My quirky London moments

Over the past 11 years and my numerous visits to London I’ve seen and done more or less all the major touristy things. I’m a creature of habits when it comes to London so no trip to London is complete without seeing some of my old favourites such as Big Ben and the Tower of London or having a drink in my favourite pub in Bayswater. However, London always surprises me with something new, be it a new free attraction or a starry encounter.

So, here’s a list of my quirky London moments

-almost bumping into actors Emma Thompson and Rowan Atkinson in the same day whilst wandering through Hampstead

-pretending to be in a Harry Potter movie at 9 3/4 platform at King’s Cross Station

-trying to find the London stone in the City Of London

-having my photo taken with Peter Pan in the Hyde Park

-searching for film locations from the Notting Hill film (the bookstore and Kenwood House among others)

Kenwood house, London

-talking to Mr Watson at Sherlock Holmes museum

-receiving a certificate for climbing the Monument

-asking the Paddington bear for the directions at Paddington station

-crossing over the River Thames in the cable car

-getting a preview of the new British pounds at the Bank of England museum

-seeing the Tower bridge open up to let the ship pass under

-walking on the glass floor of the Tower Bridge

-having a cold drink at the ice-bar

-enjoying free views of London from the highest garden in the city

Sky garden, London

-being chased by a squirrel in Kensington gardens

-getting asked Are you a tourist guide? when I sheltered off the rain under the Wellington Arch

-dancing the night away from the club with the gorgeous view of Big Ben

This isn’t the complete list because some moments are so special that I don’t want to share them..

Cheers to many more London moments, ordinary or extraordinary! 🙂
