London is definitely an amazing city 24 hours a day. There are numerous tourist attractions you can visit during the day, such as museums, art galleries, the Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and so on, but this does not mean that the moment sun goes down you have to go to sleep. There are plenty of things happening during the night on the London’s streets as well, so you should definitely save at least one during your trip to experience London from a totally different perspective.

Watch a show in the West End

Going to a West-End show is definitely a must do activity when visitare Londra in 5 giorni so the moment the evening comes, head to the Theatre Land and choose one of the many musicals, amazing operas or classical plays. Brits do recommend you to attend shows such as The Lion King, War Horse or Wicked.

 Visit the Houses of Parliament

Many times, the House of Lords and the House of Commons allow visitors to enter for free, so take advantage of this and visit one of them in the evening. Even though this might seem strange to you, you should know that most of the times both Houses of Parliament work until late into the night, which offers you the perfect opportunity to attend the parliamentary debates. Make sure you check their schedule first though.

Take a ride on the London Eye

You have already been mesmerized by the amazing view of the capital seen from the London Eye by day, but what do you say seeing the city from above by night? The London Eye operates until late into the night hours in the spring, autumn and winter, so if you want to have the experience of your life, make sure you buy a “day and night” ticket, so you can benefit from two rides on the Eye during different hours.

Watch the ceremony of the keys

Another interesting activity you can do in London by night is to go and watch the ceremony of the keys. This is a century old tradition and it happens every night at the Tower of London, when the official securing and locking of the Tower takes place. Large rings of keys, beefeaters, secret passwords and beautiful military music create a magical atmosphere offering you a unique experience. It is worth mentioning that the entrance is free, but tickets are still required, so make sure you get one.
