When it comes to the spectacular city of London, there are many things which put it on the tourism world map. First and foremost, it’s the capital of England, meaning it is a hotspot for domestic visitors looking to experience some real city life culture. Secondly, it is also the home of some of the world’s leading industries and institutions.

From fashion to sport, finances to architecture, London has given birth many of the greatest names to grace our planet. When it comes to music, the results are even more impressive. The Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Who, Elton John, and many other bands and artists made their name in London, providing the city with continuous media attention for many years, and hopefully even more years to come!

All these elements make London one of the most popular places to visit in the world, and just like many other capital cities in Europe, the centre of London can get a little busy to say the least. However that doesn't mean there aren't a number of places where people can go to relax, and to experience the amazing culture all around the capital. Let’s take a look at some of the most peaceful spots in London town.

Hampton Court, Barge Walk

Barge Walk follows the curve of the Thames river frim Hampton all the way to Kingston, and is one of the finest and peaceful walks you can take in the city. Lined with beautiful trees, swans and a variety of other natural wildlife, the stroll allows you to see a different side to the capital, as well some great sights too. During mid-afternoon, this walk can get very busy, so it’s best to either go early in the morning or just before it gets dark.

Kew, Queen Charlotte’s Cottage

Kew Gardens is one of the most visited attractions by tourists every year, however hidden inside is a little gem many are unaware of. Queen Charlotte’s Cottage can be found at the end of a paddock in Kew Gardens, and is rustic cottage house that was built in the 18th century.

Its primary use was a summer retreat for the Royal Family, and also housed a number of exotic animals that were brought in to entertain guests. Now, however, the cute cottage is a spectacular flower garden, displaying many different types of rare bud. Find your flights to London from Australia to make sure you get to see Queen Charlotte’s Cottage, any many more city attractions!

Twickenham, Eel Pie Island

With ‘keep out’ signs guarding most entrances, visitors to this tiny island in the Thames might think they've taken on more than they can chew! However, once you get past all the deflective instructions and take a stroll in this beautiful and quiet neighborhood  you’ll realize that your inquiry was well worth the trouble.

With no bikes, cars or any other forms of transport littering the streets, Eel Pie Island is one of the nicest places to live in the city – if you can afford it! If you can’t, then you’re just going to have to settle for relaxing and tranquil walks along the island’s riverside.
