1 – Covent Garden 2 – Leicester Square 3 – Brick Lane 4 – Trafalgar Square 5 – London Eye
Last week I took my mam to London, it was her birthday the previous month (was the only time I could get off work 🙁 ) We’ve been together a few times but had never stayed more than a day! My mam took us to all the standard touristsy places when me and my brother were younger but it was so nice to see the places again not that I’m older and was able to document the time for myself. We stayed in the Covent Garden Travelodge which I would defiantly recommend if you’re look to stay somewhere in central London for cheap. The staff were so helpful and it was such a great location (not sponsored haha) but yeah, day 1 we got there about 10am literally dumped our stuff after check in and went straight out and headed around the corner to shop in covent and just take in the London atmosphere. That night after a very long day of shopping we headed back out to Leicester Square for some food in China Town and browse Soho. If you haven’t been to Leicester Square and Soho at night, PLEASE GO!! The atmosphere is amazing.
Day 2 we got up early to go to brick lane and shoreditch to check out the highly anticipated American Apparel factory outlet, and I wasn’t disappointed and I probably spent wayyyyyyy to much money haha! We headed to Oxford street, Regent and Bond street lusting over stuff that I can not afford 🙁 haha (one day!!)
We also did all the tourist attractions such as Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, the Mall, V&A, National Portrait Gallery, Soho and loads more all in 3 days.
We were both so shattered by the end that the journey home we just slept haha but I had such a great time I didn’t want to leave neither did my mum. And it was so nice to chill with my mum as since I’ve moved back out I hadn’t seen her much.
There are more photos on my Instagram to check out if you want to! 🙂 hope you’re all enjoying your bank holiday, I have work at 7am so an early night is in order for me.
