It is a 400 acre piece of lush green haven and you can regularly see locals and tourists playing sports on the grass, like cricket, tennis, soccer and other sports.

One of the world’s oldest surviving underground stations serves Baker Street and dates back to the mid 19th century. It serves thousands of tourists each day coming to the area whilst visiting the famous street, the parks and the Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. The Madame Tussaud’s in London is the original museum that Madame Tussaud herself opened in the 19th century and later moved to Marylebone Road at the end of the century.

There are many places to visit in London, and most of them are right next to one another. Don’t make the same mistake as many of the tourists do… make sure you have your tickets and itinerary planned out in advance as to avoid disappointment, unnecessary overspending and frustration. One last tip: It is possible to take the underground all around London but it is very tiring and can get very hot during the summer. We recommend you bring your walking shoes and take our advice, either walk or otherwise take a hop on hop off pass, that way you can see more places, in less time and save a lot of money as well.
