It hasn't gone unnoticed that Rob and I have been enjoying the city a lot lately, as we are trying to see and do as much as possible before we finally leave for good. Last Tuesday, Rob took off and we planned a nice day out in London, just the two of us! First, we hit our local breakfast place of the moment, The Breakfast Club, for a yummy brunch. We tried to have brunch here before but the queue was so long we had to give up. This time, however, we were seated in no time and I was very excited for my big pancakes with berries and vanilla cream. The ambience is very cool, it reminded me a little bit of the cafe' at The Standard in Hollywood, the hotel we stayed in during the first leg of our honeymoon.
Next, was Leicester Square for the premiere of A Royal Night Out, an account of a previously untold story of the Queen, then princess Elizabeth and her sister, princess Margaret, escaping the palace on VE night. I don't think I have ever been at the cinema for a show at 12.30pm, it was almost empty but that made the experience even more special for us!
We then headed north to St. John's Woods to pay a visit to the iconic Abbey Studios and of course we crossed the ever so famous zebra walking before venturing west to Warwick Avenue and eventually stopping at Clifton Nurseries where we relaxed in the palm house with a refreshing orange juice and a homemade slice of cake. Clifton Nurseries is a real gem, so serene and wonderful I could have stayed there relaxing and breathing in all the good smells from the flowers for hours!
Oh London London, how much do you have to offer that I haven't even heard of yet!?! One lifetime is not enough to discover all your treasures!
