The Red Phone Boxes

London is the capital city of England, with the River Thames running through it. It is steeped in history, full of interesting architecture and offers many exciting things to do for the solo traveller. London is packed with wonderful places to eat, with cuisines from all over the world to choose from. Here are a selection of my favourite photos of London I have taken on my visits…

1. Architecture

London’s architecture is extremely varied, from modern skyscrapers, Victorian houses, Georgian Squares and listed buildings.

2. Activities

I have enjoyed and can recommend some wonderful activities in London. There are many fantastic museums, some of which have a low profile. Cookery courses are great solo activities to get involved in too. I can recommend a cheese making course and an Indian cookery course so far. Walking tours are fun and can be tailor made to suit your needs if self-guided. There are, of course, all the well known activities such as Madame Tussauds, The London Eye and London Aquarium. For further details, check out my page of recommended solo activities.
