5 Places within Easy Reach from London

If you think you have seen London enough, why not considering to go somewhere within easy reach from London? I have picked 5 places that I think every tourists would love to go to, where aren't really close to London but still within easy reach. These locations are perfect for a weekend stay, or even a day trip. So why not giving them a go?


This place is definitely a paradise to someone who loves seaside and beaches. So the best time to go there has to be in summertime otherwise it would be freezing cold and you wouldn't be able to enjoy the sunshine with your bikini on. Last time I was in Brighton was in May which I thought it wouldn't be that cold but unfortunately I was totally wrong... I think the entire July should be perfect for a warm sunbathing. 


You really have to visit Cambridge (at least) once in your life, and you should take a boat trip to see all the famous historical bridges there in one go. You wouldn't find anywhere like Cambridge in London so why not taking a train to Cambridge in about an hour, trying to get rid of the busy London, perhaps for just a day?


Are you a Harry Potter fan? That's the place for you! I am not really a big fan of Harry Potter but that's what "happened" in my childhood which I would really love to see something that I saw when I was young, and I am sure you would love to do that, too. So let's go and spot all the scenes from the film series now!

Sussex (Seven Sisters Country Park) 

Honestly, Sussex isn't really that easy to reach from London because you'll have to change a bus from Brighton first. Although there's no direct transport to reach Sussex from London, it's still worth a visit! I would suggest that you should stay in Brighton for a night, possibly on a weekend, then going to Sussex in the morning by catching the bus. It takes almost an hour from the city centre of Brighton and you'll need half a day if you would like to challenge yourself by walking the whole cliffside from Birling Gap (East Dean) back to Seven Sisters Country Park. I am so proud of myself that I did that and I think you should do it too. That's probably the only thing you can do there, isn't it?


You wouldn't have any excuses not going to Windsor because it only takes around 50 minutes from London city centre. And if you like visiting castles, that's definitely a go-to place in your bucket list. But if you don't fancy visiting castles, perhaps you could go Legoland Windsor Resort for a day off! This place is perfect for family and kids, too. 

So what are you still waiting for? Let's go!
