaby Street, among others, there are charming and free enclaves where you can wander and stop.
Enviable views and futuristic airs when crossing the Millennium Bridge, which links the City with Bankside.
- The iconic Abbey Road zebra crossing that the Beatles immortalized on their 1969 self-titled album.
Stroll through Covent Garden to enjoy its artisan stalls, its atmosphere and the many street artist shows located around the market.
- It will not be until 2021 when every day at 12 o’clock the chimes of Big Ben can be heard again. However, every trip to London deserves a walk around its surroundings and, of course, in the age of social networks, upload a photo with it.
Parks and Gardens in London
