London attractions, England

Hello and welcome back to my blog, todays post is all about London attractions. These photos are from where I did my internship and visited the D&AD New Blood festival.

Tower of London

We only spent an hour and half at the Tower of London because of how the train times worked out however, I would definitely recommend staying a bit longer there if you can as we didn’t get to see everything.

London Eye

I have never done the London Eye but, Sam had done twice before. I loved it but Sam’s not so fond of heights, haha oops. For the London Eye I would definitely recommend buying your tickets online as it was so busy! For both tourist attractions we got 2 for 1 entry with our train tickets. If  you are travelling to London by train I would check this out as it saved us sooo much money!

Central London

Luckily stayed with my lovely friend Lucy for the rest of my internship. The weekend I was with Lucy it was lovely weather. We travelled into central where we saw a bit of the Pride parade at Piccadilly Circus, went to Convent Garden and visited the Wild Food Cafe.

Wild food cafe

The Wild food cafe in Neal’s Yard is an amazing vegan cafe which is great for me as I am vegetarian and lactose intolerant meaning I could have all of the sweet treats! I had the salted caramel slice and a cocoa smoothie which was a definite chocolate overload. I completely forgot that cocoa is so much more rich than normal chocolate! Moreover having to take the smoothie away with me as I couldn’t drink it all.

Hyde Park

On the Sunday Lucy and I went back into central and visited Hyde Park. At Hyde Park we hired out some pedalos, lounged around on the grass and listened to the British Summer Time festival that was also happening that weekend.
