Well my dears, we left our little Parisian apartment for good this morning. Le sigh. Our time in Paris was so special and got all kinds of wheels turning and there’s no place in the world like it.

We’re lessening the blow of leaving France with a few days in the UK, so I’d love to know if you have any off-the-beaten-path London recommendations. We’ll hit a few of the big, must-see touristy things, but I love to live like a local when I travel, so if you know of any awesome local spots, do tell. xoxo

  1. One of my favorite things to do in London is to go every Sunday to Columbia Road (east London) there is a flower market in the mornings and also you can find some really cute shops.
    I hope you enjoy your stay in London!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I can’t help at all with London, but I’m hoping your next surprise stop will be Dublin! Then I will be very helpful! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy travels!

  3. Your pictures of paris have made me happy. I have dreamed of one day seeing it. I will dream through your pics!

  4. Take an afternoon and hit Portobello Road. Take the tube to the Notting Hill station and you will walk a few minutes until you hit it, but it’s pretty cool (you and Ryan will like it). Small shops, not many tourists, awesome bakery there called Hummingbird should you want to try some English baked goods + tea. SO JEALOUS! Enjoy.

  5. Hi! One of my favorite places in London is Covent Garden! I love everything in Covent Garden: The artists who perform on the street, the cute little shops all around, the musicals and the theaters, having a drink in the Lobby of Hotel “One Aldwych”, the fantastic sweetshop called “Hope and “Greenwood” , having a cupcake at “Primrose Bakery”… Have a look at my blog! I wrote about some of these wonderful attractions! or
    I love London too!!! Have a great time! MiME

  6. In addition to tourist stuff I highly recommend going to borough market,bermondsey street (cute architecture & nice pubs and design/fashion museum), southbank/oxo tower for food and design shops, walk between upper street and highbury islington stations for a picturesque London upmarket high street.

  7. There are tons of little markets in London, for a hip and genuinely edgy one (and not touristy at all) try Brixton market for some informal but yummy homemade food and drinks with atmosphere! Franco Manca, brill sour dough pizzas, is a particular favourite there!
