1. First of all, fuel up with a full English breakfast.

If you expect to go nonstop, you'd better be ready! Bacon, fried eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, sausages, baked beans. "MARRY ME."

3. Go for a walk or a run.

The best way to discover a new city is by seeing it on foot. Run through Regent's Park and Primrose Hill, walk Regent's Canal or the Thames, or dodge slowpokes as you weave your way through the city however you please. Just get out there!

4. Get freaking cultured!

London is home to some of the greatest street art in the world! For a surefire graffiti experience, head to Shoreditch, book a street art bike tour, or explore on your own with help from LDNGraffiti.

5. Do as the locals do.

You can't visit London and not pop into a pub. It just wouldn't be right. Stop and ask a local for a recommendation and, if you're feeling particularly legendary, offer to buy their first one as thanks.

6. Stuff yourself full with a Sunday roast.

Sunday roasts = humongous plates of goodness: meat, potatoes, gravy, veggies, Yorkshire pudding. They’re typically served from noon to 5 p.m. but, be warned: You're going to need a nap after.

7. Give in to the tea.

The British love their tea. They do. Go all out with it — go somewhere classy, dress up a little, have some finger sandwiches and baked goods too.

8. Don't complain about the rain.

"But it was sunny and warm 10 minutes ago!" LONDON WEATHER DOESN'T CARE. Know that you're going to get caught in something. Besides, a real legend is always prepared. Carry an umbrella.

11. Honor the legends who've come before you.

Go to museums! Look for landmarks! At the very least, walk around and admire the incredible history that surrounds you. Some serious sh*t has gone down in this city.

And, of course, travel like a legend — with Air Canada.

Air Canada offers the most nonstop flights to London daily.
