You’ve often heard London, home of Foxtrail, being described as the greatest city in the world. But have you stopped to think why? We believe there are two key reasons: firstly, there’s the incredible range of attractions, and secondly there’s the rich cultural diversity of the city itself.
Things to do in London, old and new
There’s so much to see and do in London that it’s easy to forget its home to millions of people. They go about their daily business, used to seeing some of the amazing sites all over the city.
With more than 2,000 years of rich history, it’s no surprise there are more landmarks and iconic historical buildings in London than just about any other city in the world. Palaces, cathedrals and monuments are testament to the days when Britain ruled the waves, and just about everything else.
London sightseeing is simple. You just step outside and there’s usually something awesome just around the corner.
And it’s not only older attractions, like the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament or Westminster Abbey that get all the attention. London has been careful to welcome new attractions constantly so that return visitors will always find something new to do.
That’s why the Mayor of London’s official agency London and Partners was so keen to work with new London activities like Foxtrail. We provide something completely different, an urban treasure trail across the city, giving visitors the chance to solve clues and explore the area on foot. It’s one of the new quirky things to do in London that also lets you enjoy old sites like Southwark Cathedral or Winchester Palace.
Let’s not forget that much of London’s awesomeness is free. You can visit many of the galleries, monuments and exhibitions without spending anything at all!
A rich and diverse culture
London has been a centre of trade and commerce for centuries. Home to kings and queens and the base of the British Empire, it has always attracted merchants and visitors from all over the world.
It means the capital became cosmopolitan and it’s always embraced the various cultures that came with it. Nowadays, London is actively inclusive and it’s this extraordinary range of nationalities, religions and ways of life that make the city so unique.
Visit London and see it for yourself
Even if you’ve been many times, there are always things to do in London. We’d love to show you Foxtrail, the newest of the many fun activities in London.
Foxtrail allows you to see many of the great landmarks of the city while you explore on foot, trying to keep to the trail by finding and solving cunning clues along the way.
It’s a four-mile treat, so you’ll get plenty of fresh air and exercise in teams of two to seven people. Take as long as you wish, stopping off at the main key sites on our first route (called Lancelot). But if you press on, it will still take you up to four hours!
