As much fun as the nightlife can be, it’s important to note that there is no shortage of things to do in London any time of day. The daytime scene is thriving, from great shopping and bustling outdoor plazas to historical landmarks and spectacular royal parks.
Londoners don’t see the sun as much as they’d like, so they pounce on every opportunity to take advantage of the peaceful, well-manicured parks and their acres of lush greenery – the perfect refuge to enjoy a picnic, get some exercise, recover from the previous night’s partying, or enjoy various events.
Shoppers, meanwhile, will also have more than enough things to do, what with all the world-famous department stores, high-end boutiques, and mainstream retail stores that line the streets, not to mention the city’s celebrated outdoor markets that sell everything from household goods and fresh produce to clothing, jewelry, and antiques.
If that’s not enough, there are plenty of outdoor squares in London brimming with street entertainers, shops, and restaurants, as well as wonderful walks along the Thames and tons of historical sites to see.
