On our third day in London, we took a little walk around the area (we were staying by Russell Square) and ended up at a cafe called Tuttis. They had all kinds of smoothies, cakes and sandwiches. I went for a soya latte which was so good and my sister and I shared a slice of apple tart. Again it was a really nice day so we sat outside, this doesn't happen enough in Edinburgh because it's always so bloody windy! Haha. Afterwards the two of us went to sit down and enjoy the sunshine in Russell Square while my dad went away for a wander and a pint. Whilst sitting there a guy casually strolled through playing a trumpet, only in London.
Later in the evening, we went for food at a little Italian restaurant nearby our hotel. We go to it every year as the pizza is delicious and it always has such a buzzing atmosphere. Then it was time to go see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Oh my god, I loved it! The set was so wonderful and the actors were amazing. I don't think I've ever seen a bad show in London, previous ones have included The Lion King and Wicked. But anyway, I definitely recommend it!
The next day my sister and I went into Camden to begin our "shopping day". Haha, we always have one. My poor dad can't be bothered so he always goes off and does his own thing. Well done to him for not getting lost on the tubes though :P We went into Rokit Vintage and then stopped off at a vegan cafe beside the canal. They had so much yummy food for sale, but as we knew we were meeting my dad for lunch we decided to get a smoothie each. Mines was a mango based one and my sister's was a cacao one. We then took a look at some of the market areas, and I picked up an amazing new tapestry for my wall which I'd been after for ages.
We met our dad on Oxford Street for some lunch and then did a bit more shopping. As you can imagine, it was a long and tiring day haha, so for dinner we just headed to Wagamamas.
Hope you enjoyed this post, I have one more left!
