A busy guide to Central London
The funny thing about the tube map is that it makes the Big Smoke seem bigger than it actually is. For example, I used to frequently walk the 20 minutes between Kennington (not to be confused with Kensington) and Waterloo and Piccadilly Circus is but a stone’s throw away from Leicester Square and Oxford Circus.
So while it may look like there is a lot to cover, you can in fact squeeze a lot more in than you may think, especially if you map out your choices beforehand.
As a Londoner of two and a half years, even some of the most ‘touristy’ places still hold some significance for me. Mostly because they are a subtle reminder of a dream that once seemed monumental.
So here it is, in particular order, some pick and mix choices to see in London:
Victoria & Albert Museum - for the art and design shot.
Hyde Park - for the London summer shot.
Piccadilly Circus - for the Sherlock shot.
Leicester Square - for the red carpet shot.
Oxford Circus - for the fashion blogger shot.
Burlington Arcade - for the designer shot.
Covent Garden - for the elegant shot.
The London Eye - for the iconic tourist shot.
Knightsbridge - for the posh shopper shot.
Kensington Palace - for the other royalty shot.
Tower of London - for the historic shot.
Tower Bridge - for the film shot.
London Bridge - for the song shot.
Brick Lane - for the hipster shot.
Sky Garden - for the lofty shot.
The Shard - for the highest-point-in-Europe shot.
Baker Street - for the other Sherlock shot.
Primrose Hill - for the wide shot.
Is there anywhere else that you would add?
