2. Go to a museum
London has many interesting museums! You could for example visit the British Museum which has an extensive collection of artefacts. Also, if you're more interested in science, you could also visit the Science Museum. This museum is a lot of fun, because it has interactive displays and over 15,000 objects. Furthermore, you could go to the National Portrait Gallery, which is really cool, because it has the largest collection of portraits in the whole world. Moreover, if you'd like to learn more about Britain's army, you should definitely check out the National Army Museum. Because there, you can learn about the history of the armed forces. You'll see objects of the British Civil Wars to the modern day!
These museums (and more!) are all free, which is great! Furthermore, you could also visit multiple museums in one day.
