Travel Diary: London #01














For a lot of people a weekend in London isn't a big deal but for us it's a long way to go and a big change from home. With a 6.30am flight and travelling nearly 700 miles I was so excited to be spending my Valentine's Day, and long weekend, with my boyfriend.
 Our first stop, after checking into our Travelodge (booking on budget to help my shopping fund) we headed straight out to Wembley for a bit of outlet shopping. I wasn't too impressed with the London Designer Outlets mostly because I was on the lookout for completely different things but my boyfriend fell in love with the Adidas and Superdry shop. 
Before heading back into central London and the hustle and bustle we filled up in the Handmade Burger Company. I love the one in the Omni Centre in Edinburgh, and this was just as good. I had chicken, bacon and avocado and I always go for bunless to avoid the bread and it was delicious.
A quick afternoon of tourist dodging and visiting some typical sights (and a couple of selfies) we made our way to a Pandora shop to choose my Valentine's present then a pit stop for a Cosmopolitan. 
We finished off our day around Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. We bought our discounted musical tickets and had a Valentine's Dinner in Bubba Gump Shrimp. After visiting in New York we had to see what the British version had to offer and I'll do a review of it soon. With a 4.30am alarm we were exhausted by the end of dinner and headed straight back to the hotel to recharge for the next day.

What did you get up to on Valentine's?
