You know what they say: when man is tired of London, he is tired of life. Well, we can’t agree more. London always offers something new, interesting and exciting. No matter how many times we visit London, we are always surprised: by an exhibition, a restaurant, a trend, a view… It can definitely be overwhelming but with the help of our friends and a slow-paced (wink!) approach, we try to take it easy and let the city surprise us. If you follow us on Instagram you probably know that we spent last weekend in London. So here you have the mandatory post with are our latest discoveries in this fascinating city: London Southwark: the vibe and the food market are fun and relaxed and not as hip as Shoreditch, which we find a little bit too much for us. We are not that cool… Anyway, stay tuned because we will publish a whole article about the Southwark food market! Waterloo Bridge has (probably) the best views in London. Rain or shine. Right or left. Fact: the same pictures are different every time. It seems like the city is always changing, moving, adapting. However, it’s the same old London everythime. It’s encouranging and welcoming. Something we’ve only seen in Madrid. This is not new, but it deserves a moment anyway: the Ebi Bites in Sticks and Sushi are THE BOMB. And they taste even better when they are washed down with cocktails on a Saturday at 15 p.m. after spending the whole morning in the National Gallery. We’ve realized that the National Gallery is our very favourite museum in London. Together with the Tate Modern, that is. The Mayflower is the best pub in London. We have to come back just for those cheese platters! We spent a great Friday night with our friends in this lovely pub, which happens to be the oldest pub on the river Thames. It has a great terrace overlooking the river and a classic dark wooden interior. You better book because it’s tiny! Even if it’s pouring, you must never miss the chance of walking aimlessly and getting lost in London. This time we explored Soho and we found a wonderful place to eat (more on that next Monday!) and a fabulous court yard with the best shops in the area: Ham Yard Village.
London is always trendy and absolutely design-focused, so it’s no surprise that it hosts one of the most avantgard, curated and evocative jewellery line: Eiger. We discovered some of its pieces in the Design Museum and we couldn’t love them more!
Spending a few days in London is the best way to get inspired, don’t you think?
