London is European capital of trends, nightlife and entertainment. Everyone sooner or later has to organize a trip there, even if it’s just for a weekend.

Yet even for a few days, even if all you have is 2 or 3, you can enjoy a city that will trully stay in your hearts.
So, here are 6 things to do or things to do in London, hoping to be of a useful guideline for your next vacation.
Somerset House and the Courtauld Gallery
Small gallery with a lovely permanent exhibition of paintings and, although it is strangely overshadowed by many travel guides, in reality it is precisely here that major events such as London Fashion Week are organised. There are also many concerts during the summer. It is definitely worth a visit especially on a Monday when the ticket has a reduced price.
Soho for shopping and dinner
A disctrict that is definitely known and extremely appreciated for its colorful and vibrant streets that can trigger the virus of compulsive shopping. After a day full of shopping, the colors and glitter are replaced by the smells of ethnic restaurants scattered everywhere. You will surely find something to your liking, including Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Asian specialties.
A concert at the Barfly
For the lovers of rock and live music, the Barfly is definitely a must and especially for the opportunity for a decidedly alternative evening.
