Whenever I visit London, I always have significant destinations in mind, hotspots you could call them. These are things that I absolutely need to do to feed my craving for the city that’s full of charm.
The Southbank is one of my all time favorite destinations, strolling alongside the River Thames where Parliament and Big Ben haunt the skyline with Gothic architecture, where Shakespeare’s Globe Theater takes you back in time and where the smells of the finest fresh produce linger from the famous Borough Market. I always find myself heading in this direction on every visit.
To fill my craving for antiques and vintage, Notting Hill is where I need to go, and casting my eyes on the sherbet colored houses doesn’t hurt either. I never leave empty handed whenever I go. That’s why it’s a must, you know you will always find something rare to take back with you.
If you love good wine and cheese I would suggest you go to Gordon’s Wine Bar. It’s one of the oldest wine bars in London and it has the interior to prove it. You’ll find yourself sitting in rustic old cellars with rickety old tables and chairs, with the warm glow of candles burning from old wine bottles. It’s a great place to go for an evening anyday of the week.
And lastly, Liberty of London. I go here every single time I visit even if it’s just to walk around and hear the floor boards creek , it’s a must!
Although there are so many more other hotspots in London I love, I would love to know if any of you guys have suggestions for next time I visit?
