What NOT to Do in London (if you want a local experience)

If you're trying to visit London like you live here (that's what my whole channel is about!) then these are the things to avoid doing while in London. This includes some well-known attractions and some experiences that no Londoner would ever be caught dead doing!

Hey if you want to do these things that's totally fine, but for travelers who want to get off the beaten path and experience London in a way that's different from the typical touristy stuff that doesn't show the real, authentic side of the city, skip these things. Believe it or not, Changing the Guard is not an "authentic" London experience, nor are those "famous" London pubs like the Ye Old Cheshire Cheese (or whatever it's called, idk!)
