My sister Rachelle who also does hair married an English man this summer and moved to London. I was dying to go visit her, and had never been to London. While we were there we decided to make a quick trip to Paris for a little sight seeing and shopping. Paris is only a 2.5 hour train ride away! I’ll be sharing part 2 on my blog this week of things to do in Paris.
London was a blast and it’s always good to go somewhere new when you have the inside scoop on everything. We of course hit all the sights, London eye, Big Ben, tower of London, Buckingham Palace, and Palace of Westminster. We also went and did a little shopping. If your looking for high-end shops go to new bond street. If you are looking for the department store that have everything, go to Selfridges, we spent an entire day in there, its that big. If you are a foodie, you definitely need to visit borough market. If you love a little theater, Kinky Boots is a great one to see. If you are looking for a good hotel to stay in, we stayed one night at the St.Pancras which is right in the middle of the city and next to the train station. We stayed there so we could hop on a train over to Paris. Another great hotel that is right next to Big Ben is the Marriot. I wanted to capture some cute photos while I was there and found a company called flytographer. You put in the location you are visiting and a concierge set up a shoot for you. I was very impressed with this company and would recommend them if you are looking to get some great photos of your trip!
