Nothing beats an incredible view over a beautiful city! I’m sure we’re not alone in saying that one of our favourite things to do when visiting a new city is to scope out the best vantage points across the city. That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find some of the best views over London. Although there were plenty of places to choose from, these are three of favourite spots that provide the best views of London.
This location is quite the secret, even a few of the locals we asked had never been there before! Just a little walk on from the outskirts of the popular Regents Park is another open garden area. Despite London being a typically flat place, this park has a rather large amount that you can climb, known as Primrose Hill. It’s not hard to miss because it’s probably one of the only hills of its size in London. Make your way up the track to the top and hang out there with the other adventurous souls, most of whom will be enjoying a picnic and listen to some tunes. On a clear day, you’ll be able to make out the London Eye, Gherkin, The Shard and a few other famous tourist landmarks.
This is one of the city hotspots! The Shard is a fancy hotel located in the Tower Bridge area of London. Despite having a viewing deck where you can pay to go up to the top, our personal favourite way to see an amazing view over London at a fraction of the cost is to go and have a drink at one of the various bars such as Aqua Shard. Enjoy a nice cocktail or glass of wine while taking in the beautiful city below you. It’s even more magical around sunset!
The London Eye
You can’t go past a more famous tourist attraction than the London Eye. With tickets starting from around £20, make your way around the eye in a glass pod that provides some incredible views over the Westminster and St Paul’s area. This birds-eye view over London is one not to be missed!
