Happy Thursday; my beautiful souls; these couple of months have been a roller coaster!! But as I always say; there is a reason for everything. Remember being Optimistic is key 🙂 I know I owe you this blog post and it’s finally here! Can’t wait to share with you my short experience in this magnificent city.
First of all; I feel that you need to be aware of that London is expensive!!! Something I didn’t know… please don’t judge! But if you plan ahead; you can do a lot in only 2 days!! I have friends in London therefore, I saved $$$ in lodging; so I highly suggest you to get an https://www.airbnb.com/ and stay at Knightsbridge. Honeslty, I just can’t get over of how breathtaking this area is and well situated. You can experience high-end restaurants and shops, including the iconic Harrods department store and the Victoria and Albert Museum. But whatever you do when you get to Knightsbridge, you should start with the Hyde Park. One of the largest parks in London!!!
On your first day; you can take it easy; since you’ll be jetlag! If you arrive during the day; I would recommend you to visit any local coffee shops. London’s obession for coffee is real so you’ll not regret having breakfast, brunch or just coffee at any coffee shop. You’ll see so many that you’ll feel overwhelmed LOL
Here are a few coffee spots near Knightsbridge you can visit and snap the perfect IG photo!!!
After you filled up your belly with some delicious pastries and addicting coffee 😀 You can walk around and explore!! Or you can take a 10 min. Uber ride to Piccadilly circus. Once you arrive to Piccadilly circus; you are surrounded by several major tourist attractions, including the London Pavilion and several major retail stores. So many nightclubs, restaurants and bars are located in the area and close to the energetic streets of Soho. Now, if you plan accordingly you can take the metro or uber to the Buckingham Palace London, UK (a 12min car ride from Piccadilly circus). Here is a link to checkout some free activities: https://freetoursbyfoot.com/things-to-see-in-piccadilly-circus/
On your last day; you can head to https://www.seacontainerslondon.com/ A remarkeable area and award-winning restaurants. You’ll be in walking distance to Tower Bridge, Hay’s Gallery and the London eye.
My beautiful friend Rache had this day planned therefore; thanks to her I can share this amazing experience with you. She took me to the Sea Container; formely known as; the Mondrian for brunch https://www.seacontainerslondon.com/eat-drink/sea-containers-restaurant/ This place has the perfect view and the best skybar!! So if you are a lover for views; this marvelous place is for you!!
I’m not going to lie; I was already tired by the evening but it was all worth it. I feel in love with london and a magical place called https://sketch.london/ You can visit this marvelous restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Although, it would of been nice to have breakfast here. My friends and I decided to go at night; so I can experience London’s Nightlife. I can actually say; this place is out of this world!
From futuristic egg-shaped bathrooms to a pink self-playing piano, which keeps diners entertained between courses. This place has four seperate restaurants, each with their own spectacular design and menu. My favorite room is The Gallery; only because is all pink <3 Again; pls don’t judge me 🙂 The atmosphere is increadible and the service is outstanding! I’ll definitely go back. Sketch is not your everyday restaurant; so if you feel a bit extra or just want to feel like you are in a different world; this place is for you!
