If you love shopping then head over to Covent Garden, Oxford Street, or Regent’s Street!

3. Visit Museums

Museums are the perfect place where you should visit alone. These are the best places to visit if you’re feeling a little nervous about going to London by yourself. Don’t forget to take a look at Sherlock Holmes Museum and Sir John Soane’s Museum while you are in London.

I promised you that you will discover a museum that you will love, even if you’re not typically a museum individual.

4. Art Gallery

If you are a person like me who love arts then London is the perfect place for you. In fact, there are so many exhibition spaces and art galleries in London that no one’s even sure of the correct number!

Take a trip to Tate Modern for a glimpse of Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol masterpieces and the National Gallery for some older artwork. If you love street art, then Shoreditch is the perfect place for you.

5. Explore The Amazing View

No one can deny that London has some amazing view to offer. You don’t need a travel buddy to admire an incredible view. Throughout the capital, particularly in the district of the City of London, there are lots of incredible rooftop views to explore.

There are plenty of movie spots from the movies like Notting Hill, Love Actually and more that are worth making a visit.

7. Vintage Shopping Along Portobello Road

If you don’t know about the world’s largest antique market then its time to give it a look. Every weekend the world’s largest antique market held in the open air in the chic Notting Hill district of the city.

Though the Portobello Road Market is truly open every day of the week, the main event day is Saturday. So it is when you’ll find all the best outdoor stalls which include plenty of pop-up eateries!

8. See Performance At The Theatre

Most say solo travel can be boring but in my opinion, it’s your chance to explore like real you. Instead of joining in activities that your friends/ partner/ family want to do, you can instead indulge in your passions. Apart from ancient churches of London and dining restaurants, theatre is the best place to travel solo. It is one of the best things to do in London.
