Last updated Jul 03, 2023


Our central location at Wilde Aparthotels Covent Garden, surrounded by theatres, outdoor restaurants and newly opened boutiques, is the perfect base to explore this magical city.

Whether you’re looking for a fun family day out, a romantic couple’s retreat or a solo adventure, we’ve got you covered. Rediscover London with our Top Things To Do this summer…  


1. Madame Tussauds

This is what selfie dreams are made of! Bump into celebrities, royalty and sport stars at the world famous wax museum. This is as close as you’ll ever get to the likes of Brad Pitt or Kylie Minogue (without a restraining order!). Meet historical figures and political leaders from around the world and star in immersive experiences with celebs. You might even meet Oscar Wilde himself…

2. London Dungeons

The perfect place to bring misbehaving kids… Expect to laugh and scream your way around the vast underground vaults of County Hall hearing gruesome tales from London’s darker history. Do a Jack the Ripper tour, visit the Torture Chamber or hop on the terrifying ‘Drop Ride’. With live actors and special effects, you have to keep reminding yourself that Sweeney Todd isn't actually standing on front of you.

3. Tate Modern

Time to perfect your chin stroke… The Tate Modern is one of the world’s greatest galleries of contemporary art. Once a giant power station, the building itself is an attraction. Towering over the riverbank, expect incredible city views from the Terrace Bar and Viewing Level. Catch exhibitions such as ‘The Making of Rodin’ and ‘Turner’s Modern World’ ongoing throughout the summer.

4. London Eye 

Going up, up, up! The London Eye is a giant wheel ideally located to give you the best views London has to offer. It’s Europe’s largest observation wheel and the UK’s most popular tourist attraction. Take the whole family by day to spot famous landmarks or wait until the sun sets for the perfect date night activity.

5. Sea Life

The safest way to meet a shark… This massive aquarium is bursting with underwater creatures from around the world. Stroke a starfish in a rockpool, watch penguins gobble fish and learn all about seadragons and seahorses at the Seahorse Kingdom. Conservation is at the heart of Sea Life and you can play your part by signing petitions and educating yourself at Conservation Cove.
