London is one of those cities which is packed with things to do and see. If you’re planning to visit, you may be wondering exactly how you’ll narrow these down and fit everything in. Luckily, we’ve got the lowdown on the best things to do in London this year. Ready? Let’s get started:
High tea is a must if you’re in London. And there are plenty of great options to choose from- whether you’d like to dress up and go all out, or simply grab a bite in between seeing the sights. If you’re planning the former, be sure to book in advance- particularly if you’re visiting during a busy period. High tea is a London phenomenon, and popular with tourists from all around the world, so plan ahead so you don’t miss out.
London has thousands of pubs, and you could never see them all. You can, however, see some of the best and most popular by taking a pub crawl. www.excess-baggage.com has released an excellent infographic about the #PerfectPubCrawl for visitors. If you’re only in town for a night, or stopping over from a flight, you can leave your baggage and head out for a true London experience. The pub crawl suggested in this infographic includes Cosy Kettle, The Boot, Mabel’s Tavern, The Skinner’s Arms, The Rocket, and more.
Head to Buckingham Palace, and be sure to take a camera so you can film the changing of the guard. This is an excellent place to see, and you can also wander the area- enjoying the park and the surrounding estates across the road. Be sure to check out some of the shops around here if you’re looking for some souvenirs. You can easily get here via the tube, and there are stations surrounding the area.
Bricklane is one of the best places to wander in London. The best part is the artwork, and you can find incredible paintings and graffiti throughout the area. This is also a cool place for browsing little shops, and you’ll find plenty of bars for happy hour around here. Don’t forget to work up and appetite- this is the best area if you like Indian food, and you’ll find people on the streets aiming to lure you into their restaurants with the best deals. If you’re planning to eat around here on a Friday or Saturday night, be sure to make reservations in advance.

A road trip is arguably the best way to see Europe. Not only can you choose your own itinerary, but you can deviate from that itinerary whenever you run into other travelers who tell you about that great site you simply must see.
While you can’t really go wrong with travel anywhere in Europe, there are a few #Roadtrips you simply shouldn’t miss out on.
Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse, Austria
Phew, that’s certainly a mouthful. This road trip is best in either late spring or early summer, and the route is closed from November to May. This is known as one of the most scenic road trips in Europe, and enjoy incredible Austrian architecture, rocky cliff faces, and 37 different mountain peaks.
Route 500, Germany
You’ve probably heard of the Black Forest, and this road trip takes you right through it. This is one of the oldest and most treasured roads in Germany, and there’s plenty to do along the way- from thermal springs to castles.
Troll’s Path is packed with winding roads, and these twists and turns give you plenty of views of a 1,000-meter waterfall. This is just a one-lane roadmaking it treacherous, however, the sights make it well worth it.
Ring of Kerry, Ireland
This is the type of Irish scenery you see in movies, and you’ll get to gawk at everything from beaches to fishing harbors. Start in Killarney and take the circular trip all the way back along the N72, N70, and N71.
Are you ready for your road trip?
These are just a few of the incredible road trips that await you in Europe. However, it’s crucial that your car is ready before you head off on your adventure. Book your car service at Kwik Fit, so you can ensure it’s up to scratch before you go.
Your car should be serviced every 12,000 miles, and you’ll also need to make sure you’ve paid attention to some of the factors that will keep you safe. These include tyre treads, which should be at least 1.6mm. Otherwise, you could get a fine, but more importantly, you could lose control and grip while driving.
Tyre pressure is also important, and if your tyres haven’t been inflated enough, they can blow- which is seriously dangerous. Be sure to check that you have a spare, and that the spare is also in good condition.
Other things to consider include, checking your coolant, oil, windscreen wipers, and screenwash. Take a map in case you lose service, a first aid kit, and an ice scraper if you’ll be traveling this winter.
