Why I Love London...

I've been to London twice now and every time I just fall more and more in love with the place. 

We first went in February 2015 as a late valentines trip, we only went for 2 nights and our hotel was right next to the London Eye and Big Ben so a great location and it was easy to get around. When we went back in for a weekend in March 2016 we stayed for 3 nights and managed to do loads! I already want to book another trip. Because I've had such an amazing time both occassions I thought I would do a post all about the reasons London has my heart and why I think I'll always love it.
One of the things I love the most about London is that nobody knows who you are, its such a huge place and I love it when we go as we know it's just us two and we don't know anybody there, and I can fully relax. A lot of people probably don't find London that relaxing but I do, it's a bit of an escape. There are so many places to go and visit, as I said the hotel we stay at is right next to the London Eye so even though we haven't been on it yet, it is literally right there for us when we do, and just across from that is Big Ben which leads to Westminster Abbey, we went for a walk to it when it was just going dark last time and it looked beautiful at night. Last time we were there we also went for a walk down the Southbank and found the This Morning Studio which was totally out of the blue, but something else which is great to see, it's weird now to watch it knowing we've walked past it. One of my favourite moments from the last trip is when we went down the Southbank and just outside the Tate Modern we sat on a bench and just had 5 minutes to take it all in. It was so, so lovely and makes me smile just thinking about it. We then headed onto Borough Market, which leads me onto another thing I love, the food! The market was amazing, there was so much choice, we only ended up getting a few things but if we'd had more time we'd have definitely tried more, they had special breads, paella, homemade cakes, chocolates, spices, wine, just everything you could imagine and it's one of the first places I want to go next time. We had some great food in London, we tried Shake Shack for the first time which we don't have here and Crosstown Donuts from Whole Foods, we had a cinnamon swirl type one and it was incredible, next time i'm definitely having more than one because it was just insane how good it was. Whole Foods in itself is such a great shop and I wish we had one closer to us, every time we go we pick a few things up just because they have so many things we wouldn't be able to find here and the fresh food is great aswell, the first time we went we had these chocolate truffles all made of healthy ingredients and they were one of the best things I've ever tasted.
Something else I really love about London is the Tube, the first time I wasn't sure but it's such an easy way to get around and we usually just get day tickets and then it saves so much time trying to get from one place to another. I think both times we've been to London, I've ended up crying just because it involves so much walking and no matter what shoes I wear, my feet just can't handle it! I am so unlucky with shoes so in London, its a nightmare, last time we went on the second night we got back to the hotel and I remember just sitting on the bed and sobbing because they hurt so much! so the next day we got day tickets and it helped so much and made it much more enjoyable. The last thing I love is the people, everyone we spoke to was lovely and we were always lucky to get the nicest taxi drivers, they were so chatty and really wanted to find out about our day. 

I can't imagine a year where we won't go, I just love everything about it and hope we carry on having weekends there for years and years! I'd live there if I could.

Have you been to London? What do you love about it?

I've only been to London once, was for a day so i never really done anything apart from take the tube, so it's great to find out about more things to do. Hopefully when I visit again I'll be able to do some of these things like London eye. It is so big & I love how lost in the place you can get. Great post.
