Top Things To Do On Your Very First Visit To London

I still remember the exact thoughts that ran through my head when I arrived in London for the very first time. "Oh it's cold, but not that cold. It's a refreshing kind of cold, don't you think?" when walking out of the airport. I remember seeing the houses through the windows of the tube and smiling from ear to ear because they were the kind of houses that I only ever saw on the property renovation shows I use to watch on the Lifestyle channel. Like a kid in a candy store; it's so exhilarating visiting a new destination for the very first time.If you're travelling to London on your very first visit, here's a few top things to see and do:Related: London Instagram DiaryTop things to see and do in London via the love assembly
