One of the most visited cities in the world, London should be on every traveller’s list to visit at least once. With so much to do and see, Samuel Johnson’s quote that “a man who is tired of London is tired of life” still rings true.

While the crowds flock to attractions such as the Tower of London or the London Eye, visitors looking for something different should head to Sir John Soane’s Museum. Just 10 minutes walk from the British Museum, Sir John Soane’s house is preserved almost exactly as it was when he died in 1837. He was an avid collector and had so many paintings that he had to install special shutters on the walls so he could flip between several artworks hung in the same space.

Another classic London experience is a boat ride on the Thames. The cheapest option is to take a commuter ferry but a more unique version is to take a powerboat trip. Roar along in a high speed jet boat past some of London’s best known sights. This is a guided tour for thrill seekers!
