How long to stay in England – London
If you plan to go to London, I recommend you stay in the city for at least six days.
At first glance this amount of days may be a lot for one place and being in Europe, but it isn’t.
London has a lot of history to tell, there are many museums, gastronomy and of course the nightlife, all of this including the most visited places in the city.
But if you’re passing through the city quickly, you can stay in the city for four days.
This time will be enough to see the city’s monuments, visit specific and touristic regions, but not all, in addition to experiencing various typical restaurants and discovering the city’s nightlife.
- Big Ben: Start the day early and visit Big Ben, the famous clock built between 1840 and 1860, it is located on the banks of the River Thames, where you will find other sights of the city.The parliament clock is one of the biggest sights in London and you wouldn’t have been to the land of the queen if you didn’t visit this place. It is located in the city center and forms part of the Palace of Westminster, another tourist spot.
- Westminster Abbey Monastery: Westminster Abbey Monastery is the most famous cathedral in the United Kingdom and you should definitely stop by. Built in the 11th century, this is where the royal coronation has always taken place, as well as being the setting that hosts all royal weddings.In addition to giving masses, the church also has several scientists, doctors and famous people buried there.
