I can’t believe that my last London bucket list update was 6 month’s ago, it’s genuinely scary for me how fast time is going and how we’re almost in full on summer mode here. I don’t think I’ve actually been into London as much over the past 6 month’s as I have previously so sadly I’ve not ticked off quite as many things off my list as I’d like but I’m determined to get some things booked soon.
Here’s how I’ve got on over the past six months.
Visit Kew Gardens
I didn’t manage to visit Kew Gardens but this is mainly because of the time of the year as I want to go there in the sunshine and it’s only just started getting warm. This a definite thing for the summer time as I’ve only ever been at Christmas and I didn’t get to see many of the flowers because it was so dark.
See School of Rock
Again another thing I didn’t manage to do as we’ve had quite a busy six months and I’ve just not managed to book anything but I’m determinded to find a deal and book me and Luke tickets at some point soon even if we don’t even go until the end of the year. I just need to see this again as it was so good when I was in New York and I want Luke to experience it.
Visit the Globe Theatre for a tour
I had a London day with my best friend in April and we finally managed to head to The Globe Theatre for a tour. I’m going to be honest I don’t even think I’d really seen the outside before the tour but it was such an interesting tour, especially as our guide was both informative and hilarious. Inside it was smaller than I had expected but then I’m used to larger London theatres so I shouldn’t have been shocked. Now we’re keen to go to a show there and experience it from the other side.
Have ice-cream from Milk Train
I had planned to go to Milk Train during a London day with my friend but we had a huge afternoon tea and were just so full that we didn’t fancy ice cream so we gave it a miss. It’s a definite on my list as I want ice cream and candy floss.
Go to Chin Chin labs
I finally made it to Chin Chin Labs in January but actually ended up in the Soho store as opposed to the Camden one I’d seen on numerous occasions. We opted for some hot chocolate which was so nice and although it was quite rich it wasn’t sickly. We also shared some ice-cream which was chocolate nitro ice-cream with burnt white chocolate on top and it was so good. I definitely know I’ll be heading back at the sweets were so nice.
Have ice cream from Soft Serve Society
Another ice cream place which I just haven’t managed to tick off my list. Soft Serve is a little out of the way so I will get there one day but sadly the past six months just wasn’t the right time.
Have afternoon tea at the Malmaison, London
On the same day that me and my best friend did The Globe Theatre tour we also had afternoon tea at the Malmaison hotel in London which was so nice. It was such a reasonably priced afternoon tea at under £25 and it included some lovely bits including a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel, mini burger and egg mayo sub roll to start followed by loads of treats and a scone each (although I could have eaten about four of them!) My friend has recently become a vegetarian and they offered a veggie version of all the items which was great for her.
