My first real trip to London.
For Sean’s birthday/valentines , Sean and I went to London for the weekend. We had to get up super early, and catch the train for London! It only takes around an hour to get to London from where I live. If you catch the Virgin train – London midland train… Much longer!
I have a lot of pictures to add into this post, so im not going to write too much! We had a lovely weekend, and we had breakfast at a really cute organic cafe.
For dinner we went to Sticky Fingers restaurant where we had an amazing three course meal.
We walked up and down Oxford street for hours and hours. Sean and I stayed in a hotel just opposite from Hyde Park. The view as you can imagine was great. Thankfully me and Sean were put straight into a room, which meant we didn’t have to wait for hours.
Few tips of advice for going to London
- First plan where you need to go on the tube. You can download a free app on your phone to show you the line colours and what stop you need to get off at, we found the tube very easy as we had previously planned, to avoid stress (probably would have had a meltdown if i did not prepare myself for the tube).
- Think about the weather! It rained during our time in London, and i wish i had bought an umbrella or a better hat. But just check online or on your phone what the weather should be, and prepare!
- Bag – if you’re wearing a bag, make sure it zips, and is in front of you, it was so busy when we went, and unfortunately it is too easy for someone to quickly swipe your bag and run away, so just be careful.
- Check what you need to pay for in the hotel room. You may be charged if you drink from the minibar or use any other facilities. There is usually a welcome book which explains this anyway, so just take a look.
I think that is all I need to say, so here are some images, and enjoy!
Let me know if you’re planning a trip any soon.
