UPDATE!!!!! Ladies I am in london right now and love it!!! I landed yesterday morning and have been all over the city on my own….my husband gets here tomorrow around 11am and I can’t wait to have someone to explore with! Eating at restaurants by myself is a bit lonely lol.
so for everyone who gave advice, thank you!! Here’s what I’ve done so far and what I have planned with my husband for tomorrow & Saturday….
-spent 2 hours lost in Heathrow. Thought I was on the Heathrow express to Paddington Station when really i was on an airport terminal shuttle going in circles. Whoops.
-went to Harrods, where I window shopped, bought some Jo Malone cologne and then had 2 glasses of bubbly at the Champagne bar 🙂
-went to Zara and went bonkers shopping. I CANT BELIEVE how much better their prices are in the U.K. Vs US!!
-came back to the hotel on the early side and went to bed (so tired!)
-went to Hamdens toy store to find a gift for my friend who had a baby last week
-shopped in Soho for 3 hours. AMAZING shopping!
-grabbed some lunch and a glass of wine at a pub – Clausale I think it was called? It was meh.
-walked from Soho to Convent Gardens (so cool!), poked around there for a bit, walked down to the Thames and then walked along the river, saw the Eye, Big Ben, parliament…walked to Buckingham Palace (couldn’t find will or Kate 🙁 ) then walked back to Paddington. Feet are killing me!!!
Friday (woooo husband gets here!!!)
-Going back to Buckingham palace so he can see it, and to Westminster Abbey
-have resos for Afternoon tea at the Hamptons Bar
-he made reservations for some apparently amazing gastropub for dinner. (Craft beer nerd)
-want to hit Camden market in the AM
-Tower of London tour
-Champagne experience at the London Eye
-off to the Harry Potter studio tour for the rest of the afternoon! Hear it’s like a 6 hour time commitment.
anyway, sorry for the long recap I’m just having so much fun here and I’ve been alone for 2 days so it’s nice to “talk” lol. Loved all of your advice and it definitely helped as I wandered the city!! Wish I had more time here to do more!
