Breakfast at The Shard and a wander round London

I'll warn you now, this is going to be a very heavy photo post! But when in Rome and all.... well actually London, again!

As one of my only days off work in a long while, me and my mum fancied treating ourselves to a late brunch at The Shard in London. It actually works out cheaper than travelling right to the top (60th something floor!) as you're already on the 32nd and can see the whole of London, right the way around. 




 I'm sorry if this is making you hungry! We both opted for The Shard Full English, which included basically everything (bacon, egg, spinach, sausages etc.) although it wasn't amazing the smoothies and the view made up for it! It's safe to say that my breakfast view from my bed will never be the same again!


A bathroom with a view....





I won't bore you with all the details but this is how far up we were. Pretty daunting when you look down but, at the same time, literally takes your breath away. It's all so light and airy (if that even makes sense...) being that high up, you can just watch the world go by.


After that we had a wander around Borough Market nearby, which was too good of a photo opportunity to miss! The food there is seriously amazing, not as good as Camden, but it's all so fresh and home made that you just want to eat it all!


Then finally we went along for a tour around The Globe, as we had 2-for-1 tickets. I'm a massive Shakespeare fan and I thank God that my English teachers got me into Shakespeare! It's so inspiring and interesting to see how the plays were set out and the history behind it, so I'm sure I'll definitely be back to see a show soon!

Thanks for reading! I'll be putting up an OOTD in tomorrow's post, so keep your eyes peeled for that one.

  2. That view! I actually might have been more interested in that more than my food for once! This looks amazing. The globe is such an amazing thing to see. I am a Macbeth lover, myself. Great story!
