As much as I love walking around, sometimes it’s worth slowing down and stopping to observe the city. Watching the world go by is a fun free thing to do in London, and there are some great places for it.
48. Regent’s Canal
Watching the canal boats go by from the steps outside Granary Square in King’s Cross is the ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon.
49. Piccadilly Circus
Watching the people go by and the lights flash on the big screens in Piccadilly Circus is another good way to absorb the London scene.
50. South Bank
Watching the world go by on the South Bank is a great way to soak up the city. From the performers to the London Eye, the riverboats to the festivals, there’s always something exciting going on here.
