Bucket List for must do in West London

People like my friends have already planned there visit  to London, but do we really understand what are those places where we need to be and the decision to be there is the most difficult of all.  The best way to resolve this problem is to make a bucket list even before you book your tickets so that you are prepared in well advance. To start with lets focus on the West London part  of the city and the place opens up to so many beautiful options which one should be aware of before planning, few of them are below.

Soho’s Chinese New Year parade
The Chinese New Year parade is one of the most popular attractions during the month of February and every year this ritual is followed without fail, in case you happen to be visiting in the earlier week, then try being a part of this festival as the parade takes a route starting from Soho through Trafalgar square to the Shaftesbury Avenue. The Trafalgar is decorated and there is a multitude of events being organised here and you can hear the cheering crowd and the enthusiasm of the celebration is quite contagious get ready to get inflicted by the same.


Trip to Venice
The place is very much in London just to the north part of the Paddington it is said that the place is very much a union of the Grand Union and Regent canal with a perfect atmosphere. With the calm and serene environment you can spend their some time or sit for hours , there are moored boats which can be hired for the whole day and perhaps some rowing can also be done in case you are not interested in boating there are riverside cafes. Beautiful, funky looking hang out areas are there near the little Venice area where you get some amazing piping hot food and also grasp a pint of beer while you chit chat with your friends. My friends who made it to this place from the Piccadilly London West End  had a very amazing experience as they hopped to plenty of cafes and tasted the wide variety of food and assortments that were offered at these joints. A perfect place to spend some quality time in solace and also enjoy the sight around.

Oxford and Cambridge boat race
This annual boat race between the Oxford and Cambridge is a high voltage drama and not to be missed in case you are vacationing during that time of the year. On the river Thames these two teams along with their supporters go for a boat race wherein they row for a four miles and a quarter mile more to win the championship, as the race begins the supporters of the two teams are very enthusiastic and there is a lot of cheering and jeering that happens at the banks, you can see people ogling through the binoculars and not a moment goes when the palpitations are felt around. Every year in the month of March on the Easter Sunday the race is scheduled in case you are around in London during this time do go for this high voltage event.

Hounslow’s Bell
A famous outdoor event arena from dancers to acrobats to theatrics you name it and the juices of creativity flows in here. The place has an established reputation of holding some breath taking performances as  even my dancer  friends who were staying at the hotels in Paddington London gave some mind blowing performances and enthralled the audiences, there are people who just walk up to these places and you do not need to worry about reservation.
