Activities in London

Talking about activities in London... Let's look at some vocabulary that one could use in an invitation for a foreign visitor. Well, one could never put briefly all the things a visitor could do in London. However, you can use two alternative ways for this:

  • a) You should know your visitor, in order to offer an activity that would enchant him/her;
  • b) You don't know your visitor, but you may still be able to offer to do something you know you can do for sure, more like 'a stab in the dark'.

a) Something well-prepared

- Since you are a politician, I recommend one of the most exciting event for our parliament: the State Opening of Parliament, which will take place in May 2016.
- I know you like sports, so we could see a marathon, or the River Race.
- Darling, you like high society events. How about going to the horse-racing at Royal Ascot in June? We could wear our fancy hats at this glamorous event.
- You told me you love Shakespeare.  We could easily get into The Globe to see a play together one evening.

b) A stab in the dark

- If you can visit in May this year, I would dearly love to take you to the Chelsea Flower Show. You will be amazed!
- We can enjoy a tour of London's touristic attractions from the upper deck of a Big Bus one day. We could see Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
- How would you fancy to go on a cruise of the Thames with me one day?
- When you visit London you must try to see a bit of the Wimbledon lawn tennis championship this summer.
