Despite loving London and even living there for 2 years, I don't go there nearly often enough! There is something magical about arriving into London, I've always loved it! When I lived up North I would arrive into the city via Euston and last weekend I got there via Waterloo and both were just as exciting!
This time, I went around London Bridge and there local area there. It's an area I haven't seen much of, but I am glad I took the plunge and visited. I took my partners daughter and we explored so much of the city in one day, it really was action packed! Next time I might splash out on a London Bridge Hotel and make a weekend of it!
We started the day at the British Museum before a trip to Harrods (just for a window-shop!). We then went from there to London Bridge to meet some friends for a long, leisurely lunch. We browsed a little bit of Borough Market, had a walk around the local area and accidentally stumbled across Doughnut Time - which was a very, very happy accident.
During the evening we met up with some family friends who invited us along to The Sky Gardens. WOW! This place is phenomenal and I am so glad we go to guy. The inside is brilliant and the views across London from 35 storeys up were fantastic.
I really loved the fact that they had the windows engraved with what you could see from that particular frame, it was a really nice touch for someone like me who is geographically challenged!
If you're due to visit London I can't recommend enough.
We ended our day with a browse around the South Bank Christmas Markets before we walked to Waterloo to catch our train home.
I am so glad I got to visit the capital again and it's definitely reminded me that I would like visit again!
