Where To Go In London

London is easily one of the most adored and travelled too Cities in the world, alongside New York City and Paris, it has many amazing landmarks from the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament. However, there are many other treasures throughout this busy City which, I am sure, you will love.
1. Camden Market
Camden Market
Camden Market is a quirky and unique market which stretches for miles, with a selection of shops and stalls, it is suited for anyone. Have a stroll down the main market street alongside the canal, grab a bite to eat and any cuisine you like or simply mooch around the little shops and stalls with a combination of jewellery, clothing and artwork.

2. The Shard
The Shard
The Shard is a new addition to the ever lasting landmarks, here in London, it has quickly become one of the most visited spots in recent years. It's large skyscraper appearance invites tourists to the top of the building for an over view of London. I went last October and I have to say, it was pretty amazing, you get to see a 360 degree view of London and are able to point out buildings such as Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and Houses of Parliament. Why not have a meal up their as well? A selection of restaurants are open with bookings.

3. St Pauls Cathedral
St Pauls Cathedral
Like The Shard, St Pauls Cathedral is one of the most visited spots in London, the building itself stands proudly in the centre of main streets, shops and restaurants, just off the River Thames. Inside this historic building you are able to appreciate the beautiful stain glass windows, architecture and even have the option to walk up to the top of the building for an overview of London.
4. Hyde Park
Hyde Park
Hyde Park is perfect if your looking for a relaxing few hours, especially in the summer. The park is filled with pretty flowers, trees and of course, squirrels. Take a picnic and sit on the freshly cut grass or buy an ice cream from a nearby stand.

Health and Fitness

Summer has arrived and that mean's it is time for sun bathing, pool parties and wearing swim suits, but what about keeping fit and healthy throughout this season? Generally a lot of teenagers take summer as a 'chill out' period, often getting up late in the day, parties and eating rubbish, this year, for me, is going to be different!
Walking is a great way to do some gentle exercise for however long you please, whether it is walking your dog, a walk with your friend or just time by yourself. Walking helps to clear your head and leaves you open to the fresh air.
Yoga is my favourite work out, many people believe Yoga does not have the same benefits as going to the gym, however it does. I like Yoga because it is a gentle yet hard going exercise you can do in the comfort of your own home or in a professional class. It has emotional benefits as well as Yoga relaxes and calms you, this is perfect for distressing or if you have trouble sleeping.
Adventure Sports
Why not bring fun into exercise? Go on dry ski slopes if you can with your friends or rock climbing, something that is really exciting and that all your friends will enjoy. Even just going for a swim can be fun with a friend, have races, try new strokes and you can even do water Aerobics!
Eating Well
Being healthy does not mean eating fruit and vegetables all the time, being healthy simply means maintain a well balanced diet. Make sure you eat regular portions of vegetables and fruits alongside meat/ fish, however it is also important to have good fats as well as the occasional treat!
