The London Diaries: A walk by the Thames & Harrods



After visiting Covent Garden we made D-tour to greet Londons main tourist attractions The London Eye and Westminster Abbey. It was pretty cold and windy that afternoon, so I consider this long walk not our best idea of that day. It felt a as bit of a reward to spot a cute, almost hidden bakery from behind my wild windswept locks. Seriously, that’s the reason there’s no pictures of me really. Terrible hair. From Westminster we took the tube down to Sloan Square to discover the shops on Kings Road. If you have a hard time dealing with big crowds, like me, I would definitely recommand to check out the shops around Kings Road in Chelsea. There’s much less people here and you can find a fabulous Banana Republic, Anthropologie and a Kate Spade with shop windows to drool over. Oxford Circus and Regent Street may be home to many flagship stores, but I really enjoyed shopping in these smaller boutiques too. An extra plus goes to all the cute, photogenic houses in the side streets. And I can also assure you that you won’t run out of coffee while you’re there. Definitely one of my favorite places we stopped at during our short visit. From Chelsea it’s only a 15 minute walk to South Kensington, which is were we went next. I’ve had a pretty busy schedule, so honestly, I haven’t gotten around editing my photos from South Kensington and our visit to the Science Museum. I still owe you those!
