how to enjoy the new year in London - guest post by Michelle

Seeing London in the New Year:
London is one of the world’s busiest and liveliest cities, and when you are someone who wants to have a great time in this city in the the new year, there is plenty to do. Check out some of these experiences that you should consider if you are visiting London.
Sight-Seeing Bus
A sight-seeing bus is definitely on the touristy side of things that you can do, but the truth is that it is a great experience. A sight-seeing bus puts you above the general traffic, and this can give you a calm and safe place from which to see the city. If you are someone who is deeply invested in learning more about the city and not getting buffeted by traffic as you do so, this is definitely an experience you need to consider.

Go to the Theatre
London is a city that is known for its performances. Whether you want to take in a fantastic foreign film or you are more invested in making sure that you don’t miss your favorite musical theater performance, you need to pick up theatre tickets as soon as you get to town. There is always something playing, so whether you choose a tried-and-true favorite your choose something entirely unexpected, you’ll find that there are is always something going on.

Head to Kensington Gardens
London is wonderful, but it is also quite busy and quite crowded. London has plenty of buildings that are hundreds of years old, and sometimes, the experience can be a little suffocating if you are not used to it. When you want to take a break from the city, consider heading to Kensington Gardens. This is a great place to surround yourself with a little bit of greenery and to simply relax for a bit.

Explore On Foot
London is a walker’s city, and though there are plenty of people who go everywhere by Tube, it is definitely worth your while to explore on foot. Not only will it help you get some exercise as you travel, it can also introduce you to shops and experiences that you never considered before. London has a lot going on at the street level, and if you simply bustle from the Tube straight to your destination, you could miss a lot.

London is a city that has a lot going on, and if you are someone who is deeply invested in experiencing it fully and learning more about it, take a few moments to see what is going around you.
