We wanted our last day in London not to be too busy because we had a long trip down to Plymouth the following day. We started off the day with bubble tea and then moved on to the Natural History Museum, a favourite of mine because I can remember me and my mum going together a lot when I was younger. My favourite part was (and always will be) the dinosaurs!
After the dinosaurs, it was off to Hyde Park to relax before an early night.
Notting Hill was one of my favourite places, but Camden is definitely up there too! They’re very different but they both have the same quirky charm that just makes you want to spend months just wandering and looking round.
After much wandering, it was time for lunch. Luckily we were right next to a Mexican restaurant which turned out to be incredible!

It was very difficult to spend just one day in Camden. Realistically you would need to stay for a few days to see and do everything, but I’ll definitely be coming back to Camden as soon as possible!
Our 2nd day in London was the busiest of the week and involved a heck of a lot of walking round central London. We had booked to go to some of the most well known touristy spots, starting (and finishing) at the London Eye.
Our first stop of the day!
After the London Eye we headed over the road and waited in a very long queue to get into Westminster Abbey. It was only when we got to the front that we realised we were in the wrong queue and would have to wait for another half an hour in a different queue. And with that realisation, that was the end of our trip to Westminster Abbey. After taking a few pictures of the outside of the Abbey, we made our way to our next destination.
Next stop, Tower of London! After a brief fish and chips stop, we went for a wander. Unfortunately the queue to see the crown jewels had reached the 3 hour mark and neither of us were willing to wait in a queue again after Westminster Abbey!
This sign was the butt of many a joke because we are in fact, children inside (hehe, butt).
Next it was off to St. Paul’s Cathedral (see what I mean about a busy day?).
After admiring the blue trees, it was back off to the London Eye to see the city at night. Unfortunately, I haven’t quite mastered the art of taking pictures at night so there aren’t many pictures of the night trip on the London Eye.
August has been a busy month with 2 holidays booked and A Level results day (I’m off to uni in a few weeks!), so there hasn’t been much time for anything else. Our first holiday was a trip to London, and to make our way down to Plymouth to see family. We arrived in London in the morning, so we decided to spend the afternoon exploring Notting Hill, which has now become one of my favourite places. Now I’m just waiting to win the lottery so I can buy my dream house there. Anyone who knows what the numbers are going to be, drop me an email!

The Bubleology shop where I first encountered bubble tea
A half day wasn’t enough to explore the whole of Notting Hill, so I’ll definitely be coming back to see more and eat more cake!
P.S This isn’t the last that you’ll be hearing of bubble tea…
