When in London

By  | 

London is second to my travel bucket list and despite visiting just once, one part of me will always have a place for each and every new city or country I have been to. My heart is made to travel. I do love Fashion and Beauty but I will always have a soft spot for traveling.

Somehow, I’d say the movie Harry Potter played a big role to wanting to visit and travel to London. First off, London has the Big Ben and the famous red telephone booths that look absolutely great on photos and movies. I must add however that traveling there can be quite costly. Planning ahead of time is absolutely a must and can’t just be a spontaneous trip out of the blue. With careful planning, it isn’t far fetch to find cheap London hotels and dining out can be as costly or affordable depending on where one would choose to eat at.

Traveling around London is quite easy so make sure to try to use The Tube – it is the underground train system that had its name derived from its circular tube like passage.

To get a great glimpse of Westminster and take a beautiful panoramic shot, check out “London Eye” – the giant Ferris wheel in River Thames. The entire structure of the Ferris wheel is 135 meters tall with 120 meters in diameter / width.

The tower bridge is an iconic symbol of London that had been named after the Tower of London. The bridge connects The Borough to the main city of London and crosses the River Thames. The tower bridge is often mistaken as the “London Bridge” and also has nothing to do with the song London Bridge is falling down.
