8. Kings Cross

This is the city’s red light district so if you wander over here, you’re in for quite a show, with an array of adult shops, tacky night cubs and more.

10. Hyde Park

Think of Hyde Park like a mini Central Park and is named after the original one in London. You can just chill here and take in the sights and enjoy the beauty and people watching.
