TRAVEL- Weekend in London

Where did I go?

Borough Market

Borough market is definitely one to visit if you are a lover of food markets like I am. This extraordinary market still stands strong after 1000 years, making it London’s oldest food market. With an amazing range of stalls including street food, bakery, cheese, chocolate, booze, meat, desserts, fruit, veg… Borough Market is Foodie Heaven (and has plenty of vegan and gluten free options!)

Walk by the Thames

Nothing like a stroll by the Thames on a sunny autumn afternoon. We walked from Borough Market to Tate Modern and got some pictures of the stunning view across the river on the way.

On the top floor of Tate Modern hides a terrace bar which offers a great range of craft beers, Tate Coffee, cocktails, cakes and pastries, and pizza. I did not get the chance to try the food, however I did get to see the spectacular views over London which this terrace provides.

Chelsea

The next morning we spent the day in Chelsea, where we visited a couple of shops and bars, and had brunch at The Locals Chelsea. Check out my previous blog post where I talk about my experience at this café:  REVIEW- ‘The Locals’, Chelsea

What did I eat?

Borough Market

The number of amazing stalls at Borough Market made choosing what to eat quite difficult. Plus, most stalls were giving out free samples! (which is what we are all secretly looking for when visiting food markets).

However, I ate my way through all the cheese, chocolate, pizza and bread samples and finally came across a street food stall which caught my eye. An Indian veggie and gf stall which looked F A B! I opted for their lentil and chickpea wrap which was delicious!

Walk by the Thames

On the way to Tate Modern I picked up this bad boy:

A ‘I MAKE HONEY MOVES’ by Doughnut Time. With Crunchie being my favourite ever chocolate bar, this doughnut was Sweet-tooth Luxury for me!!! Caramel glaze, toffee custard-filled doughnut, topped with a chocolate drizzle and crushed Crunchie… can you describe a more perfect doughnut?!

Chelsea

In Chelsea I enjoyed a delicious brunch at The Locals café. You can find what I ate in my latest Review- The Locals, Chelsea.

Brunch was followed by a glass of Red in Sloane Square; the perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Highlight of the trip

My highlight of the trip has to be Borough Market. The market has a truly vibrant atmosphere, packed with colour, incredible smells and sights, and the most amazing food.
