London is a huge city that requires prior planning to address it successfully if you only have three day trip. Below I detail the travel guide that I would have liked to read before visiting the city to take advantage of the time in a more effective way and not miss any detail of the many that crowd in the English capital. I hope you find it useful.
Day 1: Victoria Station, Buckingham, Westminster Abbey, Picadilly, Chinatown, Brixton and concert!
The outbound flight had no incidents. We flew with EasyJet, we billed, we queued and everything worked correctly. At 9 we were in Gatwick.
Parliament and Big Ben from Coca Cola London Eye
To get from there to London there are basically 3 options and we tell you in more detail in this article focused on how to get from Gatwick Airport to London. Read this other article if you arrive from Stansted airport.
With the train we arrived at Victoria station where we took the opportunity to buy the London Pass for the three days we would spend in London. A purchase that made us save a lot of money since there are many 2 x 1 offers when presented next to the coupons on the website of the promotion.
Visit Buckingham Palace
The changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace
Walking we climb up Buckingham, where there were already people waiting to see the changing of the guard. We took a look while they did not stop entering the palace and lustful and noble that seemed to emerge from a movie to use. As there was still half an hour left for the ritual (and I was not too moved by the change when I saw it before) we decided to follow our route.
We crossed Green Park and went down the subway to Westminster where they were waiting for us the most typical images of London: Big Ben, London Eye, Westminster Abbey and the House of Parliament.
