A short London break

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I have been wanting to take a short break away to London for a while now, particularly in the later part of the year. Whether that will happen or not is another thing - damn you commitments!

Regardless, I thought I would write a post of all the things I plan to do in the hopes it might give you guys some ideas should you be planning something similar. I have divided this guide into 3 distinct categories.

PLACES TO EAT
+ Laduree, Harrods: What would a visit to London be without dining in Laduree. As you may already be aware, Laduree is home to beautiful macarons and pastries. They are the best macarons I have ever tasted. This place screams luxury, but I would confidently say that it is money well spent.
+Aqua Shard, The Shard: I am not particularly fond of heights, or places that have an open view of what's below, but I have heard so many great things about Aqua Shard. This cosmopolitan restaurant is situated on the 31st floor with panoramic views of London. They offer British cuisine.

THINGS TO SEE
London is full of places to see and I assume everyone knows the famous tourist attractions! So whether it be a peruse in the London History Museum, a walk along the Tower Bridge or even a lift up to the 87th floor of the beautiful skyscraper, The Shard, you will definitely have something to do and lots to see.

And if you are a theatre kind of person, seeing a show is a must. On my list is The Lion King (of course) and Wicked. I have already seen Wicked, but because it's a classic I just have to see it again!

PLACES TO SHOP
What's a trip to London with a bit of shopping?

+ Harrods: Even if you don't buy anything, I think a trip to Harrods is a must just because of the experience. Nuff' said.+ Sephora: I absolutely love Sephora, it's like an absolute dream. The variety of makeup is just amazing and you are sure to come with a small bag of goodies to try!
+ Tourist shops: I might be in the minority here, but I absolutely love touristy shops. Yes, they may be brimming with tack at times, but souvenirs hold memories so many great memories.

PLACES TO STAY
And of course, finally a place to stay. I recently came across Rosewood | London, if you are looking for something luxurious this beautiful hotel is ideal. Not only does this hotel allow pets, they also have their own spa and fitness suite. The decor is divine and the location is appealing. Rosewood is quite centrally located, not far from Covent Garden and Soho, so you are fairly close to all the major tourist locations. London has a great underground system too! If you are looking for something a little less pricey you can, of course, find an alternative. 

I hope you enjoyed this post, these are just some of my ideas at the moment. Do let me know of your recommendations in the comments.
