London is most definitely one of my favourite cities. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to live so close. There’s so much to do from the museums, architecture, street art & food. Shopping & sightseeing, I love the hustle & bustle and street style. It’s one of the biggest diverse cities but we benefit from that so much – there’s such a variety of food to eat, so many different cultures to learn from. I moan about the tube so much but it’s actually one of the best underground systems and we cannot forget the iconic black taxis & red telephone boxes!
The nightlife is something else & you can always be sure to find something to do..
London in the Winter is very pretty, all the lights, festive markets and hot chocolate. There’s always big events going on in the parks, Winter Wonderlands, Ice Skating, Rooftop bars and pubs but Spring/Summer in the city is just dreamy!
All the food markets are at their peak, summer dresses and denim shorts, sunnies and fruit tooty ciders, the flowers are blossoming, Roof Terraces are packed with good music – what’s not to love?!
We drove into London on Good Friday, parked up at Westminster and decided to take a long stroll to Borough Market. We first walked across the bridge and down the South Bank, we stopped off at South Bank food market & was spoilt for choice. Chris got a juicy cheese burger & I went for a lamb & halloumi wrap – OMG heaven.
We did look like typical tourists but we didn’t care, we love LONDON!
After demolishing lunch, we walked through Southwark and arrived at Borough Market. Southwark was eerily quiet and calm for London but as soon as we turned the corner, it was crazy busy, so many people enjoying the London life, couples & groups of friends sitting in the streets drinking, families with children and their dogs queuing for gelato!
Borough market is definitely foodie heaven, British and International produce, bringing a whole host of traders together selling fruit & veg, deli, artisan bread, pastries and cakes & tonnes of street food stalls!
We stopped off at the Bread Ahead stall, I’ve been following them for a while! They have a stall in the market full of fresh breads, croissants and hot cross buns so OF COURSE I bought lots to take home! They also have a workshop around the corner which I’m keen to try… more so for Chris as he loves cooking & baking.
