Quote: London was my first trip to Europe, and words cannot describe how wonderful it was. I LOVED every moment of every day. My two favorite moments were standing in front of Stonehenge and taking in all the sights of the National Gallery museum.

A Midsummer Night's London

Overview

London is a fantastic city for everything. With everything rom shopping to the arts, it is a place with history, a tourist destination, a great party city, and a totally lovable culture. The highlight of London is just being immersed into the English culture. Having tea, relaxing the in the park, and walking everywhere are every-day things for the English, and being able to do that as a tourist felt so real and genuine. There are lots of opportunities to not be a total tourist. For one thing, go exploring the many neighborhoods of London and eat at dive places that are way small and sit like a handful of people. Go lie out at a near park and read a good book. There are so many things to discove...Read More

Wagamama

Restaurant

There are a couple of these restaurants all over London. It's mostly a noodle place, and it's really good. The service is efficient, fast, and friendly. I even bought a shirt from this place.

National Gallery

Attraction

Quote:
This museum is great in size and nature. I was only able to see the East wing of it, and most of it was rushing through to find the one picture that I wanted to see: Arnolfini's wedding by Jan Van Eyck. I have taken two art classes and ever since have been dying to see it, and I couldn't believe my luck when I finally did. It was totally unbelievable and amazing.

Stonehenge was one of the highlights of my trip to London. It's about a two-hour drive to Salisbury but well worth it. Just the sight of all the rocks right in front of you is truly indescribable. Seeing things that you have spent many years learning while growing up is like icing on the cake. I enjoyed Stonehenge for that exact reason. I will never forget the feeling of standing in front of it.

It's three floors of bars, lounges, and dance floors, with a very eclectic crowd and tons of hip partiers. I had a lot of fun drinking, meeting people from all over Europe, and dancing. It was not the best music I would've liked to dance to, but it was doable.

Attraction | "The Gardening Club"

This club is small and intimate but has great music, meaning hip-hop. Lots of people on Monday night and a good crowd. I danced the night away and drank here and there. I would definitely go there again.
