Lucknow is THE city to experience the Nawabi culture and hospitality, and its culinary heritage is just the place to start with. So one of the first things to do in Lucknow for anyone is to indulge in Awadhi delights, especially the legendary galouti kebabs served at Tunday Kababi. Other iconic eateries and restaurants in the city also promise an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Going beyond culinary extravaganza, there are some great pubs and bars in Gomti Nagar to enjoy Lucknow’s nightlife.
While strolling through the streets, don’t forget to pick up all the quintessential Lucknawi items such as chikankari textiles, ittar and nagra footwear from Aminabad, Hazratganj and other local markets. Malls like Saharaganj and Phoenix United are also some good options for shopping in Lucknow.
Besides, the City of Nawabs offers ample sightseeing opportunities for tourists with historical places like Bara Imambara and Chota Imambara, State Museum and Lucknow Zoo and Ambedkar Park. For a fun weekend, Anandi Water Park, Gomti Riverfront Park, and Kukrail Picnic Spot make ideal leisure destinations.
