Hello 2020! The arrival of a new year and a new decade might just be the perfect time to see London with fresh eyes. Whatever the year, season or day of the week, though, we’re always completely spoilt for brilliant things to do in London. From top gigs to incredible art exhibitions, iconic attractions to secret spots, by day and by night, there are actually so many more than 101 things to do in London. But we think this London bucket list (curated by our editors and always hotly debated in the Time Out office) is a good place to start.
Whether you’ve lived here all your life or just arrived in town, our city checklist will help you hunt out hidden gems, find something new at London’s landmarks, get a taste for the West End even when you can’t get a ticket for a show, travel the world through a hundred amazing cuisines and discover new parts of town you’ve never even heard of before. Got the energy to go beyond 101? Check out events in London happening right now.
