Things to Do in London on Foot

London is the most visited spot in the UK. People in and out of the country come in every day to get a look at the beautiful city and all the activities and entertainment it holds within. There’re always new businesses opening up that hope they can be the ones that attract all the tourists. However, one thing about London is, it’s so populated that there’s traffic every day; not to mention the taxis are definitely not cheap! So, what are some fun, careless activities you can do in London on foot?

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds London is an interactive wax museum with more than 190 lifelike wax figures on display. This is one of the tourists’ favourite places to go. Both children and adults love this tour as it includes so many famous faces adored by the public. From Freddie Mercury to Ariana Grande, to Beyonce, they have everyone’s favourite artists. But it’s not just musicians and celebrities they include – they also have Star Wars and Marvel characters, and even the royal family. The fun never stops at Madame Tussauds- this is your chance to shine in the ultimate fame experience.

The Jack the Ripper Tour

One of the best activities to do in your summer holiday in London is the Jack the Ripper Tour. If you’re into crime podcasts and documentaries, you’ll love this tour. Not only do you get a beautiful tour around London, but you also learn about the gruesome history the streets hold. More recently, you can take the tour with Ripper-Vision. This is a new approach where projectors put up images on the walls around the Whitechapel streets so you can better imagine the events of this gory tale.

Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square is a public square that features some of London’s top attractions. This is the perfect place to go on foot as you can visit a range of beautiful statues and monuments, such as the Trafalgar Square lion- four bronze lion statues in the famous square which have been there since 1867. There are also two spectacular Trafalgar Square fountains which many gather around. But that’s not it, there’s still more you can see! There are a range of magnificent art galleries such as the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery. And if you get hungry, you can take a look at any of the several cafes and restaurants in the Square.

Borough Market

Borough Market is one of the oldest and most cherished food markets in the UK. It’s best to go on an empty stomach because I guarantee when you get there, you’ll want to try everything. The market includes all kinds of different foods from cultures across the world. You can indulge in French, Ethiopian, Spanish foods and lots more. It’s not only food, you can also go and grab a drink- whether that be coffee or beer, you can never run out of options at the market. This market is so famous that it’s always got crowds overflowing.


If you’re looking for a good time out with the family on foot, London is the perfect spot. It includes so many different attractions, all in a similar area, so you can easily walk from one to another. It includes the perfect entertainment for kids to keep them happy for the day. There’s even Sea Life London or Shrek’s Adventure London. However, even if you don’t want to bring the kids along, London includes many beautiful sites that you can enjoy with your partner or friend.
