London

Okay so a few weekends ago my friends came down to visit and we spent a day in London. I’ve been to London before a few times but some of the others hadn’t so we made our way round as tourists for the day!

after getting the train from Leamington we jumped on the underground and went straight to Camden Lock to grab some lunch in the markets! We all went in different directions to try out different food and the nicest looking one was definitely the loaded fries!

Sorry about the photo quality had to screenshot from a video! But how amazing do they look?!

After filling our bellies we continued on to Buckingham Palace. We stopped off and took some snaps and chilled out on the stairs for a while. It was really busy so we walked on towards Westminster along the edge of the park which was so nice to see such a beautiful park right in the centre of busy London!

We reached Big Ben and Westminster and went on to see the London eye. So many tourist spots in the one area so Westminster bridge was really busy!

We went down and booked in for the London dungeons but had a bit of a wait so we IMG_0442walked along the riverside and came across an area called the underbelly festival which was amazing! We went in not really knowing what to expect and were met with a garden with massive flowers, picnic benches and food and drink stalls. We grabbed a drink and chilled in the sun playing cards for a while it was great!
We went to the dungeons and had the best time it was such a laugh and we all got a fright at one point (or more!) which made it hilarious for everyone else!

After the dungeons our day was pretty much done. We walked up to Trafalgar Square and sat by the fountains for a while to chat about where to go for dinner. We decided on prezzo as they have so many options and a fab range of gluten free as well! After dinner it was home time so time to head for the train and get ourselves back to Leamington.

We definitely managed to cram a lot in to our day but you would ideally need at least two days to get round everything! We all got home and fell asleep pretty soon after which was well deserved after the amount of walking we done! I might have had sore feet at the end of the day but I’ll definitely be back!

Leamington Spa

Leamington spa is such a lovely town and is so well looked after. There is so much to see here just by walking about. The parks are absolutely beautiful and I took this photo below in the Jephson Gardens.IMG_0337

I love the days I can spend walking about leamington and taking photos.

There are so many different restaurants and cafes about as well as pubs. There is a great coffee shop called Spa Town Coffee which does the most amazing coffee I’ve ever had and they’re so good at latte art as you can see from this photo!

IMG_0462There is also a great place that sells bagels called The Steamhouee which has the most amazing combinations on bagels.

Theres also a few touristy places including the old pump rooms which has lovely stained glass windows inside.
