A Day in London Tour

Sunday, June 7, 2015
A few weeks ago I travelled back over to my homeland roots- the UK, as one of my friends lives near London, we thought it would be best to make a day of it and meet in the middle. After an hour of delayed trains and debating other options (stuff like this really does happen to us), luckily I managed to catch a train and was reunited with her at London Euston. We purchased an all day underground ticket and went on our adventures.

Kings Cross, Platform 9 3/4s

Covent Garden, UK

Covent Garden Indoor Shopping Centre

Green Park

Buckingham Palace

Baker Street

221B Baker Street

Camden Town
The first stop on the tour was Kings Cross Station, which is one stop away from London Euston. If you're a Harry Potter fanatic, take a free picture at Platform 9 3/4s.

Then take the underground to Covent Garden for some lunch, make sure you take the lifts as Covent Garden has 193 steps to walk up. I highly recommend Bills for food if you want to follow my lead, get the crispy crumbled halloumi , hummus and tzatziki for starters to share, then a burger for yourself. If you have some room, get the desserts and sip some green juice to balance all this out ;)

Go for a stroll around Covent Gardens, listen to the talented violinists who play beautifully in the markets and maybe buy some treats for yourself at the independent shops.

Beep your underground pass and take the line to Green Park, walk through the Park and enjoy the blue skies and if you have time, get a free deck chair and enjoy your day. If not, walk further down and saw hello to Queenie, if she's at home the flag will be up in the tower. Take selfies with the guardsmen and do the royal wave.

Afterwards, go to Knightsbridge and pop into Harrods for some window shopping and afternoon tea, the store that's a haven for shopaholics.

Chanel your inner Watson and Holmes and head over to Baker Street, take in the detective vibes and see if you can solve some cases too.

Finish your day by visiting Camden, also the cheapest place to buy souvenirs- go to the food markets if you're hungry for a huge range of food choices. Sip on some cheap cocktails with your best friend and get your Asian Flush on (if you're me)

If you ever visit London, I hope you had as much fun as we did.
