Family visit + a guide of what to see and do in London ’17

In the first week of July, right after my exams, my parents and my brothers came to visit me. It was great to see them again and visit London together. I hadn’t seen them since Easter so it was really nice to be with them again and I was very lucky because I was in my study leave period and I had more time to be with them!

After a year living here and all the times that I had come to London before,  I’m happy to say that now I could find some places that I didn’t know before. My favourite one was the Barbican centre next to the Museum of London.Another place that I hadn’t been for a while was St Katherine’s Docks where I had been last August with my mum but  this time we brought my father and my brothers.

As we always do, our family trips have some artistic and cultural feature, nothing to expect with two parents architects😅! After all we went to the Design Museum to see the new exhibition (which is free admission and you should definitely try to go) and to the Serpentine Pavilion in Hyde Park, which is also free but it’s temporary, what means it will be destroyed in the end of September, you should see it before!

We also did a bicycle journey in Richmond with my aunt, my uncle and my cousins. It was a really good way to spend a day in family!

If you’re coming to London soon here I leave some tips of what you should do or see! This plan can be done in two days or six, depending on what you want to do and how quick you want to visit this city. I hope my tips can be useful! Let me know when you come to London and help me improving them!!
