As much as we love working out, sometimes we just want to spend our weekends exploring London rather than heading to the gym. But hitting the tourist trail can actually involve a lot more exercise than you might think! Here’s some of our favourite ways to get active without working out in London…
Grab A Boris Bike
Whether you're a tourist or a local, grabbing one of London’s iconic Boris Bikes is a great way to get around the city and see some sights. Whether you’re hitting up your favourite breakfast spot, or want to see some landmarks, grabbing a Boris bike is a lot more fun that jumping on the treadmill at the gym. Not to mention it makes for an awesome photo opportunity too!
Hit The Markets
Whatever your style, whether it’s vintage clothing in Portobello, food heaven in Borough or dreamy flowers at Columbia Road, London has some amazing markets to wander on the weekend - we could think of worse ways to clock up some serious steps!
Refuel With Brunch
All that activity calls for a refuel right? Luckily for you foodies, you’re in one of the best cities for satisfying that grumbling stomach. Hit one of London’s best healthy cafes, like Daisy Green or Dayrooms Café, for Aussie-style brunches or epic salad creations. In need of more brunch recommendations? Check out our blogpost, here.
Check Out The Views From The Tate Modern
Wander the collections at the Tate Modern and take the stairs up to the brand new 360-degree viewing platform to check out the view. All those stairs up to the top will certainly have you working up a sweat, but with one of the best views of the city, the reward is certainly worth the effort.
