London is steeped in history and is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking to find out more about not only its past, but how its culture has evolved too. Of course, with so many places to visit and so much to see and do, you will need to put together an itinerary in order to squeeze everything into this one trip.
So, read on to see just three must-visit locations for history fanatics in London.
The British Museum
Ah yes, the British Museum. Situated on Great Russell Street in London, and renowned for its collection of prehistoric, ancient and more modern tokens of history, this is definitely one to pop on your list. Not only will you be able to explore and discover culture and history from all over the world, but also right here in London, with countless treasures on display for you to see and read about.
Ten Bells Pub
After a walk (or trek) around The British Museum, it may be time for a spot of lunch, and what better destination to choose than the Ten Bells Pub. It, itself, conceals dark secrets and history within its walls; notably that of infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, where he and his victims are believed to have frequented.
Serving lovely lunches and equally delicious dinners when saving one of the best London experiences until last, the Ten Bells Pub in Spitalfields is another must-see during your London trip.
Jack the Ripper Tour
As night begins to fall, what better way to wrap up your historical London trip than with a Jack the Ripper tour! Perfect for those who don’t mind a spook, but love learning about the East End’s own past. Our walk is infused with facts and we use the latest technology, known as Ripper Vision, to inject life into our tour.
Ripper Vision allows visitors to learn visually, as well as listening to the gruesome facts as we explore famous murder sites, and we remain the only tour company to use this kind of technology too.
So, these are just a few suggestions for a day out in London for history fanatics. Do you have any more must-visit locations to add to the list?
