48 hours in London

A two-day adventure is enough to immerse yourself in England’s great capital city

Discovering London in 48 hours can be a difficult task, but not impossible. Being the capital of one of the Kingdoms with more historical weight in the world, there will always be time to enjoy all the countless activities to do in the big city, even if we lived there. Therefore, below we will share with you a tour to take advantage of this spectacular express trip.

Since we want to enjoy the city to the fullest, it is better to take foresight and make reservations some time in advance if we want to visit a particular monument. To begin with, the main thing is to stay in a centrally located hotel that allows us to move easily by any means of transport. A very good option is the Treehouse Hotel, located in Langham Place, very close to Oxford Street. This peculiar hotel is a building decorated with wood, motivated by sustainable actions.

has in store for us.

Depending on the type of reservation we choose, we can enjoy its cooing restaurant “Madera”, which is located on the 15th floor of the building, with an irresistible organic culinary offer, perfect for any time of the day. To access it, it is not necessary to be staying at the hotel, but it is necessary to make a reservation in advance.

Starting from this point, the first day, we can choose to go in the direction of Oxford Street and head to the Soho area, which is full of stores, as well as the most curious bars and cafes, which stand out for their originality. Thus, we arrived at the intersection of Piccadilly Circus, a space to dazzle us with the power of the big city, and while we’re here, we can not miss a jump in the famous Chinatown. For those visiting London for the first time, I’m sure it’s normal to feel like a little kid in a jungle, as the movement of people and the amount of open places can be intimidating. A very English coffee or tea can be a great option to assimilate and continue the tour.

The recommendation is to get to St James Park, from here, it is essential to make the journey through the great street The Mall, a place that the kings of England travel to reach Buckingham Palace. It is worth remembering that this is where hundreds of fans left roses and gifts when both Princess Diana of Wales and, recently, Queen Elizabeth II died.

For fans of royalty, a visit to this palace is sure to be an experience not to forget. From this point, we are just a few steps away from the historic monuments that represent the English capital, the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben and the London Eye, monuments that with their power and elegance dazzle everyone who sees them with very justified reasons.

Enjoy the sunset or the spectacle of lights in these attractions are other experiences that we can not miss.for the next day, the tour is easier, we will use the means of transport that is more comfortable for us to go to the Tower Bridge, better known as Tower Bridge. For many, this is where the London dream comes true and becomes a reality, because the majesty of the construction will make us kneel, even if the queen is not there.

In London, culture is one of its strong points, so museums and churches in the city will not be lacking. If in the end we have chosen Treehouse as our hotel, very close to here is also the Madame Tussauds London wax museum, where we can take a picture with the royalty or with Donald Donald Trump himself.

In the area there is also the museum and the statue of Sherlock Holmes or the Queen Mary Gardens. To close a night in style, Treehouse houses “The Nest” on top of its Madera restaurant, a rooftop bar worthy of a photo shoot with spectacular 360-degree views of the London skyline. At The Nest, the DJ’s tastefulness is a highlight and proves that the English do know how to have fun.

The variety in the menu also offers the option to dine or enjoy some great cocktails. Although we surely have not been left wanting to continue enjoying London, we already have the photos in the most emblematic places, and with everything we have seen we are surely already planning a return to this splendid city as royal and incredible as its own royalty.
