British attractions to visit this summer

The Painted Hall

Located in the heart of the Old Royal Naval College, step into the Tudor era at the Painted Hall. The birthplace of Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I, walk around a royal home with over 500 years of history. Throughout your guided tour, you’ll be able to see treasure chests filled with historical memorabilia and wander around the grounds and courtyards once home to extravagant events. Filled with artefacts from historical periods across the world, try on King William’s Crown and clock, dare yourself to stare into Medusa’s face on Athena’s shield, or hold up King Louis XIV’s broken sword. Whether you’re wanting to brush up on your historical knowledge, or you’re keen to see centuries-old artwork, the Painted Hall is a hidden gem in London attractions.

London Bungee Jump

Chase adventure this summer with a 160 foot bungee jump by London’s O2 Arena. As you’re kitted out with the bungee rope and safety harnesses, you’ll ascend to the jumping platform where you’ll then be able to fly. In a matter of seconds, return to Earth via a thick air cushion to make your bungee jump as comfortable as possible. One of London’s newest thrillseeking activities, see the capital’s skyline from new heights (and lows) with a bungee jump.
