10 things to do in London

A couple of weeks ago I was putting together some ideas of things to do in London, for some friends who are visiting. As I did that, I thought it would be fun to share my top 10 things to do in London – that would be perfect for a first time visit.

Há tempos estava a preparar umas ideias de coisas para fazer em Londres, para umas amigas que vêm cá. Enquanto fazia isso, lembrei-me que seria giro partilhar as minhas 10 coisas preferidas para fazer em Londres – que são perfeitas para quem vem pela primeira vez.

Inspired by my friend Andie’s post ’10 things you should do in Lisbon’, I put together a list of 10 quintessentially London things…

  1. Visit the Sky Garden
  2. Have a coffee at the terrace bar on the 6th floor of Tate Modern
  3. Wander the Southbank between Tate Modern and Embankment
  4. Grab a coffee and people watch in Covent Garden
  5. Take a Thames Clipper to Greenwich
  6. Explore Hyde Park (and see if you spot a squirrel or two!)
  7. Grab some food at Borough Market
  8. Wander Portobello Road on market day
  9. Buy flowers at Columbia Road Flower Market
  10. Explore the old streets of Spitalfields
  • Inspirada pelo post ’10 things you should do in Lisbon’ da minha amiga Andie, fiz uma lista de 10 coisas muito londrinas…

    1. Visitar o Sky Garden
    2. Tomar café no bar do 6o andar da Tate Modern
    3. Passear à beira rio entre a Tate Modern e Embankment
    4. Tomar café e observar as pessoas em Covent Garden
    5. Apanhar um Thames Clipper para Greenwich
    6. Explorar Hyde Park (e ver se encontram um esquilo ou dois!)
    7. Comer qualquer coisa no Borough Market
    8. Passear em Portobello Road em dia de mercado
    9. Comprar flores no mercado de Columbia Road
    10. Explorar as ruas (e casas) antigas de Spitalfields

    Have you ever done any of the above? What’s your favourite?

    Já fizeram alguma das coisas referidas acima? Qual foi a vossa preferida?
