06 Feb London Calling: Now That We’re Markled for Royalty
Plane fares to London are at rock-bottom prices right now. What’s more, a favorable exchange rate makes traveling to England, as they say, “Brilliant!” Maybe London is calling to the U.S. because Megan has us Markled for royalty? Whatever the reason, this is a great time to book, travel to, and enjoy London and the U.K.
Stop by London Tower and set your timepiece to Big Ben, make funny faces at Buckingham Palace guards, enjoy proper English Tea and crumpets (Mmmmm), and then hop on your broom to visit The Making of Harry Potter ® Warner Bros. studio tour. Besides, this is one of the most iconic cityscapes on the planet. A nice stroll will give you the best up-close views … Oh, and don’t worry about hanging on to your wallet too tightly, the days of the Artful Dodger and his band of merry pickpockets have long since passed.
You’re in London. You’re going to the British Museum. One of the great collections of art and artifacts in the world – including the world’s finest collection of Egyptian relics outside of Egypt. Too much culture? Feel free to grab some bangers and mash in one of the pubs across the street.
King’s Cross Station
You already proved yourself a Wizard by taking advantage of the best-in-years plane fare to get you here. Why not fulfill your destiny? Stop by King’s Cross station to have a look see at Platform 9 3/4, for some photo ops. and to load up on your magic supplies.
Experts will tell you the Tower Bridge is a “combined bascule and suspension bridge.” But who needs that poppycock, anyway? The real reason to visit this storied destination is that it is awesome. Fully restored and upgraded from 2008-2012 puts this critical-use piece of engineering squarely upon the must-visit list.
There are millions of expressions used in everyday speech, few more popular than, “A changing of the guard.” But how many times can you go to where such an expression originated, and watch its source in real-time? Who’s to say? But that doesn’t mean you won’t dig the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.
Tea, biscuits, crumpets … Aside from tea, you might not immediately recognize anything you order, but make no mistake – this authentic English tradition is one to enjoy. Once you’ve enjoyed a true proper/high-team experience, it’s the kind of lovely experience that makes you wonder, “Why don’t WE do that?”
