London: Wondering Around.

Wednesday, 16 September 2015
I am finally sitting down and writing a post after the busiest couple of weeks ever! It started off at staying in Birmingham with my brother, sister-in-law and niece for 4 days. I then got whisked away to go stay with my mum for like another 4/5 days. Luckily enough she lives pretty close to the centre of London so we did loaaaads of exploring and I wanted to share it. 
I will probably split this post into two. Maybe like one half will be a wondering around/what I did post (this one) and the other will be the bits and bobs I bought whilst I was down there.
So, starting with the exploring part! The first place we visited was Camden, my fave place ever! The little market stalls and independent shops were full of nick nacks, food, clothing, art, records, jewellery basically everything you could think of! The people who worked there and the people that were just wondering, like us, were so unique. I actually enjoyed seeing the different styles and cultures everyone had. You could spend hours just roaming around and you probably still wouldn't visit everything it has to offer.


The next day we went to the West end, I think it was anyway...if I get any of these places wrong I do apologise! I am a Northern and London just baffles me, haha! Anyway, we roamed around, visited an art gallery, went into Liberty (it was a definite must visit on my list), went into Hamley's and got a toy rat thrown at me, just don't ask. 
We also went to Covent Garden where they had this massive balloon installation, it was pretty cool.
Later that evening we drove up to St Albans to have tea in a pub which claims to be England's oldest pub. I reckon the one in my town is deffo older though!


On Friday we stayed pretty local. We just visited all of the charity shops searching for vinyl records, I picked up an absolute beaut, but you will have to wait and see which artist it is in my next post, mwhaha!
On the final day we went to Brick Lane. From being young I have always wanted to go to Brick Lane, it was the only place I wanted to visit if I ever went to London. Although I had a fab time there, and enjoyed a salt beef sandwich (you HAVE to try them if you ever get the chance), Camden was still the place I loved the most. I just seemed to fit in more and I felt like I'd been there loads of times before. Still, the graffiti in Brick Lane was amazing!


That's just a quick summary of my time in London. I could have gone on and on but I didn't want to bore any of you. I hope you enjoyed this travely post, next up will be a London haul but for now, byeeeeee.
P.S. Sorry that I didn't get to many pictures and that the ones I did get aren't very good quality. I wanted to enjoy my stay as much as possible which did involve my phone being thrown to the bottom of my bag most of the time.

  10. I lived in London for 2 years but my husband has family in the north (proper Geordies ;) ) so I know how overwhelming London can seem when you walk around! You're so lucky to have seen the installation, it looks incredible and seems to be popping up absolutely everywhere at the moment!

    1. My mum has lived down there for a year (we are from G Manchester) and she is used to it now! I suppose you just get used to the lifestyle! And the installation was amazing! I didn't expect it when I walked in haha!
