So I'm going to London in the next days for the first time, I only have 3 days, where do I absolutely have to go?

Thanks in advance

C'mon, it's an enormous city, where to start? What sort of things are you interested in? I'm a native Londoner so can make suggestions....
>>
>>1075503
What are the most memorable places you visited in London? Stores, Museums, Galleries, Restaurants, Parks... whatever comes to your mind
>>
If you're looking for a night out theres loads of places in Dalston and shoreditch

Alright thanks

Well, I've lived there for over 10 years so I know lots....

So, one of each of your categories

Stores: Daunt Books on Marylebone High Street (near Bond Street tube)

Museums: The Wallace Collection (which actually is very close to the bookshop I just mentioned, but that's a coincidence)

Galleries: the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens is one of the more interesting places for international contemporary art

Restaurant: Little Bay, Belsize Road, Kilburn, London NW6 (near Kilburn High Road overground or Kilburn Park or West Hampstead tube stations). Delicious, mediterranean-style food run by a Serb, and extraordinarily cheap - a great place to know, with a character all of its own, too.

Parks: Primrose Hill

and a bonus

Districts: Hampstead - specifically the village part, at which Hampstead tube station is at the very centre. Lots of history and character, a few decent pubs (The Holly Bush or the Duke of Hamilton or The Flask probably the best), and the heath, another fine open space nearby.

Seconding The Wallace Collection. Great little collection of swords and art.

Other top picks from last time my gf and I went to London. YMMV I guess
>Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons -
>Afterhours nights at the NHM and Science Museum
>Behind the scenes tour of the NHM

Wales because London is a shithole

Holy shit, thanks a lot. I'll try to get everywhere :)

You don't need a Eurail pass to take the Eurostar to Paris, right?

This is a very good research website for London:

Also plan to do a couple of London Walks (pub tour is great); the evening is good when a lot of museums, etc. are closed:
