Historic London & The Places To Visit


My next Blogging stop is London, and this is going to be pretty difficult for me, as there is so much to see and do on your London Stag Do. London is a city that has really had to fight to stay alive, from the great fire of London to the Blitz. it really is amazing that any original buildings are still standing. Moving on from that, I’m just going to quickly mention some of the more obvious things to see, Tower Bridge, Houses of Parliament, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, The London Eye, I think you get the picture. Anyway now some places you may or may not know about, that could be worth your time, if you have any that is.

Madame Tussauds

For all of you that do not know, Madame Tussauds is a Wax Work Museum, the most famous of all Museums of this kind in fact. You have probably seen some pictures of these awesome Wax Work Models around the internet. This Museum in one form or another has been around since the 1800s, and was first opened by the founder and Wax Sculptor, Marie Tussaud (hence the name) I think pretty much every famous person now has a Wax twin in this Museum, and they are all amazing pieces of art that really do look the real person.

Natural History Museum

If you have ever been or still are intrigued by Dinosaurs or any other Natural History, then you should consider paying the Natural History Museum a visit. It’s free as well so there is no real excuse not to go here. One of the most famous and certainly most eye catching of all the exhibits is known as Dippy, Dippy is a 32 m long replica Dinosaur skeleton situated within the central hall. I’m not really sure why they chose the name Dippy, but Dippy the Dinosaur does have a nice ring to it. Other than that, there are 70 million items within 5 main collections at this museum, but don’t let that put you off as you are not forced to view all of the collections, just the ones that interest you.

Wembley Stadium Tour 

90 years ago, almost to the day (as of this writing) one of the world’s most famous football stadiums opened its gates for the first time. That stadium is now known to me and you as Wembley, but it was demolished back in 2003 to make way for the new 90,000 capacity Stadium which stands on the same ground. This stadium in either form has an outstanding history. It was here that England won the 1966 World Cup, and of course the on-going tradition of the FA Cup final. I’m not sure on the normal cost of the tour, but if you are going on a London Stag Do This weekend (27th – 28th of April) than it is only £1.50 per person as the stadium celebrates its 90th birthday on Sunday the 28th of April. 

The View

The Shard is a new Sky Scraper in London and is the tallest building in Europe, and right at the top of this tower is a viewing platform adequately named ‘The View’ which is apparently twice as high as any other viewing platform in London. You do have to buy a ticket to see this amazing view, but all tickets run by date and time so there are never any queue’s and it is never crowded, so in my opinion that has to be worth a visit.
So that concludes some of the Places I think you should visit on your London Stag Do, before you metaphorically paint the town red and after you have done one of Gents Events’ awesome Activities, so if you haven’t already, give our Party Planners a bell on 0115 941 5282 or go to our Contact Us to enquire
