380. London | Snapshots

Kensington Palace London
Some random photos taken around London! I think I'm due for another vacation soon as I'm nearly done all the posts from there (finally). The photo above is Kensington Palace. Rydges hotel, one of the hotels I stayed at, was about a 15-minute walk from Kensington Gardens so I took a walk there one day.

Mercedes G Class
It was a nice walk with lots of nice cars along the way, including one of my favourites..the Mercedes G

I walked around the gardens for a bit, but didn't spend too much time there as it looked like it was going to rain (like always in London). I liked it though - will need to go back again sometime the next time I visit London, on a sunny day.

Having a mille-feuille at PAUL. I love their patisseries.

I stayed at a hotel close to Kings Cross station for a few nights. It's a great base for travelling all around the city.

Whole Foods London
Liberty London

Cafe Liberty London
I love AQ/AQ. I'm not sure if any of their clothes can be found here in Toronto, so I had to pay a visit to the store on Carnaby Street when I was in London. I bought a dress there (which I love - will post it in a future post!) then went to have lunch at Liberty. 

Buckingham Palace

Another few nights, my hotel was close to Victoria station and about a 15-min walk to Buckingham Palace. I walked there one night for some night photography, and went back again during the day so I could walk through St. James' Park too.

Another 15-min walk from Buckingham Palace you will reach Big Ben & The London Eye.

Yotel Heathrow Airport
I flew to Paris for several days near the end of my trip, then flew back to London before coming back to Toronto the next morning. I didn't bother going back into the city for just one night, so I stayed at the airport/Yotel, - a nice little airport hotel. Their rooms are really cool. I booked it for half the night so I can take a quick nap and shower before catching my flight. 

Cafe Rouge pain perdu
In the morning, I went for a quick breakfast at Cafe Rouge. Their pain perdu is delicious.

Then lunch at Oriel before going on my flight. I ate here a couple years ago too, when I was flying back home from London. Sat at almost the same spot.

  1. The mille-feuille looks so good! I also like Cafe Rouge, it's a good place to have food. My parents have been eyeing the Mercedes G for a long time but since they got bad service at the garage, they didn't buy one. I can't wait to be in London next weekend. Your photos make me really look forward to my trip!
