My weekend exploring the city with Abbey, in pictures!
Started the day with an English breakfast and carrot juice:
View of the Thames River and London Eye:
Christmas market on Southbank. This place was full of cute little gift stalls and food spots. We enjoyed some hot toddies overlooking the market:
Beautiful Christmas lights around Oxford Street and Regent Street. Some of the big department stores also had beautiful window displays in this area:
Camden Market. This place was so cool! Full of stalls with food, crafts, gifts, clothes, Knick knacks, basically anything you could ever want. There was a labyrinth of stalls both in and out of doors:
Abbey (my wonderful London pal!) at Camden:
We had a classic English afternoon tea (complete with sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and a giant pot of tea) in the Basement Tea Room. It was under the rest of Camden Market, and very peaceful compared to the bustling market overhead:
Me, very excited about the tea:
Syon Park Enchanted Woodland. We went expecting some trees lit up with different colour projected lights, on a 1.5 mile walk around an ornamental lake in the woods. We were blown away by all the special displays, fog, the building, and the magically eerie atmosphere:
It was a fabulous and busy weekend…. as the saying goes, “If you’re bored of London, you’re bored of life.” There is definitely no end of things to do in this city.
