My last stop before heading home was London.
London is one of my favorite cities and I’ve been many times through out the years as I have family there -which is nice as I save on hotels so more $ to shop! The shopping in London is AMAZING I think I might even love it more than New York (dare I say…) There are so many different store chains and such unique boutiques and markets I always go home with a bundle.
I’ve done most of the touristy sites over the years, so it was nice to be able to visit a place without feeling the pressure of needing to go and see everything – especially in a city like London being so big and with so much history. But if it is your first time, the one spot I wouldn’t miss is the London Eye I have been twice and being able to see the entire city in a modern-day Ferris wheel is pretty incredible.
This time we mainly hung out and met up with family and friends had some great meals, visited some fun pubs and did a lot of shopping. Yay!
The one place in London I had yet to visit was Stonehenge. I have always wanted to see this historical site so one day we took the most idyllic drive out to the English country side to the area of Wiltshire – seeing many herds of sheep along the way.
We got to Stonehenge and I was very impressed, it was also really nice I got to see it with my traveling sidekick my sister Erin, my Aunt Mary and Uncle Paul it made the experience that much more. Added bonus? My Aunt & Uncle’s English Heritage membership got us the ability to jump the line – skipping passes 10 bus loads full of tourists – sweet!
A few other must see spots in London would have to be (IMO):
Have you been to London? What’s your favorite spot? Would love to know.
