On Tuesday, Paul and I hopped on the train and headed to the big smoke to visit my brother and his girlfriend,the weather was stunning,the food was delicious and we had a wonderful few days just chilling and mooching about.
More often than not,when I go to London I end up in Oxford Circus and to be quite honest it gets boring so it was nice to visit some of the outskirts of London and peruse around shops,bars and restaurants that we hadn't been to before.
We visited the Cutty Sark,bummed around Greenwich,trekked up to the observatory(the view is stunning if you haven't done this you need to) boarded the boat to Embankment,walked around Hackney,Brick Lane,Soho and had a snoop around spitalfields market (an absolute must for antique lovers).
It was a much needed/deserved break,although the tube strike was a bit of a nightmare and came at the shittest time possible,we still had a laugh.
I love little getaways they break up the mundane everyday routine and are perfect for a change of scenery.
Have you been anywhere worth visiting recently?
