101 things to do in London – how many have you done?

Waterlily House in Kew Gardens

I always wanted to visit the Waterlily House in Kew Gardens but still haven’t been.

I liked Time Out London’s collection of 101 things to do in London – and the quiz that accompanied it, based on a list of destinations under Museums, Galleries, Parks, Shopping, etc.

But sadly, I only scored 29. 29?! Yep. It seems that when we lived there, we never did go to the Globe or the Royal Opera House, the London Zoo or the Science Museum. We did hit most of the parks, but were pretty light on the eating and drinking spots that they listed (to be fair, many of these didn’t exist back when we were living in London). And so it goes …

Take the quiz and see how you do!

  1. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve only done 29 as well! And, this has been after 22 visits over the past fifteen years. But in my defense — I have been to Kew Gardens!

  2. Well, glad I am in good company, Lillie! 🙂

  3. I’m at about 22, and some of those were so long ago I can barely remember them. For me, the list leans heavily to culture, with some completely arbitrary food choices. It’s missing things like the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, riding the whole Circle Line, watching the London marathon, and taking a proper afternoon tea (anywhere). And how can shopping miss Harrods, Hamleys and Marks and Sparks?

    • Agreed. It’s definitely missing the stuff that most Americans do when they go to London … and no list is complete w/o Harrods, Hamleys and M&S!

  4. I’ve done only 14 (or 15 if you include Kew Gardens when I was 6), and live only an hour from London!

    But I’ve done a few that weren’t on the list like the Museum of the Order of St John; The Museum of Packaging; a boat trip on the Regents Canal; and St Pancras Station (all on the same day)
