An Adrenaline’s junkie’s guide to London


If you want a rush of adventure, London is the place to visit. But you’ll have to look beyond the common tourist traps and find those 3-5 attractions that make all the difference. A city is only ever as good as its sites and attractions, and maybe that goes without saying. But we feel it’s important to acknowledge that London has just about everything you need to make your stay worthwhile.

Tree Climbing

Go Ape

If you’ve ever imagined zip wiring across different platforms, with the fear of not knowing if you’ll be 100% (that’s always part of the fun), then Go Ape is the place to visit. It’s perfect for groups of 2 or more, but we wouldn’t recommend going on your own. Just like an adrenaline-fuelled adventure, it’s better when the experience is shared.

London o2 Dome: Climbing Experience

While London’s skyscrapers are commonly touted as destinations worth visiting for the simple reason of being able to get an encapsulating view of the city, sometimes that’s not enough. That’s where the o2 dome climbing experience comes in. With a team leader, you’ll be able to climb the o2 dome (with a harness and safety gear of course), and see the city from a unique viewpoint. Granted, it’s not as high of a viewing platform as the Shard, Gherkin, or the London Eye – but the activity based experience will no doubt give you more of adrenaline fuelled experience.

London Dungeon

Built to scare you from start to finish, there are few comparable experiences in the capital. Perfect for children and adults alike, the experience takes visitors on a horrific and epic journey through London’s dark history. Detailing events around Jack, the Ripper, along with much more, the experience solely deals with the city’s infamous past. You’ll no doubt leave feeling a little more educated, as well as a little shell-shocked.

So if you ever doubted if London would be able to provide you with adrenaline fuelled experience you need, this article should calm your anxieties. Book your stay at the Park Grand Lancaster Gate, and experience the best in exciting attractions this season.
