One doesn’t really need a reason to visit London. It  is one of the best cities in the world.There were few unfortunate events that happened this year, but that doesn’t change anything.

I visited two years back and it reminded me much of my own city of Mumbai minus the crowds of course. It was a trip for work purpose , but I also made time to explore the city a bit. I do however want to visit again someday!

I have made a list of ten reasons one should definitely visit this city, there could be more but this is what I’ve come up with. If you haven’t been there yet or if you’re planning to visit again then this list would definitely be helpful:

  1. History:

    Going through London is like going through a history book. All the monuments, statues, churches etc. some of which were built years back.

      London is home to the Royal Family which resides at Buckingham Palace. You can take a tour (paid obviously) through parts of the palace during Summer. I missed it as I visited on a weekday, but it’s stunning from the outside as well.

    I have a number of friends working in London and I always admire their photographs posted on social media whenever they travel to different places in the city on their day offs. The architecture like what you mentioned is unique and riveting which can’t be found in other countries. One thing I would really try once I get there is the night life and food 🙂

    I agree with you that there’s no actually need a reason to visit London. Aside from it’s one of my bucket lists, I’d really love to see the tower clock and take the red bus to somewhere. I wish London is near and doesn’t need a visa for me !

    I’m from the UK and my sisters lived in London up until recently and I loved to visit for long weekends, although I’m not keen on big cities so wouldn’t want to live there! You’ve got a great top 10 there, I think the biggest attraction for me is the variety of food and drink options and experiences, especially pop up food events!

    Good top 10 list over there. London is definitely one of the best cities in the world, it surely is a metropolitan city that merges all the nationalities together. You did forget one thing which is a favourite of mine! Football 🙂 London is home to some of the top English football clubs and have some awesome stadiums too.

    London amazes me no end for a variety of reasons, the chief one being that it is a very old city. It dates back to the time of Romans. And then, coming back to the modern times, it is also the city of the MI-5 and James Bond. What also amazes me no end about Londoners is that the original British accent is gone and it is now replaced with an all out American accent. Don’t you think so?
