London, Things to do, Travel

5 things to do in London

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset1. Jimmy’s bar, Shoreditch 

I have an undeniable love for led lights, so as I stepped into the bar it was unsurprisingly one of the first things I set my eyes on. A great vibe, not to mention a celling full of bras – something you have to see with your own eyes. Strange, but cool.

2. Portobello Road, Notting Hill 

I’ve lived in London my whole life & this was the first time I’ve been to Portobello Road. If you love street art then it’s probs a cool place for you.  There’s so many places to eat or have a drink so you won’t be starved of choice. There’s a few vintage shops, a lot of stalls selling jewllery, and multicolour houses which make for that perfect insta shot. Yea, mine’s pretty shit U can do better !! 

Literally fell in love with the Princess Diana X Forest Gump piece. Candid.

3. Lights of Soho, Soho

I have an undeniable fascination for neon lights. So, Lights of Soho is the place for that. Admittedly, it’s smaller than I imagined, but still a good few lights to see. Plus it’s free (winning ??? Yes). There’s a bar/cafe to get a drink whatever ya fancy. Be warned, it closes at 6pm – I’ve read a lot of people have trouble because they don’t realise it closes to the public at 6pm – so if you’re passing by be sure to have a look! 

5. Shoreditch 

Shoreditch has an arty feel to it with lots of street art. There’s a load of food places, cool bars & vintage shops. 

Once you’ve explored the area you HAVE to go to Queen of Hoxton when they have their tipi up (check on their site think… roasting marshmallows on the fire, faux fur throws & vodka!!! After 10pm the tipi is closed, so you find yourself making your way downstairs to the bar & end up spending the rest of your night there.
