48 Hours in LONDON
This past week I had the opportunity to attend London Fashion Week with the ME Hotel. And I wanted to give you guys a bit of insight into how I spent my 48 hours there. It was a total whirlwind of a trip- but so so worth it! It was my first time in London and the city totally and completely took my breath away. I can see myself spending way more time there in the future!
Start your day off by grabbing a coffee and a pastry at Lundenwic (the chocolate croissant is to die for) and then walk along the Thames River to the Tate Modern. One of my favorite things to do while traveling is explore art museums by myself. There is such a calmness that comes with viewing art. After exploring the Tate, check out the vintage art book store right on the corner. I dont remember the name of it, but I bought the most amazing 70’s Matisse book for next to nothing. Then catch a cab into Soho and grab lunch at Bronte, and bring a camera. The interior of this restaurant is so adorable! After lunch, spend the afternoon exploring soho- vintage clothing shopping at Beyond Retro, record shopping at Sister Ray, and give yourself enough time to grab afternoon tea at Sketch before heading to Dishoom for the best indian food in town.
Day two start yourself off by grabbing a coffee and catching a cab into Shoreditch to explore the Brick Lane Market. Walking this for a bit, try some street food and check out the vintage stands before heading up to the Columbia Flower Market, which is open every Sunday. I was lucky enough to be in London over a weekend, so planned my day around the flower market (which is open until 2). I walked the market and bought flowers, because when in London! After the market grab a pre lunch pint at the Royal Oak and then head over to Campania for a home cooked Italian meal. Its the perfect Sunday Brunch spot. Then continue your walk north and spend some time reading in Haggerston Park. Otherwise go explore the adorable shops near the creak- making sure to check out Artwords for magazines and books, Pavilion Bakery for a quick snack, and dinner at Poco is cozy and brilliant.
London is easily one of my favorite cities- I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
