On the 25th I flew home for some Christmas family time. The Robson clan reunited! Minus my sister. Side note – my beautiful sister turned 30 yesterday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY EM! Anyway, my family ditched me on the 28th so I had some free time after training. And seeing as London is my favourite city in the entire world, why not do a little blog about it? Managed to hit some of the popular spots combined with a few of my faves. I’ve been a total grinch with the snaps and decided to crop out all of the tourists. This will probably sound terribly mean but it serves them right for being the slowest walkers of all time.
Let’s begin with a fave, the Monument!
I like the Monument as it’s usually not that busy. Probably because of all the stairs involved. As you can see from the picture above, the struggle was so real. So worth it for this view!Stop 2 – The London Eye, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Due to my grinchiness (not a word) at the huge amount of people around it, I didn’t take any photos of the front of the Abbey. Just the windows. Stop 3 – A fave, Westminster Cathedral. The tower of the Cathedral is available to climb the majority of the year, sadly closed on the day I was there. But having been up before, the view is a beaut. Stop 4 – Grosvenor Square. I love that just a street away from the chaos of Bond St, there’s a beautiful quiet place to do a spot of reading. The two pictures below are of the little 9/11 memorial in the square, it faces the US Embassy. Stop 5 – Finished the day off with a totally candid not planned at all photo by the Christmas decorations at Claridge’s. Check back next week for the evening part of my favourite things. Lots of love!
P.s I’ve had a few people asking where my outfits are from. Is that something you want me to add into each post? We could all be twinsies.
