London is the heart of England, and so it’s no wonder that it’s full of wonderful and wacky places to visit. Sure, the London Eye is fun, and Big Ben is beautiful, but once you’ve seen them once, you’ve seen them one thousand times. If you’re planning a trip to London and want it to be a weekend full of fun, wacky, and unique experiences, then you’ve come to the right place.
You’re going to need somewhere to lay your head in London, so we may as well start with a hotel suggestion. If you’re a fan of all things vintage, then Ace Hotel in London is the perfect place for you. Ace Hotel offers a playful design and is decked out with vintage furniture. In fact, some rooms even come stocked with a selection of vinyl records and turntables, as well as an acoustic guitar, which makes it the perfect place to stay if you’re musically inclined.
You’re also going to need somewhere to eat on your weekend away, which is why I present to you Basrah Lounge. As well as preparing a large variety of delicious food, such as pizza, burgers, and shawarma, Basrah Lounge also offers London’s original Shisha Lounge. Here you can get shisha of all different flavours, including Oreo Mint, which will is sure to be unique enough for your London getaway.
Just because a large percentage of the population has Coulrophobia (a phobia of clowns), it doesn’t necessarily mean that you do. If you’re a little braver than most and want to visit the most random museum on the planet, then perhaps the Clowns Gallery-Museum is for you. It opens on the first Friday of every month and displays the costumes and props used by some of the most famous clowns to come out of Britain.
Have you ever dreamt of riding a boat down The River Thames? Yes? Well, I’m not surprised; Plenty of people have. But have you ever thought about riding a cow-themed canoe down the Thames? I thought not. Moo Canoes offers a unique opportunity to ride a cow print decorated boat down the famous river, and you don’t even have to have any boating experience in your back pocket.
Gorilla Circus Flying Trapeze School
If you’re somewhat of a thrill seeker and have always been fascinated by trapeze circus acts, then you might want to consider visiting the Gorilla Circus School on your weekend away. Like with the Moo Canoes, you don’t need any experience, so it’s perfect for a first-time, unique experience. And don’t worry, you will be held up at all times with safety cables so that you will be perfectly safe.
If you’re going to go away for the weekend, then you may as well do something once-in-a-lifetime on your trip. Luckily, London offers much more than a weekend full of experiences for you to try out. In fact, London is so action-packed, that you may even want to consider staying for a week or two, instead of just a weekend.
