London City

This weekend we went to London by Eurostar.
 Mom's on tour πŸ˜ƒ
So daddy had a lot of work at home, but he did a good job.
It was the first time I left them at home with daddy
for a whole weekend but
it was all right,
they went PokΓ©mon hunting, like I was expecting.
We stayed in the Blakemoore Hyde Park Hotel****,
located in Westminster, near Notting Hill & Hyde Park.

The nearest underground station is Queensway (Central line, red)

 
 



The Hotel was fantastic!!
We stayed with 3 girls in 1 room.
We got a 
large room with 2 big bed's and everything present: hairdryer, large mirror, the right plug connections, room service, a bath & shower, big closet, 2 TV's, ironing board + iron.
The staff is really friendly and helpful.
Rooms are clean and spacious.
Breakfast has a wide range of choice and was fresh.
And You should try the Cocktails in the bar.

 

 
 
 
First day, we went to Notting Hill, Portobello Road Market.

Huge street market with vintage, antiques,
collectibles, new fashion, food.
It's very crowded on Saturday morning, but cool to visit.

 

 
In the afternoon we did the "Secrets of London bike tour"
with a Dutch guide.

This was so much fun to see London from a different point of view.
Cycle around London, like it's your hometown πŸ˜† 
My highlight were definitely Brick Lane, Diagon Alley & Leaky Cauldron(from the Harry Potter movie), Central London Marina and to cycle over Tower Bridge!!
 
 


 


 


 


 

Second day we went to Camden TownShoreditch.


Camden we did before so we knew this is a must-see when you come to London. We did the Camden Lock market again which we love.
You’ll see eccentric characters, all different types of fashion, cool pubs, street artists and urban street art all over the place.
A must-go is Cyber Dog, the coolest store EVER.
It's just like a club when you walk in, take the escalator down and try some glow in the dark rave clothing πŸ˜‚ Fun guaranteed!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Shoreditch: London’s most interesting neighbourhood.
A very trendy, artistic and alternative district in East London.
 
Food markets, Vintage shops, Street artists,
Trendsetters, Vinyl shops, Urban art, Pop-up shops. 
This is a real inspiring place to be..
 
Brick lane is a popular area in Shoreditch.
 
This was my ultimate favourite stop
and I want to go back to check out the nightlife
in this hipster place !!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Last day, we took it to Covent Garden and Piccadilly Circus.
We dined in Soho and had a look in China Town.
Did some window shopping in New Bond Street πŸ˜‚
Here are all designer shops located, because my wallet couldn't take this, we went over to Regent street for the more affordable shops.
Victoria Secret is also located in New Bond Street and girls won't be girls if we didn't do some shopping. ❤πŸ‘€ 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 One last tip, when you visit London it's good to buy an oyster card. You can use it for any public transportation.
You can top-up every time and refund at the end of your stay.
The underground is so easy to use in Londen and will get you everywhere.
