London- the land of the double decker bus and the Buckingham Palace! We spent a total of 4 days and I wanted more time!

Tips:

  • Purchase an oyster card to ride the subway and buses.
  • It’s pretty cheap to travel by train in Europe- I recommend going to another city/country
  • We stayed by Covent Garden and LOVED it!
  • Rent a bike and go around!

Things to do:

  • Visit the Buckingham Palace
  • Shop at the Covent Garden
  • Ride the Coca-Cola London Eye
  • Take a photo in front of Big Ben- This was the closest we got to the real thing since it was under construction LOL
  • Visit the world of M&Ms
  • Take a photo in a red phone booth
  • Photo at Tower Bridge- it’s so iconic, how can you not?
  • Visit the Tower of London
  • Scout out where Harry Potter was filmed
  • Shop at Harrod’s- the oldest department store still standing in London
  • Tour the British Musuem- so much history!
  • Visit the Markets: some are only open on a certain day:
    • Borough Market
    • Leadenhall Market
    • Brick Lane Market
    • Old Spitalfields Market

Eat, Drink, Repeat:

  • London has MANY cute cafe’s that are Instagram and tea time
    worthy :
    • Elan Cafe– There’s something about their avocado toast that still has me drooling

    • Aubaine
  • Peggy Porschen
    • Laduree
    • Sketch
    • Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea
    • Diamond Jubilee
    • Dominique Ansel
  • Dishoom: Must I say, Indian food in London should be on your list! I’m not much of a wait in line kind of girl but for this place, I would. The flavors were amazing!
  • Coppa Club: I checked their website everyday and was able to book 2 months in advance for a table in the Igloo. The food was amazing, the Irish Coffee is a must, and the view is gorgeous!
  • Dim Sum: there’s so many Dim Sum places in Chinatown but i will say, it doesn’t compare to Houston’s Dim Sum but if you’re having withdrawals- it’ll do
  • Tsujiri: omg get the sundae and eat it for me please
  • Cahoots: a friend of mine recommended this bar and I loved it! it’s underground and you walk into a train basically. The drinks are like the ones you find at tiki bars.
  • Venchi Chocolate and Gelato
  • Sky Garden: great view from up top- enjoy some drinks and food
