Although London is a known environment to me and the journey is some what comforting, it always manages to enchant me. Blessed with having visited what I call ‘my holy land’ approximately 30 times ,which is basically every year since I turned two. London will always have a special place in my heart.
If one place brings you so much happiness you will never seize to love it..
This year I visited London in February 2015 with a very wonderful friend Fran who brought loads of laughter to this trip and also a key element in using the tube stations which I do not particularly fancy!
So come along and have a look at the small selection of favourite images from the trip!
HUB by Premier Inn by far one of the best hotels in the centre of the centre of the very very centre of London! For those who love the high tech, gadget indulgence and futuristic feel don’t look any further. Walking distance to the most popular places of interest, restaurants galore and a clean modern room with great hotel staff.
Westfield in Shepherds Bush. As soon as we entered the signature London telephone box adorned the shopping centre with an array of colours.
Kew Gardens. It had been 15 years since I stepped into this world of nature and history. I would suggest everyone to visit this garden and get lost into it’s beauty.
St Martins Pub, Covent Garden. This pub has the most intricate detail, when you first see it’s heavy oak façade and floral windows, you can easily imagine out of an Oliver Twist movie. The inside has been conserved impeccably , having a pint here is truly an experience.
Oh Dear, I am on a diet , posting this at this hour is not doing anyone any favours! Fish and glorious chips with a side of heavenly mushy peas. Nothing more to add this was delicious!
Covent Garden is another architectural beauty which keeps being vibrant and alive till this day. When I was younger I used to love looking around a shop called ‘Times Gone By’ with little trinkets and gadget. Today although the shop isn’t there the atmosphere is still lovely.
Jackets Potatoes with Backed beans and melted cheese. Seriously today I had to post this! This lush food was from Covent Garden. The old place we used to visit with my parents was not there any more, however luckily we spotted a small van just outside!
The London Eye, my first time in the capsule. Looking at the view from such height it primarily reminded me of the ‘Eastenders’ team tune .Secondly London is such a fascinating city you can see majestic buildings that have lived through centuries and then you throw in some ultra modern buildings that just mix together so well!
Smack Lobster Oxford Street. We like lobster. I watched Lily Pebbles eating Smack Lobster. We Google Mapped it . We Arrvied. We ATE!! GOALS Actual goals which resulted in a splendid result!
Selfie with the London eye! Special mention to the craziest , most kind hearted , patient and major ‘Fitta’ holiday buddy who made the trip a comedy show basically!!
Madame Tussaud. As geeks and plain old tourists this place is just pure fun! As you can see this is Van Gogh my mother’s and my favourite impressionist so I thought I would snap him a photo as he looked rather realistic.
The Science Museum. A playground for your brain cells. This museum will never seize to impress me. This would be my 4th time visiting and they always manage to include so many new interesting features.
Masala Zone in Covent Garden. Will finish off with these two images at an Indian restaurant who caught our eye the minute we stepped in. You are literally sucked into another dimension with colourful puppets hanging from the ceiling and the rich aroma of Indian spices. Then when you taste the food you just have to savour every bite cause it was so tasty. The flavours where refined and the atmosphere made it a top restaurant.
Hope you liked this journey and it helped you with your future London stay or just travelled along with your imagination.
