  1. With the arrival of British Summer Time this weekend we thought it was only fitting to suggest a few of the best things to do in London in under 60 minutes.
    Take advantage of the extra hour of daylight:
    1. Walk the length of the South Bank along the Thames from Westminster Bridge to the Tower Bridge passing all of London’s iconic sights
    2. Rotate once around the London Eye in a glass capsule for views up to 40 km in every direction
    3. Eat your way around Borough Market, London’s gourmet food emporium
    4. Take the highlights tour at the British Museum and marvel at the Rosetta Stone, Elgin Marbles, and the Mummy of Katebet
    5. Hire a Boris Bike, London’s public bicycle sharing program nicknamed for the mayor, to whiz through four connected parks: Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park and St. James’s Park
