The Top Things to do in London

Little Venice London 1

So, you’ve decided to make the move to London and peruse or build on your teaching career, but when you’ve finished up in the classroom, how can you fill your spare time? You are probably aware of the world-famous landmarks and tourist attractions, but what do you do when you’ve seen them, especially as it is likely that you will be living on a budget. You don’t need to worry, REESON Education is here to help!

Little Venice London

Little Venice is a must, it’s the perfect place to spend your weekend when you’re wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The name, as it suggests, is a play on the world-famous Italian city, Venice.  It is one of the most tranquil places in London, home to quirky canal bars and restaurants; it really is a hidden gem that you can’t miss out on after a stressful week in the classroom.

Local Parks

You are probably surprised to learn that almost 47% of London is taken up by green. It is the home to some of the most beautiful parks where you can enjoy a relaxing stroll on a Saturday morning.

Pie and Mash Shops

Pie and mash. The ultimate English tradition that we guarantee that you will fall head over heels for. We can only imagine the confusion on your face if you’re are reading this before you hit the English turf. But trust us on this one, you need to give it a try!

Take a look at Visit London’s top 7 pie restaurants.

The Christmas Lights

During the festive period, London in magical, you will be taken aback by the beautiful lights that are all around the city, whether it being Selfridges beautifully dressed window or the glistening West End lights.

Secret Bars

Whilst you’re out exploring the city, keep your eye and ears open for one of the secret bars. They’re off the usual beaten track, are quirky and most of all; have an interesting story behind them. By finding one of them, you will be able to delve further into London’s culture and history whilst enjoying a tasty cocktail or pint of ale.

Traditional Pubs

You are probably aware of the famous British pub culture. Catching up with old friends, meeting new people, socialising after work; it all takes place in a good old traditional pub.

One of our favourites is the Cross Keys in Covent Garden.

The perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon is to relax with a Sunday Roast. Where can you find the best in London? In your local pub!
