London: Day 3

On Sunday we had breakfast at the Balans Soho society. I had the eggs Benedict with avocado, bacon and lobster and my boyfriend had the classic eggs Benedict. The food was delicious and the restaurant itself is really beautiful.

After that we took a train to Camden Town and visited the different markets there. 

We bought a few artprints, as well as some jewellery. Since I have been to London before I already knew how fun it is in Camden on a Sunday and my boyfriend loved it as well. 

Our next stop was St.Pauls cathedral. We didn’t go inside, but looked at it from the outside as we made our way to the millennium bridge

On the other side of the Thames we visited the Tate Modern. The had some really interesting exhibitions and even some Andy Warhol prints. 

After that we took a train to Piccadilly circus and ate at an American diner in Soho. I had some fried chicken with coleslaw, mash, onion rings and gravy, as well as one corn dog. It tasted great. 

Today we’re already leaving for Germany again, but we still have a whole day in London!

London: Day 1 + 2

We arrived in London at around 6:40 in the morning and travelled into the city by Stansted Express and then took the tube to Stratford. From there it was a five minute walk to our hotel – the Westbridge

Because we arrived fairly early our room wasn’t ready yet, but the hotel staff was kind enough to take care of our luggage, so that we could go explore the city.

We firstly checked out the Westfield Stratford, right by the station and then took the tube to Holborn, from there on we walked to Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Circus. Since I have been to London before,  I became the tour guide for my boyfriend. Next stop was Big Ben, Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey. 

Then we tried to find the Buckingham Palace and arrived there after a ten minute walk. We didn’t spend a lot of time there and headed straight to Hyde Park

After spending an hour there we headed back to our hotel. Our room is excellent and I can highly recommend the Westbridge. The staff is amazing and the restaurant is excellent.

On Saturday we had breakfast at the Eastway, right by Liverpool Station. I had the waffles with bacon and maple syrup, as well as a freshly pressed orange juice and an English breakfast tea. The food was absolutely delicious.

The rest of the day we just went shopping in the Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and Covent Garden. At the end of the day we got some sushi at Oka in the Kingly Court in SoHo. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos, but the sushi was amazing.
