A Magical 5 days in London – Recap of my 2018 Trip

Hey everyone! I can’t stop reminiscing on my trip to London and wanted to share my entire itinerary with you all! London is SUCH a fun city with so many different areas to explore. If you’re wondering why I went, I have a friend who has been living in London for about a year and I decided it was past due for a visit. You can find round trip flights to London for decently inexpensive so I figured why not. Below is how I spent my 5 and a half days in the city!

For a full list of what I did (and some things that were recommended to me that I didn’t make it to – click here to download a printable version of what to do, see and eat in London)


WHAT I DID


Saturday: (Jet Lagged AF)

  • Wandered around SOHO and North London while I attempted to stay awake
  • Grabbed food at Dishoom (yum!!! Check out all my other favorite food spots here!)

Sunday:

  • Spin Class at Ritual (kind of like a Barey’s Bootcamp, SHRED or Orange Theory class). The changing rooms at this place were so dreamy! If I lived in London I would be at this place all the time!
  • Brunch at The Blues’ Kitchen
  • Strolled a local flower market (only open on Sundays)
  • Bouquet making class (so domestic of us I know)
  • Indulged in cupcakes and hot chocolate at Peggy Porchen’s
  • Got a Cronut to-go at Dominique’s Bakery down the road
  • Grabbed a drink at The Garage – they had really good flavored tonic water for Gin and Tonics
  • Ate the cronut for dinner and watched I Tonya

Monday:

  • Walked from my friends apartment to the area by the London Bridge.
  • Grabbed lunch at Grind (and a croissant from Alchemy on the way – because vacation…)
  • Explored the city with Antonine Buchet who I met through another blogger in Chicago. He is seriously the BEST! We had such a blast! If you’re ever in London and want some pictures taken I highly recommend reaching out to him!

Tuesday:

  • Grabbed Brunch at the Attendent (The best Avocado Smash.. their food is AMAZING)
  • Walked to Buckingham Palace
  • Grabbed dinner at Ceviche
  • Drinks at Night Jar (such a cool place)

Wednesday:

  • Took a day trip to Bath (see my BATH post here)
  • Rode bikes around Hyde Park with my uncle (he is a pilot and was in town for work)
  • Grabbed dinner at Da Mario

Thursday:

  • Went to Ledenhall Market, did a little shopping and then headed to the airport for my next adventure in Portugal!

Overall it was an amazing trip and I can’t wait to go back!

Thanks for stopping by!

Xoxo,
