    Visit Little Venice

    Just as the name suggests, Little Venice is London’s answer to the famous Italian City and renowned for being one of the capital’s prettiest locations. Bring along your favourite person, whether that be your Mum, Sister, best friend or boyfriend and enjoy lunch at one of the many waterside cafes, pubs and restaurants after you’ve done a bit of boat spotting, of course.

    Go wild at Oxygen Freejumping

    If you’re more of the energetic type then you should definitely dedicate a couple of hours to Oxygen Free-jumping. With over 150 interconnected trampolines, you can bounce of the walls, flip upside down, and even give the wacky obstacle course a go. There’s got to be worse ways to burn a few calories, right?

    Explore Kew Gardens Lates

    Every trip to London deserves to include a visit to Kew Gardens and now that their late night events have just restarted there’s no excuse not to attend. This month they’re holding the Orchid Festival in honour of the vibrant flora of Brazil during its carnival season. Explore the gardens, fall in love with all the floral beauty, and attend all the inspiring talks and samba sessions Kew Gardens are also holding to mark the event.

    Munch on pie and mash

    See yourself as quite the foodie? Then there’s no way you can go to London without trying its most-famous delicacy – pie and mash! From Rules in Covent Garden to Pieminister in Farringdon, you’ve definitely got plenty of choice, just remember to save room for the big serving of traditional liquor that’s sure to be poured over the top.

    Become mesmerised by the Kyoto Gardens

    If you’re a sucker for a pretty landscape and a good Instagram opportunity then the Kyoto Japanese Garden quietly tucked away in swanky Kensington should definitely be on your ‘things to do in London’ list. Full of winding paths and awe-inspiring statues it’s a stunning place for a stroll whoever you’re with. There’s even peacocks!

    Go for a giggle

    Everyone loves a laugh, don’t they? So why don’t you and your favourite pal go and enjoy a night full of fun at Stratford’s Theatre Royal. As London’s longest-running free comedy night, it’s a great place to catch new acts and upcoming talents. Who knows, you may even up spotting the next Alan Carr.

    See balls fly at Bounce

    Whether you’re a ping pong pro or just like to play for fun, a visit to the newly opened Bounce bar in Shoreditch is a must-do. With good music, great pizza and some cool UV lighting, we couldn’t recommend this place enough for a night out for two.

    Cross the Thames in a cable car

    If the London Eye’s a bit predictable, then we wholeheartedly recommend having a go on the Emirates Air Line. Strictly speaking, it’s supposed to be a form of public transport but, seeing as you hardly ever have to queue, or share your car with someone else, it’s become quite the tourist attraction and offers an incredible view of the city. Plus, seeing as it only costs just over £6 for a round-trip makes it quite the bargain.

Of course, Madame Tussauds, Planet Hollywood and the Tower of London are all on the cards too. In fact, if you book your coach with us, not only will you get a 2 for 1 fare, but 2 for 1 on various attractions too. Bonus, right?
