Best Adventures In London

Best Adventures In London – London isn’t the first place that comes to mind when we think of adventure. After all, it’s a very big city, and the only wasteland is urban in nature. Everyone in London seems to have a busy schedule, rushing from pillar to pillar. The adventure takes time and freedom to explore, take wrong turns and end up in an equally fun but totally unexpected place. Luckily, there’s more to a London adventure than just climbing the spiral staircase at Lambeth North Station. Or party from your office window to avoid the weekly performance update…

So if you’re looking for an adventure in London, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 11 of the best London adventures to spice up your time in the capital.

Outdoor Activities In London

London has a surprising amount of water for a big city. WakeUp Docklands is London’s only wake up cable park. That means it’s the only place in London where you can be pulled across the water on a wakeboard by an aerial cable. You can bring your own board or rent one there. They also offer hydrofoil and SUP lessons in the water. Actually you mentioned it now…

As I said, London has a lot of water. Including lots of water that probably wouldn’t be suitable for wakeboarding… but definitely suitable for other adventure water sports. For example SUP. Think of all the lakes in the parks of central London! A great adventure destination in London – although you might catch strange looks if you go to a small lake with a big paddle board. Maybe check who owns the lake first…

To experience a paddleboarding adventure without having to take a paddleboard with you on the subway, there are several companies that can take you on a paddleboard, such as: B. Active360 or Paddleboarding London.

When it comes to snow, you can also ski and snowboard in London. Sure it’s indoors – because it’s been a long time since the Thames frozen over – but at least one of the centers is real snow. Do you want to build a snowman? Good because you can. (Disclaimer: We didn’t ask the Snow Center folks if it’s okay to build snowmen at your own risk.)

Although Chel-Ski doesn’t have actual snow, it has a pretty cool name. We always love a good play on words. It is also the largest indoor ski center in London. Both Chel-Ski and Snow Center offer something for all skill levels – and you can even learn to ski or snowboard from scratch.

As you fall to the ground, you can look out over Canary Wharf and central London. You can book your jump at the UK Bungee Club. They also have arenas across the country if you’re ever outside of the capital.

As with SUP, there are many ways to get on the water. Kayaking in London does tours on the Thames, such as kayaking Big Ben at night. The London Kayak Company also does various excursions… Yes, that’s starting to sound like a Monty Python sketch. Pick any business with the words “kayak” and “London” and you’re on the right track.
