Come on a festive weekend to London with me!

I’ve recently got back from a weekend in London where, as usual, I crammed lots of activities in. If you want to see what I got up to, keep reading!

This is somewhere I’ve wanted to visit for soooo long and it didn’t disappoint. The decor was beaut and HOW amazing are the drinks?! I loved my brunch too- I would definitely recommend. On the pricier side so this was definitely a treat!

This was honestly soooo fun. Equipped with a bar and restaurant, this crazy golf was a great way to spend the afternoon. I somehow even managed to get a hole in one which I was way too excited about! 

This is a must visit if you want a fun indoor activity to pass a rainy afternoon or even evening in London! They are open until 1am and serve alcohol too.

I feel like San Carlo is always a safe bet - you know what you’re getting and the food and service is always fab! Ciccheti serve smaller dishes, with 2-3 to be enjoyed by each person but I highly recommend sharing all dishes so you can sample more of the menu!

The prawns were to die for and the parmesan basket gnocchi was divine. The sharing dessert was also unreal - I would highly recommend - you also get a shot of Masala wine too!

For brunch, we went to Viola’s in Covent Garden. A female founded and ran business, this little cafe serves up a wholesome menu from breakfast, lunch, dinner and even afternoon tea. 

I had the Taco Pancakes which were served with white chocolate milk chocolate pouring pots, fruit and edible flowers. This was hands down one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had and 10/10 for presentation! My Mum had the Banana Bread French Toast which was also amazing! 

I would highly recommend visiting here when you’re in London. It’s also only a 2 minute walk from Covent Garden market so it’s an amazing location for sight seeing. 

I love Covent Garden, especially around Christmas time. It feels so festive and I love all of the stalls/shops.

We took a pit stop at Somerset House on our way across London and I’m so glad we did. They had a Hotel Chocolat truck serving up hot chocolates and ice creams. I had the salted caramel hot chocolate and it was out of this world!  Somerset House currently have an ice skating rink too which is open during December.

My Mum really wanted to do this and I wasn’t that fussed initially but I found it fascinating. I loved all of the history behind the area - I don’t really know much about the Tudors so it was really interesting to learn more. The Crown Jewels were insane and definitely worth a visit! We came at a really good time as a lot of the jewels will be removed when we next have a coronation so it will be quite empty if you were to visit then!

The main attraction - Winter Wonderland. I could honestly visit here every single year and never get bored. It’s so fun and so festive! In my opinion the best Christmas event around!

Eataly is one of my favourite places EVER. I had the Ricotta cheese & truffle sausage pizza and wow. It was on focaccia bread which was life changing (I want all pizza on focaccia now). Yum.

I also love wandering round the shop - it’s the best at Christmas as they have so many festive Italian treats!


London is one of my favourite cities to visit around Christmas and this trip did not disappoint.

If you’ve got this far, well done & I hope you enjoyed reading! :)
