Your Perfect Day In London

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather and a fabulous day taking in the best our wonderful capital city has to offer...

There’s so much to pack into a London day trip: shopping, galleries, exhibitions, iconic buildings, to say nothing of those all-important breaks for coffee, lunch or cocktails. Our ideas are sure to help you turn a good day into a truly unforgettable experience, though you?ll need some decent reserves of stamina ? and a pair of comfy shoes ? if you?re going to get the very most from your day.

We reckon it makes sense to minimise your travelling once you?re in town. Don?t waste time on busy tube trains or slow-moving buses. Pick an area, do your research and you?re sure to find loads to see and do. Another vital rule is to eliminate queuing wherever possible. After all, no one gained much from standing in line for a table, a sale or a show. So plan well, book ahead and you?ll maximise your enjoyment.

Our selection of events, venues and activities spans all times of the day. We?ve done our best to offer a good selection of locations, themes and prices, so all you need do is keep your fingers crossed for good weather and a fabulous day taking in the best our wonderful capital city has to offer…

Design adventure at the Serpentine Pavilion

Over the past 15 years the Serpentine Pavilion has become an international site for architectural experimentation, presenting inspirational temporary structures by some of the world’s greatest architects. A much-anticipated landmark in London each summer, the Pavilion is one of the top-ten most visited architectural and design exhibitions in the world. Spanish architects SelgasCano are designing the 15th Serpentine Pavilion. The award-winning studio, headed by José Selgas and Lucía Cano, is the first Spanish architecture practice to be asked to design the temporary Pavilion on the Serpentine?s lawn in London?s Kensington Gardens.

Watch out for it between 25 June and 18 October.
