Some Mistake you will make in London in first 3 days

That’s a great tip Rob and a really good point!  So if you’re gonna be flying internationally   across a few time zones  and landing early in the morning at the airport,  give yourself a break,   don’t have anything crazy planned for the day,  you do want to do things so that you motivate yourself to stay awake so you can get on london time,  however don’t plan anything that you would be really upset that you didn’t really enjoy  because you were just so tired.  From London to airport use Gatwick Airport Shuttle Service

This city can be super overwhelming   when you first get here  and i think a lot of times that people,   when they come to visit,  get a little uncomfortable   and they stick to things that they know  so if they see like familiar restaurants or clothing brands, shops or stuff like that  they end up only visiting and checking out those things as opposed to exploring beyond and seeing  what london really has to offer.  Especially if you’re, gonna be in very “touristy” areas like: Liccadilly circus, Leicester square,  Trafalgar square, do your research ahead of time so that you know  some really good places to eat, to have a drink or if you want to do any kind of attractions around there.  On that note if you’re trying to find a good place to eat   or to drink in one of these areas  I don’t recommend relying on the trip advisor app. 

Sometimes it can be helpful and i know it’s easy to go to when you’re in a pinch  but I’ve had a look there and there are some really amazing food spots around these areas  that don’t even crack the top 20 and there are some places that don’t really look nice at all that do  and are frequented a lot by tourists   because just they’re high up on trip advisor  know that trip advisor the algorithms  can be skewed it can be easily manipulated  I mean I read an article the other day, about a woman who faked a restaurant in her shed in london  and was able to get it to the number one spot for restaurants in london  that people were calling her up asking to make reservations.  My point is is that you’ll miss out on some amazing hidden gems here  if you only stick with trip advisor recommendations. 

So do your research, see if you can get some recommendations from local londoners  who actually know good food spots around the area  because they know the area really well   and they live here,  and yeah don’t get stuck in a tripadvisor trap.  If you’re like: “Jess I feel so overwhelmed with trying to plan my first few days in london, oh my god, help me!”,  then you need to have a look at my   ‘3 day  london’ itinerary,  it’s a flexible non overwhelming   plan for your first three days here.  It combines some of the top things to do   and see in london  with a bunch of really great   local hidden gem recommendations.
