Things to do in London this Summer!
Now it is Summer Term and the weather is getting better (we hope), it is a good opportunity to go out and enjoy the best of London before the academic year is over! Diplomacy, Business and Trade MSc student, Kyle, has written this blog on some things you can do in London in the upcoming months!

The Tower of London remains one of the capital’s best and most well-known historical attractions. Plus, it’s situated next to the iconic Tower Bridge, so you’d be hard pushed to miss this medieval spectacle. You can book tickets here.
