I’m sure it’s the same for anyone living in a touristy place. You don’t feel that need to go and see places, because hey, you could do that any time right? Except it just never happens.
We live in an amazing city and whilst we’re living pretty central I want to make the most of it – I don’t want weekends to fly past in a pyjama-Netflix blur, and especially now that Spring is trying it’s best to arrive I’d like to get out and do those touristy things!
So, first up, The Shard! (I always feel the need to say that in the voice of the Toy Story aliens for some reason – I think it works though 😉 )
I’m pretty sure that this costs around £25 (just to go up a lift!) but hey, I still wanna see – that’s how they get you, kids! I’ve been to Duck and Waffle so have seen the view from there, but wouldn’t it be amazing to be even higher, especially on a clear spring day.
Believe it or not I’ve never been to Camden Market! I mean I’ve been to Camden, just not the market itself. It’s not really Nick’s kinda thing at all, but I would love to go and just mooch around one Saturday or Sunday afternoon, plus there’s loads of good food places around there, so I think that would sway the boyf. 🙂
The London Eye
Another tourist attraction I’ve yet to visit – we actually had free tickets for this a while back, but managed to go when it was school hols, so the queue was absolutely ginormous. We gave up in the end *sad face*.
Chelsea & Notting Hill
Just the area in general I guess. I’d like to wander round, looking at all the pretty houses and shops, maybe go for brunch somewhere – I’ve read lots of blog posts on good food places over that way. Generally just pretending I’m rich for a day..! I’m pretty sure I can fake a Made In Chelsea accent…
The Science Museum
Last year we did a few museums – London Transport Museum, British Museum & Museum of London, but I’d really like to go to the Science Museum – I know Nick would like to go too, I think he went as a kid and really enjoyed it – we can relive our childhood! Or basically just act like a kid for a day. 🙂
I visited Madame Tussauds as a kid and LOVED it. Obviously there have been many additions in the 13 odd years (ouch) since I last went. Quite simply I want to grope the Johnny Depp mannequin. That’s allowed, right?
I know I’ll be adding plenty more places to the list in the coming weeks, so these are just a few to begin with – let me know if you have any other recommendations!
