As the summer holidays are soon approaching many students will be free from school with plenty of spare time.

Some of the luckier ones will be heading off to enjoy the sun in a different country on holiday. Those of us who are stuck in London do not need to fret, we still have loads we can do! 

Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, there has been an increased struggle to be able to find things to do in London. However, as the restrictions are becoming more and more relaxed, there has been an influx of activities to part take in this summer. 

Here are a few: 

London is very notorious for its museums and art galleries, many of which are free. South Kensignton houses three of the most famous free museums and galleries in London. You can take an escalator into a red planet or experience the 1996 Kobe earthquake through the simulator in The Natural History Museum. You can explore the different cultures and much more at the V&A and get hands on with the interactive activities at the Science Museum. Ensure you visit them earlier in the day as they all close by 5pm. 


Another great way to spend time in London is by enjoying some fresh air with family and friends in a lovely garden or park. London parks are great for socialising and getting that needed vitamin D. Kew Gardens is a lovely park to visit as it has an 18 metres high tree top view walk attraction, this allows you to walk through a maze of towering trees and feel as if you are one with nature. There are also the classic Hyde and Regents parks in London that allow you to also visit the London shopping scene which is located not too far at Oxford Street. If you don’t feel too comfortable with being outdoors, you can also visit the free Sky Gardens exhibit near Bank station, from which you can spot many London attractions such as The Shard and much more. 


London also has plenty of energising activities that make for a fun day out. Queens London, Skate Dine Bowl allows for people to enjoy three different activities all in the comfort of one building. People can go from skating on ice, hitting strikes all the way to winning big on claw machines. Another option is heading down to the O2 arena to enjoy some Toca Social, a football lover's dream! 


London is one the most active and enjoyable cities to be stuck in for the summer! With plenty of time there's plenty more to do and there is much more to be discovered. Get discovering!
