Read on for a collection of fantastic experiences that we've put together for you to visit during your time in London - in a such a vibrant, characterful city how could you be disappointed?

Make the most of your time in London

London, the home of TechXLR8, is a city steeped in history, powered by technology and kept beating by the dynamism and character of its nearly 10 million residents - all of which make this one of the most exciting and attractive global destinations!

As an attendee of London Tech Week, we know that you came for the tech but equally we hope that you will stick around to check out just a few of the great experiences on offer in the Capital.

With this in mind, the TechXLR8 team have put together a short list of experiences that we hope will help you to have a fantastic time!

Fun: Take home a memory of some of the city's top attractions!

The British Museum

Established in 1753, The British Museum, is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection of some eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive worldwide. It documents the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present. 

During London Tech Week the museum will be running exhibitions on the Arctic as well as the Tantra philosophy alongside its general offerings.

Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

All's well that ends well and with a trip to the Globe you have a perfect way to end (or begin) your TechXLR8 London experience!

Shakespeare’s Globe is a world-renowned performing arts venue, cultural attraction and education centre located on the bank of the River Thames in London, UK. 

Home to the Globe Theatre and Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, there are guided tours, a gift shop, bar and restaurant on-site

The London Eye

A remarkable feat of design and engineering, The London Eye gave London’s skyline a dramatic new addition and has been offering guests a new perspective on London ever since. Originally, it was intended as a temporary structure, able to be dismantled and transported to a new location, and had planning permission for just five years but with millions boarding it every year, its popularity has prompted its lease to be extended. 

Today it is a permanent fixture on the London skyline and a beautiful symbol of modern London which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year!

Food: Dine to your heart's content!

Leadenhall Market

Leadenhall Market dates back to the 14th century and is situated in what was the centre of Roman London. Originally a meat, poultry and game market, it is now home to a number of boutique retailers, restaurants, cafes, wine bars and an award-winning pub.

Starting as the site of a manor, Leadenhall has survived changes in use, rebuilding, and even the Great Fire to become a popular destination for city residents, visitors and workers.

The Capital's Markets

Of course, we couldn't possibly list all of the fantastic markets and food courts dotted around the Capital, so click here to have a look at some of the Capital's best-rated places to eat!

Further Afield: London too small? Why not go for a day trip!

Bath

Built for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in.

Bath’s compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain, making it the ideal city break. Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries, and enjoy year-round festivals, theatre, music and sports.

Cambridge

There’s something for everyone when it comes to entertainment in Cambridge. A choice of galleries showcases an impressive range of art, from the contemporary to the classic, a buzzing theatre and performance scene presents drama, dance and family shows .

Likewise, you can enjoy all kinds of live music from internationally acclaimed orchestras and ensembles to touring pop stars, pub gigs, the world-famous Folk Festival, ever-popular Beer Festival, family-friendly Big Weekend and magical Secret Garden Party festivals. 

You can go punting on the River Cam, enjoy a picnic in the park, join a walking tour of the city or explore further afield from the seat of a bicycle following the excellent network of cycle paths in and around the city.
