London | Week 5.

So that’s it my last weekend in London is done. It’s gone by frighteningly quickly; but on to the next thing of moving up to Glasgow. The weekend was spent predominantly in Greenwich and Shoreditch.

I found the best little cafe hat serves amazing bacon, sausage and egg baps – Heaps in Greenwich. Proper ingredients, truly messy to eat but definitely worth it.

After breakfast, Ben and I wandered over to Waterstones, to avoid the rain and find some new books. I now have a wishlist of around 13 books to read for pleasure as well as an increasingly large list of cookbooks. Cookbooks are just so pretty and addictive!

After books it was off to the National Maritime Museum for all things nautical. Miss Britain 3 is a record winning boat all the way from the 1930s. Ben was amazed by the number of rivets used!

The previous weekend I had followed the crowds into Greenwich Market and knew I had to eat here at some points. Due to the drizzly weather the market was fairly empty. After wandering the stalls we chose Thai Kitchen for stir-fry beef. One portion was more than enough to fill both Ben and I!

Ben and I also agreed after much debate to go and see The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time, which is one of my favourite books. Mainly because I like maths and prime numbers! If you ever have the chance go and see it. I was in-awed throughout the performance, from the acting, to the storyline, to the use of the stage and the animation. Incredible.

Sunday was spent in Shoreditch at the Art of The Brick, more on that in another blog post!
