A week in London

A week in London

I spent seven days in Shoreditch, a neighborhood located approximately 20 minutes east of Central London. Though I've done a lot during my stay, I do feel that I've barely scratched the surface of this gorgeous and huge city named London.

As a result, I still have a few experiences on my London bucket list that I need to accomplish the next time I visit:

  1. Ice Skate at Somerset House
  2. Visit the Winter Garden, in the Landmark Hotel
  3. View the London Skyline from The Shard
  4. Watch a football match at Wembley
  5. Travel to the English countryside.

The Tate Modern, London, UK

The Tate Modern is located on the banks of the River Thames in a former power station. It houses both British and international art: Jane Alexander, Andy Warhol, and Pablo Picasso to name a few.

I absolutely loved getting lost in the exhibits of this museum! Be sure to not miss the observation deck on the top floor of The Tate's Switch House - where you'll be treated to views of St. Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge, to name a few.

Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, UK, has an immense collection of art ranging from textiles, sculptures, paintings, to photography. My favorite is their photography collection, which is thoughtfully curated. The museum even has a beautiful courtyard for you to take a break and take in the serene surroundings.
