#BNxVirginAtlantic: Glory Edozien shares 4 Things to Do in London



Hey BellaNaijarais, Glory here!

A few days ago I had the pleasant opportunity to spend 3 magical days in London, thanks to Virgin Atlantic and I wrote all about it here. Now I’m back to share a few things you can get up to while in London.

If there is one city to spend a magical Christmas with friends and family, it’s definitely London.

London has a diverse range of cultures, culinary and shopping experiences and indeed is a top go-to destination for savvy tourists during the yuletide season. But don’t just take my word for it, check out these fun ideas and I am sure you’ll be booking a ticket in a few minutes

  • Accommodation. 

With all the activities to do and see in London, your accommodation must have 3 things; amazing location (close enough to amazing attractions either by walking or a quick taxi ride), great breakfast options, so you can start your day right and homely decor with a touch of modern so you don’t feel homesick!

The Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel on Mercer Street

Smack in the centre of London and a walking distance to London’s best shopping locations such as Convent Garden Piazza (5minutes) and Oxford Circus (10minutes), this hotel offers all the luxuries of a contemporary modern day hotel while still retaining the nostalgic feeling of home.

With 24 hours room services, in-room spa facility, sonic speed internet, and a fitness centre this hotel is certainly your best bet if you want to take part in the action or snuggle up in bed. 

Plus throughout December 2018 and until February 2019, guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast while staying at the hotel. 

The hotel also plays home to Monmouth Kitchen with services an appetising array of Italian and Peruvian dishes and a wide range of cocktails…perfect for either lunch or dinner! Fab!

  • Things to do

The British Museum

If you are looking for one location that has something for everyone and is FREE (some exhibitions may attract a fee)…then look no further than the British Museum. 

Discover special exhibitions, displays and events at the Museum suitable for children and adults alike 

Looking for something with an African feel? No worries….the British Museum also curates collections of material and visual culture relating to indigenous people across the African continent and to the cultures and societies of the diaspora

Hop off and on the Big Bus open-top double Decker bus, at your own pace while having lunch with a friend, doing some shopping in central London, or just to have a relaxed tour of the city!

    So a nearly 150k per room night (which is even the cheapest) is your perfect recommendation? Sometimes you guys just advertise blindly! Mscheww!

      lmaoooooooo. i was literally laughing as i read this. See, here is how you do everything she has said but on a much nicer budget and its even more enjoyable.. for accommodation, just go on air bnb and get yourself one nice self catered accommodation of your choice. You have the added option of cooking anything you want, for someone like me, i always get tired of eating out whilst on vacations so i always look for self catered accommodations.
      Big bus tour is too expensive and not worth it at £33 for adults, get a daily bus pass for say £6-9 max a day and just go to any area you want and take as many buses you want. Heck that’s bus pass fee for several days gan sef (weekly bus pass is thirty something pounds also).. if you are the type that plans well, you can see a lot more this way and you can control it.
      re food and drinks, if you are about that budget life, go to food markets- everything is there for the street food price and they are often always sooo delicious and waay more fun. British musuem is a good call, v&a is fantastic (fashionistas will enjoy this one), natural history (fun for kids), hunterian (this one is slightly creepy)
