Oh yes, today again some London based pictures! After making the blogpost last week, some friends said that they
didn't understand the 'feeling' that I was talking about in the article. They say the first thing you do when visiting London is going to the Big Ben. Well… I don't agree ;) ! As already said, it is fun to see mister BB from time to time, but I think London has much more to offer! So my advise to you guys, for your next trip to London: go visit the places where you've never been before. Just take the tube to somewhere and discover the area by yourself.
Here you have some nice tips:
1/ Hampstead: If you like architecture (for example the Hampstead theatre), then this area is definitely worth your visit! There are some nice interior shops as well, but quite pricy… (tube station Hampstead)
2/ Islington: Upper street is full of nice and fun shops/lunch places, whilst Camden Passage is full of cheeky antique shops -> fun fact: Tony Blair used to live in this area (tube station Angel or Highbury & Islington)
3/ Shoreditch: For the moment this is one of my fav's! There are a lot of cool independent shops and it seems like all the hip and trendy people are gathering here. Still a lot to discover, so again on my list for the next trip! -> delicious: Pizza East: part of the Soho House group and presenting so much more than just a regular pizza (tube station: Liverpool street)
