72 Hours In London

Trevor Square
Kings Cross
London Day 1
If someone was to ask me what my favourite place in the world is I would hands down say London. I have been there so many times and every time is different and special in its own little way. Me and my boyfriend recently took a lil' holiday and hopped onto a train to Kings Cross for a few days, so since we got quite a lot done in 72 hours I decided to share what we got up to.

Que 10000s of photos.

Day 1.
Once we arrived and checked into our hotel (with an amazing view of Kings Cross/St Pancreas station might I add!) we leaped onto a tube to Oxford Circus for a teeny-tiny bit of shopping, jokes it was a lot. We wondered down Oxford Street for a couple of hours into all the good shops and of course I had to make a cheeky purchase in Selfridges. Got myself a Chocolate Orange Ben's Cookie which I cannot stop thinking about, like how can a cookie taste so perfect?! Once we were shopped-out we decided to walk through Harrods and drool over all the amazing pastries and chocolates and then continued our walk down into Chelsea. We spent ages taking photographs and imagining living in these amazingly grand houses. The houses down London are so pristine and dazzling, you always come across little mews too with fabulous interior.

We headed back to the hotel, freshened up then went for a Chinese which was just round the corner from our hotel. After we filled our boots with yummy food we decided to go on a late night walk around where we stayed. Played a little bit of Pokemon Go and ran around trying to catch Pikachu like a 5 year old. Once it got around midnight we headed back and went straight to bed.

Day 2:
This was definitely the most filled day out of the 3 we got loads done and our little feet were throbbing by the end! We woke up bright and early and got the tube to Camden to visit the market and the Cereal-Killer Cafe. After picking up a few bits from the market we devoured a bowl of cereal from CKC. I ordered 'Unicorn Poop' which I posted on Instagram and was quite funny to ask for and my boyfriend ordered 'Luckiest Charms' which was packed with lots of marshmallows. This was so yummy but so sickly I couldn't finish it but it was somewhere to tick off my bucket list. We walked off a bit of the cereal by heading to Primrose Hill (which has a stunning view of London!) and on the way I spotted some beautiful colourful houses which of course I photographed. Which one would you live in? I'd definitely claim pink!

In the afternoon we decided to head up to Notting Hill/Holland Park and went for something little to eat in Farm Girl Cafe. This is such a stunning place to eat and I so wish I went sooner! I ordered the prettiest latte ever that is sprinkled in all these rose petals, very picture-esc. I'd definitely recommend this place if you love healthy foods it is on Portobello Road. After spending a few hours in Holland Park we decided to go back to the hotel for an hour and then head out for dinner. We went to Polo Bar which is in Liverpool Street, I ordered the steak burger with sweet potato fries and that burger is hands down one of the best I've had! Afterwards we decided to spend the full night site seeing Big Ben, London Eye, Downing Street and Buckingham Palace. This was definitely the way to spend our last night in London, the city never sleeps.
Day 3
Neals Yard
Day 3:
On our last full day in London (train was at 10pm) we decided to visit Regents Park and head to London Zoo. Regents Park Garden was amazing if I lived in London I'd definitely come here all the time. The zoo was so much fun despite how hot it was and how sore my feet were. The giraffes and monkeys were definitely my favourite, but the worst (yes there's a worst) was the spider house, yes you heard me there was a house where you could walk in with giant spiders just dangling on webs. I didn't go in as that would be my worst nightmare but my boyfriend did. We spent most of the day at the zoo since it was huge! But afterwards we headed to Covent Garden for last minute shopping and found the secret Neals Yard alley. London is filled with all these little alleys and mews with cute areas to eat. We had a couple of hours to spare so we sat outside Buckingham Palace in the sun, grabbed a bite to eat and then wondered Kings Cross Station shops and of course I went into the Harry Potter shop!

I had such a good time at London as I said before every time is different and exciting. I would love to live here even if it was for half a year just for the experience. Definitely going back near Christmas again as that is my favourite time of the year to go.

What is your favourite thing about London??
