A Tour Of London


Back in October Mum and I took a trip to London where she was going to a Gary Numan concert, I can see you all wondering who Gary Numan is, a star from my mums childhood is whom. After a long three hours on the coach we headed straight for Oxford Street to check out the special Lush store, I have a whole post on this experience here. I think I managed to convince mum that Lush is good as she actually bought something.


After we checked out Lush we headed over to Shoreditch to our hotel The RE Shoreditch a nice little hotel. There was quite a large queue at reception however I could see the receptionists doing their best to settle customers in as quick as possible and soon we were greeted. One thing I was unaware of before arriving at the hotel is that they take £50 off your card on arrival incase you use any extra's at the hotel which was not a problem for my however I did hear some customers complaining to it at reception.
In the evening we headed to the Gary Numan concert where mum thoroughly enjoyed herself.




The next morning we headed back to Oxford Street in search of somewhere to eat where we could have breakfast. We settled on All Bar One a cute little restaurant with a wide range of menu items, it was coming up to noon but we still fancied breakfast so we chose from the breakfast menu, find out what Mum and I chose here.


I couldn't leave London without finding somewhere to get macaroons from so I found the Laudree Paris Macaroon shop that was a short walk away from Oxford Street and got 21 macroons with flavours ranging from chocolate to strawberry marshmallow to Marie Antoinette. Hooray, I've finally tried macaroons however sadly it was a little anti climactic.


And finally, there was no way I was leaving London without seeing some of the famous tourist sites so we hopped on a bus and then a boat and toured around London. I wish I could say it was as chilled out as it sounds however we underestimated how long it would take us and ended up missing our coach and needing to change our tickets but we eventually got home (even if it was a little later than anticipated).
