This year will be my fifth year living in London and I feel that I’ve barely scratched the surface with this incredible city so I thought if I write a post about all of those things I’ve been ‘meaning to do’ for the last five years then it might actually happen. My new years resolution was to quit procrastinating so what better way than to write a list and get going on it!
Since moving to North London I rarely go south of the river or anywhere near West London so these two places have been well off my radar but I’m well aware that these are must visit places in London so this year I’m going.
I love museums but I always find myself going back to my favourites (National Gallery and Tate Modern) so I’m going to these ones this year. Hopefully I go to the V&A before their wedding dress exhibition closes as I’m so keen to see Kate Moss’s Valentino dress.
I adore going to the theatre, I have seen my fair share of shows in the last five years. Ranging from musicals, comedies, dramas and also plenty of famous faces. I love them all and every time I leave the theatre I always say “we must go to the theatre more!” so this year I’m making it happen! I have also never been to the Royal Albert Hall, I don’t really care what I see as long as I get there. The same goes for The Globe, obviously I’d like to see something that I know so I can actually follow it but I’ll settle for whatever.
On my very first trip to London I went up the London Eye, it was fab but unfortunately I had no idea what I was looking at so it would be great to go up again and actually point out all the familiar places. I flat out refuse to pay the cost to go up to the viewing deck at the Shard so I think I will settle for a brunch up Aqua Shard for a view.
Last year I had to cut back on my ‘partying ways’ as first of all drinking = putting on weight and I was trying to trim down for the wedding but drinking also = expensive. So this year I hope to get out and about a bit more. I want to go back to Fabric again because I had one of my best London nights there and I never returned. There’s something pretty awesome about dancing the night away and emerging at 6am bleary eyed during sunrise.
I am the first to admit I am 100% no foodie! But after visiting Heston’s Dinner my senses were awakened and I soon realised I should probably give some of these post restaurants a go. I’ve been trying for few weeks to get a reservation at a desirable time with no luck so I shall keep trying. I also sadly have been to Broadway Market so I’ll get there and go to my husbands favourite Borough Market as well. After reading Emma’s posts about delicious brunches I realised my Saturday and Sunday mornings were majorly lacking in Egg’s Benedict!
So there it is, my London 2015 list! As new years resolutions go my track record isn’t great (hence this years resolution) so look out for future posts about all of these London adventures. Care to join me for any of them then let me know!
