If you know me you’ve probably heard me say the words “Love” and “London” in the same sentence at some point in time. I’ve always loved London and though I’ve only been to the city once, it’s a place that’s almost always on my mind.

But even though it’s only been since last year since I’ve last visited London – I had to come back! This time bringing along Avery and my mom! Oh what fun!

After checking into our hotel – we were pump to start our day. We basically just walked around and explored the neighborhood which included The London Eye, Big Ben, a well-dressed guard & the famous red telephone booth!

Avery turned 28 weeks and regardless of where we are I have to take his weekly photo with the light up box.

On our first full day in London, we started off having brunch over at the vibrant Covent Garden in London’s West End. It’s a must-see destination for anyone who enjoys shopping, theatre, restaurants, bars, history and culture.

We made a quick stop at my favorite life-size bronze statue – The Ballerina. She sits in Broad court, opposite the Opera House.

We then took the tube to The Tower Bridge where we got to go on top and explore! More photos here.
Day 2:

We woke up early to take King Avery to see his future home – The Buckingham Palace and to experience The Changing of the Guard where I did a separate post here.

My moms name is Victoria – hence her excitement when a station is named after her!

Afterwards we walked to Westminster Abby and did a tour (photos where not allowed indoors) but just look at how gorgeous the outside is. Can you imagine how beautiful it is on the inside?!? I can 🙂

Walking back to our hotel and I couldn’t resist ‘horsing around’.
Day 3:

During our last day we ventured into Trafalgar Square and into The National Gallery which is a free art gallery.

Then went back into the tube and headed to Notting Hill to have a delicious Thai lunch and a nice cold beer at the famous Churchill Arms! Not only is the outside decorated but the inside is filled with London/Churchill-centric memorabilia and you guessed it…more flowers! This has got to be the prettiest pub in all of London!

We top the evening off by watching The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre. The theatre is gorgeous and the set was charming and elaborate. Not too mention the performance and the orchestra was outstanding.
