Free time suggestions in London

What experience is not to be missed if you have a free afternoon in London?

  • St. Paul's cathedral is breathtaking. We went there when we had a day free on a tour several years ago. The cathedral was only one of several places we visited. The Tower of London was another. Kensington Gardens are beautiful. A meal in an English Pub is fun, especially if you have a group. Just walking around London and taking it all in is an experience all by itself. Windsor Castle is beautiful. You have to check and see if the queen is in residence before you can tour. Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is also quite a spectacle. You don't have to look far to find great things to see and do in London.
  • I would spend my time in bookstores. London has many great ones.
  • In addition to bookstores (my earlier recommendation), if you are so inclined, attend an evensong at St Martins-in-the-Field or St Paul's Cathedral. A choral one would be a treat.
