It's crazy to think I've been back from London for 2 weeks, in some ways it feels much longer, but I'm missing the adventure and exploring like mad! I don't have a great deal to share but below are just a few snaps and stories from my week away.
London's Financial District
Lloyd's Building, Gherkin, Willis Building & Leadenhall Building
Calling all Harry Potter fans, you must go and visit this place as it was used as the exterior filming location for Diagon Alley.
4 Princelet Street, Spitalfields, Whitechapel
Wednesday evening we took to the streets of Whitechapel for a 2 hour long walking tour, regardless of how tragic it may seem to you, a Jack the Ripper tour what just the sort of intriguing adventure I hadn't realised I wanted until I found out about it on the 'net. It was absolutely fascinating and I would recommend it to anyone with a historical or murder mystery interest. It was made even more exciting by the tour guide as he actually uncovered the ripper last year!
The building above is a popular filming location and just round the corner you will find Keira Knightley's house!
If you're in the Notting Hill area then pop into Jamie Oliver's Recipease, it's the ultimate haven with cooking lessons!
No first trip to Notting Hill is complete without visiting the infamous blue door and of course, the bookshop. I'm such a Richard Curtis film obsessive.
Stables Market, Camden
Primrose Bakery, Primrose Hill
I've been itching to visit this bakery for a year or so, with this's pastel interior, bright light sign and so much pink combined in a bakery, it was my idea of heaven before I even set foot in there.
The girls in there are so so lovely and we totally great about me taking pictures and even let me round the counter to take pictures (which turned out awful because my camera was on the wrong setting).
The Primrose Hill area is so beautiful, the perfect and relaxing grounds are delightful on a summers day, next time I'm definitely taking a picnic.
I'd recommend Primrose Hill simply to see London's skyline, I was so deflated when I realised no picture would ever be able to do it justice!
Those 6 days in the big smoke were the perfect getaway, not to mention the shopping and night at the theatre to see Lord of the Dance (AMAZING!).
Next year I'll pop back for a few days and experience a tonne of things I'm still yet to do, if you want to meet up then just holler!
