On our third and final day in London, we tried to pack in as much as we could before our train at 6pm. After our night at the Hilton (it was an alright sleep, not the best), we walked to Trade on Commercial Street for a spot of breakfast which was kindly recommended by Charlie, so thank you lovely! I opted for fluffy pancakes with blueberries and oh my, it was incredible – we were quite lucky to find two amazing spots for breakfast which did not disappoint. The café itself was quaint and I love independent coffee houses.
We were quite lucky to discover that our hotel had an open roof so the guests were able to visit during the day and night for a quiet drink whilst enjoying the view. The weather was on our side during our trip and we were able to see both The Shard and Tower Bridge from the roof terrace. The view is rather spectacular and costs nothing to see!
Once we had checked out and left our belongings at the hotel, we hopped on the tube to South Kensington to see some of the beautiful and ridiculously pricey houses. Due to our bad timing, the queue for The Natural History Museum was over an hour (it was still the festive period after all), so we opted for the Science Museum which is next door. A funny little gadget told me that I’m 38% happy…
We had four hours before we needed to be at Euston and with Christmas money in our pockets, we headed towards Oxford Street for a spot of shopping. If you’re around that area, make sure you grab a Ben’s Cookies. We bought a box of eight for the train home and HOLY DUMBLEDORE, they’re the absolute best. We didn’t do as much shopping as we hoped but with a quick visit to Harrods, Liberty and Carnaby Street, it was safe to say that we were ready to sit down on the train.
