Finally, our last day in London City. It was a quick getaway. Feeling reluctant to leave. Fortunately, our travel does not end here. Next stop, will be our main travel stop. Will be sharing next.
Today we will be doing a little walking around town. Walking pass a few main attractions in the city.
Brunch @ Enrique Thomas
We went over to Manmouth Street (Near Convent Garden Station), beautiful place with plentiful of stores and restaurant. We went over here first as my partner wanted to visit the Shu Uemura Store. Since we were there, we went over to Neal St. for some delicious Jamon (£7.05) and Paella (£10.80) at Enrique Tomas. Can't miss out the delicious Cerveza (beer) (£3.50).
The Romantic Convent Garden
Next we walked down to Convent Garden. One of the place i really love. Very small but a lovely and happening area. Also the venue that one of our brave Malaysian did an astonishing marriage proposal where you can find in youtube.
Walking Around River Thames
We did not took the underground train instead walked all around the city centre. Heading down towards the River Thames. First walking along Strand Road. Heading towards Trafalgar Square. Beautiful place and having the National Gallery Museum. Large, stunning and free admission!
Then walked towards Whitehall Road, passing the stunning Horse Guard Parade. Nice place. Elegant Royal Guards. It is funny why you need the police around went you have Royal Guards. The Royal Guards should do the Guarding!?
Finally, down towards the River Thames, walking along the Victoria Embankment towards Westminster. Where you will stumble upon the remarkably huge London Eye, Big Ben Tower and Westminster Abbey.
Really great experience! London have been beautiful as ever. However, i must admit that 5 years ago, my stay in London City for over a month was much more satisfying. The city was more lively and colourful compared to now. Now seems slightly more dodgy and old. Having a lot more beggars and unfriendly looking foreigners around. Selling stuff or doing some gambling scam thingy along the streets. All the best, Londoners. I will be back!
Went back to the hotel. Took our luggages. Went over to King Cross Station. Took the underground metro all the way back to London Heathrow Airport. Did some shopping. And finally departing to Reykjavik, Iceland.
