You know that famous British saying "Keep Calm and Carry On?" Well that definitely seemed to be our motto during our second day in London! We started off our day by going to the Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour which you can see more of on my previous blog post. When we were done with the tour we headed off to Wimbledon because my friend is a huge Roger Federer fan! Unfortunately, nothing was open when we got there so we ended up just taking a couple photos from the outside. After we were done we headed off to Covent Garden which was a fun place to walk around and eat! Our first stop was Laduree since my friend and I have never had the infamous macrons from Laduree before and were eager to give them a try! Afterwards, we decided to share a cookie from Ben's Cookies which was recommended by a friend of ours. Definitely worth a try because they were surprisingly delicious. Covent Garden was really a fun place to walk around because there were a bunch of street performers on every corner.
When we were done with Covent Garden we headed towards the London Eye since we had tickets to go on it around 9PM. Since we got there a bit early we grabbed our very first (ended up being our first & last) fish and chips! I don't think I am a huge fan of fish and chips to be honest. Fried fish isn't one of those foods I crave to eat EVER! But since I was in England I felt like I had to give it a try and I am glad I did cause now I can say I tried it!
After we were done eating, we went on the London Eye and I felt like we went at a perfect time! The sun was beginning to set by the time we got to the top and it was so nice seeing the sunset and having this beautiful London backdrop to gaze at. I really enjoyed the time I got to spend looking at this incredible view that I've been dreaming to see for years!
To end the night, we headed off to the Shard to get some drinks and relax. We ended up going to a place called Aqua Shard located on level 31 of the Shard. This place has an incredible view and a killer vibe! We were lucky enough to find a table for two near the window with the view of the London Bridge! This place was pretty expensive but it was well worth it for us since we wanted to see the London landscape at night and I felt like this gave us an opportunity to do so!
Next up on my blog is going to be more about the tour my friend and I went on because day 3 was the start of our guided tour! So stay tuned!! :)
