I seem to be going quite a lot lately and I am quite enjoying it. I’ve been able to explore new parts I haven’t been to before. This last weekend I was there for a friend’s hen do and we had great fun. The weekend started with a treasure hunt that had us walking around London for a a few hours. I got to see Kensington Palace, which I don’t think I’ve been to before.
We then headed to have afternoon tea at a beautiful hotel new St James Park. The scones and cakes were absolutely amazing!
We then headed to the River Thames for a night cruise. This was amazing as I got to see the city late at night all lit up and it was beautiful.
The Greenwich Meridian laser
The Tower of London
The London Eye
It was a lovely nice that stayed warm into the early morning. The light reflecting on the river were gave the water a glow that is does not have during the day.
The next day we headed towards Portobello Road and I found this tree that was growing and taking the wall with it. It made me smile and appreciate that nature in the city still thrives.
We went to an amazing place – The Electric Diner – for breakfast and I enjoyed a fantastic flat white and a Full English tat hit the spot nicely. I intend to go back here when I can.
When we had finished it was still waking up and the vintage market was set up as we wandered back up the road. I would very much like to come back for the food market during the week. It was beautiful and sunny and it would have been nice to stay a while longer, but I will plan that in for next time.
Overall a lovely day exploring and visiting some new places that I will be making the effort to go back to. The sun made it an extra special weekend.
