As I haven't ticked off all the points from my 'To do in London' list the other day, I decided to go up to the capital again this week. One of the main things I wanted to do was go to Borough Market as I have never been there but have heard so many amazing things about it. I absolutely loved strolling through the food hall, wishing I lived in London so I could actually buy fresh food (the fruit and vegetable section looked SO good!) After having something Italian for lunch, I then went to the Monument. It was a lovely, warm day by the way so I soon regretted the leather jacket & jeans! After getting lost somewhere among hundreds of business men on their lunch break, I decided to take the tube and give up on trying to walk to my next stop. After a short wait, I walked up 311 steps to have a view over London (mainly Tower Bridge & the Shard). I'm not gonna lie, the walk to the terrace was harder than I expected; as the stairs go round in a circle, I soon started to feel a little dizzy and was kind of terrified to fall down, but I made it to the top without any tragic incidents :)
After walking back down, I decided to go to Leadenhall Market which is absolutely beautiful. Again, lots of business men & women on their lunch break so I felt kind of out of place, but it was definitely worth it! As per usual, I then ended up in the Covent Garden area where I had a little stroll, went to Wasabi (which I'm now obsessed with!) and caught my train home.
Now I definitely feel like I need a break from all the walking around London and rushing from tube to tube, but I can't wait to go back to London again soon, although it is always very stressful, I just absolutely love it there.
