With Huntingdon train station only minutes away by car, and the fast train from Huntingdon to London Kings Cross taking only 45 minutes, London makes a fantastic destination for a day trip from Spaldwick.
There’s just so much to visit in London, including the EDF Energy London Eye, the Tower of London, Madame Tussauds, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the British Museum.
Travelling to London from Spaldwick
Perhaps the most relaxing way to travel to London is to take a train from Huntingdon station to Kings Cross station, and there is a regular service. Some Spaldwick residents prefer to drive down to Stevenage, park their car in the ample Stevenage train station car park and take the train for the short journey between Stevenage and London Kings Cross.
Some of the best attractions in London
The London Eye is the UK’s most visited paid for visitor attraction, being visited by over 3.5 million people per year.
The height of the London Eye is 135 metres, making it the fourth tallest structure in London. It, therefore, provides a spectacular view across London.
For more information, please visit the London Eye website.
Museums are free!
London is best appreciated on foot. One of the most pleasurable walks is along the River Thames, and the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben provide an impressive sight.
