So… @phebrown and I just had a weekend in London.

It. Was. Amazing.

Here’s what we were able to fit in a few quick days:
– London Bridge
– Tower of London
– Tower Bridge
– St. Paul’s Cathedral
– Buckingham Palace
– Shoreditch
– Spitalfield Markets
– Regent St / Oxford Street
– Fashion Showcase for London Fashion Week

Not bad for two days!

Here’s some pics, hope you enjoy!

Cheers

Tower Bridge, and a seriously brown river.

St. Paul's Cathedral was pretty amazing. Fun fact; my Late Great Uncle used to be the organist here.

London seen from the Golden Gallery at St. Paul's... The view was definitely worth the 528 stairs walked up to get there!

This place has the best salt-beef bagels in the world. Pretty sure that's not an exaggeration.

The Beefeater tour of the tower of London is a must. They've got an amazing knowledge of history, and are master story-tellers too.

We went to a free, public showcase for London Fashion week. Not really my scene but a new experience that was definitely worthwhile.

I’ll be starting work in two days, so the opportunity to take a quick weekend getaway is most definitely not taken for granted.
