Long time no..speak? I’m back after a much needed blogging break. I did intend to start blogging again about 2 weeks ago but my internet broke, sods law. Anyhoo, I am now back, ready and raring!
I have just got back from a lovely weekend in London with my mum. We got the coach down at 6a.m on Saturday, and came back on Sunday late afternoon. We arrived in Haymarket just after 12o’clock and went for some lunch at Byron Burger..Oh Ma Gawd, the best burger i’ve ever had..before heading to Her Majesty’s Theatre to watch The Phantom of the Opera which I had never seen before so I was incredibly excited. I had no idea what an amazing show it was going to be! It was a slightly darker musical than i’m used to, hello Lion King, Wicked..but was incredible none the less. I couldn’t recommend the show enough.
We then headed to our hotel just inside of Essex for a lovely meal, a couple of drinks and an early night!
We woke up well rested and heading into London to spend the afternoon in Covent Garden, my favourite part of London! I love the small quirky shops and the atmosphere. We did a little bit of shopping, before stopping for some fresh juice at the Covent Garden Kitchen, it was delicious and really perked us up for an afternoon of shopping! We went in..quite a few shops..my favourite (as always) being the Moomin Shop. It reminds me so much of my childhood and I just love it. My mum hadn’t been in before so I was excited to show her.
We knew, before starting our weekend, that we were going to have dinner at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Union Jacks and the que to get in was so worth it. I had a Pimms and my mum enjoyed a Gin Fizz which I tried, and they both tasted amazing. We then tucked into a feast on Fish & Chips (Mums) and Bangers & Mash (mine) which was unbelievably good. I will definitely be going there again on my next visit to the city.
I had such an amazing weekend, and it was lovely to spend some quality time with my Mum.
What is your favourite thing to do in London? Where would you recommend?
