Back in November Mr T and I spent a day in London together which is always so special for us. It’s where we fell in love, it was home for over three years and we it’s one of the worlds best cities!
We drove up instead of taking the train as we were seeing a late night movie with friends at the IMAX so needed safe transport back home. We parked at Waterloo and as we headed out we spotted the Boris Bikes and spontaneously decided to hope on and cycle rather than take the bus. Oh my, did I love it. I cycled behind Mr T. who mapped our journey on his phone while I was able to just look around and take in the amazing sights.
We ended up at Sloan Square where we parked the bikes and headed to the Saatchi gallery. It just so happens to be in my favourite part of London, Chelsea, and is right on Kings Road – my fave shopping destination ever.
The Saatchi had a special exhibition of Rolls Royce and we were just blown away by the detail and passion that is put into the making of these super deluxe and exquisite cars. They had playful interactive art displays that we got a little carried away with and they even had a Roll Royce xbox driving game that Mr. T had a few goes on.
Best gallery I think I’ve ever been to. So much more than plaques and paintings.
Heading back out onto Kings road we stopped for tea and strolled around to soak in this lovely little area all decked for Christmas.
But we, of course, couldn’t leave this area without heading to ‘the’ London destination – Harrods.
We fall in love with this city all over again every time we visit. It’s so beautiful this time of year, all lit up for Christmas. It was a special day to be in love in London.
When was the last time you were in the city?
