So, as I said before (here) I’m staying with my dad in London for the week. More specifically we’re staying in a little apartment in Earl’s Court and it’s super close to the tube station so on the Sunday that we arrived at the apartment we went into London for the day. Here’s another picture filled post about our day.
Burlington Arcade – full of really cute, old fashioned shops.
Fortnum and Mason – which had every food that you could think of, and I just wanted everything.
Their packaging was all really cute.
So much good chocolate and coffee.
Stopped at a Whole Foods Market which was really interesting – it’s an American chain that’s come to London, and it’s so interesting to look at all the different brands.
Aiming for Carnaby Street we went through Kingly Court and ended up stopping there for a drink, which became lunch…
Whyte and Brown is where we stopped to eat. We both had a chicken skewer with tzatziki, flat bread and beetroot mayonnaise. Whatever seasoning was on the chicken was amazing, and it was such a good lunch. Amazing.
I was quite a fan of Kingly Court, so there are quite a few pictures…
Carnaby Street was quite an experience. I still get such a surprise when I see some shops, who’s brands I’ve only seen in adverts in magazines.
A tiny Shakespeare overlooking a pub with his name.
We watched a Chinese dragon show…
I had some Bubble Tea.
There was a pretty cool band, who had so much energy and jumped around while playing their instruments. I felt bad for the girl with the cello!
M&M’s World was crazy! We just looked inside for a second and then left, because the crowds were just ridiculous. It did smell amazing – they pump through the scent of M&M’s into the store (making it smell like actual heaven) and the employees handed out free M&M’s to customers. That is what customer service is.
We saw this little place and decided to stop in for a Margaritas, which I’ve never had before. It turned out to be such a cute little place, with great décor and really nice snacks and drinks.
Pork Tacos, mmmmmm…
It turns out that I don’t like Margaritas … which was disappointing, because I was really hoping that I would, so I got a Mojito instead, and it was so good, a proper traditional one.
It was such a nice day, and it was so great to spend time with my dad after not seeing family for a month.
